  1. Actually had this a couple years ago wrestling at Antwerp where adults wrestled a senior division. A former Bellmont wrestler who is coaching the Crestview Convoy OH (my step-son's school club; he also wrestled with AC for rivals nights & beginner tournament) club won his group. He wrestled one or two of my wife's co-workers that were good wrestlers in high school in Ohio and are Ohio Highway Patrolmen. The crowd loved it as two heavyweights in late 30s to 40s wrestled a OT match. Both were gassed in the 3rd and OT and eventually the smaller one took a chance but got butt dragged and los
  2. Yes, should have been more specific and said Fall sports to late fall into winter. I wouldn't be opposed to Wade McClurg's suggestion either.
  3. If it has to happen, then move Fall to Winter, Winter to Spring, and Spring to Summer. Relax the IHSAA rules on spring sports to allow summer seasons (non IHSAA) to happen in conjunction.
  4. Like this! I've had similar thought to this. I called it "Combined Style Wrestling". I like having the 3 minutes compared to my idea. I'd have sub-periods for top, bottom or par-terre. I'd say wrestler wins the toss they choose the style and then the opposite chooses top or bottom for 30 seconds and then they switch. The final 2 minutes are neutral. I'd not let falls in one style prevent the others to be completed, but make each period independent of the fall/tech fall of one technique. Make it winner of rounds by still keeping your scoring method.
  5. Very cool to see our family friends, the Joseph Gremaux Family honored for their dedication to the sport of wrestling. There family passed the love of this sport to my family and many others in the Adams County and Adams Central community.
  6. Wonder what the numbers are on large school make up vs small school make up in the semi states? Is it that Ft Wayne just has smaller schools making it up? If so then it is the philosophy of those schools fielding athletic teams to a small extent. I personally think that is another reason that coincides with not having academies. The struggle seems to be more than just in wrestling. It seems to be in most boys and girls sports. A lot less state championships in team sports in this area than years past as well. Great example is girls basketball where Luers would bring home trophies almost every
  7. Not sure that is going to fix much either. Like I said earlier, I try to keep up with teams in a 20 county area. In wrestling that means teams in 3 of the 4 semi states. There are 2 to 3 counties I don't follow in the main semi state area of Ft Wayne not included (Howard, Miami, and Cass). East Chicago teams in that 20 county area (Wawasee, Warsaw, & Tippy Valley) didn't have any finalists. The Ft Wayne semi state had 3 runner ups in that area. New Castle had the lone champ with Allred. 4 of 28 finalists. Evansville SS and Indy and surrounding area schools dominated along with Crown Point.
  8. More like mid to late 2000s at the earliest. The 10's going into 20 has not been kind to the area.
  9. My bold prediction of 1 winner blows up and we have 0. Very frustrating that we are stuck in this rut in NE Indiana. In the 20 county area of NE/EC Indiana that I try to keep a tab on for sports, only 1 champion and that is from 3 semi states (East Chicago, Ft Wayne, and New Castle).
  10. You have show them how much more $ they'd make. $ talks to IHSAA not common sense.
  11. Glad track is doing it, just don't like it compared to the local broadcast where I can watch all 4 mats at once. Not a fan of having to switch from mat to mat.
  12. Honestly I'm surprised the IHSAA is continuing to sponsor the sport. Sometimes I think it would be better if we would just drop the IHSAA and let the IHSWCA be the only governing body. It is bold and extreme, but it would get us to where we want to be sooner. We would no longer be held hostage. We could have wrestle backs and first round scoring.
  13. Wish the IHSAA would let The Berne Witness webcast Friday night and Saturday up until the finals. I will listen to the radio broadcast, but really like to watch the Witness webcasts.
  14. They should have 6 people on set for this production. Have to have Rakestraw & Goebel as the hosts to keep it on track and then put one rep from each SS on it. Have to have a Region rep for EC, The County rep for EV, someone to rep for NC, and someone from the #1 County to rep FW.
