There will be champions crowned in 14 weight classes in three divisions. Wrestlers who finished first or second in each weight class at last weekend's eight Division 1 sectionals qualified for the State Tournament. The top three finishers in each weight class at the four Divisions 2 and 3 sectionals qualify for the tourney. There are 224 qualifiers for the championships in Division 1 and 168 in both Divisions 2 and 3. There are 221 programs represented at this year's individual championships, including 89 from Division 1, and 70 in Division 2 and 62 in Division 3. 

Burlington has qualified the most wrestlers in the Division 1 field with 11. Holmen is next on the list with 10. Luxemburg-Casco has the distinction of having qualified the most individuals in Division 2 with eight. Freedom has the second-most with seven. In Division 3, Stratford claims the most qualifiers with nine. Fennimore is second with eight. There are 22 former champions in the tournament field this year and 18 seeking to defend the title they won last year. 

Mineral Point has produced the most individual championships with 50. Stoughton is next with 48, followed by Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln with 44 and then Milwaukee South with 39. Others with significant totals are Luxemburg-Casco with 38, and Athens, Coleman and Ellsworth with 32. 

In Div. 3 There are eight former champions with seven returning to defend the titles they won last year. In addition, there are three multiple-time champs. Remarkably, two Stratford wrestlers return in their quest to win their fourth championship, a feat done by only 14 other wrestlers is State history. Senior A.J. Schoenfuss won the 106-pound crown in 2015, the 120 title in 2016 and again last season. He moves up a weight to 126 this season and has posted a 41-4 to this point of the season, which gives him a 174-14 record for his career. Senior Jeremy Schoenherr attempts to defend the title he won at 138 last season after earning the championship at 126 in 2016 and at 113 in 2015. He enters State tournament action undefeated at 33-0. He hasn't been defeated since his sophomore season, and has amassed a 136-6 record in his career. Junior Brock Schlough of Boyceville is in pursuit of his third State championship. After winning the 138-pound title in 2016 and the 160-pound crown last season, he moves down a weight to 152 this season. He has yet to lose this season at 44-0, which gives him a 129-5 record in his three years of competition.

Senior Ryan Anderson of Clear Lake targets a return to the championship form that earned him the 106-pound title in 2016. He has compiled a 40-0 record this season and a 123-3 tally the last three years. Junior Koltin Grzybowski of Coleman moves up a weight class to 113 this year after winning gold at 106 last season. He has a 42-2 record this year and a 120-10 mark in his three seasons. Junior Caleb Gross of Coleman moves up to 120 after earning the title at 113 last season. He owns a 44-1 record for the season, which gives him an 84-4 mark over the past two seasons. At 132,  junior Trevor Wanek of Fennimore is targeting a second title after winning the 126-pound championship last season. He enters competition with a 43-6 mark this year and a 109-30 in his three seasons. Senior Garrett Joles of Boyceville brings a great deal of tournament experience with him this week in an attempt to win his second straight championship at 195. He also has a pair of runner-up finishes, at 170 in 2015 and at 182 in 2016. He's undefeated this season at 39-0, which gives him a 158-10 record for his career.

For the 75th Anniversary celebration, the WIAA will be recognizing each of the 14 four-time champions in the history of the individual tournament. The champions will be announced, and those attending will be assisting in the awards ceremony. For a complete list of all-time individual wrestling champions and the number of champions by school, access the WIAA website and navigate to the State Results Archive page from the wrestling homepage.
