    Perseverance got a reaction from Juggernaut in New D3 program Iowa Wesleyan   
    Iowa Wesleyan is an upstart D3 program that will begin competing in 2020-21 academic school year.  Not only will they be launching the men’s wrestling program, but will be the first D3 in Iowa to offer women’s wrestling as well.  Coach Powell is actively seeking recruits and is very interested in Indiana’s deep talent pool.  Listed below is his contact information.  This is not only a great added resource/contact for the many coaches with wrestlers who fit the D3 mold......but also an excellent opportunity to continue helping grow the sport.  Feel free to contact Coach Powell with any questions, or to share the contact info of young men & women in Indiana who are deserving of his recruiting interest.

    Perseverance reacted to Mattyb in Is Indiana's wrestling talent decreasing?   
    All of these kids are great. I do know this. Been keeping my eye on our grads from last year that are going D1 (been getting updates from people in the rooms). 4 at IU and 2 at Ohio U. Proud to say they are all making it through the grind and by all accounts adjusting well. We got Littell coming to Ohio next year. I’m guessing others may end up there or at IU. Most of this years champs wrestled on teams together since early in elementary school. Looks like they are sticking together in college. Pretty cool stuff. Most of if not all of this years graduated champs are redshirting. Look for them to wrestle unattached at opens this year. They all should be at the Michigan State Open the first week of November. Mosconni and Washington should be there too. 
    My point is that we have a bunch of D1 talent coming out of Indiana. Not seeing fall off. With that said.. 2016 was a REALLY tough group. Don’t know if any class would beat them.

    Perseverance reacted to Mattyb in The effect of the freestyle qualifiers   
    I know that the qualifying for state deal was not received with open arms. But.... this is what I’m seeing. Freestyle state numbers have risen for the first time in a long while (the last couple years). And... I’m seeing some quality freestyle at the locals! Is it just me? Anybody else seeing better freestyle matches this season? 
    Also... great job by the ISWA for allowing other tournaments count as qualifiers. 
    Freestyle is making a comeback here.

    Great win for Hayden. I think he is still quite aways way from his ceiling and his best days are ahead of him at the college level (which he will be announcing this week). He really didn’t start wrestling year round until his junior year. His CIA crew is helping him tremendously.

    Allred and Mendez both drop their finals matches.
    The main reason for the event is qualifying for the Pan Am team. They only take ONE wrestler per weight so there is a scoring system in place to determine who they will take. If they were to tie with someone the first choice would be the person with the most falls in the least amount of time throughout both events.

    Some additional info regarding the tournament.  Aside from a dominating performance by IN Gold.......the Blue team competed extremely well and captured 3rd place. 
    Excluding the stand out performances......a couple others from the Gold team that deserve acknowledged, begins with Deters.  The young man lost 1 match all weekend and really wrestled at a high level.  Chundi did awesome filling in for Cottey.  He arguably got one of the biggest wins in the final by knocking off Illinois 106 (1-0), in at that point....a tied dual.  He was an octopus in the top position all 3rd period.
    Irrick showed incredible heart finishing his final bout.  With about 30 seconds left in the match.  He appeared to completely blow out his knee.  The young man literally hopped back to the center, and painfully finished the match to ensure we only gave up 3, having to then be carried to the training table.  Trainers on hand speculated complete tears of his ACL and MCL.  Dorian Keys also suffered a likely ligament injury in his knee the day before.  Landon Boe had a pretty major ankle break as well.  Genuine prayers are appreciated for these warriors.
    On a final note......Kentucky’s top team is MUCH improved.  They were pretty Fresh/Soph heavy as well.  Not sure if the KY kids are traveling more or what, but they were hard nosed from top to bottom.  And had a couple kids who are right there on that “elite” level.  Was surprised, and very impressed by their upward trajectory as a state.

    Definitely have. There’s a lot of mixed emotions about it......but it aligns with our goals in an awesome way!  They’ve also adopted the UWW weight classes/age divisions.  So that makes Silas a Cadet for both events.  They’ll be some very tough kids to contend with, but we like Silas’ chances in having the opportunity to represent the US at Pan Am & UWW.
    Its almost redemption of sorts.....and on a grander scale so to speak.  Silas likely would’ve won Cadet National Triple Crown last summer if not for the knee surgery after his Folkstyle Nats title.  Very discouraging falling short of those goals due to circumstances outside of our control.  So the opportunity he’s presented to compete within his age group at the World level this year.......genuinely feels like God’s reward for a certain level of “perseverance”. 😏  Looking forward to the possibilities this summer will bring.
