can y’all explain why a team would forfeit a certain weight class all year long???

Not sure about this specific situation and maybe one of the guys closer to the program could shed light on it but the only two times I've ever seen this done was back in late 90's when two wrestlers were killed in a car accident and the school went through the rest of the season forfieting those two weight classes.  I think the school was St Croix.

Also Southern Columbia football did it when two of their starting defensive players were killed, they played every game's first series on defense two players short.  Not for the entire game though.

could be for several reasons especially this year with Covid. Weird though that that team can't field someone at those weights.. Injuries are probably the culprit but there is also the chance that some wrestlers that were expected to be there might have grey shirted and repeated 8th grade. I know BC had 2 highly touted frosh, one who was ranked nationally, decide not to enroll because of the shortened season.

I will be asking to find out....seems weird not even putting out a body on the off chance of a win......but upper weights are legit....not sure how we beat BC starting in a 0-3 hole.....basically cannot lose a match after that etc......

it could be a Covid thing meaning SJR lost a few lower weight wrestlers and once the season starts you cannot add wrestlers throughout the season.  Could just be that they are low on numbers for this season and aren't asking other wrestlers to drop that much weight.  only a guess though.

Do you know exactly what that is?

yeah they have it every year..it goes by age that is y they are cadets. it goes cadet,junior and then the regular or senior squad I guess what you would call it. With covid pushing the wrestling season into spring I guess they had to choose between the 2. They have to wrestle and make the National team and the they go overseas. But this is Freestyle wrestling not Folkstyle like they wrestle at the high school level. Good move by these 2 since the high school wrestling schedule is pretty much a joke this year. Good experience

I believe every year..this is one off on scheduling. You have to remember wrestling is done by the 1st week of March usually. This scheduling problem won't happen again.
