The National Federation of High School Associations has changed the landscape of prep wrestling.
In its meeting April 4-6 in Indianapolis, the NFHS wrestling rules committee voted on several changes.
Among them is the first complete weight-class overhaul in 23 years. Beginning with the 2011-12 season, weight classes are 106 pounds, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220 and 285.
LaRue County coach Gary Canter said the weight classes are similar to what they were when he wrestled in high school in the 1970s.
