    Team State updates

    State should have wrestle backs! The upsets and high drama are a lot of fun, but crazy how hard it is to reach our State finals and not have double elimination...

  4. Its 2018... far from the dark ages, can we not find the ability to put individual results in the dual scores. If your not gonna put the results in why put the score down at all, this isnt basketball...wrestling is an individual sport and our state champs are based on individual results! For those that do please disregard this, we appreciate what you do, just frustrated that in an era where drones are in combat, and phones operate off of speaking and facial recognition, and cars can drive on their own, this simple task is only done 50% of the time. P.S. Doesn't everybody use some type of software these days anyways I.E. trackwrestling or mat track...

  7. In college you don’t see them shake hands until after the matches are done...Nobody seems to mind it at that level...not really a respect issue if the whole team does it, and CP is not the only team in the state that does it that way.

    Football vs Wrestling....risk/reward

    Great topic! Very good points Mr. Allred. My two cents on the subject is although Im a fan of the "all around athlete", competing in whatever sport they can, (esp. in high school where those opportunities still exist), its a tough decision that ultimately should be made by the student athlete. My oldest played multiple sports in high school. (football, soccer, and was a wrestler first and foremost). He did the others for fun, and because he was talented enough to play on the varsity level. I supported his decisions partly so he wouldnt burn out in wrestling (which Ive seen happen) and because he was a talented athlete. I will say that I was very relieved after his sophomore year when he decided to just kick, and punt for football, and not play a field position, since I was always apprehensive about football injuries, esp. since he was primarily looking at wrestling in college. Unfortunately injuries can occur at any time in any sport, its always tougher if it happens in a sport your just playing for fun, or that is secondary to the primary one. ( I know of a solid wrestler (state qualifier) who didnt play football this year to focus on wrestling and to avoid injuries, and got hurt at a weekend wrestling clinic and will miss this wrestling season). I also think that the student should make smart decisions ( for example an upper weight wrestler vs. wrestlers under 132lbs playing football). Is the risk higher and worth it for the smaller athlete. Also will they have playing time etc. At the the end of the day, I think you support your kid no matter what choice they make, and help guide them as well as you can and realize that injuries; though an unwelcome part of sports, can happen at anytime in anysport. BTW glad your sons injuries are minor and hope he has a speedy recovery.

    Team Rankings: IndianaMat Dual Ranking

    Most of those losses were without a full varsity lineup...def could've made a difference in the win loss column. That being said Riley is stronger in the individual style then duals.
  13. As usual great job on the mag!!! Always fun to know wrestling season is right around the corner, and the pre season mag is here! Gotta give credit where credit is due...Indianamat is probably the best state specific wrestling site in the country and you guys def. take it with the preseason mag!
