    An Idea to Think About.

    Matt's hits some very key points, those schools that can keep coaches around are going to lead the pack in keeping and drawing in quality kids. The amount a school invests in their program is a huge factor, look at Brownsburg 10 years ago vs now and you can see what a difference making wrestling a priority makes. Wrestling is still a non revenue sport to most ADs and it's clear in the decisions they make about wrestling. Until a school decides to make an investment in the sport, they are going to lose quality kids. A lot also falls on the coaches, building off the above point, kids dont leave coaches when they know they are getting their best day in and day out. Ask kids at the programs getting kids, they will all say that Coach X truely cares about them and their success. In all of this wrestling is cannibalizing itself, the gymnastic example is a great one, but in many cases we only have ADs and coaches to blame in the process.

    Would be a solid pick up, a couple of Region big guys taking the reigns for the Boilers.
  12. You mean that returning Cadet World Champion 220?

    Big wins/upsets 1/20

    Pollitt CE over Foster FC 9-0
  14. The Lafayette Sectional looks poised to be a real factor this year at semi-state. By some predictions you could see 2 qualifiers from Benton Central, Delphi, Jeff, and Harrison. West Lafayette is on the outside looking in at 195 but I wouldn't be surprised if Kidwell punches a ticket as well. Several of these kids will be back next year giving the Lafayette Sectional an array of potential medalists in the future. Logansport has a few contenders, South Newton looks poised to punch a ticket at 195, and Twin Lakes has a shot at getting one through. This could be a year the Logansport Regional can use to show kids they do belong in the conversation at Semi-state.

    Team Rankings: IndianaMat Dual Ranking

    The number of athletes isn't the only problem. Most of the time small schools don't have the resources to stay competitive with large schools. Coaches pay is low, they don't have as many available coaches in the buildings, lower quality weight rooms, no/little access to cardio equipment, no wrestling room, along with a variety of other factors all play in to the struggle to field 14 quality kids at 14 weights. When you are fighting for practice time with freshman basketball, cheerleading,and drama club your program isn't going to thrive. Not to mention only having one coaching stipend which is often lower than big schools assistant coaches stipends.
