  1. So, this was a discussion after an athletic director proposed it as a rule change. I was just part of the explanations and not the proposal. But if I remember the explanation correctly, the commish said it was not proposed correctly. If the proposal had said something to the sorts of competing against teams outside of the travel restriction, as long as they came to us or a neutral place within our travel limits, that most likely would have passed. But because the proposal was about lifting travel restrictions, they would not go with it and to try again the next proposal series.
  2. Having sat in on the meetings where this travel rule was discussed, I at least was interested to hear the IHSAA's side of it. They worry about lifting a travel rule and it helping the rich get richer. Say little Edgewood couldn't afford monetarily to send a team past 300 miles (nor should they) and big a wealthier school could. Now say that Edgewood has some super stud that was open to considering other schools. Now they see a schedule that offers going to Las Vegas for a tournament and my kid transfers schools. Transferring seems out of control these days anyways, but the point is understood. Wrestling is less of a big deal than basketball by far. So they are really concerned about basketball just turning into an AAU circuit. Anyways, maybe a travel rule isn't the answer, and it's not my decision. But hearing that offered me perspective I had not thought of before.
  3. There is a GPA cut-off. Therefore anyone meeting that criteria is in. More the merrier!
  4. It's sectionals time. Such a fun time of year to honor our hard work and athletic accomplishments. The IHSWCA wants to make sure we are rewarding our academic accomplishments as well. Academic All-State nominations are due by Monday February 3rd, 2020. Honorable Mention is 3.25-3.74. Academic All-State is 3.75 and above. JUNIORS: Email JD Minch at jsaminch123@sbcglobal.net your athlete's name, grade, school, and a copy of their transcripts. SENIORS: Email Mark Line at markaline65@gmail.com your athlete's name, grade, school, and a copy of their transcripts. Any coach nominating an athlete must be a member of the IHSWCA. If you are not already, you can join at this link: https://ihswca.org/membership/signup/ Good luck this weekend.
  5. Working to make things even better... just need a few days to hammer out details!
  6. There was a survey put out to all IHSWCA coaches last fall regarding this. Overwhelmingly people felt 4 classes was best for the sport. You don't want the state duals to become watered down. So going 12 per class felt that it would be watered down and too big. I understand the concern of having 8 in 4A but half the schools. I guess I consider it the same as football state. They have 32 in class 6A and the other classes have 64. 8 is a cleaner bracket. 8 per class makes it about the same as previous years. One of the good things about this setup is that in each class, the top is about twice the bottom. 3A, was currently 1000-5000 The state didn't want to keep this event. I believe the IHSWCA has made it a very good event. We have continued to propose Team State to the IHSAA each proposal year and they haven't been keen on it. I think that all of the great people putting time into this event have made it better than ever. You wouldn't believe how many people are just donating their time to make this awesome. As always, we continue to evaluate things. If this doesn't end up being what is best, things can be voted on and changed again. I do appreciate reading feedback, especially suggestions on how to improve things. Understand we ultimately are trying to do great things for the sport and put out a great product. Feel free to contact me anytime you have a suggestion or question @ gratliff@rbbschools.net

  8. No. Sorry that was misleading. My understanding is that the if you go 5 tournaments than you could have 7 duals. Or 4 tournaments and 8 duals. we were told that “points” weren’t really a thing anymore when the 6 duals became the standard.
  9. There aren’t “points” per say anymore. You can have no more than 6 tournaments (or an event with 3 or more matches). The conference counts as one of your 6. you can also have 6 duals. Triple duals count 2 of your duals and not one of your tournaments.
