    Weight class survey

    Was not required by the NFHS to vote on this yet. They just had a board meeting and voted on weight classes for 3 seasons from now, but don't have information on if going back to normal post season, or top 2 from quad states, or top 4, or location. That was low hanging fruit and easy. Working with coaches association to get back to what the wrestling community wants for a post season is being dodged and neglected. But glad they chose 14!

    Weight class survey

    Why are they voting 3 seasons out? This does not take effect until 2023-2024. Alot can change in those years. The rule can change again. Schools voting may not have teams. Some teams may exist that don't right now. Kentucky could have an influx of wrestlers or a major drop off. This vote should happen the season prior each year so it is based off of a current landscape. Let's try working on something important, like fixing post season, securing a venue, making sure that the right kids are at the state tournament. You know, all the things that were a debacle this year.

    Venue for next year..

    Haha. Flexible, like not having a post season plan until the 11th hour, not one that any of the coaches or participants desired. That kind of flexible or the kind at the beginning of the school year says regionals will be on this date and states on this date for venue eligibility. Pretty sure we can work our schedules.

    Venue for next year..

    For the sake of argument or open discussion: Bellarmine was home on February 6, away Feb 12 and 13, off on the 20th, and home agin on the 27th. Guessing their schedule is published in advance of our season beginning, being flexible with a week plus or minus 1 week, and schedules will normally flow the same for home and away, would not take much to figure that out each year.

    State Tournament Follow Up

    I could care less if a referee even brought a mask to the venue. Was not a cut on the officials. And I agree people in the stands were not able to distant. You stated KHSAA looked the other way or overlooked alot of things, but for what reason. Bottom line is no decision made by the KHSAA was for health reasons, only for reducing day, time, and labor. There was more room last year for distancing with 32 man brackets at a larger venue, with unlimited ticket sales than there was Saturday. The decisions made were under the name of covid, but not for safety reasons. Here is a picture of Saturday Morning last year, no restrictions, full brackets, unlimited ticket sales. Look at all the empty seats and ability to social distance. There was no ability at the high school gym. Now tell me how this past weekend prevented anything except less kids getting an opportunity, and a shorter weekend for the governing body. Basketball kept Rupp Arena under the name of tradition. That is fine but wrestling deserves the tradition of 32 man brackets, top 4 from each region competing for a shot at a state medal. Not reduced down to limit work. If it is too much work for the governing body, then allow the coach's association to run the tournament and give the money to the khsaa. To say people in the stands, they were not wearing KHSAA logos on their chest or being paid by the KHSAA that day. They were just stuffed into a high school gym because they were told this would be safer than last year. Hopefully next year is a better year for Kentucky Wrestling!
  6. Have not seen anything or anyone putting anything together for High School National Duals at Virginia Beach. Is there anyone heading this up or any interest amongst wrestlers to put a Kentucky Team together. Have done this event multiple times and is a great event for wrestling and family get away. Will leave this here for wrestlers or coaches to reach out and gauge an interest. 109, 116, 123, 129, 135, 141, 148, 155, 163, 173, 185, 198, 223, 288 Let me know if interested and best way to put together a team and training opportunities.

    Brackets are out

    Well considering they said last week was round 1 of the state tournament, carry over of team points, giving an extra pound as this is day 2, the wrestler actually weighed in last week to be in the tournament. Same as not making weight on day 2. Turns to a forfeit. Do I like it, no, but I can follow the logic of it. Kids name has to remain in bracket by their rules because he will still be a stat placeras the 8th place medalist.

    hypothetical question?

    According to NFHS, if you wrestled in the bracket at any time, medical forfeits and injury defaults are counted as a loss. Not at collegiate level though. Unless something changed in last couple of years, it is an L on record.
  10. It is not too late to make this right. Governor Beshear announced an update of COVID-19 restrictions that will go in effect on Friday, March 5. He says capacity at the following establishments can increase to 60 percent: Indoor auctions, barbershops/cosmetology/hair salons, bars and restaurants, bowling alleys, indoor educational & cultural activities, fitness centers, funeral and memorial services, government offices/agencies, massage therapy, movie theaters, nail salons, office-based businesses, places of worship (recommendation), retail, tanning salons, tattoo parlors, and vehicle and vessel dealerships. If bars and restaurants can be 60%, there is no reason the state tournament can not be increased from 15% to 50% which would allow for at least 16 man brackets with parents attending. Let's make reasonable adjustments as the state is moving forward!!!

    USA Wrestling State Tournament?

    More than a pound??? Then you may as well call it different weight classes. You are already given 2 pounds when you win the weight class. Make weight, move up, or move out. My opinion.

    State news

    Trackwrestling is a database. Bad data in produces bad data out. If team A lies about results, and Team B is honest, but team B kid has a head to head or common opponent win over Team A, are you going to adjust to correct or just say oh well it is too dangerous to get this right due to COVID?
