Re: Fight for every kids’ right to wrestle in Huntington

Excellent post. A strike is a form of civil disobedience. Defying a superintendent's order next weekend is another form of civil disobedience. The only basis the superintendent could base this decision on is safety. Obtain an affidavit from your union rep that sports will not be affected and no coac...

Re: Dutton Questions

I think the voters get it right about every year. I can't say for sure...but it would be my guess that if the Amos family had a vote for the Dutton Award for this year, they would throw it Josh Humphrey's way. It is this kind of character which it takes to raise a young man as talented and impressi...

Re: Powerade Wrestling Tournament 2017

If you have seen Mason Parris you would know that he is on a different level. I have no problem with any ranking that puts him at #1. Mark gave Mason way better genetics than I gave Braxton and on top of those genetics, the young man works his butt off. Great hard working kid who will have success a...

South Wrestling Nationally Ranked

Parkersburg South broke into Intermat's National Rankings at #47 this week. Being the highest finishing unranked team at Ironman made people take notice. Keep up the good work.

This is what I could find for the history of the Ironman for WV wrestlers. Sorry if I missed someone it was not intentional. This could be the year that a West Virginia wrestler from somewhere other than Wood County makes the podium. Hall and Rea are in loaded brackets but are capable of placing. Th...

Re: Background checks for coaches and refs

Coaches go through a process which include background checks before they are approved by the board of education. True for lay coaches every year. True for teachers when first hired.

Re: Super 32 Lone Wolves

I see your point for folkstyle tournaments like super 32 or NHSCA but you can't blame the wvssac for low WV Fargo numbers. Coaches get a bronze card and coach freestyle/Greco any time they so desire. WVSSAC has Olympic sport exception in the rules. If you get your bronze and open your room The kids ...

Re: Two-piece uniform approved

The college out of bounds for falls and near falls is great. Why not add the college rule on take downs on the out bounds as well? The problem with this rule is when you go to a tournament with "pee wee" mats wall to wall. There are rules already in place for this problem :?: but year aft...

Here is a summary of the rule changes. I like some, thought that some were already rules, and they again missed some glaringly stupid rules in favor of making themselves look busy: 1. Two piece is ok (but they'll get back to us on whether fight shorts can be substituted for compression shorts). 2. N...
