MSHSL approves two out of three proposed wrestling changes

The Minnesota State High School League Board of Directors met today, and several winter activity proposals, including three for wrestling, were on the agenda.

The Board of Directors approved a proposal to increase the number of girls-only wrestling events that do not count toward the team limit of 16, from four to eight. They also approved a proposal to codify the required format used for section individual tournaments. The proposal requires sections with 10 or more teams to administer a two-day tournament. A proposal seeking the addition of full wrestlebacks for the individual state tournament was not approved.

Details of the proposed rule changes can be found here.
