Re: State superintendent meeting with county superintendents

Look at this situation from another angle. Now teammates and fellow students can come to the tournament to root on their peers without missing class.

Re: State superintendent meeting with county superintendents

The last paragraph of that article states that the girls sectional tournament and the state wrestling tournament will go on as planned.

I support the teachers but I sure hope this doesn’t effect the state tournament. I’m sure we all feel the same way.

Since we are exactly one week away from the semi finals I’d like to know which matches have the potential to steal the show Friday night. Some of the best matches I’ve seen have been in this particular session.

Re: Teachers strike

There are counties today listed as weather related, work stoppage, and some with no reason listed. IN MY OPINION, IF anyone stops a young adult from competing next weekend in Huntington that goes to far in what they are trying to achieve. I do agree our teachers are under paid but I am not up to da...

While that story is interesting. I could go either way on a dirty move or a brilliant one. BUT... What does that have to do with the Pill?

THe Love of this Sport.

I’ve been involved in wrestling my entire life. As a youth wrestler I had the privilege of wrestling greats like Steve Higgins and Rob Archer. I’ve made numerous friends through the years thanks to this great sport. When my son reached the age I made sure he chose wrestling over basketball because o...

I’m not sure if he’s 45 or 52 but I wouldn’t leave Ward from Winfield out. Shamblin from Sissonville at 220 could also pull the upset.

This class is wide open. I think Gavin Shamblin of Sissonville is a serious contender to win this class. He is really coming on going down the last stretch of the season.

I wouldn’t mind Wheeling if football wasn’t already a mainstay there. To have another state tournament that far away from southern West Virginia would be tough on us.
