comments: In response to Northern Panhandle Fan's comments on any other team having all weight classes but 1 at State's and dominating like South did in 1995...check out results to 1988 State Tournament. PHS dominated with 7 state champions 1 runner-up 2 thirds 1 5th and 1 6th (only 13 weight classes then). Team results were as follows: PHS 261 Oak Glen 125.5 (AAA then) John Marshall 109 Wheeling Park 104 and South 72.5. So to answer your question of "has anyone known of such domination"....yes I have I was there!

WV-Mat Legal Department
From time to time, fans will cut-and-paste an article from an on-line newspaper and submit same to the forum. You may have noticed that I never (well, seldom) post such, and here is why:
Before I started this enterprise, I wrote to editors of several newspapers to inquire about taking match results from newspapers and publishing them on this website. I was worried about copyright infringement and such. Here is what I learned. Facts cannot be copyrighted, but the written account or description of the facts are copyrighted. Information such as scores and match results can be lifted from newspapers with impunity, because no newspaper can lay claim to "rights" to such info. However, the written description of these events is the property of the newspaper. So, I thank those who cut-and-paste such accounts and submit them to the forum; but, I hope you understand why I choose not to make wholesale use of such accounts.

First I would like to say I enjoy your web very much. Read it every day.
Second: Last week a wrestler from Roane Co. was knocked out by a slam. The wrestler that did the slamming was disqualified for that match only, but went on to wrestle the rest of his matches. The Roane wrestler cannot wrestle for the rest of this week, due to the injury. Maybe, just maybe next week he can return. So who receives the punishment. The wrestler that did the slamming was not punished, he was losing the match, so what punishment was this. I think the rules committee should think a bit about this ruling. Thank you for your time.

comments: to all in the forum!!!!! All regions should have as cllose to the same amouunt of teams as possible that way most people actually have to win a match to get to states and no no no i dont think anyone doubts that parkersbug south is a good school. you guys have as good as shot as any at a state championship with the only teams in your way trying i stress TRYING to prevent you from winning is Fairmont Senior and Hedgesville. two very good teams. and stop comparing matches: well this kid beat this kid whom beat this kid who lost to thsi kid. therefore so and so is better. certain wrestlers match upw ell against other wrestlers. so anything can happen. I PRAY THAT SOEMONE WILL GIV ME SOME FEEDBACK ON WHAT I HAVE PUT OUT FOR ALL TO SEE!!!!!!!!!!

comments: Every year at this time the forum seems to be flooded by complaints about the number of teams in Region 1. This year is no different and now the complainers have expanded there whining to say that Parkersburg South is not deserving of the respect they receive. As far as South receiving too much respect I feel that they have earned it. People have complained that we are living in the past but that is where respect is earned. In 1995 Parkersburg South had a wrestler in every weight class except for 275 I know this because I stood with there whole team on the mat on Saturday night during the pre-finals introductions. Does anyone know of anyone else ever accomplishing this feat.

comments: All of Point Pleasant High School's wrestling matches have been put on the WV MAT or the Ohio Wrestling Page.
Warren Local Tournament
Point Pleasant Olympic Pool
Gallipolis Olympic Pool
Jackson Co. Invitational
Winners Choice Tournament
WSAZ Tournament
New Lexington OH - Ohio Wrestling Page 1-31-00 (5th place)
Athens Olympic Pool - Ohio Wrestling Page 2-7-00
SEOAL Tournament at Athens OH - Ohio Wrestling Page 2-14-00
Regional Tournament at PPHS - WV Mat
All of our wrestling is done in tournaments. We didn't schedule a dual tri or a quad. We think our schedule is one of the tougher schedules in the area. During our season we see the top AA at The JCI Tourn. At the Winners Chioce we see All Region 2 and alot of Region 1. The WSAZ Tourn. allows us to see Region 4 and Region 3. After the WSAZ tourn. we see Lakewood St. Ed. and all of the top southern Ohio teams at the New Lexington Oh tourn. This tournament along with the Athens tournament allows us to see ALL of the teams in our SEOAL Conference. Hope this clears up any confusion.

comments: South is the best team in the state and I think that PHS is going to do very well in the states. As for everybody saying everything about the wrestlers of all the schools don't be trashing them b/c all they are doing is going and trying their hardest. So give them some credit at least they are trying.

