The state wrestling tournament is around the corner, and the full schedule of events has been released.
The three-day event, scheduled for March 11-13, will be held at Southwest Motors Events Center in Pueblo. It includes the first-ever sanctioned state tournament for girls wrestling on the Thursday of Championship Weekend.
Due to capacity limitations, the event is not open to general public. Tickets will be distributed to schools of the student-athletes who qualified.
The event will be live-streamed.
"We're excited to provide a state culminating event for student-athletes in Season B," said CHSAA assistant commissioner Adam Bright, who oversees wrestling. "While we're at a different venue, the tradition of the CHSAA state wrestling tournament continues.
"We started the conversation from a dual-only format, but with the tradition of wrestling being an individual and team competition, we fought hard to secure a variance that allows for a more traditional format with an expanded capacity," Bright added.
The regional wrestling tournaments are being held this weekend, and will be following their local county health guidelines for capacity limitations.
Following the completion of that competition, the state wrestling tournament brackets will be released on Sunday.
The schedule of events is below.
