(12-26-20) The Ohio High School Athletic Association informed member schools early in September in a memo that it is suspending the 2021 state duals wrestling tournament.due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

OHSAA Director of Officiating and Sport Management Tyler Brooks

“It saddens me to relay this information to the wrestling community. We all know that the dual team tournament provides a unique team environment and atmosphere for our sport that the individual tournament simply cannot. I don’t know what the future holds for the dual team tournament, if and when it could be resumed, or when that determination would be made.”

But thanks to the Ohio High School Wrestling Coaches Association (OHSWCA) they will now hold these championships at three different locations on February 6th, D I at Lakewood St. Edward, D II at Stuebenville and D III in Versailles.

The association will soon be announcing details of the Girls Wrestling Championships in early January.
