    Blaze Lowery

    Just want to give some big props to this guy. He wrestled his heart out the other night against Zach Melloh on his senior night. Many believed he would give up bonus points to a very-polished Melloh, but Blaze stayed in the match the whole time, and after several crazy takedown defenses, even scored a takedown on Melloh and held him to an 11-8 decision. That is heart and what every coach looks for in a wrestler and what every young teammate looks for in a senior. Wishing you the best of luck on the rest of your senior year, bro! Blessed to call you a friend and awesome to see the growth you’ve shown!

    Seeding Meeting Change???

    Busco has always produced good quality wrestlers and kids for their size. Just because your mud hole isn’t near ours it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist or have a history. Also Sam is one member of a group that made this decision. Maybe the decision wasn’t vetted well enough but that group does have good intentions and at least they are putting effort forth.

    David Palmer Legendary Delta/ Muncie Southside wrestler, David Palmer, lost his battle to cancer in late December. He was 54 years old. In the early 1980's David was a one-time state runner up and a state champion for Muncie Southside as well as a 2x state champion for Delta HS. David led Delta to their first team state championship title in 1981 that eventually turned into 5 consecutive titles. In 1979 David became the first Indiana wrestler to make the world team and the first to win a gold medal. David wrestled for Oklahoma Univ. on a full ride scholarship and graduated with a bachelors degree in accounting. David was an inspiration to all those that knew him and was always helping others. He will be greatly missed! Please join friends and family for a Life Celebration of David Palmer this Sunday January 14th at Mansfield Park in Muncie. Celebration begins at 4:00pm. For more info please contact : Delta coach Gary Schliessman at cabincreations@comcast.net

    2 Good ones from my wrestling days. 1. A kid drank 10 20oz Surges at lunch. (It was the launch of Surge and they gave them out for free). He passes out and feel down some stairs. (He was alright) 2. A kid didn't make the tournament because we actually left the school without him. He was upstairs running and nobody got him. He said he ran for quite a while before coming down and realized we had left.

    Some from coaching and some from when I wrestled. Not making it to an event. Funny at first, but less humorous after. Phone call “Coach I won’t be able to make it out van is on fire.” This was a kid that’s always late and also missed a few meets. We are driving to the meet which goes past his road and sure enough a vans engine was on fire in sub-zero temperatures with emergency out there. We doubled back and picked the kids up on the way to the meet. Thankfully everyone was safe. Missed weight: Kid weighed out about 1.5lb under weight. Came into school the next day 2lb over. Kid: Coach all I had was water last night. Coach: Well how much water did you have. Kid: A few glasses coach. But that can’t be why because it’s clear so doesn’t weigh much. Second best was when our HWT didn’t make weight. Kid: All I had was fruit and vegetables Coach. Coach:No way you gained that much weight just eating some fruit and vegetable. Kids brother: He ate a crap ton of them all night long coaches. I told him to stop but he said it’s fine they are healthy foods so he wont gain weight. Not coming to practice the day before the first meet so couldn’t wrestle at that meet: Kid: Coach you said we had to be clean shaven by that practice or we would be in trouble. Coach: Yes. Kid: Well my mom hadn’t been to Walmart yet, so I went home. Coach: You know we have extra razors and shaving cream in the Med kit right. Kid: Yes coach, but my mom said I have sensitive skin so she only buys me the special kind.

    Undefeated????

    I agree with this but, Correct me if I am wrong in Indiana there's no seeding criteria going into the last tournament to determine who is the best. Therefore wins and loses mean nothing, everything is practice up-to the big dance.

    Nick Lee question

    I was kinda surprised Limmex beat Chad Red the way he did. Chads been scouted for sure and isn’t able to funk out so much when people get in on his legs. Not taking away from Limmex he did a great job but Chad has got to minimize the way his opponents are getting in on him.

    One of my all time favorites has to be when a wrestler told Mitch Robb after he was a pound or 2 overweight(approximately) that he took a shower that morning so he must've accidentally drank some of the water from the shower. ??? This came from a wrestler that was good enough to place in state if obviously his head was in the right spot lol.

    Seeding Meeting Change???

    To answer your questions about any influence that may have in the wrestling community all I can tell you is that I joined the association. I volunteered to help with some committees that they had, volunteered as a regional rep. I ran for the position of secratary twice unopposed. Literally any influence that I have is available to anyone willing to put in some time to help with the IHSWCA. In terms of our wrestling program (which I am not sure has anything at all to do with my ability to volunteer for the coaches association) we are a small community about 10 minutes from Northwest Fort Wayne. We are not Prairie Heights or Adams Central, but I have to admit that I am a little surprised that a small school wrestling aficionado like yourself didn't know we finished 2nd, 1st, and 5th at the first three team states. Thats not to say that we are the greatest team in the state, but we have done some good things for a small team, and are generally fairly competitive for a school our size. Are you advocating that only big schools have a say in the IHSWCA? Is there some sort of success factor you feel should be in place for IHSWCA volunteers?

    Depth of 126

    Semi State wrestle backs will always be a discussion however if you have ever had a kid make it through the ticket round...well there are no words!! Atmosphere is indescribable!!! Wait, wasn't this about the depth at 126?? DEEEEEP!!

    If they have faced top talent there is no doubt it is a great accomplishment; if you haven't faced any wrestler ranked in the State or even the SS it is slightly devalued.
