  1. He's been at a very high level for awhile He did an exceptional job who seemed to know a little about what he was speaking about
  2. Current New Palestine HC and former Evansville Reitz 2009 Alex Johns 197-15
  3. I've been wondering the same thing since Alec won his title last night.......there were a lot of naysayers on the board after his SS performance. 4-time SQ 3-time placer and a state title now on the resume. Hardly anyone was giving him a shot on Friday night of advancing. It definitely was one of the best "runs" this weekend. Pretty good run to the top thru Cummings, Lee, Rooks, and Mulkey. Congrats again Alec White on a terrific senior season and HS wrestling career.
  4. Woohoo.........I knew Alec could do it... Way to go Alex and Alec!
  5. Wrestling is just something special! I know as parents we all have watched, cheered, and been supportive of our kids over the years as they competed in many wrestling matches. State weekend will always be something special to me as both my sons had the opportunity to qualify and place in the state championships. I have been one of the lucky parents that have gotten the opportunity to watch my son as he competed in high school and in college. The sport of wrestling has extended many opportunities for him in his life. His accomplishments on the mat and in the classroom have made me proud. Unable to attend this evening.......I just made the call to him........ to give him some typical Dad advice and best wishes. I don't know if I'm more nervous for him as a first year head coach on Friday night or his previous three Friday night matches in HS. (3-0 on Friday nights.... ) First year head coach - first year in the chair. Best of Luck Coach Alex Johns and New Pal Alec White!
  6. Good preview Y2CJ41, but you did forgot to mention the new bathroom remodels in the gym.
  7. Congrats to Brandon Wright on his 141 Nat'l NAIA Championship and to Justin Brooks on his 133 Nat'l NAIA runner-up finish. Quite an accomplishment! Interesting thought came to my mind as Alex ends his college career this next week in Cleveland. How really good was the 08 & 09 112# & 119# wt class? Could be the best in the last 5 years? It's hard to have that much success stacked into a weight class for two years and then have it be the same guys! Brandon Wright, Justin Brooks, Camden Eppert (2X NCAA qualifier for Purdue), Alex Johns (3X NCAA qualifier, 5th in 2013 for U of Indy). All 4 of these guys were in the top 5 at State in 09!!!! They were top 4 in 08 also at 112!!!!!! Add an underclassman at the time, Justin Kieffer (2X NCAA qualifier for U of Indy) who finished 7th in 08 and 09 !!!!! WOW !!!!!! Pretty impressive college resumes for a great group of HS wrestlers.
  8. Great post hook and half. I have to agree that there isn't an atmosphere anything like this anywhere in the state. This history represents the respect that is shown by the majority of the fans. I only hope that the respect and history continues for many years to come. I never wrestled in one of these duals, but it leaves me my own perspective from my son. He has always said that the feeling he had when wrestled in his 4 years of these duals was something he will remember for ever. The atmosphere was always incredible. He even said it was more exciting to wrestle away at MD than at home at Reitz....... 8)
  9. U of Indy Greyhounds had a great weekend on the mats last weekend. Congrats to all the grapplin' hound coaches on an outstanding 2nd place finish. Congrats also to all the placers and teammates supporting the Hounds. Great job also again to my son AJ on his championship and MOW!! 8) 8) http://athletics.uindy.edu/news/2013/12/15/WREST_1215132012.aspx?path=wrest
  10. Congrats Alex Johns 2009 Evansville Reitz graduate RS JR 125 lb 5th place 8) 8) and Cameryn Brady 2010 Lowell graduate JR 149 lb 7th place 8) 8). Here's U of Indy link http://athletics.uindy.edu/news/2013/3/9/WREST_0309134723.aspx?path=wrest
  11. Best of Luck to the U of Indy wrestlers this Friday and Sat in Birmingham, AL at the DII Winter Festival which includes the Wrestling National Championships. Alex Johns 125, Justin Kieffer 141, Cam Brady 149, and Evan Wooding Hwt. Alex and Cam are nationally ranked and Alex is ranked #1 ranked 125 lber in the country!
