Sitting here behind DingoBrigade, just interviewed Kayla Miracle for the South Bend Tribune.
She's not happy at all, says she didn't feel like herself all day, felt sluggish even in her wins.
You can check out the story in Sunday's South Bend Tribune. Go to: www.southbendtribune.com
Gotta get in a plug to justify my expenses.

An all too familiar story for Hump....big lead, then starts to let up and fatigue....gets a big TD to take a 12-9 leads. Huge, clutch move by Hump...Kennedy coming for him, Hump slides by and counters, leads 14-9..Hump at his very best right now...Kennedy throws a challenge, not sure what he's challenging, appeared that Reece clearly had another TD to potentially take a 16-9 lead. Hump countering Kennedy's aggression with smooth slidebys...challenge apparently successful, it's 14-10, 11 seconds left...Hump wins 14-11. Huge win for Reece.
bellrs got a reaction from TeamGarcia in Trinity Award Winners From IN ?
Ben Stewart won 12u Outstanding wrestler at Tulsa and was part of the World All-Star team that year. I am pretty sure that Chad Red was on the all-star team also that year. I know it is not the Trinity award but the all-star team was based on placement at those tournaments and was an honor. Aside from the horrible drives to Oklahoma, I used to love taking my son to the Roller tournaments.
Congrats to the new generations of little guys getting it done out there and Reno.

I wish I had the type of luck to slap a cradle on a highly ranked kid and pin him. Some people get all the breaks.

bellrs reacted to takedownartist in Boycott Freestyle State
These parents are spending thousands of dollars a year on travel expenses to out of state and Indy tournaments, academy and/or club membership fees, private coaching lessons, etc. for their kid to compete at a high level...why not have the same parents pay $20 entry fee to the local club (that is hosting the freestyle qualifier tournament they are missing) as a donation as a condition of exemption for the ISWA team kids.
This would lessen the host club burden and the team parents burden of schedule conflicts.
Win-Win again for the time v/s money issue.

In order to become a licensed IHSAA wrestling official you can follow this link for details on the process.http://www.ihsaa.org...72/Default.aspx
Specific points about the On-Line Testing Process that you need to know:
- The testing process is an on-line application. No longer do you need to plan to be at
a site on a certain day. You do need to have access to a computer to take the test. You
will need to plan when to take the test within the Testing Period indicated for each sport and
submit your results before the deadline. This is not a timed test.
- No on-site paper and pencil tests will be provided unless you are taking a class in that sport.
- Application Deadlines must be met.
- The test is composed of 100 questions, mostly True-False, but a few multiple choice. You must earn 75% or better on the test to
- You should receive your rules books from IHSAA as soon as they are published and available by the NFHS. If you are testing in more than one sport, the books for the later
seasons will be sent when those books arrive in the IHSAA office. Please begin to study for the test
upon receipt of the rules books.
- You may only take a test one time within a program year. If you do not meet the 75%
standard this program year, you will need to wait until the next program year to apply again.
- You should not apply to take a test in any sport whose deadline dates have passed.
- You should receive immediate feedback on your test results but you may not schedule
contests until you receive the insignias and license card from this office which should come
within 7-10 days after your test is submitted (and you have scored 75% or better).
Remember, you do not have to be licensed to officiate middle school events or elementary events, and this is a great venue to work and gain experience, especially for those of you who are unsure as to whether or not you actually want to proceed to the high school level. It's a perfect part-time job... especially for a college student. It's a 100 question test that is open book and done online, so you are allowed ample time to complete the examination with little or no stress.
Also keep in mind that nearly all officials begin at lower levels and work their way up, so you will not be thrust into the high profile varsity contest with 3000 screaming fans in the stands. If you like the sport and are physically able, becoming an official is a great hobby that pays well, gets you in the door for free, and gives you the best seat in the house!

Just added some Andy Hughes fella to the roster, heard he is decent.
bellrs got a reaction from grecoref in Rypel Without A Doubt Most Dominant Wrestler
Blake pinned his first three opponents and was not scored on at all in those three matches. He and Jones are friends that have wrestled in the finals the last 4 weekends. Blake knows that Jones is a great wrestler that would give it his all with nothing to lose. Jones is more dangerous than many realize. I am sure that was in his mind after watching the many upsets this weekend. He wrestled safe with the ultimate goal of winning that match. He accomplished that goal and earned his 2nd State title.
bellrs reacted to RASSLER4LIFE in Subtle Tribute
I just want to give a big shout out to Alston Bane and all the wrestlers from Cathedral at state tonight. The Cathedral wrestlers and Alston paid tribute to my late son, who passed away in November. The Cathedral wrestlers wore green laces in their shoes, the green is to show support for mental health awareness and Alston wore green in his hair and on honored him on his warm-ups. I can't thank these young men enough for their show of support. It is much appreciated. Thanks again!
bellrs reacted to Howe in New Castle SS Predictions
Looks like grappleapple's gut feeling was right on the money. Based on a second grade showing or not it is hard to beat a good wrestler two weeks in a row. SOOO before you start ridiculing someone, you might want to wait until the results are in...
bellrs reacted to grappleapple in New Castle SS Predictions
Because I work full time, have a bunch of kids in a bunch of sports, have a wife that expects me to clean up after myself, occasionally I go outside and...mainly..because I don't have the time to research every wrestler and their head-to-head record. I do know that in second grade Worm was a stud - so I'm basing my pick on that. And I'm sticking to it.
