Wisconsin Wrestling Academic All-State Honors will be given to wrestlers who meet the academic criteria listed below and qualified for WIAA 2019-2020 Individual Sectionals. Recognizing individuals in this manner will demonstrate excellence in both areas - on the mat, and in the classroom. Each wrestler’s cumulative GPA will be used when compiling the list of honorees to be recognized. Health conditions in our country have resulted in an amended process for 2019-2020.
All Wisconsin High School Head Coaches will be emailed these guidelines and a link to nominate wrestlers. Please contact the head coach at your high school if you or your wrestler meets the criteria and should be nominated.
Application Deadline - April 28, 2020
1. All wrestlers who participated in the 2019-2020 WIAA Individual Sectional Meet are eligible.
2. Wrestler’s cumulative GPA at the end of the most recent grading period of the current school year will be used.
3. Recognition will be given to nominated wrestlers who have a GPA** of 3.5 or above, based on a 4.0 scale and qualified for the WIAA Individual Sectionals in the 2019-2020 School Year.
**Schools that use a weighted grading scale must convert their wrestler’s grades to an unweighted scale before submitting their grade point averages.
