In some cases, unless specific information to the contrary was received, wrestlers were placed at the weight class they competed at last season or their most frequent off-season weight class, whichever was higher. Wrestlers listed at 106 pounds competed in the off-season at that weight class or below; however, it is expected that a significant number of them will be at 113 pounds or more during the coming season.
