TOPEKA, Kan. – Regional girls wrestling originally scheduled for February 15 will now take place over two days, Friday, Feb. 14 and Saturday the 15th.

For the inaugural season, as of Jan. 2, there are 972 girls participating in Kansas with an alpha weight.

By rule, each wrestler is limited to five matches per day. The amount of matches needed to complete the regional would not be possible under the one day format.

One classification made up of 150 schools has been divided into two regionals. Brackets will be 16 or 32 person brackets. Each school will be permitted one entry per weight class and we will qualify the top six finishers in each weight class from each regional.

The state tournament is scheduled for February 27 in Salina.
