comments: To Yours Truly
Wenmoth and Westbrook have not guaranteed victory. That is mearly the opinions of others. They do all their talkig on the mat Neither one of these boys would talk like that aways they know better. Yet it seems to me that neither Kupfer nor Hughes have ever defeated either one!

comments: Wemouth and Westbrook from Williamstown have guaranteed victory for states this year but I have some news for them: I happen to know that there are 2 people that have been training hard and they are Hughes and Kupfer both of cameron. They don't know who will wrestle 125 and 130 ...
thats what i say about them and cameron also has another person who will win state and make it look good and that is brown at 119 ...

comments: That is not Frankforts line up whoever posted that did not no what they were talking about. Some of the people have already graduated or are not wrestling this year.
Editor's note: Hmmmm. I took it off. It's always something.We are not having very much luck with line-ups this year....

comments: I wouldn't count Hedgesville out of the team state championship.They have all their starters back and are shaping up to be a great team.their returning starters are: kevin ballam, jimmy shetler, dustin bowers, anthony regalbuto, brian moats, and justin snyder; which all scored big points last year.Plus a new improvement in the team in danny lord will put Hedgesville over Parkersburg and Parksburg South in the state tournament.
good luck eagles!!!

comments: Does anybody have information on the field of teams in the Brooke Classic December 10 and 11.

comments: How can Roane have a Takedown Tourney on November 20? I thought that that the season started on December 1. They couldn't possibly have enough practices in to wrestle. Look at the schedule page for Roane County High School. What were the results?
Editor's note: I probably shouldn't presume to speak for Roane County, but I believe this is actually a multi-team scrimmage. I think that several teams have scrimmages scheduled prior to the start date for regular matches. Or it could be a typo...

November 30 1999
comments: WOW I can't believe that South is going to an instate tournament this year. Their schedule it says they going to WSAZ. It will be the first time in a long time they been at that one or any in state tourney other than Regionals or state

From: It doesn't matter.
comments: Everyone is talking about Oak Glen and Williamston. Oak Glen will be good but you still can't forget about Cameron. They have 5 returning place winners from last year and half of their team was sick and they still did that much. well here is there 1999-2000 line-up.
103-Jared Ross-jr
112-Shawn Fullerton-so
119-Tucker Brown-so-3rd last year
125-Roger Kupfer so-2nd last year and Tyler Hughes jr-2nd Fresh
130-" " " " "
135-Caleb Lucey-Senior-5th as sophmore
140-Joel O'neil-so-6th last year
145-Tag Macilvain-senior
152-Jeff Hughes-senior-6th as Fresh 3rd as so 2nd as last year
160-Wyatt O'neil-jr-4th last year
171-Chris Wood-Senior
189-Curt Meyer-so
215-Luke Roupe-Fresh
Hwt-Steven Stoneking-so
That will more than likely be camerons line up this year and as you can see they can't be left out. They do have a couple of weak spots but they will still be very strong.

comments: If you watched any Jr. Hight wrestling last year what I'm gonna say will be no surprise. Expect to see Independence High School have a good finish in AA/A this year. Coach Gilson one of the best and will do wonders with his already talented team. Independence was the last team in the state to win a AA/A state title before Oak Glenn and I'd love to see it happen again. Good luck eveyone.

comments: Wood County Jr. Highs travel restrictions
According to a phone conversation I had with Wood County Jr High Athletic Director Milt Mollendick On Nov 18th the Jr High Principals voted to allow the teams one out of county trip per season at their expense. I do not know if this only pertains to wrestling or if this allows overnight trips.

We are still in the process of organizing a duals tournament for schools to come into Wood County on Dec. 30th. We are still in need of four teams and we should have a finalized package within the week. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and watch those calories.

comments: about Wood County Jr Highs being able to travel out of the county to wrestle-Where did you hear this? When was the decision made?
Editor's note: Er, um, someone sent that info in to the forum.

comments: My series of Camp of Champs is concluding this weekend. The past 7 weekends have been a huge success. Many top coaches and wrestlers have been in attendance. I have visited 6 different states and total enrollment has surpassed 800 kids. I have hired MANY coaches to keep pace with enrollemt and maintain athlete:coach ratio of 10:1. On a WV update note - Mike Mason visited my Nashville camp and was a big hit with kids. Mike is in his 2nd year of Chiropractic School in Atlanta Ga and is doing extremely well.

I am wrapping up my series of camps with BOTH a tourney and Camp of Champs this weekend. The tournament is Friday Nov 26. We will use 7 mats and there will be about 500 kids. There is a high school division as well as kids age groups. Camp of Champs will immediately follow the tournament. I guarantee you that either or both of these events would be well worth your road trip.

Directions to Penn State can be found on my web page http://www.olympianwrestling.com Also I have recently updated my web page and written a couple timely training tip articles so check it out. Have a great Thanksgiving with your family!

comments: stevens and george at 112 and 119 for PHS sounds right but who will be in those weight classes at south this year??

November 23 1999
From: old wrestler
comments: all the speculation in the world will not help figure out who will be the state champs!! It all depends on who makes weight who stays healthy and with so many good wrestlers in the same weight classes on the same team....who wins the wrestle offs.
