It was announced Saturday night before the start of the CIF Wrestling Tournament at Rabobank Arena that the tournament will remain in Bakersfield through 2020 thanks to a new five-year agreement.

The tournament has been in Bakersfield since 2004. There was a strong buzz circulating that this year would be the last in Bakersfield, with Ontario being a possible destination.

According to the release: Official site visitations have concluded and the CIF Executive Committee will vote, March 26, to affirm the recommendation to extend the agreement with Bakersfield.

"CIF and our almost 800,000 student-athletes are grateful to the city of Bakersfield, its community and Rabobank Arena for their commitment,” CIF Executive Director Roger L. Blake said in a statement. “We are proud to continue to call Bakersfield the home of the CIF Boys Wrestling State Championships.”

Next year's tournament will run March 4-5, 2016.
