    Bellarmine Coaching Change

    He was the coach at Heidelberg when I was at John Carroll, they were beating us quite often when he was there. Jason Russell, Head Coach at Thomas More, wrestled for him I believe

    Coaching Candidate Database?

    In the past few years I've spent as a part of coaching searches and the amount of effort needed to find a good candidate let alone get news of the opening out I've been thinking about how easier the process would be if we had some sort of central list of people interested in coaching rather than reaching around blindly. If I was to start up a process of collecting basic information of people interested in coaching to both inform people of job openings and help AD's/Head Coaches find coaches. Would there be buy in from elsewhere in the state? I already have a basic idea of how I'd set it up but wanted to make sure there'd be interest for such an idea.

    Regionals are this weekend!!!

    the fact that kids who were never exposed and kids who would test negative are being denied is what hurts me the most

    Regionals are this weekend!!!

    We had a wrestler exposed to covid at Middle School Regionals. This wrestler tested positive that Sunday and we immediately went into quarantine while trying to contact JCPS about the situation. JCPS would not inform us of the protocol but we chose to quarantine anyway. We never held a practice with said wrestler. A parent from another school was somehow informed about our situation and called JCPS on Wednesday demanding we get taken out of the tournament. We were then informed that per JCPS policy we couldn’t compete until Sunday March 14th. We tried to move the regional tournament to Sunday but KHSAA wouldn’t allow it, we tried to appeal the JCPS decision and they said no

    Regionals are this weekend!!!

    I’ve been asking for a realignment in regards to regions 3 and 4 for a couple years now. Region 4 has 9 programs in it and only four of those programs have over 10 kids in them. Region 4 has been bleeding programs for a couple years now- Eastern and Jtown dropped with several other programs on life support

    State news

    I’ve been big on properly seeding tournaments for awhile. I do think baseline track seeding, when entered correctly, is very good seeding at the high school level with maybe only minor tweaks truly needed

    State news

    I don't think it's clear, will semi-state team points carry over to the state tournament? I am assuming yes based off of context

    State news

    Basically what we have is semi-state being the first three rounds or so of state but without the ability of a 3/4 from another region to beat the 1/2 of a different region because of no random draw which really further highlights the regional differences with how many Louisville area programs have dropped the past five or so years

    State news

    I do believe if it had been top 4 out of semi-state and a 16 man bracket we would be seeing a lot less outrage. The way this bracket is set up reminds me of similar issues Virginia had in I want to say 2015 when they split into 6 or so different divisions and had 8 man state brackets

    State team race if format changes

    I would much rather see a big/small split
  11. All but two voted for it. The superintendent spoke in favor of starting sports back up. practices start today and competitions start Feb 1st
  12. Doss, Fairdale, Fern Creek, Iroquois, PRP, Southern, Valley, Western, Atherton, Central, Manual, Male, Moore, Seneca, Shawnee, and Waggener are all JCPS schools and subject to JCPS restrictions

    Season Starts!!!

    Ya I would prefer two 16 man brackets and KHSAA still gets to keep their money Otherwise we run the risk of doing what Virginia did and divide into far too many classes making the state tournament overly long, boring, and less prestigious

    Season Starts!!!

    As if Union doesn’t already win the title every year edit- but to add I already coached in Div 1 Ohio meaning you had to accept that St. Ed’s was probably winning the title or be in Div 2 and know that Graham is going to win the title. Really just makes constant growth the goal see Aurora now
