From 22-16 to 31-1

Recommended Posts

Tristan Ruhlman from Bloomington South went 22-16 last year and lost first round of regionals. This year, he is 31-1 at 160 and has wins over #7 @ 152 Conley 3-1, previously ranked Sollars 6-2, an #7 Singleton 8-3, fall over # 20 Doane, and #16 Schank 9-3.  Tristan's only loss is to #4 Pruett 3-4. Now, Tristan will have to beat a game Sollars again in the ticket round so I am not saying he is a lock but very impressed with his improvement. 

What gives? Seems like he got serious about wrestling and turned it up a notch..or several notches. 

Who else has improved drastically like this?

Babcock is a diamond in the rough.  I tried to get him to travel to Virginia Beach a few years ago with Contenders WA MS team and they felt like they were not ready for that type of a trip just yet, but I knew after looking at him in person and seeing him wrestle some matches at Winter Nationals he was more than ready and would make for a great wrestler.  Good Job kid and good luck going forward.

Which of these guys are non-big boys? You expect a few of the big-boy improvement stories because mastery of a couple positions or finishes can translate into drastically different results--but smaller guys making a big jump is less common for sure.

Definitely a great kid that has bought in 100% this year. I am just glad we got him for 2 more years and he looks like a senior lol

Jordan Fish from Madison is similar. Mid 2000's. I don't recall his record his Junior year but placed 4th at sectionals and put out 1st rd. at regionals. Went into SS his Senior year 39-2 I believe. Placed 3rd at SS and 8th at State.

If we're going old-school Jeremiah Harvey 2010 - 6 losses, one and done at regional; 2011 - state champ

Please don’t call 2010 old school.  Way to early for that one.

This one is cheating to an extent, because I assume he was very undersized last year and had to bump due to talented teammates... But Brady Lewis of Huntington North was 16-18 and didn’t win a match at sectionals at 120. Now he’s down at 106 and comes into semi-state a regional champion with a 35-4 record.

Another out of Ft. Wayne is Kamden Goering. Went two-and-out at sectionals last year with an 18-15 record and is 30-4 this year with losses only at the Al Smith and the regional championship.

Geoffrey Davis from Fort Wayne Wayne is a great one.

9th grade was like 7-25 with all FF wins

10th grade was JV

11th grade & 12th grade was 4th in the State back to back years.
