PJW Announcement


December 21, 2020


To the Wrestling community,


To say that this has been a tough year would be the understatement of the year.  The PJW Committee met and voted yesterday to cancel all Area and State tournaments for the 2020-2021 year.  This vote was one of the most difficult decisions our group has had to deal with.

Many factors went into today’s decision.  The uncertainty of facilities across the state being willing to host Area events.  Limitations and questions regarding the State championships.  The uncertainty of youth teams being able to practice across the state and ultimately the health and safety of our wrestlers and their families.

This is an unprecedented decision that comes in unprecedented times.

We wish everyone good health and safety as the new year approaches.

Yours in wrestling,

Steve Hoover

PJW Chairperson
