IHSAA makes changes to postseason tournaments for 2022-2023 wrestling season

The Iowa High School Athletic Association’s (IHSAA) wrestling postseason will feature additional qualifiers, a new schedule and updated qualifying after several sport advisory recommendations were approved at the Wednesday, April 27 meeting of the IHSAA Board of Control.​

In a major shake-up to start with the 2022-2023 school year, wrestling will drop Sectional tournaments in Class 2A and Class 1A and move the annual State Dual Team Tournament to that previously occupied date. As a result of those changes, all three classes will now compete solely in District tournaments to determine individual qualifiers for the State Traditional Tournament.

An additional recommendation for 24 qualifiers per weight class at the State Traditional Tournament also received approval at that April 27 meeting.
