Friday AM: Weigh-in may be at home or at Newton High School beginning at 7 a.m.  If weighing in at home, present the signed weigh-in sheet to Brian Becker NHS Athletic Director.

Friday PM: Weigh-in will be for one hour following the end of each respective weight class on Friday night OR for one hour following the last match on Friday night (the 285# weight class). A wrestler may NOT participate in both weigh-in periods.

Saturday AM: There will be a one hour weigh-in option on Saturday morning from 7:00-8:00 a.m. This is only for wrestlers who were unable to participate in the Friday evening weigh-in as a result of an injury sustained during Friday’s competition that required that the wrestler be off the competition site during the Friday evening weigh-in.

** Since at least one team wrestles on Thursday (Jan. 10th), there will be a three-pound allowance Friday and a four-pound allowance Saturday.  Any changes in Federation/KSHSAA regulations regarding weighing in will supercede this information.
