Big changes in Iowa High School Wrestling

Posted:
BOONE (KWWL) -

The Iowa high school wrestling tournament has been shortened from four days to three starting next year and the state dual meet has been moved to Des Moines.

The Iowa High School Athletic Association announced the changes on Wednesday.

The dual meet leaves Cedar Rapids after 17 years. It will now be held the day before the start of the traditional state meet.

Prep officials say changing the individual state tournament to a three-day format allows the state duals to be wrestled on all eight mats in Wells Fargo Arena.

Alan Beste, the association's assistant executive director, says the loss of school time created by the four-day tournament has been a major concern for school officials.

Officials also say the changes will also cut down on excess travel.
