  7. NFHS Rule Changes

    No, not college out of bounds. At least not yet. I do think that they are moving that direction, though. Also, keep in mind that the rule changes that the NFHS passed are still subject to IHSAA adoption. They more than likely will be adopted as written, but they dont necessarily have to be. Case in point the gray shirts for refs... they were allowed by the NFHS 3-4 years before the ISHSAA approved them.
  8. NFHS Rule Changes

    According to Asst. Commissioner Faulkens, they are working on a case book explanation now. The new rule allows for an offensive and defensive fall.
  9. NFHS Rule Changes

    Shoulders or scapula of the offensive wrestler? The committee approved two changes in Rule 5-11 related to falls and near falls. In 5-11-1, the shoulders or scapula of the offensive wrestler no longer must be inbounds to earn a fall. The committee agreed that wrestling should continue if the offensive wrestler’s supporting parts remain inbounds and no body part of the defensive wrestler goes off the mat. In 5-11-5, “unless any part of the shoulders or both scapulae of the defensive wrestler is inbounds” was eliminated. If wrestling is continuing during a match, near falls and falls will be awarded/earned regardless of the out-of-bounds line.
  10. Attempting to return to the mat?

    Casebook: Page 87 Section 6 Stalling 5-H In the advantage position, it is stalling when staying behind your opponent while on your feet, making no attempt to bring the opponent to the mat
  11. Becoming a licensed IHSAA Referee

    Per my conversation with Assistant Commissioner Sandra Walter, they no longer offer probationary licenses, so you must be at least 18 years old AND out of high school.

  14. Becoming a licensed IHSAA Referee

    Keep in mind that the IHSAA offers 240 scholarships per year for first year officials, so the $50 licensing fee can be waived. Each association (24 in all) get 10 scholarships each, and for each of the past 3 seasons only about 1/2 are getting used. Once mid August comes around the unused scholarships come back in to the pool and can be used by any of the associations. You can contact your local association to get on their list, and if they dont have any left you can contact me after mid August and I will hook you up. I used 27 total last year... 21 for wrestling officials. Chuck Barnett, IHSAA 009350 Secretary, Calumet Association mr_charlie_man@yahoo.com
  15. Most influential people in the sport today

    JD Minch on a LOT of levels
  16. Lake County Championships

    Lowell is back in, and I believe that Merrillville is sending their B Varsity. The only two Lake County teams not in are Crown Point and Hammond Morton. Wheeler is in Porter County, but has been in the past few years.
  17. Best of luck to Mr. Stewart and the Cathedral wrestling community. The injury was devastating and certainly took the steam out of the dual meet. The decision to forfeit the remainder of the match and attend to the needs of the injured wrestler, as well as the rest of the team was the right one and was agreed upon by all parties, including the officials, Coach Vega and Portage wrestling, and the meet management. The reaction by the Cathedral Team was a testimony to their true family spirit!
  18. Fort Wayne Semi-State greatest wrestler ever

    Curt Crouch, Delta... toughest wrestler on the Ft Wayne PD
  19. Middle School Competition Wear

    Almost none of the Indiana middle schools are sanctioned by the IHSAA, and therefore the uniform requirements in the NFHS rule book due not have to be adhered to in the same manner as they do at the high school level. Several Middle Schools that I have officiated for have used them, and I have had no issue with them as long as they do not present a hazard to either wrestler. It's something that the officials should, and will, discuss at their association meetings this sumemer/fall.
