  2. I have you guys on the list. We are up to 13 teams interested in sending kids. Again, the goal is to get to 16 man brackets. You can send multiple wrestlers in the same weight class, we will separate them and use top placer for team points.
  3. We are hosting a JV Holiday invite Dec. 21st. Have already talked to about 10 large schools that want to send their Varsity B and JV kids. Plan on making it as big as we can for a true "holiday tourney experience" for the non varsity kids. Two gyms 8 mats, track wrestling, awards, team trophy etc. Will charge per kid, not as a team, so if you have 5 or 15, you can make it work. Let me know if you are interested and I'll ad you to the contact list. I will send out more information as to the format when I get a better idea of how many kids to expect. The goal is to get these kids more matches and a better JV experience. Coach Hayes 317-809-5309
  4. Full varsity team (should not have any forfeits in lineup) looking for quality tournament Jan. 8th.
  5. Looking to see if there is interest in a quad or 6 way at Mt. Vernon High School on June 19th. If you have a team that may be interested please send me a text or email. If I can get at least 4 teams I will put it together. Tune up for Disney? randal.hayes@gmail.com 317-809-5309
  6. When did it switch that coaches have to have a ticket? In the past, if you had a coach's card, you did not pay. To coach my athletes, it's $30 ????
  7. We are using similar protocols as what most have stated here. What really concerns me is listening to some staffs that have NO protocols at all and ADs have not even talked with them about protocols! Schools having clubs etc in their wrestling rooms. When we compete against these schools, how can any real contact tracing be done? If we are going to get through this season, EVERYONE must do their part. It sucks and it's hard but it must be done.
  8. Actually, in a pinning situation, the second official should not be watching for a pin at all. His job is to watch the line if close to OB, or the top of the action to look for blood, illegal holds, eye gouging, choking, any penalties, and then let the #1 official know. The best officials leave egos out of it and worry about getting the call right. In the end, that's why there are two of them out there. I had a call overturned Saturday. After the match I thanked the #1 official, not for changing the call, but for being willing to listen to me first, then go and talk with the other official who had a better angle. That's how it should work. Get the call right, no matter what.
  9. You can find out which schools voted for you but not what they voted. The only person with this knowledge is RF.
  10. Ok, so now it begs the question. If 1A, 2A, and 3A all have around 80 schools in them, why does 1A and 2A get 12 and 3A 8? All the arguments you made for that being good for those programs remains the same for 3A. I know why you all are fighting to have more in those classes, it benefits YOUR team, I get it. But having 8 in each division is fair and makes for a better tourney.
  11. Love the idea. Makes for a much more competitive tourney at each level, easier to run with 8 man brackets. Two adjustments I would like to see. 1. Private schools are not "community based" teams and as such should be put in 4A automatically. 2. 3A cut off at 1,800. Puts a more reasonable number of teams in 4A. I commend the committee for listening and making a change to the previous format.
  12. Mt Vernon took a team for the first time, all MV kids. We forfeited 195 all tourney. Went 6-4, loosing 3 duals by 3 points and 1 by 6 I think. Had 2 8th graders and 5 freshmen in the lineup. After loosing all those heartbreakers in our pool, we bounced back and won the bronze bracket. Finished with 8 AA’s! Had a blast, learned a lot! We’ll be back!
  13. Indiana Maraurders looking for 195 to go to Disney. Transportation, lodging, with team. Call Coach Hayes at 317-678-0599 if interested. Coach Hayes
