  1. Congratulations Alec, you are a true stud. Joshua would talk about you all the time. Great work habits, tough competitor, and a tremendous young man. So proud of you. It seems like years ago, but Lance would tell me several times how good you would be, and he was 100% correct. You have a great family, and I am so happy for all you guys. The curse ended and a new chapter has started about Roncalli wrestling. State Champ.

    Uindy lineup

    Not sure of the exact line-up. I have some idea, but would not want to speculate. I do know that Justin Kieffer is RS ( is in nursing school and this would give him the opportunity to attend his clinicals) Josh Kieffer is going 125, I believe DJ is RS, and N. Crume is going 133. They have some solid recruits, plus a host of returnees and some transfers that should create a solid room. The coaching staff is full of undergraduates, and grad students which should be a huge addition for Coach Wartham.

    Mid Season Transfer

    Insert Quote If a student is on suspension at one school, and then mid-season transfers to another school, I would think that the IHSAA should look into the transfer, because on the face of it, that situation seems to lead to the belief that the move is happening for athletic reasons (especially if the student resumes his season at the new school with no consequences). If there is nothing to hide, and the moves are happening for employment, hardship, or whatever reason, then there should be nothing to fear from the IHSAA. I read a rather lengthy post yesterday about giving these kids a break, and forgiving their indiscretions, and while I agree with most of what was said, there is also something to be said for making these student athletes face the consequences of their choices. If these moves are directly related to consequence-avoidance, it sends the wrong message to the rest of the student-athletes, in any sport, across the state. We spend their whole wrestling careers telling our children about the guts, determination, discipline, sportsmanship, performance, and sacrifice that it takes to be a wrestler. We chastise them for their weight and constantly push them to go harder, be better. Everyday in their wrestling room, they learn the punishment for getting pinned, poor performance, gassing - and they pay the price. We hold them to a higher standard, but that shouldn't only be on the mats. If these transfers are due to running from consequences, all I can say is, Man up boys, life doesn't get any easier.

    Just to clarify this whole post, my intent was not to strike a cord with coaches and parents. All i was trying to say was that ( ranking,seedings) and many other reasons hold kids back from wrestling good matches at times. I know some reasons are for strategy, but other reasons arent. Many kids talk up matches to their freinds all week, just for them to show up with disappointment, because the match is no longer taking place. I love all aspects of the sport, and i was not trying to mean that i wasted five dollars. That means nothing to me. I love the sport and am a great fan. I just love to see big matches as do many others. Thats all i have to say about this and will not be posting any further comments about it. That was where i was getting at, not the fact that i lost five dollars. Im sorry for affending many people by this post, hope you understand where i was commin from. **You don't have to remind me about life, i deal with every third day**

    Maybe my $5.00 does not make a difference, but when the sport does not generate a revenue the school might decide to get rid of the sport. I am not refering to Bellmont. All I am saying its not good for the sport. It did not happen to us this past weekend it just appears to happen more often then some would like.
