The first girls state wrestling tournament will be held on February 22nd and 23rd at Hilliard Davidson High School

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) – Wrestling history will be made the weekend of February 22nd and 23rd at Hilliard Davidson High School when girls will take to the mats vying for the first ever state championships in 14 weight classes along with a team championship.

Over 400 entries are expected for the event. Many states already sponsor high school wrestling for girls and with the increased number of girls participating on boys teams, the decision to recognize the girls separately in Ohio was made by the Ohio High School Wrestling Coaches Association (OHSWCA) in June of 2019.
