Some girls are offered the chance to wrestle boys when in a smaller HS program. Most are only offered the opportunity in freestyle.
Some high schools forbid it all together on the girls wrestling team while at practice.
It offer advantages and disadvantages for many. As many times as I have brought up the subject I now understand both sides. I do not see a general rule from the WIAA coming in anytime soon until participation numbers get higher.
From what I have learned we will be looking at an average of 8 to 10 girls for most teams before it is brought up again.
I don not think it is fair however to be allowed by one and not another and vice versa.
