  1. FW Semi-State Rankings Pt. 1 (106-145)

    The results on Track from the 2017 Middle School State meet is a good place to look but it is not perfect. The 'hometown' of the kids is usually listed as the local club not the middle school, so it becomes challenging to figure out which club will likely feed into a particular high school for those top finishers. Also, although I presume the most are 8th graders, some will be 6th or 7th and I don't see a way to differentiate from Track's results page.
  2. What a talented group of guys. Too bad Mendez is the only name on that list currently signed up for the Preseason Opener! Signup ends after 650 wrestlers sign up and all weight classes are filling up fast! Come on gentlemen -- lets do this!
  3. Jesse Mendez

    Mendez sure seems like the real deal . I saw his name on the pre-season opener in September which got me thinking... The Preseason Opener seems to always have a talented group of wrestlers in general. Do we know if a 7th or 8th grader has won the whole thing in the past? If Mendez is a true #109 he has to be a frontrunner.
  4. Wrestling and Math

    Perhaps not; however, don't you want to have 16-guys at Semi-State (and State for that matter) to make the bracket work out? Are you proposing you take only the top three from each regional? Seems like that would be problematic when drawing brackets at semi-state where there are an odd number of feeder sectionals. Assuming your math is correct...of the folks you are proposing to exclude, 44% were competitive (they did not get pinned), and 5.4% (3 out of 56) beat the number one guy!
  5. ISWA State

    Ben Dalton dominated the Cadet #94 group, just like he did the Middle School State in its comparable weight class. I'm calling it now, if he can put on a few more pounds to get closer to 106, he will be wrestling in the High School State Finals next year, and is my early pick for the 106 champion. Congratulations Ben.
  6. Who is on fire?

    I have seen Boe pin several kids using his legs as some sort of python grip to hold them on their back; it's pretty impressive. Anyone know the name of the move?

  8. Some interesting stats going into state

    Well, both of those figures are sort of misleading. If you take the guy down 13 times and cut him loose 13 times you are padding your takedown numbers while appearing to give away the farm on escapes. In reality, it is just a technical superiority that, quite frankly, is pretty amazing to watch.
