  1. The PIAA(Pennsylvania) passed a proposal to submit a proposal to the NFHS to reduce the weight classes to 12. Even without the NFHS's approval they may go ahead and go to 12 weights. Here are the weights 108, 115, 122, 128, 134, 140, 146, 152, 160, 172, 185, 215, and 285 Here is the article on the proposal https://www.lehighvalleylive.com/sports/2019/05/sad-but-necessary-changes-could-be-coming-to-piaa-wrestling-weight-classes.html Personally, I do not feel this fixes any issues other than putting a pretty bandaid on the problem. Bad teams will still forfeit weight classes, good teams will still have full lineups. The problems stem from the image of the sport and coaches that do not go about promoting the sport in the school. It takes a lot of work to get a program to the top and a lot more to keep it there. Discuss....
  2. Post here if you are a wrestler and looking to hook up with some dual teams, list your name, weight class(es) you want to wrestle, wrestling credentials, and contact info.

    Past regional qualifiers

    From at least 1994-2002 was the top 2 qualified for regional.
  6. The problem with this is that we have many lay coaches who aren't in the building all day long. Wrestling it seems has quite a few lay coaches and that does not help with recruiting and retention of athletes.

  13. It is up to the state, but 99% of the time states(Indiana especially) follow NFHS rules. I believe Faulkens is on the board for the rules so I would think he would not be looked upon favorably if we did our own thing.
  14. Here are the 12 weights they are proposing 110, 118, 125, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 190, 215, 285 https://www.pennlive.com/highschoolsports/wrestling/2019/05/piaa-will-vote-today-on-pilot-program-that-would-reduce-wrestling-weight-classes-from-14-to-12.html
  15. It happens a lot now, not going to make a difference overall. Moving into a school to be Brayton Lee's backup is great, you just better hope the coach chooses to bench someone in favor of you for the state series. This will help teams that have legitimate forfeits and let them get as many kids as possible to the post season. It also would help prevent some drastic weight cuts as kids at some programs know they have to cut extra weight so they can wrestle at sectional. If he beats him in the room he would be the starter who probably got most of the matches during the season. The one potential speed bump is getting your backup that would be entered enough varsity matches for seeding along with maybe some head to head wins for seeding.
  16. 14 sectional entries and you can enter two at a weight if you want. Michigan does this.
  17. They must not be able to count very well in Pennsylvania! In Indiana going to 12 weights "could" reduce forfeits by 40%, but that is artificial as I don't think it would help participation numbers. I would be all in if we had the 14 weights and we could enter two per weight at sectional in two or three weights. That would help two-fold, it would eliminate forfeits and prevent some of those that are making big weight cuts to make the varsity lineup. This type of rule would have a better affect on TRUE forfeits and on participation.
