  1. Everyone...I've got the form signed. Emailed Robert yesterday. My AD emailed him the day before. The only thing I can think of is that the minimum weight says 120.3...that's the lowest he can be at 7%. That would be the only sticking point I could see. But that hasn't been mentioned as the issue. Here is our back and forth... Good Morning Mr. Faulkens, Yesterday, you spoke with my AD, Ryan Johnson, concerning a young man that has 6.74% BF with an Alpha Weight of 120.0. In reading over the doctor's clearance form and the explanation sheet we gave to the doctor, I still can't give an accurate reason to the wrestler and his parents as to why he can't wrestle 120. If his Alpha Weight is 120.0 and the doctor's clearance form gives him permission to wrestle at his Alpha Weight, shouldn't he be able to compete at 120.0? On the explanation to the doctor, it states "If you give permission for the wrestler to compete at his Alpha Weight, please circle A." A states that he can compete at his alpha weight or the weight class above. The example given in A doesn't account for a wrestler with an Alpha Weight at an exact weight class. Ex. Wrestler weighs 110 and is under 7% BF, so he must wrestle 113. That's easy to understand. But what if the wrestler was at 113 and under 7%. Wouldn't he still be able to compete at 113? Any clarification you can give would be appreciated. As you can probably tell, I'm confused and I want to be able to communicate effectively to the wrestler and the parents. I appreciate your time and look forward to hearing from you! From RF... First of all, the Physician’s clearance simply notes that he can wrestle without having to gain the weight to be at 7% body fat. The rule is that an underweight wrestler wrestles at the weight class which immediately exceeds the alpha weight.
  2. I've already made the call. My AD as well. Faulkens says 126. I still disagree with him.
  3. I have a 120lber that has 6.74% BF, so he is below 7% (obviously). His Alpha Weight is 120.0. Does he wrestle 120 or 126? The IHSAA says 126.

  5. Three Rivers Conference has been moved to Friday at 5pm. Maconaquah HS.
  6. I'll be completely transparent. Our 106 just got back from a broken wrist suffered in PE. Saturday was his first match. Our 113 from last year quit. Our 126/132 has been very sick. He was there but not healthy. Our 138 has pneumonia. Our 160, 182, and 195 are serving a suspension and will be back for Conference and the post season. Christmas Break was not very kind to us this year. Oh, and our heavy weight just quit right after team state because "It's just too hard" (Been wrestling since elementary school.). Oh, and our 126 freshman broke his arm on Saturday in the second round. Yep, I think I got it all... We'll regroup...we still have some good wrestling left in us.
  7. Isn’t Fielden at 170? You probably have the inside scoop but he’s 170/182 all year?
