2019 CIF State Girls Wrestling Championships Placers

Well, wrestling at the CIF State Girls Wrestling Championships concluded a few minutes ago. The medal ceremonies should be taking place at the time that I am typing. Hopefully this year, as there were 32-wrestler brackets, all eight placer will receive a medal, and not just the top sic like in the past.

There were some surprises and some things that transpired exactly as expected, both on and off the mat. Some people seem to have loved this year’s format, while others hated every last bit of it. I’m sure there will be improvements made, if not outright changes. Whatever the state office decides to do next year, expect grumblings from all quarters.

As usual, the quality of wrestling has improved this year over last year’s. And yes, there is still a visibly apparent drop-off in skill level between the top-tier wrestlers and the rest. But I truly believe that the margin is shrinking.

There had been concerns that the addition of wrestlers to the brackets would dilute the quality of wrestling. But I think the opposite is true, just look at the LACS which last year, with 14 wrestlers, had five placers and this year with 42, finished with ten!

San Fernando Wins the Team Title!

As had been predicted by some quarter (California Girls Wrestling Podcast, I’m looking at you), this year’s winner came out of the LA City Section and it was in fact San Fernando with a total of 104 points. Second place went to Menlo Atherton with 92 points. Third place, went to the other candidate to win the team title, Birmingham, which finished with 76 points.
