Well we are planning for it to be a go. If we are able to pull it off we will likely be one of the first bigger events to take place.   We may stretch the event to two days.

Our plan that we submitted to the board of health is basically this.   Three sessions with approximately 250 athletes in each session. We'll have a Saturday evening session(5-9pm), Sunday mo

I'm the parent of a wrestler than plans to be there.   As much as I LOVE to watch my sons wrestle, I would be more than willing to stay out if that helps the kids wrestle. And that goes f

Where are the best spots to eat or grab a drink going to need something after the Saturday session? Thanks in advance, can't wait to finally be back in a corner, watching some quality wrestling. WRESTLING IS BACK!

Gavin Brown "only" beat Watson by one. If Brown is top five nationally, then kudos to Watson!

 

In other IHPO news...

 

Jesse Mendez seeded second.

Preston Haines finishes 4th at 109. Good run for him.Evan Dickey with a solid tournament as well.

129- Zeke doing what Zeke does.. WIN. I am really surprised that Zeke ONLY beat freshman Brady Ison 7-3. Ison is good but dang, didn't see that match closer than a tech or pin. Zeke with a 9-1 win over Sam Goin, 8-4 over S. Robinson Jr, and a 5-1 win over Illinois state runner up.

174- Bryer Hall finishes 2nd. Sam Morril finishes 3rd.

We don't seed, we separate....difference there. We group like credentials together and the program then bases seeds off of that. 

 

1. State Champ/IHPO Champ
2. State 2-3/IHPO2-4
3. State 4-5
4. State 6-8
5. State qualifier
6. Other

 

If four state champs are in a bracket they will be randomly 1-4 seeds, if the next 3 are #2 criteria they will be 5-7 seeds.

Is KT Nelson going to be on a team this year?

I hope so. Kid looked great today. He got caught up in a cradle against #3 ranked Spencer Moore in the finals but overall is a top 4 kid.

I loved how IHPO wrestled in sessions and got them done in 4 hours.  Sure beats waiting around all day.

 

That seems to be the overall consensus. I was hoping my estimates on match time were going to be correct and it seemed like they were.

 

It is a high probability that we continue to run in this fashion.

The ones that suffer are the good kids that drop an early match. Those kids have to wrestle about every 15 or 20 mins to hit the podium. That’s tough!!!
 

With that said... it kinda works like that at the ISWA states now too. Gotta get it done early!

Don't forget the built in sauna. Gotta bring a fan next year. But it was an awesome layout

I agree 💯 with breaking the event up into sections. It was awesome and kept it moving along. Thanks for all the hard work put in to pull this off. We know it was a challenge and it was great to see the kids back out on the mat finally. 

 

The only gripe I heard about the venue, and I have to agree, was the humidity which made the mats slick. I saw several struggle with their footing and slipping all over the place in neutral and trying to work up from bottom. 

 

Other than that, it was a great layout with plenty of room.
