Prep Wrestling: Postseason Changes Headline New Look Wrestling

KILJ — In a major shakeup this year, Iowa High School wrestling will drop sectional tournaments in Classes 1 and 2A and move the annual State Dual Team tournament to that previously occupied date.

As a result of those changes, all three classes will now compete solely in district tournaments to determine individual qualifiers to the state tournament.

Eight additional wrestlers will be added to each field, bringing the number of qualifiers up to 24 per weight class.

A new facility for the state dual team tournament has not yet been determined.

The traditional individual state tournament will continue to run over four days on its previously scheduled week.
