The finalists for the 1950 State Tournament were determined in a regional tournament on March 10th at Weston where six teams participated. After weigh-ins, the wrestlers were placed in a blind draw to determine pairings. The two finalists in each weight then advanced to the State Tournament in Morgantown two weeks later. Fred P. "Chick" Weihl, principal of Weston High School and WV Athletic Association Board of Appeals member was the Regional Tournament Director. Whitey Gwynne, WVU Athletic Trainer and former WVU Mat Coach was the Regional Referee.
