AIA sorts out wrestling postseason schedule

PHOENIX, AZ (February 11, 2014) – After the investigation of the reported skin infections, the AIA has rescheduled the Division III and IV State Wrestling Tournaments to Friday and Saturday, February 14 & 15, at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, Ariz.  The Division I and II Sectional Wrestling Tournaments have been rescheduled for Saturday, February 15, taking place at their original locations as well.  The Division I and II State Wrestling Tournaments will be held on Friday and Saturday, February 21 and 22, at Tim's Toyota Center.  The complete schedule with full details for all divisions will be posted by Noon tomorrow at: http://www.aia365.com/championships/wrestling.

"We recognize that the postponement of the wrestling tournaments was an inconvenience but when compared to protecting the health and wellbeing of our students, it was choice that had to be made," says AIA Executive Director, Dr. Harold Slemmer. 

It is imperative that schools, parents and participants remain vigilant about preventing skin infections.  Any student playing a direct skin-to-skin contact sport is encouraged to inspect himself or herself at least once a day. If they have any questionable areas, they should let their coach know and be looked at by a physician so they can be given the proper treatment immediately.  Waiting could increase the opportunity for the infection to spread.  Mats, practice clothes, headgear and the inside of gym bags should be cleaned daily.  Wrestlers should use antibiotic soap and always shower before leaving the gym.  Some coaches also recommend a 4% solution of of chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) such as Hibiclens -- a surgical scrub soap -- to clean the skin. It remains on the skin for 24 hours.
