    For anyone wondering. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_County,_Kentucky?wprov=sfti1 https://maps.apple.com/?ll=37.800000,-82.520000&q=Martin%20County,%20Kentucky&_ext=EiQpZuY9ZmbmQkAxSKH/rUehVMA5ZuY9ZmbmQkBBSKH/rUehVMA%3D

    Wrestling season being pushed back?

    A lot can and will change. I do not foresee a traditional high school wrestling season though. The risks are too high. Best case is an after Christmas start, which is a good thing for the health of the sport in Ky anyway.

    Toughest weight classes at state

    You just proved my point. There aren’t many freshman ranked at the higher weights because they are competing against upperclassmen. The rankings at 106 are simply a ranking of freshman and sophomores. Change is coming to the weight class structure. Of course we need to enable our younger kids to compete. But to argue a 106 weight class is the best of the best is just lightweight bias and not accurate at all.

    Nah. The top freshman and sophomores at 106 aren’t any more skilled wrestlers than the top frosh/sophomores at 126 or 152. The difference is the heavier weights are competing against upperclassmen while the top kids at 106 are dominating middle schoolers and freshman. It doesn’t make any sense to carve out a class for middle schoolers and 9th/10th graders. ...and don’t take it personally. I’m sure your kid is special. He just shouldn’t be called a high school state champion. Jealous? Nah. I’m way passed that and so are my boys. They’ve done pretty well for themselves and I’m happy, too. There aren’t 10 schools in Kentucky who can field an entire team. There are too many weight classes making for too many forfeits.

    Unless your last name is Myers, a 7th grader will be 12 or 13 years old. I see two 7th graders ranked at 106 and no seniors. For that reason I think it should be a JV only weight. 8 of 25 ranked are not even old enough to be in high school!! That’s ridiculous

    106 should absolutely be a weight class...just at the JV level. 8th and 9th graders who win state at 106 aren’t better wrestlers than their peers at heavier weights who get handled by seniors. Of course they end up more decorated but only because they win against middle schoolers. Not a single senior is ranked at 106 this season in Ky. it’s just not as impressive when a freshman wins a state title at that weight class because freshman nearly always win it.

    Spoken like a dad and not a wrestling fan. 106 should be eliminated at the varsity level. Lowest class should be 113. Too many 12 year olds competing in “high school” events. Virtually no seniors and few juniors at that weight class. Too many high school weights presently and the no-brainer move is to eliminate 106 and 220. Make 106 a JV only weight because that’s effectively what it is when 8th and 9th graders are winning it year in and year out.

    Brandon Reed vs Zach Elam

    Olympic team

    The most intriguing scenario to me is that of what J’Den Cox faces. He’s an absolute stud and world champ...at a non-Olympic weight. Does he drop and face Taylor? I think the cons outweigh the pros if he drops. Taylor is big and strong and talented. I think Cox should go up and maximize his strengths against Snyder. I bet he goes up and Cox vs Snyder for the Olympic spot will be epic.

    Missouri Austin Myers

    Ah just shut up already. He isn’t even the best kid from his high school team. He isn’t even the best Hwt from Kentucky in college right now. He hasn’t done anything of note in college and didn't even wrestle the Illinois dual. He may yet raise his game and accomplish something but it has been a huge disappointment thus far in college.

    Missouri Austin Myers

    It doesn't look like he's even in the lineup. Missouri does not like to lose duals. Looks like he is third string, which makes him the backup since Elam is evidently redshirting.

    MS/Youth State will be in Pikeville???

    Reschedule it for a place that isn’t so far removed from 95% of the participants who won’t go to Pikeville. Cincy is a better option. Indianapolis is a better option. This is a very bad thing for the sport in Kentucky and everyone knows it.

    Pikeville is closer to Charleston, SC than it is a third of the state of Ky.
