  1. 113 Noah Lykins of Columbus East Beat #7 on Saturday, then beats #9 and #4 today! Good week for this young man.
  2. Great Post! If I may be so bold as to add one more name to the list. At 163 Sam Morrill from Columbus East finished 3rd only losing to eventual champ Lee 6-4 in the semis. Again great read...nice job supporting the guys.
  3. We really enjoyed participating in this event. Great competition, ran very well! We can’t wait to come back next season. Thanks to Warren for hosting this event. Ty Olds Columbus East
  4. 1994 lol yes I'm old...not sure we got them then. I believe we were at Wheaton?? Was really great to build relationships with other wrestlers (back before internet). I really encourage these young men to take advantage of a great opportunity.
  5. Kudos to Southport and those who ran the tourney. Enjoyed it. Only suggestion, as others had stated, would be to get to the medal rounds before sending us home. We were one of the unfortunates to be one and done. Outside of that job well done and we hope to be back next season!
  6. Nice Medals...I dont remember getting medals for winning back in the old days.
  7. What coach would say...I beat everyone in this field and I am taking a lower seed to someone who did not beat everyone in this field. There was something more to this story. If you beat everyone, you are higher seed. Plain and simple. I am not even sure how there was an argument made.
  8. The Region is now anything West of Ft Wayne and anything north of Indy.
  9. The "Pratice is just not Fun" is one that boggles my mind. I played 3 sports and hated practice in all 3 sports. It makes me wonder what these other sports are doing that kids are loving coming to practice to giggle and laugh for 2 1/2 hours? The worst thing is these 13-16 year old kids believe we've never heard all their excuses. Like we are going to believe it is really anything else then they just cant cut it. I just laugh at this point.
  10. Do Merrillville wrestlers usually participate in this event?
  11. With all due respect to Woods...you think last years Woods would beat this year Parris?? So Woods was better last year?? I am confused with this pick.
  12. Some fans are idiots...but this is not exclusive to wrestling. I have been to almost every sport as a fan and have heard idiots booing. Football happens all the time, basketball seen it many times. Really in any sport where there is high intensity, fans will let it get the best of them.
  13. This is why most rural area schools arent able to reload year in and year out, parochial or not. Top number are usually 20-25, while most seasons are 15-20. Now take into consideration grades, injuries, quitting and multiple kids at same weight class and you can see why having a pool of 25-40+ kids is a huge advantage.
  14. Triple B and Tskin keep an extremely busy schedule at Madison. I own my own business and live 30 minutes from the school, so leaving at 2:30 and getting home at 6:30 during the week. Then Saturday tourneys and trying to make it to youth travel matches on Sunday and Middle School matches during the week. What Triple B forgot to mention is he coaches little kids club during the spring, Tskin coaches Older Kids Club and I help run the little league. Until last season I also ran 2 hour open mats on Sundays throughout the spring summer. This is how many hours you have to put in at a small r
