Wisconsin Wrestling Challenge Series Finals Brackets* Released

Brackets for the third Wisconsin Wrestling Challenge Series Finals on Saturday, January 21 at Wausau West have been released.

The WWCS Finals Brackets may be viewed HERE.

*ATTENTION: Check back often, as some brackets will change over the next two weeks due to qualifiers who are not able to attend the WWCS Finals in Wausau. When the WWCS is notified a qualifier is not attending, a predetermined draw system is in place to identify and invite another Region participant to compete in the Finals. The system is a draw among Regions so the next place winner at a Region may not be the next invited.

Finals Information for Coaches

Top 3 Place finishers at each weight class from the 8 Region sites (1-7-17) WRESTLERS will advance to the WWCS Final at Wausau West High School. Please notify Dan Hein (Tournament Director) by Tuesday, January 10th following the Region meet if your wrestler(s) is not able to compete at WWCS Final. We will attempt to fill all 24 spots on the Finals bracket. In the event a weight class at any Region does not have 3 wrestlers, or a qualifier is not able to compete, there will be a random draw by Region to fill all Finals 24 man brackets. This process allows all Regions to have equal opportunity, and 4th place finishers to compete if there are openings. Those schools will be notified by Wednesday January 18th if their wrestler is drawn to compete at the Final.
