Since 1994, the number of females wrestling at the high school level has grown from 804 to over 28,000, according to the National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA). Deep South Duals Tournament Director David Hall stated, "We are looking forward to another record-breaking wrestling event in Hoover!"
