Coach's Corner - V
Our Varsity Wrestling Program consists of competitions for our top 15 wrestlers at the following weight classes:
99, 106, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220 and 285 Pounds.
This level requires wrestlers who have developed a combination of physical strength, knowledge of techniques, and mental toughness.
The top wrestler in each weight class is determined through the boys wrestling each other in wrestle-offs.
Wrestlers will wrestle in dual meets whenever the opposing team has a wrestler of appropriate weight. If the opposing team does not have a wrestler at that weight class our wrestler is awarded a forfeit and our team gains the maximum possible points for that bout.
The bulk of Varsity experience is gained at tournaments. Tournaments come in a variety of formats including team dual meet, individual round robin and indivdual bracketed. Regardless of the format, these tournaments are all day affairs, allowing all participants multiple matches.
A Varsity Letter is earned when a wrestler accumulates 12 points. Wrestlers earn 2 points for a victory and one point for a loss.
