One contributing factor has been the reduction in age over the years for the Sr. classes and the constant push for kids to move up in class after a year.
Senior used to be Senior. Most Sr. competitors were over 18 “back in the day”.
Sr. nowadays means 14 1/2, with an average age of 16-17.
Most boys gain 30+ pounds between 14 and 18. If Sr. classes were 18+, I bet the weights would be right on.
