New State Format for Championships for 2018

The MPSSAA has decided to revamp the state wrestling championships again this year. The state has decided that there will now be four dual meet champions, one each for each of the states classifications. This change will replace the previous two dual meet championships of a combined 1A/2A for the small schools and the 3A/4A championships for the large schools.

The dual meets champions will again be decided by fighting though the four regions of the state with the top four schools in each classification and geographic area qualifying based on win percentage of 13 dual meet season.

The Individual state tournament will be altered as well and will for the first time not keep team scores, but will instead simply not the individual weight class champions.
