This says it all about the 103 lb class - it should not exist in High School - should it? Please comment! Observer Reporter should make this a poll question on their web site - I would like to see what the general population thinks of this wt. class.

Anon, the Greek's Opinion: There should not be a freshman feeder weight class for small people in high school. Weight Classes should represent all four (4) grades of students.

Why would you say that? This tourny is made up of Seniors only and they don't have a 103 class. Why? - Because there are nearly no seniors at 103 unlike every one of the other weight classes. It shouldn't be a weight class.

Going to be a great time! Congrats to all who made the team!

Kyle McWreath at 189? I didn't realize he was an undersized 215 pounder. Glad to see him in the lineup.

What a team from the U.S. I dont see the PA team having much of a shot going up against a lineup like that. On the other hand I would take my chances with the WPIAL lineup against a lot of teams. Good luck to all the PA boys. On another note. I agree that 103 should be dropped. would love to see the new weight classifiactions pass with the starting weight being at 106.

I would be in favor of dropping heavyweight, Aren't we supporting childhood obesity in this country by adding another overweight teenager weight class.

I would be in favor of dropping idiot parents from posting on boards and not letting them attend their sons matches.

@8:34 post: I think that in other states, they allow you to wrestle varsity starting in your 7th grade year. That is how they have so many wins, and state titles.

8:05 - that is true. It is based on no junior high program.

I'm assuming you have'nt seen too many heavyweights wrestle lately.Maybe locally you may see some overweight kids but most are just big athletes.

Hwt is a class that is represented by all classes of students - Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen. It is a real weight class. 103 is not. It is extremely rare to see upperclassmen in weight class. This tournament reflects this. Its a freshman sophomore tournament at 103 which is hard to legitimize the weight class.

That is the difference the two bookend classes.

If they are big athletes how is it that they can't execute a duck under or a funk roll? A Outside Single or a scramble that lasts over five seconds?

They can, they chose not to. It's called wrestling smart. Obviously you haven't watched many heavy weight matches where good wrestlers were involved. Most of the Heavies now are your Linebacker type kids that are strong athletes.

Anyone see tarley and rizzo wrestle at hwy? Both rb and line backers for their football teams. Pretty good for non athletes.

103 always has been and always will be one of the most exciting classes. It may be 106 next year, but it will be exciting. There are freshmen at every weight class. And please remember freshmen can be dominating at any weight class. IE: Solomon Chishko at 130 this year.

Chisko..marstetler...guy who won triple a 215 and dont forget the guys like guillibon and beckman and megaludis who wrestled 103 as freshman. I'm not positive but didn't kolat wrestle 103 his freshman year? The fact is not all the guys at 103 are cutting weight to get there...some of these kids either haven't matured or grown big enough yet.

Yawn blah,blah,blah. Hey guys there are some pretty impressive wrestlers comin to town this weekend. Should be an awesome event. Special good luck to a fellow CM wrestling brother Nicky Catalano. I`m lookin foward to the great display of talent down in the Burgh. Maybe you guys could anonymously talk about some of the great matchups instead of wasting space on talking about 103. Really. So what if barely any seniors if any wrestle there.IT IS WHAT IT IS.
