  1. Weight Lifting on Game Day

    Our APC teacher is the head football coach and he makes my guys do a full workout on meet days. When I spoke to him about altering their plan he said if he does for the wrestlers he will have to do it for all sports which leads to logistical chaos.

    Set to the Rocky soundtrack...Classic!
  3. New IHSAA State Series Alignments

    As a representative, I would ask Mr. Faulkens why there is such a need for secrecy. I would highlight the fact that holding a secret meeting with secret representatives who were secretly chosen by the IHSAA sends the wrong message to the wrestling community. Do the other commissioners operate in the same fashion for football or basketball (Faulkens may oversee one of those, I don't know)? I would be shocked if they realign those sports based off the input of 16 coaches randomly chosen throughout the state. I could be wrong though... The silver lining in all of this is that I now I have a modern day example of a dictatorship and oligarchy to use in my social studies curriculum.
  4. New IHSAA State Series Alignments

    I guess it's too much to ask for the representatives at this clandestine meeting to email the coaches in their regional and explain to them the suggestions, and rationale, they presented to the IHSAA. Some of the changes sound like they are well thought out and necessary while others need some explaining. Then again, maybe there wasn't a representative from every regional in attendance. We don't know anything for sure since it's all top secret.
  5. New IHSAA State Series Alignments

    I appreciate your transparency. The fact that nobody knows the full roster of participants is troubling, to say the least. What is more troubling is that the IHSAA does not want to disclose who was there or what took place. I'm not accusing anyone of anything, just looking for some rationale on why certain changes were made. The fact that you were instructed not to discuss the meeting creates suspicion, in my opinion.
  6. New IHSAA State Series Alignments

    Then why is it so hard to post which coaches were part of the committee as well as the rationale behind their suggestions?
  7. New IHSAA State Series Alignments

    Does anyone have a list of committee members (coaches) that were part of this realignment with the IHSAA?
  8. New IHSAA State Series Alignments

    I apologize for the error. I found the IHSAA enrollment form and my numbers were indeed off. Regardless, you move the 36th biggest HS in the state over to a Sectional where the next biggest HS ranks 153rd. I just don't see the logic in doing that. It makes more sense to send HSE and Fishers over to the Elwood Sectional and leave ZV and WB in S18. That would at least strengthen the PH Regional, IMO. At the end of the day, it is what it is...I would just like to hear the rationale of why they chose to move the teams that they did.
  9. New IHSAA State Series Alignments

    Can you please post each committee member from each regional?
  10. New IHSAA State Series Alignments

    Just goes to show how clueless the IHSAA is in regards to our sport. In our Sectional (17), they added Zionsville (2500 enrollment) to a Sectional where the next largest school has an enrollment of 650. I doubt any other Sectional has that big of a discrepancy.
  11. 145 2nd team should be Boone Welliever, not Kain Rust.
  12. Small School Representation

    I was eluding more to total state qualifiers from 2A. Someone else posted 11% of state qualifiers are from 1A schools (25/224). I would like to know the percentages from 2A and 3A.
  13. Small School Representation

    How many state qualifiers are coming out of 2A schools? I didn't see that stat listed in the info center, "by the numbers."
  14. State Records

    Boone Welliever has 127 pins to date...
