MSHSL says yay to Girls Wrestling, nay to Boys Volleyball

The 48 member Representative Assembly legislative body of the Minnesota State High School League met Tuesday with two big items on the agenda.

The items on the agenda were to add the sport of Boys Volleyball beginning in the spring of the upcoming 2021-22 school year and to add a Girls Wrestling post season beginning with the 2021-2022 school year.  A two-thirds majority vote was required for approval.

The Boys Volleyball proposal failed 29-18 with one voter abstaining.  32 votes were needed to pass.  Those speaking in favor prior to the vote on volleyball included Gwen Walz, wife of Governor Tim Walz, as they have an eight grade son who plays volleyball and Minnesota Golden Gophers Women’s Volleyball Coach Hugh McCutcheon.

The Girls Wrestling proposal passed on a 44-4 vote.  Girls wrestlers will continue to train and compete with the boys during the regular season but will now have the option of competing in a girls-only individual section and state tournament that would simultaneously with the boys tournament.
