  1. I was skeptical about the weekday tournament before, but most have turned out pretty well. It hasn't been too much different than attending many of the Saturday events where you normally get 3-4 wrestlers in your weight class anyway. And now that they have become more advertised thing rather than a couple clubs trying to just sneak in an event at the last minute for their own kids to qualify, I think most people appreciate that additional option weekday events provides. If anyone in the central or southern part of the state (or the north if you want to make the drive) still needs to get another qualifier in, Seymour is hosting a weekday tournament this Wednesday. We had a pretty solid turnout last year for our first time hosting this type of weekday event. Almost everyone got at least 3 matches in, everyone wrestled on full mats, we were out the door at a decent time, and you get to be in the newly crowned largest high school gym (according to permanent seating calculations).

    True story. Help yourself now while you have complete control over your fate.

We are looking for a young, energetic, passionate, and hard-working coach to help with our middle school program continue to grow and improve. The ideal candidate would be someone with head coaching aspirations at the high school level. They would also have a strong wrestling background in folkstyle and international style wrestling.

Current Teacher Openings: Elementary Teacher, Elementary Art Teacher, Temporary Math (HS), possible opening in Social Studies (HS), many openings in the ELL area. If interested, please contact Todd Weaver at weavert@scsc.k12.in.us.

    The event is for none seniors. Each state sponsor gets to decide who they want to make up their team. Ideally we should see some of the top none seniors from the surrounding state but that doesn’t always pan out. In Indiana’s case, Indiana Blue and Gold teams are originally the the highest placing none senior from our state. If the wrestlers choose not to participate the coaches try to go down the placement order to the best of their ability to fill in the lineup. The additional Indiana Renegade teams are selected by the coaches and are generally comprises of mainly semi-state qualifiers with a few state qualifiers if they are still available. It’s a good event but it would be nice to see some of the top talent from the mid-west/Big 10 states show up to the event to help bring more national attention to the competition.

    Several time it’s been IL edging us out for the title, but IN has came out on top a few previous times if I recall correctly. Ohio’s jump in the mix a few years too.
  7. Bo get the Hodge Lewis MVW of NCAAs Foster most unlikely champ.
  8. Didn’t know that one. Thanks for the info.
  9. Ok so 132 was his junior year. Make me feel a little better about the extreme weight jump to college. He was part of that early Monster Garage/St. Bosco crew that once included Aaron Pico.
  10. Foster maybe the most unlikely national champ but good for him.
  11. What’s crazy to me was watching Zahid wrestle as a scrawny 106 stating HS and then grow into a monster of a 174lber now. I think he was 132 for his HS senior year. He could definitely move up to 184 after his OLympic Redshirt next year.
  12. Zahid is a little bit of a big moment gamer that seems to put on his best performance in front of the big crowd. I’d like to see Red follow a similar path of stepping up most night and then finding a way to grow from his couple defeats along the way in order to be at top form by the big show.
  13. I’d be good with a 2 of 3 decision if it was made quickly. Ref, assistant ref, and an independent video review ref. Kinda like they do in freestyle.
  14. This is the action most hoped to see from Fix vs Soriano but didn’t. Glad these guys want find a way to earn some points.
  15. This is my match of the night. Hope for a multiple scoring occasion on this one.
  16. Lewis was a junior world champ, but most wrestling fans didn’t know his name until this weekends. He ran through all the top guys in his bracket (Marinelli, Wick, Joseph) and earned the title. On a side note he only beat Cael McCormick 4-1. So in retrospect a decent showing by the Golden Knight and Yorktown grad.
  17. Lewis just pulled a Joseph vs IMar on Joseph.
  18. Joseph may need another freak TD to back points move to possibly win this one now. Lewis has become a household wrestling fan name over the course of this weekend.
  19. They said awhile back they have tightened up a little more with who gets an Olympic Redshirt compared to previous years where a ton of wrestlers got them. I’d say Hall and Manville (Greco) likely gets one, but Lee may have to finish decently high in this years Senior Trials to get his. Love to see him advance far at the senior level, but I’m not sure where the new line is to get the Olympic year. However, if it helps him and Joe get a year to together on the PSU starting lineup I’d be all for it.
  20. Yeah the “grey shirt” group will help since they are getting some additional college room seasoning. But that still a younger group with some college growing pains to get through even if they are at the penn state talent level. It will be interesting where they put some people and who ends up with a regular redshirt. But if it doesn’t all fall into place with the extra year guys, a down year for PSU at this point is still likely a top 5 finish.
  21. Yes they are especially with losing the other seniors, plus possibly a starter or two to a Olympic Redshirt year.
  22. Had the same problem, had to check on one of my children. That would be my guess too.
  23. Worth noting Ashnault was lucky to get this extra medical year based on previous injuries cutting some previous seasons short. Glad he’s able to make the most of it.
