Columbus, OH The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) has announced that RUDIS is the official title sponsor of the OHSAA State Wrestling Championships. Based in Marysville, Ohio, RUDIS is the leading provider of men’s and women’s wrestling shoes, custom team uniforms, and apparel. RUDIS is proud to be a part of this prestigious event featuring the inaugural year of the Girl’s Wrestling State Championships to be held at the Schottenstein Center.

In this historical year for Ohio wrestling, young men and women will compete side by side for a state title for the first time. 

“Winning a state championship is very special. It’s the first dream in many athlete’s lives, and in that way, it is often the most meaningful,” comments RUDIS Co-Founder & CEO Jesse Leng.

This year is a very meaningful first that RUDIS is proud to be a part of. It’s the first official year of the Girls OHSAA State Tournament and the first year of a long and meaningful partnership between RUDIS & The OHSAA.

The State Tournament is embedded in the roots of our foundation, and RUDIS is proud to be the official partner.”

“We are excited to have RUDIS be a part of our state wrestling tournament and are pleased to connect them with our member schools further,” said Doug Ute, OHSAA Executive Director. “We share the same philosophy with RUDIS: high school sports prepare kids for life. We thank them for supporting high school wrestling and the OHSAA.”
