(commentary) With 3 straight years of decreasing numbers of total HS wrestlers in Illinois the only component that is growing is female participation. At the current rate of decline some coaches and officials will find less work available in the coming years if more is not done to foster more growth and the creation of girls only teams like several other states have already done. The elevation of girls wrestling at the college level (about 40 schools now offer scholarships for women's wrestling - 3 of which are Illinois Schools) in almost every situation saved or helped with the creation of a new men's program. With 2-4 additional coaching jobs at each school as a result. In my opinion every coach or official in the state should want to foster growth in female wrestling...
Thank you for the post. I asked somewhat of the same question in the 1A thread. My reply - crickets.
