  2. You have 23 weight classes for MS. Will that be how many there are for the duals tournament?

    If not, which weight classes will be selected?

    And it’s getting close, we need registration information soon to provide to our team to finalize participation.

    • These are the weights for the MS Duals- same as 7th–8th Grades:
      70,75,80,85,90,95,100,105,112,119,126,135,145,155,175,HW 250 Max
      5th – 6th Graders are on the ES Duals with the Dale Duals

  3. The duals info shows a cut off birth year of 2003 for middle school. A majority of our 8th graders are a 2002 birth year. Is this a misprint? Every other event has been 2002. If this is the case we will have many holes.

  4. A kid in 5th grade is still in elementary school. Why are they required to wrestle in the middle school bracket? Thanks.

    • In this event we have always had a 5th-6th grade group and a 7th-8th grade group.6th is Elementary in some places and middle school in others. the important thing is they are just a 2 year age gap.

  5. I have a 4th grader who is 115lbs. No other kids are signed up except in 105lb class. Would he have to move up to middle school division?

  6. So far there are 19 95 pounders in the 7th and 8th grade bracket-and not one 100 pounder in the 7th and 8th grade bracket. Are you condensing the 95 and 100 pound brackets for 7th and 8th grade? Just curious why there are no 100 pounders listed for 7th and 8th grade.

  7. Do individuals wrestle Sat only? Do they weigh in both Fri 6-7pm and Sat am? If they weigh in Fri night, can they just arrive 10am on Sat?
