Listing Wrestlers on Weigh-in Sheet

Q: Is there a recommendation that you can make on where a contestant should be listed / recorded on the official WI sheet?

A: At dual matches, I highly recommend that you encourage coaches to list wrestlers on the weigh in sheet with the weight class that corresponds to their EWC (eligible weight class). Remember that we have always encouraged wrestlers to WI at the lowest weight class they may be weight eligible to compete. That weight class would be the EWC. Regardless of your actual weight, you are never benefitted by weighing in at a class lower than your EWC, because you may not wrestle there anyway. This might prevent the issues that were addressed in the first two questions.
