OHSAA adds girls wrestling, boys volleyball


The Ohio High School Athletic Association voted on Thursday to add two sports to the emerging sports category, starting with the 2022-23 school year. As emerging sports, girls wrestling and boys volleyball will be administered like the OHSAA’s current 26 recognized sports, but will have additional requirements according to OHSAA General Sports Regulation 16 that could lead to full sanctioning in the future. With the addition of girls wrestling and boys volleyball, the number of OHSAA sports grows to 28, with 14 for girls and 14 for boys. The Ohio High School Wrestling Coaches Association has been conducting a girls wrestling tournament since 2020, and the Ohio High School Boys Volleyball Association has been conducting its tournament since 1988. The OHSAA also committed to discuss partnering with a group to provide a tournament in Esports (gaming).
