16 teams in the entire state are competing in the Dual Team State series? That's not a great level of participation, obviously.

I know not every club can fill a roster - my son's club included, but I'd think the number would be higher than that?

Who were the 16 teams and who qualified? Why is everything about this event top secret? Big Bash, Big Bash, Big Bash

People seem to cover their tracks good nowadays. Look at teams in the West or is that South Chicago now?
Does the IKWF clown car actually care? Most likely not.

Thatís 7 teams. Anyone know what other teams entered the duals? So it looks like at least 1 fourth place team qualifies. Pop the cork.

Wizards, Vittum Cats, and Celtics back in the day. That tournament was a meat grinder. Teams had 2-3 holes in their lineups and the rest of the kids were hammers. How many collegiate wrestlers competed in this event in years past? Kudos to the Bulldogs for being there every year. I would like to see how some of these teams compete without IESA kids. Does every kid that wrestles in the senior duals compete in the IKWF or do have of these teams rosters compete in the IESA state series?

I bet 95% of DiDi team rosters attend an IKWF regional. Why the drop off? Why doesnít the Twisters ever get in? Intelligent responses only please.

Yeah those were the days for sure. IMO just tough to field a full line up with kids split up between clubs and iesa. Sad to see as the team aspect is the way to keep the kids in wrestling longterm. To much individualism and kids parents bouncing them around to different clubs each year. But the white elelelephant in the room is egos at the top of these clubs muffling up a good thing.
