  1. I think everyone else has caught up and has the mentality that was in this area during those times. Wonder how much of it is due to many good athletes going off to college in other parts of the state or other states and not coming back. The bloodlines then go to different regions creating success? It seems more people around here are trying to move to Hamilton, Marion, Hendricks, and portions of Boone Counties. Then our smaller schools lose some to our bigger schools like Northwest Allen and Southwest Allen, but not as much as the others.
  2. Hope I'm wrong, but I don't see it. Think some 3rd/4th are more likely.
  3. Maybe if 2 or 3 in a row happens. Find a way to improve the IHSAA's success factor in that they only move up for 1 year and not two?
  4. Your reasoning is why I'd have both. Smaller 1A schools with not much history could aim for a class system individual champ. 1A teams with success could strive for a single class champ. Teams like AC work towards the class team duals and the MD, PM, CP, and etc could work for the old single class dual. Still could track like the IHSAA does for state like now for both systems.
  5. Will there be a success factor like the IHSAA for classes 1 to 3?
  6. I'm asking as my step daughter has been practicing with her club in Ohio. Their club is newer and this is her fist full year with them. Last year she joined late after basketball since it was her brother's first year with the club and our first experience with them but not enough practice to do any matches. Currently her club is doing tournaments that are mostly boys, but a few girls. We will let her participate, though she is at a disadvantage for her age. Many of the boys she will be having to wrestle will have much more experience plus she is on the lighter side, so my guess will be that she will possibly have to wrestle up. She is still a work in progress in learning the moves but doesn't have it really down yet. My fear is that she will get severely discouraged and want to quit the sport. I see potential that just needs a little more time. I think it would be easier for her to handle if she could also wrestle other girls her age and possibly weight to keep her confidence. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Being involved with the youth football for AC & Bellmont, we were surprised that Bellmont started to have better numbers and actually competed with the AC teams. In fact one of their teams won the regular season and the other team surprised and finished runner-up in the tournament. Maybe the 2A title will help the situation for them. The number of split families and one parent households for Bellmont is much more and I think that is part of it. The culture in some sports isn't there with the parents. Adams, Wells, and Jay to extent have a hard time keeping our college grads around. Most move towards Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, and etc if not completely out of state.
  8. Said this a million times, but we need the IHSAA and IHSWCA to join forces even more than right now. Like posted above, they need to get rid of the schedule limits so that you can have single class individual & classed individual tournaments and team dual tournaments. 4 tournaments to get more wrestling in and hone the craft of our best teams and individuals. Not sure if we start earlier or same time as other states, but I know Ohio ends a month later. Why not have the classed individual tournaments and classed team dual tournaments in early to mid January and treat them like Al Smith's, Mater Dei event, and other big individual & dual tournaments? Then have the single class dual tournament in February and single class individual tournament in March?
  9. Is this the year that 1A doesn't go to AC or PH? AC is young this year so I'd give PH the edge, but didn't know if there was a team to shake it up this year?
  10. They must have combined the Red & White at Wayne Trace I'm assuming. They had all of the answers the last 2 rounds. Crestview had been rolling and then got thumped pretty hard. AC was hanging tough in what was the unattended championship crossover match. Then Wauseon brought the heat and it was over with. I see on Yappi where they are advertising offseason work all the time. There coaches & fans were really into the matches which is good to see. Hopefully that can translate to Crestview & Parkway's newer teams in the future.
  11. At least they are covering high school wrestling in our area. Yes, it can get frustrating on the homer aspect, but AJ & Rex have earned it in a way. I like watching the sectionals, regionals, & semi state on the webcast personally. Heck I may put the radio on this year to have background. Wish the IHSAA would let them webcast Friday night and Saturday up until the finals where it can then be watched on FS Indiana.
  12. Wauseon has a good program going in the youth & up. They took no prisoners last February in the youth dual at Wayne Trace. They went right through both teams we were supporting. They demolished Crestview (Convoy OH) in the pool and then beat AC handily for the top spot.
  13. We are doing it this year and like it. Helps I went to AC so I know most everyone. My step son attends Crestview (Convoy) OH and is learning a lot. Did his first Rivals night at South Adams on the 6th where he learned what he needs to work on for his practices at AC and Crestview. It's no pressure live wrestling where kids can have fun and learn. Definitely beats the double elimination tournaments starting out where you wait long periods between matches and have to see the luck of the draw based on who has more experience.
  14. Is this something that NE Indiana has a jump on the rest of the state? They call the area one around here "Rivals Nights". It was fun to have my stepson participate against stiffer Indiana competition than he had last year in Ohio. It's a bit chaotic to begin with, but a good way to get some quality reps in.
  15. Does the IHSAA share offices with the NCAA? Sounds like their logic. Why not suspend the player and coach (and other guilty parties) for the year and leave the presumed innocent out of it?
