Wrestling Assessments

The Hughston Foundation continues to partner with the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) in serving as the regional site for mandated assessments for local wrestling programs. Before student athletes can compete in GHSA-sanctioned events, they must pass an assessment that measures height, weight, hydration status, and overall body fat percentage. These values are then entered into a computer program that calculates the number of pounds an athlete can safely lose during his or her season. During 2018, hundreds of high school student athletes from Harris, Muscogee, and Chattahoochee County schools were assessed at the Foundation. Both the Hughston Foundation and the GHSA are committed to ensuring safe weight loss for all area high school wrestlers.
