  1. I’ve heard all the slights. I saw the stats. If you were to believe most of the rhetoric about our area you’d think the coaches don’t care or are just not knowledgeable. Wrong assumption. I must say today I’m proud of my adopted area. I saw guys that coached when I wrestled. I saw young guys like Monsieur LeCount. Riley Lefever: The Super Charger Legend. Now a coach for my Hoosiers? . Rod Lone. Mr. Cowboy boots himself the magnanimous Barry Humble let me chat him up. No longer a “pack a day” Southside Legend Rodney Bolden. Riley McClurg. Big Coach Hall from Trine. Andy Oberlein. And listen up: Monroe Central: I didn’t catch his name but I have to go fishing with this guy: you have a winner over there. Nick Krause had several interesting takes and points. The Northside Legends Legend: Gralan Early. What I’m saying is I was impressed: I’m hard to impress. I don’t know how many wrestlers were there but at least 70? Angola brought a contingency. Wabash/Northfield brought a bus. I said all that to say this: I like the direction WE are heading. I even saw Ole Y2. We were as cordial as we’ve never been. I respect the guy he does a lot for the wrestling community here and state wide. Props are due give people their flowers whilst they can still smell them. Saw coach Ojeida from Northrop. I give him a hard time but he loves to help the kids. Salute. Coach Tun and Veazy: tireless Warriors. Juwan Bolden and Everett Green deserve props too: they’ve taken what I’ve taught them collectively and paid it forward. I saw some real eaters amongst the young wrestlers. Wade welcome to Da Fort once again. Let’s go Fort Wayne Semi-State!

  2. You did a good job too @leggin89. A tournament like this couldn't be put on without a lot of great people. Indiana Tech wrestlers did a great job setting up on Friday Trine wrestlers and some Indiana Tech girls were great at the tables Mark and Kyle doing an awesome job with Track and even shifting bouts on the fly. The Carroll trainers who came and kept everyone from bleeding too much The referees who made some good calls and kept Barnett from blowing a whistle. My assistants Briggs and Smith who helped coordinate facility stuff. The police officers who helped with a couple small issues Adam Hartsough with amazing photos(check Facebook) The great wrestlers, coaches, fans and parents that came, kinda hard to be a great tournament without those. LT Hawkins for taking two third place medals Lastly, my wife and kids who manned the front and did a great job. Thanks everyone for a great weekend of wrestling. It is nice to have such a big event in this state that is a WRESTLING state!

  4. The Columbus North Wrestling program is excited to welcome Jacob Fleckenstein and Adam Wolka to our staff! Fleckenstein finished High School with a 159-17 career record, was a two-time Indiana state place winner, and went on to wrestle at Purdue. While at Purdue he earned Big10 wrestler of the week honors and finished 19th on the career takedown list. Adam Wolka joins CN with previous experience in both Head and Assistant Coaching roles. Wolka, a multi-sport athlete in High School (FB & WR) and semistate qualifier, brings a wealth of Big-Man wrestling knowledge to the CN program. Welcome to Columbus North!

  5. Here is a unique view, it's not the style it's the fact that we tend to burn kids out at a younger age. They wrestle 100's of matches a year when they are younger and thus leave the sport sooner than they should. On the women's side they tend to start later and there are limited number of women's events to attend so they aren't putting the grueling season on themselves like the younger boys are.

  6. Man Indiana is ontherise pun intended. These guys coming in to high school and the next wave of middle school guys are tough! This group showed they are not afraid of tough competition and showed out. That takes guts, great job! so CP-BBurg-Mater dei battling out for a title.

  7. Middle schoolers LT hawkins had a day finishing 3rd!!!!! Evan Stanley was right there with haines and the best kids in indiana beating state placers etc, jeffrey hueyvart beat state qualifiers, and clinton shepherd who just turned 13 beat a couple Ohio state qualifiers and they all competed with the best high schoolers in the country! Future is bright for indiana wrestling. Middle schoolers have some upcoming hammers. Also, the tourney was ran incredible!

    Can Bishop Sycamore attend Connersville instead. I feel it maybe our best shot at getting any coverage of that one.

  12. Jesse Mendez is making his third straight trip to FloWrestling’s Who’s #1 and Christian Carroll is wrestling in his first event. Both are looking to build upon a strong spring and summer and win their respective matches. Carroll has been nearly unbeatable since last fall when he won the Grappler Fall Classic and followed that up with a Super 32 belt. This spring he was runner-up in freestyle and Greco-roman to eventual world champion Braxton Amos. After that he dominated at Fargo and won a Junior title at 220lbs. Carroll is the first Indiana wrestler to win a Fargo Junior championship and a Super 32 championship. The match for Carroll will be the main event and a big guy super match. He will face off with the top ranked heavyweight in the country, Nick Feldman. Both “heavyweights” weighed in under 230lbs, so this is closer to a light heavyweight match-up. Feldman has won Beast of the East and National Prep titles to go along with winning at Who’s #1 a year ago. He’s an Ohio State commit and will be a great match-up for Carroll. This will NOT be a boring big guy battle. Jesse Mendez is making his third trip to Who’s #1 and looking to be the first competitor to four wins in the event. The past two years Mendez has had to wrestle multiple matches, but this year he only has one in Michigan’s Casey Swiderski. Mendez has had quite a busy off-season that has included a trip to Russia for Junior Worlds, recruiting visits, and even being the grand marshal of the Crown Point July 4th parade! His opponent, Casey Swiderski will look to pull off a big time upset and is likely the only one crazy enough to voluntarily take a match with Mendez. Swiderski is an Iowa State commit and according to everyone in the know has a similar style to Mendez with great technique, high pace, and tenacious attitude. Like Mendez, Swiderski has won three state titles in Michigan for Dundee High School. He was also a Fargo runner-up to Tagen Jamison of Texas. Look for this to be another great match. The schedule begins on Saturday with wrestling starting at 7pm ET/6pm CT. Mendez will be the 11th match, while Carroll will be the final bout, match #14. You can watch all the action with a loaded card of the top wrestlers in the country on FloWrestling. View full article

  14. A name nobody knows yet Andre Merritt 163 junior from whiteland finished the day 6-2 and top 6 in the weight losing to the 3rd and 4th place kids. Beat several good kids including a Michigan state champ, and ended the day with a very respectable 6-3 match against IN state champ Conway.

  19. It was a good meeting with some great dialogue. The bottom line is we aren't going to get better by just having couple teams improve and we aren't going anywhere anytime soon unless we work together. Yesterday was another step towards that.

  22. Very very very good point! You see that same principal with Mason Parris playing multiple sports and not being burnt out going into college.. Also I think Folkstyle serves it's own purpose with developing the FS side with pinning combinations (at jr Worlds O'toole sticking the olympian in a cradle (the same guy Chamizo had a hard time with 3-1) There's should be no debating that training all Styles def helps you become better at each one individually... It's balancing work load and evolving all while having fun and not being over trained and burnt out.

  23. Excellent point Joe. To add to that; the Russians do no more than 7 competitions a year. Because the women focus more on training they are more ready when competitions come. I think to we’ve done a good job as a country of growing the sport of women’s wrestling and I believe the results reflect that.

  43. My son never placed at Folkstate….. until he started playing travel baseball and his wrestling season got cut in half. His best year was last year (year 7 for him) and it was the least amount he has ever wrestled. Maybe 20-25 (rough guess) matches from Thanksgiving to Folk state.
