We have every ETR bracket here!

This website is all about Pennsylvania wrestling!  Our main coverage is on high school wrestling but we also have some info on junior high and middle school.  Click the links above for information on all twelve PIAA high school districts as well as every league and every team in the state.  Get all the latest results and stats on your favorite teams and wrestlers as well.  You can also visit our forums to catch up with other fans from around the state.

During the season, check out our tournament coverage featuring interactive brackets of regular and post-season tournaments.  Some tournaments have live updates as well.

PA-Wresting.com is excited to announce our partnership with Gear2Compete & Asics! We've teamed up with both of these companies in an effort to help promote the sport of wrestling and to cross-promote each other as well. Gear2Compete is a family owned and operated business entering their 18th year as a premier ecommerce supplier of sporting goods, including major wrestling brands like Asics.

We'll have some more announcements regarding these partnerships (including some available merchandise) in the near future, so stay tuned!

The 2022-23 scholastic wrestling season is now underway, and we're ready! The first competitions were allowed starting on Friday, December 2nd - a week earlier than normal. But the season is now here!

We're missing results!

Every season, we try to get EVERY result for all teams and wrestlers. That's a difficult task and we believe we are missing a few results this season. Check the link below for the latest list of the events we think we are missing. If you have results for those events or you know they never took place, please let us know!

This season, like most seasons, questions arise on how to properly give wins and losses to a wrestler that has withdrawn from a tournament (due to injury or any other reason).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.

When results are imported/entered at the conclusion of a tournament, we will make sure all results account for the official rulings.

Starting with the Class of 2023, PA-Wrestling.com is now going to be tracking college commitments from PA high school wrestlers. When a wrestler commits to wrestle in college, we’ll update our commitments page plus also list the commitment on their personal bio/stats page as well.

If you know of any commitments that we don’t have on our list, be sure to let us know by sending us an email!

SanctionPA

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, 96 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!

 


 

It's never too early to start looking towards next season! We’ve compiled the list of all returning wrestlers who participated in the 2021-22 post-season. You can view the list (including post-season tournament placing and season record) by clicking the link below. A printable version is available too via a PDF.

The annual "Road to Hershey" concluded with the 2022 PIAA Wrestling Championships at the Giant Center! You can look back over the entire post-season by clicking the links below for results from all the action around the state.

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. This season has seen an explosion in the number of girls participating in wrestling, as there are now 36 schools with official girls teams (at the time of the tourney). And it's just the start... Can't wait to see what next season will bring!

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!
