You can check it out at the above link. If they go with this plan, I count only about 20 schools with wrestling teams in Division 1.
How many state tournaments do we need?
Surely 1 & 2 should have a combined event. Then there could be tournaments for 3, 4, 5, & 6 or they could be combined in some fashion.
Regardless, perhaps now is the time to begin the debate about a final unified individual tournament following all the divisional state tournaments?
My mind is spinning at the thought of any more than 3 divisions. Personally I think 2 would be nice.
I agree......1-3 and 4-6 that would be better, any more than that would not be a very good choice and weaken the title of "State Champion"
1&2, 3&4, 5&6, that would make for very little change. sounds good to me.

Two things it’s about every kid get a trophy and Money! More divisions more district’s' and state's tournaments money which I’m sure isn’t much in wrestling but Football/basketball it all adds up
Go Forge, Go Powerhouse!
You hit the nail on the head wdybronco. Lower the bar so everybody gets a trophy and make more money! Hopefully, we can band together and keep them from screwing up wrestling, no matter what they do to the other sports.
