2018 IHSA State Finals Match-Ups and Pick’em Contest

Here are your state championship match-ups for Saturday night. The grand march is scheduled to begin at 5:30pm with the championship matches to follow starting with 106-pounds.

For those wanting to enter our pick’em contest, simply reply to this thread in our forum with your picks for every weight and all three classes. You get 1 point for every correct result. Most points win. If there is a tie for most points, the earliest submission wins. You must submit your picks before the start of the first match Saturday night, and you must total and post your final score in the same thread by Sunday morning at 10:00am at which time we will confirm the winner. The winner will get a prize from GO EARN IT Wrestling Apparel. Good luck!
