  1. Qualification for Fargo will be done through USA national Freestyle and Greco-Roman events as well as regional events. National events will take precident over regional events. Central Regional will take precident over all other regional events. All that is required is participation, but placement takes precident over participation. UWW Cadet & U15 is 4/23 - 4/25 @ Wisconsin Dells UWW Junior is 4/30 - 5/2 @ Coralville, Iowa Central Regional is 5/21 - 5/23 @ Fort Wayne Indiana

    If it were to become reality, it wouldn't happen in a high school nor on a dirt floor.

    State on track?

    Just FYI, the NFHS and the KHSAA own all video rights to all post season events.

    State news

    If the 3rd place kid at region is the second best kid in the state, with his only loss to the best kid in the state coming before region finals, the seeding at region was done wrong.

    State news

    Track wrestling keeps track of all wins and losses recorded in its system, as well as limited other info. Not just season info, all info. Now that flosports has purchased track, I'm sure there will be far more criteria. So track seeds the event based off of total body of work. I the event that 1 region champion who has a huge amount of criteria, and gets seeded 1 but has a loss to the 2 seed another region champion during this season, you simply adjust that. It's not a finality. I will say however far more often then not track has it right.

    State news

    Correctly is exactly what you would get. It cuts thru all of the arguing about records, who beat who with no head to head. All of that. How many times has a coach argued that a kids seed should be higher based on a something and 0 record, when in fact half of the kids wins were against the same 5 opponents. Track seeds kids based on all of their wins and losses. Fact. Also, there is really no need to seed semi state. 1vs.4, 2vs.3, 3vs.2, 4vs.1. Bracket set up and ready to wrestle.

    It's not impossible for track to seed these tournaments. The lack of coaches uploading info and results is what leads you to believe it is impossible. But the fact is, they could easily be seeded by track.

    State duals

    Tilghman seems to be banged up. Have been missing big hitters for a while now. Under normal circumstances I would agree with that statement. Larue possibly as well. Either way, WV should be at state Duals to determine the answer to that. They are clearly the best team in section 2, outside of mere technicalities. This is a a shame!

    State duals

    My guess is the only small school in the state that is realistically beating WV is Union.

    State team race if format changes

    This is fairly simple. Regional events held as normal. Top 4 from each region move to a district tournament. 2 regions per district 1vs.2 and so on. This makes an 8 man bracket per weight class per district, with 4 districts advancing top 4 to state for a 16 man bracket at State tournament. This doesn't get 32 wrestlers per weight class to the state tournament. But it does come very close to getting the correct 16 to the State tournament. With restrictions being what they are, 32 is not a realistic accomplishment. This adds 1 weekend to post season that is much more manageable. Just my 2 cents.

The tournament will be held at Taylor Co. Highschool. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unable to access the football stadium. I and KY/USA Wrestling sincerely apologize for this.

  21. Here is the updated 2018 Schedule. Note the Dual Team Qualifier has been change to April 14th at Bullitt Central due to a scheduling conflict with Scholastic Showcase. I will post the Qualification requirements for both Dual Teams, and Cadet & Junior Nationals later this week. Spring Schedule 2018.docx
  22. Here is our response. The requirements for all dual teams are listed on this website. These were approved by Ranger123, at last year's meeting, and in emails prior to them being posted. Once the qualifier was complete, there were 5 kids that filed paperwork showing interest in being on the team. Of those 5 only 2 paid deposits. After that there was no paperwork filled in form of petition or otherwise with the state. I continued to communicate with Ranger about the schoolboy dual team. He sent a list of people that had shown interest. Still no paperwork or deposits from anyone. This went on for 2 weeks. I last communicated with Ranger on Sunday April 22nd. This is the communication to him, and I quote. "We will take deposits until the end of the tournament this Saturday at Oldham Co. The entry fees to these tournaments are not refundable. We also have to reserve rooms before we enter, and order gear for those who don't have it. If we don't have deposits, we won't be taking a team" His response was, and I quote. "I will see what I can do this week" Of all the kids on the list that were interested in being in the dual team, only 1 was at the tournament in Oldham Co. This deadline was put in place due to the fact that there was a non-refundable $1500.00 entry fee due by May 1st. Not only that, but ALL wrestlers are required to wear matching singlets. And these singlets are personalized. This was also at Rangers request. You can see from my communication with Ranger that there are a lot of things that have to be paid for. What is not mentioned in that communication, is that we also have to pay for an official to be there or pay a $500.00 penalty for each style. And with no expression of interest by simply filling a petition for a spot, with a deposit. It's not wise to spend all of this money to make this happen on a team that only exists in theory We fund these teams very heavily. And absolutely want them to participate. Just not to the extent that we are willing to sacrifice loosing several thousand dollars.
  23. Breakfast will be available at the tournament.

    Daviess Co. Freestyle & Greco-Roman

    The head coach for Kentucky Wesleyn, Coach Freije will be at this tournament. He will give a clinic to all wrestlers that are registered for the tournament. This will be an excellent opportunity to get in front of and talk to one of our college coaches in a tournament setting.
