As he grows, so does his stature
January 2, 2011Cary High School
Cary's Ben Creed knew he might have to adjust to a higher weight class when it became harder and harder for him to make weight toward the end of his sophomore year. The two-time state champ in the 103-pound class was hitting his growth spurt.
Standing on the scales one day that summer, Creed came to the realization he was not going to be 103 pounds by the time he was a junior. Not by a long shot.
In a few months, he grew four inches in height and jumped the 112, 119 weight classes, landing in the 125 class.
"It was kind of incredible because I never thought the growth spurt was going to happen," said the once-diminutive Creed. "At the same time, I was like 'what the heck am I going to do next year?' "
Added size is usually a good thing in sports.
