Are these the weights the kids have signed up at or the weights they wrestled during the season?

Overall this doesn't look to be very stacked just yet.

I'm updating the tournament website periodically with a list of committed wrestlers. It shows the weight they are registered at.

Give it a few days. The registration just went live last night.

That makes 10 All State wrestlers so far and 7 SQers waiting to get in. Nice
How can we tell? The list showing the SQers is no longer on this thread.

I've had phone calls from Indiana and Iowa to enter the tournament. IF we do not fill up with all Illinois(IHSA) wrestlers, we will allow out of state participants. Stand-by for more information on that...

I think I see why Plano folded their all star program

It looks like the 3A wrestlers are folding it in and gaining weight. By my count only 5 place winners from 3A? Is there any sign that more will be coming? Looks like a lot of 1A guys are going to be seeing hte same people they faced in Champaign!

The only way out-of-state wrestlers will be allowed is the lack of participation from Illinois wrestlers. I would say the chances of us opening it up to those kids would be very slim. We have 41 registered and we've only been open for 3 days now. But, it is an option out there we are considering...

On that note; of the 41 Illinois kids registered, the great majority of them are top notch.
