“The WSAZ”, as it’s known in scholastic wrestling circles, is one of the biggest events in the wrestling season, leading up to the state tournaments. More than one thousand competitors come from schools throughout Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia and occasionally as far away as Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Indiana. Wrestlers range in age from middle school to high school seniors.

The tournament will begin with preliminary matches on Friday, starting at 1:15 PM and continue throughout the evening. Matches resume on Saturday at 10:00 AM, and conclude with the championship rounds starting at 6:00 that evening.

Trophy presentations follow Saturday evening and will be hosted by WSAZ NewsChannel 3.
