Iowa Hosts Tourney

January 8, 2019

Last week, the Iowa Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association announced that it plans to hold a high school girls' wrestling state tournament on January 19 at Waverly-Shell Rock High School.

According to the Des Moines Register, the IWCOA will sponsor and conduct the tournament, in which all girls on Iowa High School Athletic Association-sponsored wrestling teams are allowed to compete. Weigh-ins will be held at 8:30 a.m. and the competition will start at 10:30 a.m.

The number of female wrestlers has increased significantly in recent years. Last year, there were 16,562 female wrestlers, up from 5,527 in 2007-08, and in Iowa, there are 164 wrestlers this season, up from 40 in 2013-14.

The top six placers in each of the 10 weight classes will be recognized, as will the top three teams. Teams will be given a score based on how their members perform, and each team may have up to 10 members earn points for the team by competing.
