Miraculously, they are fat enough (at least according to the SUPER-accurate hydration / skin-fold tests), to make any weight they want, no matter how unbelievably skinny they appear to be.

This just looks like more data to support adjusting the weight classes. Over 100,000 in the 120-145 (five weight classes) and about 80,000 in the top seven weight classes. I understand a lot of kids do not wrestle their lowest weights which might distort the participation in the weight classes compared to the provided data.

I had never seen this blog before. I just wasted an hour reading older posts as well as this one. Some good stuff on here for sure. I don't agree with everything, but it is a really well done compilation and interpretation of the data that all the High School teams provide. Interesting stuff. I can easily see myself spending another hour going through much older posts.

Thanks for sharing.
