It's really hard to win a state title in New Jersey.
And some weight classes and years are harder than others.
We have broken down the toughest weight classes at the New Jersey state tournament from the 2010s.
Each year is scored by adding up the career scores of all the NJ state medalists.
Four-time NJ state champions and future NCAA champions Nick Suriano and Anthony Ashnault won two of the best weight classes of this decade.
Check out the toughest weight classes from 2010 to 2019 ranked by NJ state medals!
