NYWAY 2021 Open State Championship

May 8th & 9th, 2021


Our 2021 NYWAY Girls State Championship will NOT be a part of this event.  We will hold the girls their own event on June 19th, 2021 @ Main Street Armory.  All-female wrestlers can participate in the Open State Championship if they choose to.

 This will allow us to spotlight our female wrestlers in New York!  

Let's continue to grow Women's Wrestling!
