Sad but necessary changes could be coming to Pennsylvania wrestling weight classes

Sad, but necessary.

That’s the best way to describe what the PIAA’s Wrestling Steering Committee has recommended to the Board of Directors about weight classes.

The committee voted 13-1 in April for the board to submit a 12-weight class proposal to the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) for use in the 2020-21 season and -- here’s the really radical part -- to use 12 classes in PIAA competition even if the NFHS doesn’t act.