From: South wrestling fan
comments: I love to read the forum. It does seem however that the adults who write in are very competitive and try to match this wrestler against this one and this team against that one. We may be missing the most important factor about high school wrestling and that being that it builds character and leadership. We sometimes as adults forget that these young kids are just that young kids and I for one have never seen a loser from any school in a young person who has the dedication to become a wrestler.I enjoy a great match between two good wrestlers or teams and applaud every young person who leaves their best effort on the mat.Maybe as adults it is time we give all kids from all schools the credit they so deserve because in my mind they are all winners!

comments: To Hedgesville wrestler: What I am saying is we would beat you head to head because we are very solid 103-275. You guys have some great wrestlers to compare Stein to Regalbuto is unfair to compare Regalbuto to anyone is hard. I have been watching local high school wrestling for 12 years and Regalbuto is the best I have seen since Kolat. You guys are in the top 3 AAA in WV no doubt in my mind. When you compare the BEST in MD to the BEST in WV I feel they are similiar I am not saying AA in MD is better than AAA in WV. Our top 4 AA schools and top 4 AAA schools would match up well or even with the same in WV. Best of luck to your team. I will be reading this forum to see how you are doing. There is a new forum go.to.allmarylandwrestling.com that you might like.

February 4, 2000
comments: I was just looking at the coaches polls for AAA and i was wondering how Mark Evans from Wheeling Park is ranked ahead of George and Stanley. Nothing against Evans i just think that he should be 3rd with George 1st and Stanley 2nd. Also id watch out for Danny Lord of hedgesville he gave Wenmoth a heck of a match losing by 2 and Stanley got beat by 5. By the way im a AA wrestler.

comments: To: Hedgesville Fan
I am getting a little tired of hearing how much easier it is to win out of Region 1 and how much harder it is to win the state when Region 2 has 12 teams. Do you realize that Region 2 has 4 teams that have sccored a total of 65.5 points in the State Tournament during the past 5 years? All of Region 1 teams have at leat 50 points. So I think that Region 2 really has 8 teams and Region 1 has 7. By the way the top 5 in total points in the Last 5 years:
1. Parkersburg South - 1066
2. Fairmont Senior - 600
3. Parkersburg - 499.5
4. North Marion - 478
5. John Marshall - 476
16. Hedgesville - 181.5

comments: Most of what is posted here on this great forum is our school is better than your school. Well here we go. The Hotbed of wrestling in the state of WV is most certainly is the AA LKC. There is no tougher conference in any division in the state. On a percentage basis the LKC produces more state champions than any division AAA or AA. The LKC has been producing year in and year out for a very long time. This is another reason to say it is the best conference because of longevity. If we went a little further (and included some other teams-dont worry about divisions) you would have to say the toughest part of the state to wrestle in is not the panhadles it is not the south it is not the north but in the western part of WV. The list goes like this. The parkersburg schools St. Marys Ravenswood Ritchie Williamstown Wirt Ripley Pt pleasant Calhoun Braxton Roane... There is no place in the state with more talent as close together as this. But AAA aside the LKC for sure is an awesome tournament with some fierce competition.-THE BEST IN THE STATE

comments: To the former south fan who has now become a cabell midland fan....it is unfortunate that you have changed loyalties but I hardly think 6 years constitutes a "true south fan". WE who are part of the South wrestling family are committed for a lifetime.-that is what makes our program strong and will keep it strong for future generations of fans and wrestlers-'fly-by-nighters'can hitch a ride on some other shooting star. You didn't even give a reason for your change of heart...

comments: To the Sout Fan that told me to look in the wrestling USA magazine. Maybe you should. I know that McGuffey has a great team and they have some kids ranked national. HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU HAVE RANKED NATIONAL. HEDGESVILLE HAS ONE and will have one next year. And at all of the major tournaments you have been to how many champions did you have. It's no big deal that you go there it's if you can do well in those big tournaments. It is not the Hedgesvilles wrestlers fault not being able to wrestle South in a dual match. Most of Hedgesvilles wrestlers they go all over the country seeking tuff competion and win alot of those tournaments.

From: hedgesville wrestler
comments: to Northern Garrett Fan. You are right abuout us beating Martinsburg 44-31 but did you go into past forums from November to December we beat Martinsburg 55-13. I know this for a fact because I wrestle for Hedgesville. You guys have a great team and probably the best team in Maryland A or AAA. But if you are trying to compare and say that A Maryland is just as tuff as AAA West Virginia better check into the subject alittle more. Here is one example Regalbuto AAA state champ Stein A state champ the final score was 22-5 Regalbuto in the second period that about sums that case up. But you still have a great team and good luck the rest of the year.

comments: A simple question why do some teams not post match results....some just post a score others don't even post that much....I would love to see some individual results from Parkersburg...Point Pleasant...and others. I can only see how this would help programs more publisity the better afor all...If coaches are trying to hide something I would think all the good coaches have ways of finding out and scouting other teams...Just seems to be hurting the fans..Maybe some of the coaches ought to take the lead from some of the great teams around the state...South Hedgesville Fairmont Huntington Cabell Midland Nitro all seem to get most if not all match scores posted and it doesn't seem to be hurting thier programs...

comments: To "forum-observer" take a chill pill buddy and turn down the caps. I didn't bring up the stuff about Northern Garrett somebody else did. Here is the age old argument. Does double the student body mean double the potential talent. This may hold true for "team" sports such as Football Baseball Basketball etc. Does anyone think that applies to wrestling which is more an individual sport than anything. Maybe maybe not what are your thoughts. Never denied that Northern Garrett had a good team never denied that they were a smaller school just said that I believe head to head at this point in the year Hedgesville would take them regardless of matches and scores with other teams. Just an opinion nothing derogatory intended.
****Next hey Parkersburg South as far as Hedgesville versus you in a dual meet just show up at Wheeling Park next year and that'll solve everything.

