Re: state wrestling duals

I hate the PIAA team tournament format. It is a contrived championship in order for the PIAA to get more money.

Holy Cheese and Crackers!

Re: state wrestling duals

Well, as one that wrestled, I hated the WPIAL team tournament. In fact, my senior year, we voted to not wrestle in it and we were seeded #1. The school board told us if we wanted to wrestle in the individual tournament (which is what wrestling is) we had to go to the WPIAL's. The best way to get to Hershey is to earn the individual ride.

Re: state wrestling duals

I also think the WPIAL team tournaments are enough it gives kids good competition. As far as team tournaments many schools are not the class they need to be in. We had just enough to make a full line up. But we had teams in our class that were 2 and 3 deep, and a very much larger enrollment. A local larger school, was up a class 1 year, if another team in the area was going to be stacked the next year, the other team got dropped back down and they still had a large enrollment.

Re: state wrestling duals

I also wrestled and would have loved this chance to do this when I wrestled there wasn't any dual tourneys out there.if its all about the individual why keep a team score at al? why keep score at individual tourneys because it is also a team effort......don't get upset JMHO

I can't agree more. Many who have never wrestled think of wrestling as an individual sport. Those who have wrestled know that without their teammates pushing them to get better, they would not be nearly as good as they may be. Many of the teammates that do the pushing never get mat time.

When I wrestled, we had a back-up heavyweight that could have won the district championship and possibly a regional championship but never got a chance to wrestle varsity because our starter was stellar. Our starter would not have been near as good without him. The dual tournaments is a good way to give these folks a chance to win as well despite not setting foot on the mat.
