Wrestling teams that don't fill all of their weight classes often have it adversely impact their records.
That was the case with Tamaqua last season, when holes in the line-up contributed to its 5-16 mark.
"Last year we had three forfeits, and more at times with injuries," said Tamaqua head coach Jim McCabe, who is entering his 11th season at the helm. "In eight of our losses, we were right in those matches, even with 3-4 forfeits."
This season, the Blue Raiders have 21 wrestlers on their varsity roster and should be able to field a full line-up.
