ABOUT MISSISSIPPI WRESTLING FOUNDATION

We exist because, until 2020, Mississippi was the only state in the United States that did not host a high school wrestling season.  Our goal is to grow the sport of wrestling at every level so that people of all ages have the opportunity to participate in and enjoy the oldest sport in history.
