The NCAA women’s national tournament is this weekend in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. All three divisions are combined on the women’s side, and here is some info about the qualification process.
50 teams, 28 of which are DIII, entered wrestlers in the five regions two weeks ago. The top four wrestlers at each weight qualified for the championships. The field is 198 wrestlers, as Region IV only had two entries at 101 lbs. Approximately 400 wrestlers entered the regionals (around 170 DIII), with each team allowed to enter up to 15 wrestlers (no more than two in the same weight). 37 of the 50 teams qualified at least one athlete to the national championships.
