We are making great headway on Team Indiana for the Indiana vs Illinois All Star Classic Duals.  We have reached out to many of the top two seniors from each weight class.  Please respond to us asap if you have not done so already.  There are already many great wrestlers on this 2016 team.  We want to take our best team to Illinois this year.  Our policy is if someone declines, then we move right down the list to the next highest placer.  Please know that if there is a wrestler that cannot attend, then we will be reaching out to the alternate immediately to complete the team.  Therefore, please respond as soon as possible.

 

This is the 23rd Annual Dual of this event.  It is a special event that has had many, many, many of Indiana'a best wrestlers on Team Indiana.  We encourage everyone that has the opportunity to be a member of this team to join!

Does everyone on that roster wrestle or will they wrestle off for the spot at practice. How does that work?

There are 2 duals.  The highest placer from our state tournament wrestles a big-school team from Illinois and the other guy from us wrestles an Illinois small-school team.  They usually beat us with their big-school team and we usually beat their small-school team.

How does this work since Illinois has 3 divisions? Is it Illinois (2A/3A) vs. Indiana 1 and Illinois (1A) vs. Indiana 2?

When they had 2 classes, it used to be strictly 2A and 1A in the 2 duals, but now they mix and match a bit...generally, it's a mix of 3A and 2A for the top team and 2A and 1A for the second team.
