    SWwrestling reacted to decbell1 in Things we often overlook   
    Friday night at Maconaquah was filled with some great action and a lot of young ladies putting themselves on the line, but I wanted to share with all of you a photo I took that really hit me. 
     
    Heritage High School hasn't (according to IndianaMat results) won a dual meet in the last four years and they are 0-47 in that time. But every time I see coaches Lockett and Martin, I am impressed at the way they run their program. They are full of energy and passion for their kids. I have seen it at home dual meets, at the ACAC duals and I saw it on Friday night. 
     
    Heritage had one girl wrestling. One girl. Yet the entire team (almost, I think) and both coaches were in attendance and coaching their hearts out and laughing with their kids. This made a huge impression on me and I will be rooting for the Patriots the rest of the year. 
    The whole team spent six hours in a gym to watch Amber Hoy wrestle four matches. 
     
    Kudos to the Heritage team and to both coaches for the role they are playing in their program and congrats to Amber Hoy on her placement Friday night.

    SWwrestling reacted to nkraus in Team State adds 4A UPDATE: 8-8-12-12 teams (the people have spoken)   
    2013-14there were 22 kids on the Garrett squad
    2019-20 we started with 51 and are 49 or 50 now
     
    16-17,17-18,19-20 we made it.  Felt we were snubbed one...maybe two years.  We knew we were close though.  Funny thing is that we were a “bubble” vote in team this year yet we got 2nd.  We’ve been seeded 5th twice and placed 2nd both of those years.  Unseeded to 7th another year.  We knew we could win it this year or compete before we were voted in. In 18 we knew we had a shot as well and came close in a runner up finish.  This has definitely attracted kids!  Believe it or not...our success has improved our feeder system and we have good wrestlers coming up.  ......I’d bet that the same exists for other programs who are excited for the opportunity to win team state.

    Even though Alex is a huge reason why Jesse has been successful, Jesse would never leave Crown Point. The coaching staff at CP is amazing. 
     
    The only scenario where he leaves CP early is if he decides to go to the OTC his senior year, but it sounds like he wants to try and win state with his teammates. Plus his mom and me would like to keep him around a few more years.

    SWwrestling reacted to Mattyb in Junior Worlds This Week   
    You gotta figure he really couldn’t ever train full time year round, prior to this year. He was killing it in football and track. Which I’m sure that he does not regret and had tons of fun. As a middle school coach I try to encourage all my kids to do the same. Mason is a great example of what a young well rounded student athlete should be. My kids will hear about Masons journey no less than 10 times a season!  
    Now that he is training for wrestling year round and full time, the sky is the limit. Can’t wait to see what the future holds!!

    SWwrestling reacted to Sydokun in Thank you Indiana   
    Just wanted to take a second and say Thank you to all the supporters Brayden has had though the years. We new jumping up in weight this year would be a risk, but Brayden has never been one to back down from a challenge. No complaints or excuses 7th, 1st, 1st and 4th plus being one of the smallest in 126 he did a great job and as his father could not ask for anything more. We will be looking to the future and getting a great education thanks to this sport and who knows maybe an NAIA National title along the way.
    Congrats to everyone that won and those that did not keep working hard and you just might find yourself under the lights. To all the Seniors it's been one hell of a journey. Most of you we have wrestled with or against since elementary and though those battles made some great friends or dare i say family. 
    Again Thank you Indiana for giving my son a sport with the best fans and competitors.

    SWwrestling reacted to Hornet Coach in Sportsmaniship   
    I would just like to give credit to the young men and coaches for carrying yourselves like champions win or lose this weekend.  The overwhelming majority showed great sportsmanship and respect for their competitors no matter the match outcome.  There are a lot of people that want to point out the negative, but I think it's important that we take a minute and point out the positive, as well.  Way to represent your school, your wrestling program, your coaches, and your family!  These young men have put a lot of time, sweat, and tears (and certainly a lot of blood) into this and when you don't get the outcome you desire, it is tough to control your emotions.  These life lessons are far more important than any win or loss.  Well done to the competitors and well done to the coaching staffs.

    Oof. I don’t know about everyone else, but from what I saw yesterday, it sure wouldn’t seem fun wrestling any of the Ft. Wayne champions first round.

    This was Southern Wells first trip to the tournament and we had a blast. A big thank you to everyone who organizes the tournament. I think the big delay was just trying to keep the rounds together for all 3 classes. 1a duals were way ahead of 3a. Always room for improvement but I hope we earn our opportunity to compete at this tournament again!

    I don’t want to take anything away from the Perry kid, but this was decided by the ref. Lohrey had  him down 13-2, had him cradled 3 times and the ref wouldn’t call the pin. The kid rolls him over and the ref immediately smacks the mat.
