  1. Last week
  2. Earlier
  3. Junior college season time frame released today: -fall practice through October -practice starting January 1 -competition starting January 20 -Championships end of April
  4. Another great option!
  5. Dark horse is not open yet, but if kids in the Rock Hill, Fort Mill, Lancaster area are looking for a place to roll they can go to C2X. It located on the border of Indian Land/Fort Mill and is run by Tom Tanis (EIWA Champion and All-American at Rutgers) and Tim Hennessy (Former Team Captain at Rutgers). They also have quite a few recent graduates of Division 1 programs that roll with the kids.
  6. No question we are at a disadvantage there compared to most states. In the big picture, the lack of quality club/training opportunities outside the HS room is the biggest factor in our top tier depth growing. I think that upstate already has options in Darkhorse, The Upstate Mat Assassins, The SCSOW, etc all have facilities not affiliated with a school I believe. It’s actually the Lowcountry ( Dorchester, Berkeley, Charleston) that is without that option right now. That said, I think that will change. This CV19 is going to highlight the need for these facilities to exist. There are probably more wrestling rooms constructed/converted over the past 4 months then in 3 years in SC.

    The 2020/21 Season

    The problem is facilities to train as there are few private clubs with mats away from the schools in SC.
  8. They are already holding tournaments in private venues. Obviously utilizing school facilities is out of the question, but private venues is already happening next month. The State/Schools are going to air on the side of ridiculousness, so not expecting much on that front. I don’t think they ever had any intention of kids going back to school in the fall. Al these surveys I’ve gotten.....it’s all smoke.....I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see a sanctioned HS Season. Maybe they can run a 2 week season. Or weekend for State Duals. One for individuals!
  9. First, I’ll put there as a fan and a parent of a HS Wrestler, I hope somehow, some way, they can get some type of SCHSL Wrestling season in. Saying that though, I believe it is very obvious that there is a very real chance that the politics and fear of CV 19 could prevent any HS sports from taking place this year. While that would be unfortunate, there are some interesting opportunities that could create. Several States are already preparing for no HS sanctioned wrestling. There are already large clubs and coaches who are preparing to privatize the upcoming season. We could very well see large, independent dual and individual tournaments every weekend. State, Regional , National events....An unintended consequences could actually lead to better wrestling week in and week out at the HS level. Just look at the potential for our our own state. Imagine an SCYWA type event every weekend for HS kids, where there is no classifications, just weight brackets. We could potentially see some of the most competitive HS wrestling we have seen in the State.
  10. I was just informed that we have a PE opening at the school for those that would be interested.
  11. I hear Clinton is starting wrestling.
  12. I thinks it’s safe to assume that Dixie will have a wrestling program within the next couple years. Especially if they’re already searching for mats. That will also make things difficult on Abbeville’s program since Dixie students are currently wrestling for their team.
  13. I saw on scmat where Crescent has a new HWC and also on that same page where Coach Martin is looking for wrestling mats for Dixie High School. Is it fair to assume Dixie is starting a wrestling program? Also, I swear I saw that the Florence 1 schools (West, South and Wilson) announced they would be starting programs as well. Anyone else see, hear, read anything about this?? I know Cody Slaughter is the new AD at South which if FSD1 is not starting wrestling now I can only assume again that his hire means South will probably have a team in the near future. FSD1 schools are the only 5A / 4A hold outs left when it comes to fielding teams.
  14. He's chasing picnic baskets? .... OK, I can believe that, carry on.
  15. This was absolutely needed for 4A to even be remotely interesting, as last year it was the least competitive classification with no one being close to Eastside. Lugoff going back, May River and IL going up should bring some spark back to 4A.
  16. Indian land moving forward into 4a will be interesting and who ever takes that program over will be in good shape ! Looking forward to watching all classifications next season !
  17. IL will more than hold their own in 4A. Anyone considering them an underdog or long shot in 4A has not truly watched them wrestle. We wrestled them in a dual, watched them at dual state, watched them at Individual state, and follow them enough to know what they have coming back and up from 8th grade.....they are a serious contender.
  18. Best part of the internet is all the negative people can’t just let the post be about a job opening
  19. Pro's and Con's of this job Pro's - the ferrari has already been built / just don't crash it. All the pieces have been put in place with a solid community to boot. Con's - whoever takes over will be leading IL into 4A against the machine down there in Taylors, SC. Can still continue to get kids to state and create individual state champions but winning the duals title requires a trip through brushy creek road. IL's time in 4A will be short lived. By the time the class of 2023 (this year's 9th graders) are seniors ILHS will have over 1,600 students. My guess is IL will spend the next four years in 4A before moving on to 5A. Now you're having to compete in region against Rock Hill, Fort Mill, Clover, etc...and oh btw Boulware went to Northwestern. Give him those four years at Northwestern with the athletes they have there and watch out. The biggest problem with these kind of coaching jobs is you have to find someone with a big enough ego who believes they can do better than back to back state champions.....in a higher classification. Don't get me wrong ILHS would be an awesome job in an awesome community / location. BUT hats off to the coach who follows the guy who brought ILHS their first state championship in.......anything!!!!! Tough act to follow.
  20. Reposting so this is easier to read. Indian Land High School is looking for a head wrestling coach.
