All Virginia Championship Series
(This award is for Virginia Residents only even though these events are open to out of state wrestlers)
The Virginia Challenge Wrestling Board is initiating a “New’ Championship Series of Events culminating in Awards for top wrestlers in all divisions. The divisions will be K-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8. Wrestlers competing in the VACW Events will earn points by placing in the top 6. The Outstanding wrestlers in each of these age groups will be determined at the end of the season events. The K-8 end of season event will be the Wrestle Fest and Grades 9-12 will be the Wrestle Fest Weekend events. Wrestlers who place in the final event and have the highest total points for the season earn the awards. We will present Trophies to the top 3 in each Division.
