HILLIARD, Ohio (AP) — Girls from around Ohio will be competing this weekend in the first girls wrestling state tournament.

The Ohio High School Wrestling Coaches Association is sponsoring the tournament. It's taking place Saturday and Sunday at Hilliard Davidson High School.

There will be state champions in each of the 14 weight classes and a team state champion.

Tournament organizers are expecting about 260 girls from nearly 100 schools to compete.

Last month, 10TV's Dave Holmes took a look at the sport's growth in Ohio including when it could be recognized as an official OHSAA sport.
