  1. Is a must for what? The training "365 a year" is a big downfall to this whole conversation. We've lost casual wrestlers because a combination of things. But training every day of the year is going to drop retention rates terribly. Youth are getting burnt out from a youth season that starts in November and ends in March. But "if you want to be good you need to do Freestyle and Greco too." So now youth wrestling can be until May. It's no wonder that retention rate of athletes and coaches is so low. This isn't just wrestling, but the youth sports culture is so out of control that parents are pulled 100 different directions. It's easy to stop taking their child to wrestling when they have to travel for wrestling, baseball and basketball, etc... At the high school level, we are asking our kids to train year round because we want them to be the best. But at smaller schools where those athletes do more than 1 sport they don't have time to train year round for 2 or 3 sports. I know coaches that get upset at athletes that aren't there all summer and spring, but if you want to know the truth, those part-time athletes are what is going to keep this sport competitive at semi-state and regional levels. We can't diminish their value because they aren't a state placer or aren't there every off-season practice. More participants will always help increase the competition level.
  2. I don't want to speak for Coach Lorek (but I kind of am), but they were invited to be in the vote-in process this year. He seemed interested, but didn't feel his schedule could allow it currently. I sort of expressed the same feeling that they would probably be close to qualifying for a few years.
  3. I worried that one day we would cut weight classes, but I always thought it would be by 1 to 13 so that there was a logical tie-breaker in a dual meet. I always hoped they added 1 for a tie-breaker. I can’t see how cutting 2 is good for the sport. I do like the idea of 14 total wrestlers regardless of weight class on varsity.
  4. 3A- Avon and Mishawaka 2A- Bellmont and Garrett 1A- Prairie Heights and Eastern (Greentown) All teams have accepted their bids.

  9. I have asked for all responses from coaches to be turned in by Monday March 11th, which is also my birthday. The shortened version is, when I have 10 confirmed for each class, we will do the vote-in paperwork. That will asked to be returned within a week of being sent out. There is no exact date, but mid-april will be our final vote and then we will notify those teams the next day.
  10. as outgoing president, this is Jake O'Neil's fault.
  11. Here is the latest update on Team State Duals for next season: The date is nearly secured as Jan 4th 2020. We have Ft. Wayne secured for next year, but are trying our best to get it more centralized. We are grateful for the venue we have, but are trying to meet everyone's concerns. Here are those teams who have already accepted: 3A 2A 1A Carroll (FW) Jay County Adams Central Roncalli Columbia City Attica Perry Meridian North Montgomery Centerville Mater Dei Wawasee Manchester Brownsburg West Vigo Tell City Columbus East Western South Adams Warren Central Norwell Southridge Wabash
  12. Each regional is dependent on the schools in their regional
  13. I spoke to Robert last week to make sure to send out a reminder to make sure unseeded wrestlers wrestle each other in the pigtail. He said "got it." I am not sure if that information was put out or not to the host sites.
