UIL state wrestling meet moving to Garland's Culwell Center
The UIL Wrestling State Championships, held in Austin since 1999, are moving to Garland. The 2014 state meet will be held at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, the UIL announced Thursday.
The 2013 wrestling state championships expanded to three days at the Austin ISD Delco Center and Burger Center because of the addition of Class 4A.
"The Curtis Culwell Center has the capability to hold more mats, so boys and girls in both conferences will be able to compete in a two-day wrestling state championship," UIL athletic director Mark Cousins said in a news release. "As wrestling continues to grow in popularity and participation, we are excited to accommodate that growth with a first-class venue in Garland. The UIL would also like to sincerely thank Austin ISD for hosting the wrestling state championships for the past eight years."
