#SanctionPA movement works to get girls wrestling sanctioned in PA
Currently the PIAA does not officially sanction girls wrestling as a high school sport in the state. The PIAA has stated that 100 schools need to sponsor a girls wrestling team before they will sanction it and create a PIAA Girls Wrestling State Championship (25 schools are needed for "emerging sport" status).
SanctionPA is a movement intended to grow girls wrestling within PA and to get to that goal of 100 schools as quickly as possible.
Visit sanctionpa.com today to find lots of information on how you can help start a girls program at your school. There is even a template document and a template presentation you can use in your proposal for your school.
As part of the movement, 52 schools in PA have announced they are starting girls programs! Check the link below for more details on the movement and which schools are sponsoring girls wrestling starting in 2020-21!

2022 MyHouse PA Girls State Championships
While they await to be sanctioned by the PIAA, the girls held their state championship at the 2022 MyHouse PA Girls State Championships which was held at Central Dauphin HS.

Can't wait to see what next season will bring!
Saucon Valley and Bethlehem Catholic crowned state duals champions
After last season’s different team post-season due to the pandemic, this year’s full team tournament was a welcome sight. When the dust settled at the Giant Center in Hershey, new PIAA Duals Champions were crowned for 2022. For the first time in PIAA history, all 4 teams in the finals were from a single District – D11.
In AA, Saucon Valley beat Notre Dame-Green Pond 29-22 to claim their first ever PIAA Duals championship. Saucon Valley lost to Notre Dame twice earlier in the season but reversed those results in the biggest dual of the season. In the third place match, Chestnut Ridge defeated Boiling Springs 39-17.
In AAA, Bethlehem Catholic defeated Nazareth 34-22 to claim their 8th PIAA Duals championship in program history. It was their 4th win in AAA, to go with their 4 wins in AA. In the third place match, Waynesburg Central beat Williamsport 31-30.
Congratulations to all the teams for competing in the PIAA State Duals and especially to Saucon Valley and Bethlehem Classic for taking home the gold!

Explanation of how forfeits in tournaments are handled
This season, like most seasons, questions arise on how to properly give wins and losses to a wrestler that has withdrawn from a tournament (due to injury or any other reason). We contacted the PIAA to confirm how forfeits are supposed to be officially handled. We compiled a list of select scenarios that might happen, and how each should be handled. Check out the page below for all the details.
Over the next few days, we'll be making necessary adjustments to tournament results from this season to make sure everything matches the PIAA rules.
Reynolds wins fifth AA title in a row; Waynesburg claims first AAA title
The 2020-21 scholastic wrestling season concluded at Cumberland Valley HS on Saturday, March 27th with the finals of the PIAA Team Wrestling Championships. Despite the unusual nature of the season, the Reynold Raiders did what they have been doing for years now - winning the PIAA Class AA Duals championship. The Raiders won their fifth straight AA title, defeating Southern Columbia for the fourth year in a row. It was the eighth overall title for Reynolds.
After finishing second in AAA last year, Waynesburg won their first team championship with a 42-3 rout of Central Dauphin in the AAA finals. The Raiders were dominant in their three state duals matches, outscoring their opponents 146 to 28. Waynesburg also won the team title at the individual tournament as well.
Congrats to both teams on their championships!
