CAMERON WEPRIN Tribune sportswriter In high school sports such as swimming and a few great athletes can carry a team to a state Starting in the 199596 school year that wont be the case in That will be the first season a team state champion based on a dual meet format will be It is one of a few rules changes the Indiana High School Athletic Associa tion will be it will increase interest in the sport of said Bob assistantcommissioner of the We want to bring back the interest in the dual meets and shift the emphasis away from just the great athlete and onto the entire This will make filling out the entire roster more Most of the states top teams schedule few dual meets but rather travel to large tournaments on the That may change because both the athletes and the coaches will need to adjust to the dual meet Coaching for a dual meet is different than coaching for a said Mike who will begin his 25th season as coach of Taylor High Schools team this If you can win seven weight class you can win a dual So coaches will have tp find seven people who can win and put them in the right weight The individual state tournament will not But under the proposed guidelines for one complete team from each

team to A major change for 199495 weight classes which will be spread out more evenly than is the case The number of weight classes will remain at Instead of having five weight classes between 120 and 150 there will only be three and 142 It might make it harder for some coaches to field a complete and competitive Six years ago they the con ducted a survey and round that most high school kids weigh
