    2018 Head Coaching Changes

    Just a little extra info on the Hobart job Middle school record in duals 64-0 in the last 5 years Hobart Wrestling Club is one of the longest and largest running (78’) non academy clubs with typically 50-60 wrestlers and several state placers at the ISWA levels. As well as wrestlers Training with RWA,Elite,and Bulldog Elite Hobart Wrestling Club also acts as a booster for ALL of Hobart wrestling. This year a beautiful new mat was purchased...new singlets. HwC hosts 2 open tournaments drawing a combined 800 wrestlers plus Golf outings and other fundraising events. The Hs is less than 10 years...old great wrestling room,fieldhouse, and gymnasium...already expanding weight and cardio rooms and building a new pool. New Athletic Director that seems to really have his eyes on what the program could be. Former wrestler and CP coach Jake Rodriguez as an Assistant Pricipal which is nice to have understanding people in the Administration. RTC host as well as IHSAA regionals host..To go along with a great tradition...and community support...could be a great job for someone who wants to pump some new energy into this program and take it up to yet another level!! we have some young hungry Brickies coming up !!

    ISWA Folkstyle State - adding sectionals, regionals...

    The hardest part about that is many club tournaments fall after HS state so. A long time ago you had to place top 3 at a tournament to qualify for state....but lets be honest...there are almost 2000 wrestlers there this weekend....Thats a lot of money to put the piggy bank. My biggest concern is some of the start times. Peewees starting at 2pm is a nightmare..These kids have a hard time staying into it after round 2 in a 4 man bracket and 2 hours into a tournament...now 4 and 5 year olds get to run around for hours before they even wrestle...Those who are gonna be on the podium are those who can fight through the adversity of naptime...lol

    Wow - Fattore pinned himself!

    Hobart's Fattore loses controversial semifinal at state wrestling finals Feb 17, 2018 at 7:30 PMJim Peters jim.peters@nwi.com, 219-548-4363 INDIANAPOLIS — A questionable final-minute pin call abruptly ended Zack Fattore's undefeated season and a run at the 170-pound state championship in Saturday's semifinals at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. He sat on the mat stunned by the outcome, while an equally surprised Jordan Rader of Peru celebrated. Upon further review, it shouldn't have happened. Advertisement: Story Continues Below Fattore showed a video taken from the video of the match that his shoulders were not secured against the mat, so the pin call was wrong. "I wasn't pinned, 100 percent," Fattore said. "That doesn't mean I would have won for sure, but in the moment, I wasn't pinned. My coaches asked the other ref if he could see a different angle, but it was indisputable. I asked another ref and he said it was bogus. It sucked that my only loss was on a controversial call, but things happen. I fully accept the ref's call. I'm not going to be a crybaby about it." The irony for Fattore was he could've eased through the final minute and won a match he was leading 3-0. "I took a risk," he said. "I've been holding back on my technique. My whole goal the whole tournament was to wrestle my full potential. I told myself I wasn't going to lay on the mat." Fattore was scheduled to wrestle Munster's Cody Crary for third place but Crary defaulted after a leg injury sustained in his semifinal match. "I didn't get a chance to prove to myself that I could beat Crary by more," Fattore said. "It was a pride thing for me. I just get to focus on school more now.

    That’s just Zack. As we all fight for him... he just carries on as a great human being. Good luck Rader!!

    Good luck to the 170lbers the finals. From what I was told Crary isn’t wrestling in the 3rd place match. So Fattore outscored opponents 34-0 and got 3rd. No matter what you think of the call that has got to be a first. Unscored upon.... and didn’t win

    Yes it was. Lots of refs today in matches wanting to be involved.

    At best it was a touch fall. At worst they robbed a kid from a title match.

    Man. I’ve never seen a defensive pin called that fast. Not saying it didn’t happen I couldn’t see his shoulders from the side I was on. But mat 3 refs are certainly making their presence felt in big matches today. Unusual calls.

    Unsportsman Like Conduct Call on Peele

    Hobart guy here too. Brock is an awesome kid. It was a big win for him. Maybe didn’t love it but it’s okay. Portage has a bunch of good kids. It’s all good.

    Moreno Lowell

    He had a great tournament. Both in the semis against Peele and then again against Triana he was getting controlled and both matches down 6-1 going into the 3rd. Went takedown crazy and cutting against peels to send it to it and the eventual takedown win. Then with a minute left hit a TD and back points on Triana to tie it and send it to OT then he again got the takedown for the win. He doesn’t panic.. just gets to work. To be honest he looked Big at 120.. didn’t look undersized at all. It’ll be interesting.

    There are many ways to look at it...not sure it's fair to say Hobart dropped the ball though. Great guy, going to a great program with some awesome guys that are going to be mat side. We'll miss you Bren.. Best of luck at CP and at Elite Athletic Club.

    ISWA State Question

    He's not my son..just an awesome kid in our club..he didn't complain went about his business. I just was really puzzled..one of our other coaches handled it an he said they were not having it. Just seems like there would be a better way to make sure everyone is where they need to be when it is brought to there attention.

    ISWA State Question

    How about when the iswa doesn't fix their mistakes like entering a kid weighing 81 lbs as 87 so he has to bump up to 90..ridiculous..our boy even went back on the scale for them to see and they wouldn't change it. He got 4 th at the bumped up weight but got muscled his last couple rounds. It just makes no sense to me.
