If Boiling Springs makes the PIAA team championship semifinals, it will wrestle this year at Cumberland Valley High School. The Eagle Dome will host this year's team state championships semifinals and finals on March 27.

The final stage of the wrestling postseason is finalized.

The PIAA Team Wrestling Championships will be held March 22-27, with the semifinals and finals March 27 at Cumberland Valley High School.

The PIAA board of directors approved the plan during Wednesday’s meeting on Zoom.

The first and second rounds will be held at the higher seed’s gym.

That means locations and dates are set for every step of the team and individual postseason for District 3 teams.

And it means a very short trip for Boiling Springs, which won its ninth District 3 team title Monday.

Winter Sports FAQ: Can fans attend games? Who has to wear masks? What will the postseason look like?

Executive director Dr. Robert Lombardi said they aren’t sure they can have spectators at either the state individual or team championships due to COVID-19 capacity limits Gov. Tom Wolf’s office has put in place.

The Giant Center has a max capacity during the pandemic of 500 people, which will leave little to no room for fans.

The CV Eagle Dome’s capacity is lower, and it therefore might be tough to fit fans with having multiple teams competing that day.

All rounds of the postseason will be livestreamed, with sectionals livestreamed by the individual schools while the district championships and state regionals and championships all handled by FloWrestling.
