At today's PIAA board meeting, the proposal to go to 13 weight classes was approved on the third and final reading.  The vote was unanimous.  Dr. Bob Lombardi apparently mentioned that this is just of this season to start.

The weights for the upcoming season (if there is one...) will be:
106, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 172, 189, 215, 285

Also of note, the Giant Center was chosen as the site for both the team and individual state championships through the 2023-24 season.

If anything else related to wrestling is announced during the meeting, I'll post more.

A few reporters who were posting online during the meeting seemed to suggest the PIAA is fairly confident that the NFHS will be changing weight classes after the season, and most likely will be going to 13 weights.  So we'll see how it works out this season in PA.  Again, hopefully there is a season.  That's still TBD.

On the subject of the pandemic, the PIAA didn't change any dates yet for fall sports but it's all subject to change of course as conditions change as things get closer to starting up.

189 AAA next year:
 
Lenny Pinto State 1st
Mac Stout State 2nd
Trey Kibe State 4th
Donovan McMillan State 2nd
Drew Clearie State 3rd
Joey Milano State 4th
Ryan Catka State 3rd
Jacob Lucas State 4th
Jason Henderson State 5th
Braydon Roskosky State 6th
 
Some may go 172, some may move up to 215 but 189 has potential to be an amazing weight class.
