  1. I would like to invite all wrestling clubs to the Diesel City Folkstyle Championships on February 11th, 2018! Columbus, Indiana is home to the world famous Cummins diesel engine. Come see if your wrestlers have their motor ready to win this tournament. This is an individual Folkstyle tournament sanctioned by USA Wrestling and open to Peewee-Junior ages. There will be wrestlers from all over Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Tennessee, and hopefully Kentucky. The champion of each weight class will earn the Diesel City Folkstyle Champion fight shorts pictured below! We will also have medals for 2nd-6th place. Along with the individual tournament we will be keeping track of team points accumulated throughout the tournament. There will be four team divisions: Large 15+, Medium 8-14, Small 1-7, and All-Star/Academy division (wrestlers from different clubs and/or states wrestling under the same team name). There will be Team Champion and Team Runner-up plaques for each division. 8 teams will walk away with some hardware to hang in the wrestling room! Tournament Director: Justin Ratliff 812-525-7304 cndogswrestling@gmail.com Registration Link: http://www.trackwrestling.com/tw/opentournaments/VerifyPassword.jsp?tournamentId=45877132 There will be select satellite weigh in sites announced soon!

  3. Wrestling Academies

    If you are in an area that is not in very close proximity to a solid academy, there are a few things that you can do to amplify your club kids wrestling. 1. Have some of the top academy coaches do some clinics instead of your regular club practice. This will be a learning experience for both kids and coaches. See if they will bring a few of their studs to wrestle with your kids too. Your kids will love experiencing someone different and it is always eyeopening for your wrestlers when they say, "That is what you tell us all of the time, coach." 2. Take some field trips to some of the academies and drop in to wrestle with the big boys. Again, a learning experience and who does not like a field trip that involves wrestling. 3. Think out of the box. Or smash your box and build a new one. Take some of the things that you learn from those experiences and apply those to your club. One of the hardest things to replicate is the level of practice partners skill and intensity. If a family is able to, don't discourage them from attending an academy.

  9. Trophy Chasing

    Dang! I helped a few kids get on some teams as wildcards and didn't get anything for it. I'm going to have to hold out for some sliders next time or something. At least some gas station sushi.
  10. 16 Teams at Beech Grove HS this weekend. Great awards, team parade, announcer, finals face off and spotlight for the finals matches! There are going to be some battles for the top 4 spots in some of the weight classes. It sounds like there are some potential bracket busters too. Should be an exciting weekend of youth wrestling. There are also 4 top 8 team from ISWA Team State: Center Grove 1, Southside Wolverines 3, New Palestine 4, and Franklin Central 6 (Perry came in at #10 as well) Anyone care to make any predictions for the team race top 5 and finals match ups?
  11. Nick Lee question

    I think they may be considering the outcome of the team race by pulling his red shirt; especially with Cortez's recent injury.
  12. Favorite Excuses

    Me: Why did you miss the dual (in Columbus) Saturday? Wrestler: We had to go to Indianapolis to get my little brothers toy fixed.
  13. Nick Lee question

    It will be great to see Indiana wrestling showcased on a more national level like the Big Ten championships if Lee and Red wrestle one another again!

  19. Favorite Coach's Quote/Saying

    What about, "If you aren't cheating, you're not trying hard enough."?
  20. Football vs Wrestling....risk/reward

    If the concern of this post is simply scholarships, then how about having your son/daughter focus on studies? No injury there. If they are successful enough in a sport to warrant a scholarship; great! If not, no sweat. They will have already been building towards a more sustainable endeavor. As much as we love watching our children play sports, most of them will not be doing it later in life. If your child has already passed the threshold for an academic opportunity then adjust for your younger children to focus on academics.
  21. Wrestlers on the field

    Brigham Kleinhenz had an article called Tackling Machine in the Columbus Republic. Great kid and a 2X semi-state qualifier for North. http://www.therepublic.com/2017/10/12/tackling_machine/
  22. Who's #1 (B.Lee & J. Lee)

    220 and Hwt is probably hard to do right now because of football.
