Champions and contenders come in every shape and size at the CIF State Wrestling Championships, which, for the first time in state history, will run the boys' and girls' tournaments simultaneously over three days at Bakersfield's Rabobank Arena.
There will be another significant change in programming.
Saturday begins with the boys' and girls' semifinal bouts at 9 a.m. The finals are set for 5 p.m. The state will run boys' and girls' finals at the same time on neighboring mats, and podium ceremonies will be conducted near the head table following each of those matches. In the past, podium ceremonies were conducted after the tournament, one weight at a time.
FrontRowPreps.com reporter Ron Agostini will chronicle the historic meet. For updates, follow him on Twitter @frontrowpreps.
