Coaches in need of heavier wrestlers

November 30, 2011
Tri-Nine Conference



High school wrestling followers had all but memorized the sport's usual weight classes. But after an offseason national rule was changed, only three of last year's classifications remain for the start of this season.

In the spring, the National Federation of State High School Associations approved the biggest change to high school wrestling weight classes in 23 years.

Ten of the 14 weight classes have been changed in order to provide more equal options for wrestlers of all sizes.

Some of the changes are negligible, as many weight classes only increased their minimum weight requirement by a pound or two. But the biggest difference is in the higher weights.

The national changes have essentially removed the 140-pound class and replaced it with a new 182-pound class.

And that doesn't please many local coaches, whose teams have tended to be more heavy on depth in the lighter weights and thin in the heavier ones.
