Desert Vista had four wrestlers in Akron, Ohio, last week in the ASICS/FILA Cadet & University National Championships.

Only Alex Bambic came back with hardware as the sophomore 215-pound state champion finished fifth in the Greco Roman portion of the event and just missed placing in freestyle.

Two-time state champion Robbie Mathers went 2-2 in freestyle but didn't place, while sophomore Cooper Gardner 1-2 in Greco and 0-2 in freestyle. Freshman Tristan Ezell went 0-2 in both disciplines.

In other wrestling news, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Wrestling Rules Committee approved an upward shift of the weight classes, beginning with the 103-pound class moving to 106 pounds, which resulted in new weights for 10 of the 14 classes. The changes in weight classes, along with 17 other rules revisions, were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

The 14 weight classes approved by the committee for 2011-12 are as follows: 106 (pounds), 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220 and 285.
