Re: Teachers strike

I went to the Putnam County Board office and was told the following. "If teachers are on strike and school is canceled there is a 100% chance ALL Putnam County Wrestlers WILL NOT be allow to compete at the state meet. " As a Parent of a Senior Wrestler I am sadden by this decision. :cry: ...

Re: Teachers strike

Coaches have nothing in this as far as I am concerned. Coaching contract is completely separate from teaching contract. No peia benefits come along with coaching. No raises are being contemplated nor demanded by coaches. Coaches are paid by the county I think. I support the teachers in their efforts...

Looked at pairings and pulled up scores here and there. 106 Jace Stockett Univ vs Michael Dolan Spring Mills In an effort to show that Coach Regalbuto’s wrestlers do indeed get respect I am picking Dolan as t...

Re: State Tournament Wrestling Pill

The pill operates on the “assumption” that for the most part all regions are equally talented. We all know this is not true. Always keep in mind that the powers that be make decisions based on that assumption and try to level a playing field that is not even close to level. Once people can accept t...

Re: Undefeated Before States

I'll throw out Amos, because it's a no brainer, and he has the easiest route, but out of the remaining wrestlers listed I would go with Frazier. I think he's the best Heavyweight in the state. I feel like Wharton will have the toughest time winning it all. Off topic and my disclaimer that I lean to...

Based on the regional results, the AAA state tournament will have 4 byes this season. Region 2 at 113. Region 3 at 106, 220 and 285. Lets just leave this all as is. Blame it on a declining population, leading to a decrease in the number of AAA schools in the state. At this point, arguments against ...

Re: Rea Defeats Teasedale

The kid takes on a killer schedule and doesn't change weights to run from anyone but does change weights to get better competition in an exhibition. Sounds to me like a kid we should be bragging about not tearing down. The kid his coaches and parents are to be applauded.
