  1. This girl beat out the top girl who had all the seeding points. Japanese women are like Russian men only better. They've got a line of 5 girls at every weight that would win medals.
  2. Sarah Hildebrandt starts working toward another world medal late night tonight in Kazakhstan. She has a bye into the Round of 16 where she'll be the 10th match on Mat B at a little after 2am. She'll be favored in that one but she unluckily drew the overall favorite Japanese in the quarterfinals. That match would most likely be sometime around 3am.
  3. Right...I think their participation in the past shows interest as well, but the scheduling issue has been a deterrent for them and other DAC schools, including this most recent qualifying process. To be clear, P, I'm not trying to call anyone out. Each program is responsible to do what it thinks is best for its kids. Selfishly, I would love to see them in the event against the other top teams with all their star power.
  4. Can someone who cares about CP wrestling please organize a group of influencers to convince their program to come show their talents at Team State once or twice during this upcoming run? It would be a real shame not to see fully where they stack up as a duals team while they have all this talent over the next number of years.
  5. I was around him a lot of times from the early 90s to late 2000s, but I won't forget the first. In my 8th grade mind in 1992, undefeated Aaron Wilson of Warsaw was unbeatable at 119 pounds and destined to win state. But senior Mike Ester had other ideas. After getting beat by Denny Schwartz of Adams Central at regional, Mike out-gutted the favored Wilson for an incredible upset win in a semi-state ticket round death draw. He went on to win semi-state and then take 3rd at state, beating Schwartz in the consolation final in his last high school match in a rematch of their regional championship. I distinctly remember my first glimpse of Ester's passion in that upset over Wilson and I saw it many more times in his coaching over the years. RIP
  6. The Moldovan lost a hard-fought semifinal to the Japanese and Boyd is eliminated. Tough tournament. The U.S. ladies only got 1 out of 10 to the finals, one or two will get bronze, and the rest are eliminated.
  7. Alara gives up a series of takedowns to a very tough Moldovan and falls by tech late in the quarters. Hoping the moldovan can upset the Japanese in the semifinals to pull Boyd back in.
  8. Alara goes down 4-0 early off of an arm spin takedown into a gut by the Asian champ Kuznetzava. Late in the first, Alara starts attacking underhooks aggressively; which leads to a counter takedown off of a Kuznetzava shot. Boyd attacks hooks hard out of the gate in the second, gets double unders and threatens a body lock, and Kuznetzava panics and goes for a throw. Alara puts her to her back for the comeback fall! On to the quarters.
  9. He gifted the Russian all 4 points in my opinion. Takedown was off of his own needless erratic bouncing around. Step out was lack of mat awareness. Challenge was really bad situational awareness. Had to be a maddening feeling walking off the mat. I felt for him.
  10. Anybody else think Parris looks like he's shed 5 pounds of fat and added 7 pounds of muscle since March?

    Several posts up:
  12. Stevan Micic just picked up a silver medal yesterday representing Serbia at the European Games (continental games in the olympic tradition). All the big European nations brought their best guys, so his weight was very solid. His biggest win was over the European champion and World bronze medalist Atli of Turkey in the quarterfinals. Stevan is very much a medal threat for worlds this year and the Olympics next year.
