Serving Kentucky's Schools and Student Athletes Since 1917

01/04/22 – Wrestling Postseason Update, Semi-State Hosts Sought

January 4, 2022 Athletic Department Blog Updates


With the wrestling season in full swing, the Association is looking to solidify postseason plans. With that in mind, our office is accepting applications to host the semi-state rounds of the wrestling postseason. Two hosts are needed for the semi-state round, preferably one in the eastern part of the state and one in the western part, with the events scheduled for Feb. 18-19. Any member school interested in hosting should contact Assistant Commissioner Joe Angolia ( to declare its interest by Monday, January 10.

Hosts have been finalized for seven of the eight regional tournaments, and are listed below for reference. The regional tournaments are scheduled for the weekend of Feb. 11-12. If a host site needs to be adjusted in response to local restrictions put in place due to the pandemic, please let our office know immediately.

  • Region 1 – Caldwell County
  • Region 2 – Bardstown
  • Region 3 – TBD
  • Region 4 – South Oldham
  • Region 5 – Simon Kenton
  • Region 6 – Bryan Station
  • Region 7 – McCreary Central
  • Region 8 – Montgomery County

As a reminder, per Board of Control policy, the two-pound growth allowance was added to each class boundary on December 25, thereby shifting the bounds of the class. The individual wrestler does not “receive” two pounds, the class weight limit is simply increased by two pounds.

Good luck with the remainder of the season and stay safe.
