    Assistant Coaches

    I know Yorktown is looking for a head / Asst If your ECI. Small school that has been in the top of the state for many years. I'm guessing would need a highly motivated coach fluent in folk, free greco. willing to do summer trips, camps etc. Currently has a 2 time state champ and multiple State placers qualifier. Oh and a bid for Team state next year.

    Forfeits - MN's proposed solution

    The fix to filling weights is to have a good feeder program in place and hook these kids at a young age also getting the kids you have to get friends to come out.. If you look around the State i'm sure you will see the same thing i see in Delaware county. examples Yorktown not a large school but has been able to fill a team. Daleville i don't think even had a full team till now, but if you look at their elementary, middle school and even their high school now are growing. Cowan has a great feeder in place now and is growing fast. Delta is doing well with numbers. Monroe Central had small high school numbers but have the numbers now. Then look at other school with no feeder programs and they are the ones struggling. Is this a fast solution no but if your hurting in number there is no better way to get them then to start a feeder program. It comes down to coaching staff and parents putting the work in and the kids will come. If you have a program in place but still do not have the numbers do something different. Summer trips are great. Do freestyle and greco for a lot of places i have heard they don't teach it because they are worried about it effecting folkstyle. All my kids have done freestyle and greco and it has helped a ton. Yes there is an adjustment period at the start but kids adjust fast. I see 7 and 8 year olds every year make this adjustment so it is not an excuse not to do it. Dropping to 12 weights will only hurt the sport more because the schools that do have the weights to fill the classes now will only have 12 spots. That's 2 less spots and 2 less kids making varsity. Giving 2 kids a reason to want to quit. I just don't see any positives from this.

    Brownsburg RWO - Thursdays at 6:01PM

    I Think 2x Undefeated State Champ Brayden Curtis will be coming with Hunt. Sounds like it will be a great room top to bottom.

    Blake Boarman

    Just wanted to say Blake is a great kid with a big future ahead of him. My wife and son got a chance to talk to them for the 1st time tonight and they are a class act. Can't wait to see more from this kid and we wish him the best on his surgery. Grats on pushing though the knee injury and placing 3rd. Shows lots of heart. Curtis Family

    1 pound allowance @ state **Confirmed**

    Should be 3 total on Friday and 4 total on Sat. Per rules. To make it 3 and 3 is crap.

    Sprinting to get seats

    I see both sides but at the same time teams should set together. Kinda odd 3 people setting in a sea of Portage if your kid is wrestling a portage kid. (nothing against Portage just the 1st name that came to mind and i have never had any issue with them. good people) Would be nice to have teams sectioned off and a lottery for the seats but doubt any schools knows how many people will come from that school and how many would be saved for them leaving a lot of blank seats and putting good seats to waste. With that said If you do try to save seats try to use reason. Get an idea before heading how many are coming and only save those as needed or maybe just your family in the same area don't do 10 rows or something dumb. Also if you do see people saving a seat just talk to them most people are willing to work with you. There could be a good reason as to why they might be saving a seat. I for one saved one last year for my Father he had back issue and i did not want him getting hurt in the crowed getting in, so he hung back. I got the seat and he came once it settled down.

    State predictions?

    Worst draw

    Just wondering how do they do it now. i mean we all know 1-4 and 2-3 but how do they pick what semi-state you draw into your 1-4 2-3. Hat for each weight or is it a rotation?

    Does SS run two sessions?

    10 for the whole day or 8 if you just go to watch the finals. At FT Wayne and i'm guessing the others.. There is a short break before finals, but they do not make you leave like State.

    Class Champs picks

    All this talk of class wrestling is making me think. Who would be 1a 2a and 3a state champ picks based on the class system we have set for team state.. Will be interesting to see who would have a chance of getting gold that normally would not be thought of being able to in non class.

    Define OW

    Brayden won OW at Moorseville this year. I don't think he was in the most stacked weight, but did bump up to 120 and was dominate up to the finals. Then had a good match with Cash. I know he has been very humble and respectful of his follow competitor. I would hope that had more to do with it then just his performance as an athlete. To me OW should be a balance of Ability / Sportsmanship and not just based on name and the ability to pin / TF every kid as fast as they can. Just my opinion. Very interesting topic and to be honest until now i had not given it much thought.
