INA to provide photos from State Wrestling Tournament

IHSAA 2021 State Wrestling Championships

The Iowa High School Athletic Association and the Iowa Newspaper Association are again working together to facilitate the INA Photography Pool service for Iowa newspapers during the 2021 State Wrestling Championships. 

The IHSAA will be announcing changes and possible restrictions later this week for its annual state wrestling tournaments. The tournaments are currently scheduled for February 17-20 at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.  The Iowa Newspaper Association is in discussions with the IHSAA regarding updated procedures for credentialed media, including likely workspace and capacity limitations at the venue. Both the INA and IHSAA encourage newspapers to utilize the INA Photo Pool and to consider staffing requirements before credential registration opens on February 14, 2021.  IHSAA plans to post media procedures in the days following its tournament release. Visit the IHSAA Media page for more information:   The IHSAA will have all state-qualifying wrestlers listed on its website at by Sunday, Feb. 14.
