Indirectly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) announced on Monday that its State Wrestling Championships will be returning to Chattanooga for the first time since 2010.

The TSSAA says the tournament will take place between February 18th and 20th, and will be hosted by the Chattanooga Convention Center.

The Williamson County Ag Expo Center has been in use as a COVID-19 testing center since last spring. When it became clear the facility would not be available to host the championships, TSSAA began evaluating alternative sites. The Expo Center has served as the host for the previous 11 TSSAA wrestling championships beginning in 2010.

Division I Class A-AA will take place on Thursday, February 18th. Division II and Girls will compete on Friday, February 19th, and Division I Class AAA will compete on Saturday, February 20th.

In its release, TSSAA says a complete tournament schedule for both events will be published at as soon as details for both events are finalized.
