WIAA adds girls wrestling for 2021

Girls on the peninsula's three wrestling teams will have their own state championship series beginning in 2021. 


The WIAA Board of Control unanimously approved the adding an individual state tournament for girls beginning with the 2021-22 season despite not reaching certain benchmarks for participation. There will not be a team version of the state tournament for girls until the number of girl-only teams increases in Wisconsin. Under WIAA rules, girls will also not be able to fill weights for boys teams trying to compete for their own team sectional and state berths once the series is set up. 


Southern Door, Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol, and Kewaunee each had one or more girls get a match at the high school level last year.
