Re: Is this for real???

What is the record book going to say? As of now WVMat homepage has Jamie Ward is the 145 lb AA/A Champion. I mean no disrespect but is this just the commission giving Hart a plaque to appease everyone complaining? What is the official call? Was the plaque in the photo awarded by the commission? This...

Re: Rea Defeats Teasedale

No angle at all... His win yesterday is a great achievement. All the people he defeated are mentioned, paint the whole picture how it is, not just how you want it to appear.

Re: Rea Defeats Teasedale

That’s an incredible win. So much you should definitely run out and have it published in the newspaper. Oh never mind, you did. It mentioned how he took it to Oak Glenn’s Hall. What I missed between how he took it to the sophomore Hall 5-4 and how he defeated the #3 wrestler in the nation Gavin Teas...

Re: WSAZ 106 JVs

Wrestleoffs are the fair way to establish your lineup but many times I’ve seen the jv kid figures out how to beat his practice partner yet struggles in real competition. It’s none of my business what they do but as an opponent of that team ,I hope they keep the lesser scoring wrestler in their lineu...

Re: WSAZ 106 JVs

Junior varsity! One of my favorite topics. This is one of the reasons why the WSAZ is a great tournament. Many great teams and usually many great JV wrestlers coming in to show how they stack up. The 106lb weight class was filled with all kinds of JV action. Working up the podium, Huntington High h...

Re: WSAZ Predictions

Wv only has 2 wrestlers that are in the Elite category right now and neither one wrestled at WSAZ. One would have been if he didn't attend 3 different schools in 4 years of high school... guess only the "elite" ones can get by with that. Like I said.....Jealousy will get you know where. Y...

This could highlight the evening if things play out. What a great match that could happen! The O....

Re: EF vs EF

No, 'Hugger, that's not quite what I said. The state tournament is not the other tournaments. The potential to meet in ANY round, especially the semifinals, would most likely result in an easy win for the starter. Taking the loss here would be the only safe choice. So, no, wouldn't have to be the f...

I don’t hate Big Sandy but I love Wes Banco besides the concession prices and buying your ticket to get it. At least you don’t have to stand outside like before.

Congratulations to this young man and great job to whoever does their scheduling. Our wrestlers could not do this even if they went undefeated 4 years in a row. And it’s only the 1/2 way point for this season. Great accomplishment!!! Congrats!

Re: AAA,AA,A Team Rankings

I prefer to focus on the individual talents. Of course when your team forfeits 3 weights and 7-8 other weight classes are filled without a wrestleoff that’s all you got to look forward to. Some very average teams build a nice record off teams like ours. And there is not a thing we can do about it bu...

Re: AA/A teams to watch out for

I’m not a huge team fan. I think it takes away from the great wrestlers that are on teams without a full roster or do not have many committed wrestlers. It’s kinda like a football team, you got some in tow and some that can compensate. AA/A had 2 of the 3 undefeated wrestlers last year but only 1 wa...

I will be impressed by the kids that don’t drop to 195 because of Braxton Amos. I think a lot of people will try to avoid him. I’m not implying everyone will but there will be more than just a few.
