I don't want to raise my kid with limitations, but to each there own I guess. The NCAA's used to allow this but HS kids were going and beating college kids so they stopped it. Clearly there was pressure nationally to allow HS athletes compete again so they brought it back. I suspect states like MI,MN,IL and Iowa will take advantage of it more then we will here in WI.
Lets try and be progressive and aggressive for one time in WI, are current rules make this a good thing for our elite wrestlers. We have enough WIAA rules and cultural anchors holding elite kids back in WI. Lets take advantage of something that can help our kids get some recognition that they may not normally get.  Remember we have  goofy rule's that do not allow our kids to go to tournaments that Prep Schools like Blair Academy attend, So we have limited or capped our kids from quality competition enough IMO. I understand we may only have 10 or 12 kids a year that are at the level to attempt these tournaments but its there choice and I personally like to see that kids have a choice.

Curious, why does the WIAA have this "prep school" clause?    PREP SCHOOLS ARE 13YRS, SO KIDS CAN BE 20.

Every Wisconsin school, Augsburg, and and a few others would all be in the same Regional.

One streaming issue caused you to not get Flo?

They have had multiple streaming issues from what I've read.

Streaming all the time since Fargo started the other day. No issues, and I live out in the country, and my cable signal is traveling far from any 'centers'....

Awesome to hear that.  Thank you sir.

As you know, I'm all for wrestling the best competition, as we do. I just don't think PA and Ohio or Indiana are "local" tournaments. Remember this will take one multi away from your high school season limits. If you can win the Cheesehead, Iron Man, or the Beast of the East, this may be for you to try. It will be interesting to see who would try this. There would need to be a discussion between, the coach, kid, parents and school, in my opinion.

>The WIAA allows two none school events that you can do on your own that doesn't effect the Team. That rule was put in place in 2016 for gymnastics and swim but it does apply to wrestling as well.
>If you are a WIAA Athlete you can not compete at the Iron Man or The Beast of the East because they allow Prep Schools.
>Jesse Thielke and that group used to enter college opens until the NCAA banded HS kids.
> If you are at a level that college opens are a legit consideration then anything in the Midwest is local.

This is good stuff. The Stevens Point will be that much more interesante.
Agree could see quite a few HS kids go challenge themselves.