February 3, 2000
comments: Good Luck to everyone in the LKC Saturday. My predictions:
1-Williamstown
2-Calhoun
3-Braxton
4-Ravenswood
5-Ritchie
2 and 3 could flip it all depends on the averege wrestlers for each team they need to score some points and/or an upset or two. Williamstown I believe have it in hand if they wrestle hard. It is the LK and anything can and will happen.

From: A South Fan
comments: To the Hedgesville Fan:
To acknowledge such a ridiculous comment as Region 2 being tougher than Region 1 that is just stupid. When it's all over see how many Region 1 champs there are compared to Region 2. Everyone wants to complain about Region 1 only having 7 teams but who wants to volunteer to come over? The powerhouse Oak Glen went to AA-A from Region 1 and so did Weir and we picked up Morgantown and University. We could grab Ripley Point Pleasant and Roane County since they are the closest or does someone else want to volunteer? Hedgesville? Fairmont? Cabel Midland? I didn't think so. No matter where you would put PHS or South they would probably take more wrestlers than they do now.

I'm glad that your wrestling team has come a long way but wrestling the same schools every week doesn't prove anything. Next year maybe you can ask your coach to go to the Iron Man Tournament at Walsh Jesuit and face the top ten teams in the nation or the Brecksville Tournament in Ohio or go to Reno Nevada and face the top 20 or 30 teams in the nation. Then tell me Region 2 is tougher than Region 1.

By the way South will be wrestling at Fairmont Sr on February 9th too bad Hedgesville probably has all their weigh-ins or they could come over to wrestle with us. Oh that's right Hedgesville didn't want to wrestle South or we would have seen you in a dual earlier this year.

And to criticize the South fans? I think you need to look at your own before making any judgement calls.

comments: To the "Wrestling Expert"
I wrestled in WV but lived in PA during college and for several years afterwards. PA is known for having great teams as well as individuals. 4 of the top 20 nationally ranked TEAMS are from PA right now. As for State Champion Jeff Breese of McGuffy PA being the starter at 112 but not wrestling against South. He injured his knee during soccer season and has been out all year (He attempted to wrestle in their opening match this year but had to default. He then had knee surgery and hasn't wrestled all season). In fact he is helping announce wrestling matches for a radio station. As for McGuffy LAST YEAR they were one of the best teams in the country. This year they are only the 3rd or 4th best team in the WPIAL (similar to a WV regional).
Although I'm no expert I don't claim to be one.

In 94 i backed up Jeremy Hart at 112 but i did get a few chances to start do to injury to Hart i did well placing 2nd at Jackson INV losing to Brandon Clark 4-3 in the Finals I also placed 4th at WSAZ losing to Clark and Silverstein in close matches. Clark took 1st 2nd was Hart Silverstein was 3rd but I felt I was the 4th best 112 pounder in the state but didn't get a chance that year the season ended with 1st Chad Burge 2nd Brandon Clark 3rd Jeremy Hart 4th Corbin: I beat Corbin at Jackson INV alot of you probably would say why didnt you bump up to 119 well Kevic Acord was at 119 and finished 2nd in the state and i couldnt get down to 103.

comments: Good Luck to the Braxton County High School Wrestling Team at the LKC tournament this week-end. These guys have worked very hard to achieve many of their goals this year and I expect this week-end to be no different. Look for another Braxton Eagles win in Williamstown this week-end. Good Luck Guys!!

comments: I havn't really seen anybody bad mouthing south wrestlers on the forum but as a team they are very good exellent. but I have watched them wrestle and I dont think that there is one kid on the team that can compete at a Divion 1 level. I may be wrong but that is my opinion. Where as Hedgesville may have 3-4 kids compete at a Divion 1 level. Regalbuto Lord Moats Bowers Ballam. I also know that you did a great job against Mcguffey and they are a great wrestling team but PA is not known for good teams just great wrestlers. I also know that MCguffey did not have there starting 112 JEFF BREESE he won states last year and beat Stevens convincingly. That makes it 7 MCguffey ad 6 South.

comments: To the Northern Garrett Fan. We beat Martinsburg 55-13 forfeiting 103. They only won 2 matches. Thats pretty impressive. Northern Garrett wrestled West Fairmont and lost by 10 points and we beat West Fairmont by 5. So that means West Fairmont beat the man and we beat West Fairmont so that makes us the MAIN MAN.!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO EAGLES. But you did beat us at the Berkeley Springs tournament. BUTTTT Moats did not wrestle that makes the difference.
