NFHS changes high school wrestling weights

The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) made a fairly major announcement Tuesday, revealing an overhaul to the weight classes used in high school wrestling. The move is not an out-of-nowhere surprise — some sort of weight class changes have been batted around before — but it’s still significant: The last time high school weight classes received a major makeover was during the 1988-89 season.
You can read a full story about the changes on GameTimePA.com here. Listed below are the original weight classes, and what the new ones will look like.
