Time for wrestling to embrace a new look?
February 21, 2017


The best high school wrestlers in New York had last week off before going to battle at the Times Union Center in Albany this weekend, so I figured this is a good time to examine one of the biggest questions in the sport — should an alternate uniform be allowed?

The traditional singlet is still being used almost exclusively in high school wrestling, but there has been a push to allow student-athletes to choose a compression (Under Armour-like) shirt and shorts during matches.

The trend picked up some steam thanks to the popular wrestling website Flowrestling.org after the compression shirt/shorts combo was used at the prestigious FloNationals wrestling tournament.
