Anyone who’s been to the La Crosse Center for the Bi-State Wrestling Meet knows what kind of an excellent, intimate atmosphere the arena provides for high school wrestling. So it’s natural that the venue will get a golden opportunity.
The WIAA yesterday approved the Center as the location for the first-ever girls state wrestling tournament. The addition of girls state wrestling has been requested for quite some time.
In addition, the WIAA board of control also has relaxed mask mandates for its outdoor spring sports tournaments. The official wording states that masks can be removed if appropriate social distancing can be attained. On top of that, the board has, among other things, lowered the quarantine time period for close COVID contact from 14 to six days as long as symptoms aren’t present, and also said that vaccinated student athletes no longer have to quarantine if they are symptom free.
