    2013-14there were 22 kids on the Garrett squad 2019-20 we started with 51 and are 49 or 50 now 16-17,17-18,19-20 we made it. Felt we were snubbed one...maybe two years. We knew we were close though. Funny thing is that we were a “bubble” vote in team this year yet we got 2nd. We’ve been seeded 5th twice and placed 2nd both of those years. Unseeded to 7th another year. We knew we could win it this year or compete before we were voted in. In 18 we knew we had a shot as well and came close in a runner up finish. This has definitely attracted kids! Believe it or not...our success has improved our feeder system and we have good wrestlers coming up. ......I’d bet that the same exists for other programs who are excited for the opportunity to win team state.

    I am pretty sure if you have more than one state champion, by the laws of mathematics it makes you less of a state champion.

    Hall of fame coach Bob Read was honored as he coached his final home dual after 40 plus years at Plymouth high school. It was a special night watching past wrestlers come from literally all over the country to honor him. Coach hates any attention on himself but this was well deserving. I’ve known this man over 40 years and I can honestly say I’ve never met a man with more class, ethics and integrity in my life. The video tribute showed countless former wrestlers share how they have become the husbands, fathers and men they are because of the time and care coach poured into their lives. He’s had numerous state qualifiers, placers and champions but the mentoring he has poured into people is what last. I’ve never met a man who hates to lose and loves to win more but it’s the lessons in life that leaves the greatest marks on his wrestlers. He is a man that is driven by his faith, his family and simply pouring into young men’s lives. I felt like I was peeling an onion all night! Thank you coach Read for all you’ve done in this great sport in Plymouth and in Indiana. Well deserved.

    Crown Point over Brownsburg

    Agree, Crown Point looks good and they certainly out wrestled Brownsburg at 126 and 160. Junior looked great and totally controlled Montgomery. Would like to have seen how things would've turned out with both teams being complete, Crown Point at 138 and Brownsburg's absence at 170. Was really looking forward to that potential 138 finals match, but disappointed when brackets came out yesterday. That 106 match was awesome, and that 120 match was pretty good too with Diaz. Was surprised to see how competitive 145 finals was and that 8th seed 182 champ coming through and winning was rewarding, as was that 220 lb freshman champ that I thought I read where his defeat was being anticipated by CP fans during the week. Overall, congrats to a hard fought win on CPs team tonight, was a back and forth battle that definitely played out differently than both sides expected at many of the wt classes; it kept the fans energized, and the format of the finals under the spotlight in this energized environment made for a great experience for all.

    Mat side weigh ins

    That could be very cool. Have Scale built into floor like they have at amusement parks. Wrestlers walk in stand on scale the weight pops up on a big jumbo tron then they run to mat.

    Shawn streck is the no brainer at heavyweight. Only 2x champ was a 4x placer at heavyweight which is un heard of. Lost 1-0 to Winfield his freshman year. He also didn’t give up an offensive point his last 2 years.

    4 Time Spartan Classic Champions

    Wouldn’t be Adam Doherty of Jeffersonville. I beat him there in a placement match at 103 his freshman - my sophomore year in probably the highest scoring match I ever had. Something around 24-19. Cathedral’s Scott Weaver won the weight class that year over J. Collis. Collis had beat Doherty earlier to put him in the consols.

    The rule is you gain 15 pounds once you get married and an extra 10 for every kid. Its like the game of life, but instead of getting little yellow pink and blue pegs to put in your car, you get fat and larger clothes.

    DAC talk / predictions

    The tournament is seeded after weigh-ins. Given the travel distance for some teams, this was more ideal given that it is an eight team tournament with most kids having head to head already and avoids a seeding meeting on an alternate day. I am personally selfish and miss the free meal I get attending the seeding meeting however!

    Team State Qualifying

    Most schools have to set a schedule and how they will use their current year competition points more than a month or so in advance. It’s just not feasible for the current year teams when the event is held in the middle of the season. We would all love to see it be based on the current years success and likely near the end of the season, but the IHSAA isn’t on board with that yet.

    Sorry. Don’t want you to get what I’m saying twisted, I think Alexandria is doing an OUTSTANDING job of doing things the right way! Every time I go to a youth event and see 30-45 little Tigers out there and all the parents getting into it, I get excited for what that town has coming up! My entire family minus myself are Tigers, and you are absolutely doing fantastic things! just pointing out how you (and others in your boat) could have more immediate success at the HS level of it were classed and the work would be lessened. Burn out in our profession is very real. And many small towns don’t have another guy to take up the torch when one leaves due to it. Keep up the great work! No doubt we’ll start seeing maroon and gold Tigers at Bankers life soon!

    I understand the whole concept of ONE state champion, but in the best states (IA, IL, MN, OH, PA) you see three in all of these minus PA. Having more than one state champion doesn’t make you any less of a state champion. If that’s the case, put every college in one division and see how they fare.

    Mat side weigh ins

    This is a problem coaches, parents and athletes need to deal with internally and responsibly..I don't think there's any certain way to nullify cutting across the board..it starts with the proper way of managing your weight and a system with your ppl.. if everybody did their part and looked out for their wrestler it wouldn't be near as bad..we have to get out out the mentality of depriving ourselves in order to have a ill advised never guaranteed advantage.. In MMA fighters are starting to realize that their natural weight and proper strength training will suit them better than cutting to the lower weight.. especially with Welterweights 170 that were cutting to 155.. they started started fighting at 170 and their careers began to skyrocket at the once thought 2aw too big they was running from...It doesn't make sense to stunt a kids growth while their naturally growing.. Proper dieting, training and clean living will go a long way especially compared to long nights doing damage to their bodies and organs.. I've cut 30 pounds in 6 days in 2007 for a fight and a few other bad cuts led me to realize I was so wrong and being detrimental to my growth and self.. I've never encouraged my guys to be "cutters" and never will.

    Crown Point wins the Carnahan Tourney Beating Brownsburg 316-312. CP had a lot of upsets proving how good they are or should be #1. Roberson over Montgomery 5-1, and Hollendonner over Asbury 5-3 were the biggest upsets. Great day to be a dog.. from the region🤣😘. CP all looked very well conditioned

    Mat side weigh ins

    The state talks about safety , even if a kid isn’t cutting weight and weighs in 5 times on a Saturday and has to maintain that weight all day that means he can barely eat or drink all day ! And safe is that for a child ? People who make these rules or even think about it apparently didn’t wrestle at any level . They don’t realize u drink a normal bottle of water and u just gained 1.1 pounds . So in between matches if u decide to eat a sandwhich and drink a bottle of water that before u wrestle again u have to go run the hallways and cut 1.5 pounds .. makes no sense at all to weight in multiple times.

    You don’t really “lose” points. You just voluntarily give them up. Basically, you can have up to a MAXIMUM of 18 points but can’t use more than 12 of them in “tournaments” (including multi-duals). But you don’t have to use all 18. (Some teams don’t in fact.)

    Not that I care, but If you challenge the rankings then give us a detailed "tale of the tape" between Fishers and Southport. Somebody needs to sell it. Not just a little snip-it. Give "Decbell" some real info for the next ranking.

    Southport vs Fishers in the Rankings

    H!. I wish we could, but we have county, and the coach isn't particular inclined to my suggestions I know a number of the wrestlers on Fisher, they're good kids. I didn't and don't want my post to be misconstrued as maligning their accomplishments. I definitely root for your 106 through 126 whenever I can (except, of course, against our kids). Hey, they're all CIA alums.
