  1. First off we have to be very thankful we are having a season. It doesn't look promising for the states that have moved their seasons and we are extremely lucky here. I wasn't sure we would get through a month of the football season. I wasn't sure we would get through a month of the wrestling season, but here we are. We all want fans at our events to cheer on the kids. This year has been really weird without fans in the stands. Last night was our first home meet with fans and it felt different and nice to have to people yelling and screaming. With everything else going

  2. I'd be willing to watch state from the North Pole with the Connersville Bowl's internet connection if it meant my kids had the opportunity to compete at state. I'm not a fan, so maybe I don't understand, but having wrestling in any capacity this season is a blessing.

  3. The belief of 'cold weather' killing the virus must apply when ice is on the floor. With that I believe there are two options in order to have 50% attendance. (1) put the mats on ice instead of hardwood or (2) give everyone in attendance free snow cones all day. I am a problem solver.

  5. In an email read yesterday, the IHSAA stated that as of now all 224 wrestlers will not be allowed in Bankers Life at the same time. This makes absolutely no sense to me and would love to hear the justification. Look at these numbers... Bankers Life holds 20,000 people at full capacity. If they were told that they could only use 25%... that would be 5,000. 224 Wrestlers 896 in fans (4 tickets per wrestler on Friday, even less needed for Saturday) 448 in Coaching tickets (2 coaches per kid. Obviously this number is higher than it needs to be due to the fact

  6. Today was an awesome day of wrestling at the Team State Duals. I was at the 3A tournament and was checking results all day from the other 2 locations. The team aspect of a good dual is one of the best parts of wrestling. Watching wrestlers sacrifice to cut a few extra pounds or willing to bump up a weight class to sacrifice for their team to try and get the win is really selfless. Watching teammates erupt from a pin and also watching teammates congratulate their teammate for getting beat by 13 and saving 2 team points is fun to watch. In a year where we were told to stay away from

  8. Hopefully the IHSAA does the right thing and moves the Mishawaka sectional then. I'm over over-reaching health departments on power grabs. My county just went orange, but the Health dept says we have to stay at red level for 2 additional weeks, it's ludicrous. It's just a bunch of old bitties that have been reduced to finding bugs and warm food their whole lives that now feel like they have a since of purpose. Take a hike Dorothy. Let counties, communities, and schools that support this type of nazism get hit where it counts - in their financial pants and once the pand

  11. Mattyb, Thanks for the nice comments about Alec. He was behind Cole Ross as a freshman but kept plugging away and cracked the lineup as a Sophomore. Has some bigger goals now and hopefully with some more performances like this weekend to get noticed. I agree with Y2CJ41, this weight class has a ton of tough kids that should all be in contention come February.

For the first-ever meeting between the schools, Crown Point brought a star-studded lineup. Headliner Jason Tsirtsis was fresh off his third State Title. Tsirtsis’ practice partner, Eric Roach, had just won his second State Championship. Tyler Kral had finished third, while Josh Flamme was sixth. Jake Fuqua and Dusty Schurg qualified for the State Meet. Crown Point won the Team State ti

  19. Let’s quit the faux-fear here. By the time everyone gets to Bankers Life, no one will know who has it, who has been vaccinated, who doesn’t give a sheet, and who can plow through a possible symptom to win a title. If you are 60 or older, don’t come if you are a fan, coach, or ref. Or, if you do, get a vaccine in the next 4.5 weeks. Otherwise, get the kids in the arena w parents or immediate family, and have a tournament. Football had 75 kids in the locker rooms together 6 different times (or a few less for 1A-3A). They spaced the loved ones perfectly with assigned seats, but no way t

  22. I’ll again defer to the progressive stance of the IHSAA for football and continue along that thought process. They allowed 2 tickets per participant. Though they were outside venues, the venues were still smaller than both semi-state and state venues for wrestling minus Lucas Oil and perhaps a 6A stadium. So, my math says 16 wrestlers X 14 weights plus two coaches each is still under 1000 attendees. Throw in referees, table help, trainers, perhaps even concessions, and you have around 1500 per tourney venue. Looks like the two biggest non-coliseums in Indiana are East Chicago and New

  27. I don't know if others will consider this weird or not... but I remember my son's first wrestling tournament loss ever, it was to Tyler in his 2nd grade year at the southmont youth freestyle tournament. I remember the old staging system and his dad and I walking our two young boys out toward the mat having a friendly conversation with fatherly anxiety with each other. Amazing how the time flies by and these little boys grow into men so fast. Congratulations and best wishes to Tyler and the Conley family.

  28. I remember making a drive down to evansville some 7-8 years ago with my boy to get him some good matches in a youth tournament at MD. recall a great match with my son and Cole Ross followed by Alec giving my boy a royal beat down on the day. Drake was on several of Bailey's outlaw's teams with both Ross and Freeman through the middle school years that travelled across the country. I've admired watching both these Mater Dei wrestlers over the years. Both have a lot of talent and heart and will go far and represent Indiana well in the years to come.

  30. There is nothing in the calendar year that I look forward to more than IHSAA state finals. This year would’ve been my 23rd straight. It makes me sick just thinking about not being there as a fan. But the fact that we are still going to have it, and athletes will get a shot at a state title is all that matters. I am really impressed with the IHSAA and the way they have navigated through the sports seasons thus far.

    I have been very lucky to meet so many people and gain so much input from coaches and fans across the state over the last seven years with my involvement with the Team State tournament. I hope everyone is as excited as I am for Saturday. Here is my preview of the tournament for the Decatur Daily Democrat: https://www.decaturdailydemocrat.com/content/team-state-showcase-states-best

    Indiana

    When Asa was going through the recruiting process. Every college coach we talked to did not give two cents what he done in HS wrestling in Indiana (State) . All they ask how is Grades, What you wanna do while in College ? What the school offers in that field ? More Grades questions. National stuff was congrats on your placement. Not one question asking about Fargo, if your going or not . They know what the athletes do in HS . Seems to me colleges focus on a needed weight they need to fill. If your beating high school kids on National level there good shot your beating them on College level

  34. As long as their is a state finals we all are good. If they decide to limit spectators, multiple sessions or whatever they decide to do is okay in my opinion as long as the kids can have their state tournament. As a fan of the sport I am willing to give up my attendance and just pay for it on track or whatever stream they decide to go with. At the end of they day this is about the kids not us parents, friends, and coaches. The ihsaa has done an awesome job this season and I trust them not to let us down.

    Dark Horses

    Anyone got any dark horse picks this year? Here are mine. 106- I think Seng can win it all, coached him this summer and he’s the real deal. Think he’s always been undersized until this year really. Also, think Tishner from Western can place high and compete with anyone. 113- This one is tough. Outside the top 4 I can’t see anyone else winning and throw Cottey into the mix and it’s a party. I think Demarco can shock some people in the state series. 120- I think Tony Wood from Jay County is very solid and could place. I also like Preston Teusch from HN to place high. 126-

If not this would be the first one I’ve missed in 2 decades. Really hoping the IHSAA and bankers life can find a way!
