11/15/2012 – Information about Wrestling Realignment for 2013-2014

November 15, 2012 Wrestling Blog Updates

With the growth of wrestling (more than 15 schools have added in last seven years), and four new programs are starting this year, it is time to realign Wrestling. Many of the regions are taking more than one day to compete and have little room for growth and expansion of new programs. In addition, with the NFHS rules restricting athletes to five bouts in a day (including forfeits), the size of the bracket makes it problematic when they become so large and mandate a second day.

The information about this realignment is at www.khsaa.org/wrestling. Click on the link to Realignment. Commentary and feedback will be accepted from the member schools by clicking this link, http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Wrestling_20132014_Alignment_Survey  through January 22, 2013 prior to planned approval of a final alignment by the Board of Control on January 28, 2013.
