Here’s the difference one weight class can make... One of my wrestlers when I was coaching had a decent chance of qualifying for the state tournament at 98 lbs. no way he would’ve won it, and qualifying for the tournament would’ve been difficult but possible. At 91, he won the state title. Pinned his opponent early in the second period. At 167 I had a two time state champ I needed to beat to get to the state tournament, which was never going to happen. And there were 3 other guys who gave him a hard time. At 155, I had a good chance if the tournament played out right. I took second in the qualifiers (eliminating me) at 155. I’d have been out the second round at 167.
