Arkansas Activities Association sanctions girls' high school wrestling

Add Arkansas to the list of states which has said "yes" to separate wrestling competition for girls.

The Arkansas Activities Association voted unanimously this week to officially sanction girls' high school wrestling.

The decision was announced by Arkansas Wrestling Association President and Arkansas Wrestling Academy founder Greg Hatcher on Wednesday.

According to Hatcher, the girl's state wrestling tournament will be held the Thursday before the annual boy's state wrestling tournament in February at the Jack Stephens Center in Little Rock starting in 2020.

With this week's announcement, Arkansas becomes the third state to have sanctioned girls' wrestling in 2019, joining Colorado, Kansas and Maryland which announced similar news earlier this year. Now there will be a total of seventeen states which have sanctioned a separate state championship for female wrestlers.

I actually support this decision having two separate competitions for both genders. This will promote a safer environment and will avoid biases. | www.concretecharleston.com

This is great for girls' high school. They will also learn some defensive techniques and grappling to make their enemy immobile. I also support this.

I see nothing wrong with having two separate competitions. http://www.creativeresurfacingsolutions.com/
