Re: 1st Annual WV All-Star Classic

I hope this is pursued and implemented for the fall of 2018.

On a similar note, Christiansburg High School had a wrestling competition October 14th. The word I got was the event's participation has dropped off in the past two seasons. CBurg is not too far and is an option for next fall.

Re: Help a Wrestler

Three rides for one wrestler. There was also a 4th. This is what it is all about.

I think the young man has a ride now.

Thanks!!!!!

Help a Wrestler

A WV wrestler signed up for Super 32 has suddenly lost his ride to Super 32. He states he just needs a ride to Greensboro and everything else is taken care of. He states he can get a ride to Fairmont, Parkersburg, Charleston and/or Beckley. If anybody has a spare seat and is willing to help, then gr...

Re: Strength of Regions AAA. Crunched the numbers

I agree with Mr. Carmen. People made fun of me and said that I was just trying to get the South people riled when I said that defending ovac duals champion John Marshall will be a dominating force again this year. Wheeling Park is already loaded from top to bottom and with the addition of their sup...

Re: Region 4

I like what they have done in track but I'm not sure it could be used in wrestling. In track they take the 3 top qualifiers in each region plus the next 4 best times regardless of region. That means a region could possibly have as many as 7 qualifiers in an event. In wrestling, rankings would have ...

Re: Size DOESN'T Matter

Two seasons ago, Swafford was at 220 before finishing 2016 at 285. Last season I heard he was around 220 still. Another wild card is Ripley's BJ Haynes. He has been a tough match up for everybody the past 3 seasons. He has told me the past two seasons that he might go back down to 195. With Jarvis' ...

Re: Region 4

What I am saying is, now its possible the 5th best wrestler in the state could miss the state tourney. With a 2 region system the left out wrestler could at best be the 9th best wrestler in the state In theory you are correct. The problem is the 5th best wrestler could still miss states. All he has...

Re: Strength of Regions AAA. Crunched the numbers

If you look at points scored by region at the AAA 2017 state tourney region 4 = 761.5 points region 1 = 394.5 points region 3 = 328 points region 2 = 231 points These metrics clearly show the imbalance of the AAA regions. I see it being basically the same way in 2018 except it is possible that regi...

Re: Strength of Regions AAA. Crunched the numbers

A while back everyone was in a snit about the re-alignment of the regions, so I did some number crunching on the subject and noticed something very interesting. Here is a breakdown of all placers for each grade by region Region 1 Freshmen: 5% Sophomores: 11% Juniors: 6% Senior: 7% Region 2 Freshmen...

We shall wait and ponder the great mystery of life and weight classes.

If they don't rank someone who was out with an injury or played mul...
