PJWC Votes to Add Girls Divisions in 2017-18 PJW YOUTH STATE CHAMPIONSHIP

At its Fall meeting in mid-October, the Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling Committee voted to institute 3 Girls Divisions starting in the 2017-18 season. 

There will be 14 weight classes spread over the 8-U, 9-10 and 11-12 Age Divisions as a first effort for separate Girls Divisions.  All of these will be officially included in the 2017-18 season, and will advance to the Youth State Championships, but all Areas are hoping to do exhibition events for Girls in the upcoming 2016-17 season in an effort to spread the word and increase interest for Girls Wrestling in PA for the official kick-off in 2017-18.  These exhibitions in 2016-17 will be at the local Area level only, and will not include the State Championship event.  PJW will assess the participation in 2017-18, review how the new Girls Divisions worked, and then decide if any changes are required for future seasons.

More detail on the plan for 2017-18 will follow as they are finalized, but we welcome the separate Girls Divisions to PJW!
