Deundre Garner, freshman, also earned a medal. Deundre finished in 6th place at 182 pounds. Other competing Huskies were Brian Holloway, Drew Matticks, and Ethan Lemons. Congratulations to all!

Writing on the wall: More names are etched in stone
OPRF Wrestling Wall of Fame page is updated after 2013-2014 season · 03/15/2013



If you haven't seen it, the OPRF Wrestling Wall of Fame page is worth a look. It archives all sorts of statistics and achievements. It is updated through 2013-2014, so you can view results such as state qualifiers and 30-win seasons. The webpage is enhanced with 40- and 50-win categories, as well.

Noteworty | Davonte Mahomes has cemented his Century Club record (170-19), and two have now joined him: juniors Matthew Rundell and Larry Early. Look for them to pile on many more wins in their 2014-15 senior campaign. The Takedown and Pin King titles have been tabulated: Davonte Mahomes and Matthew Rundell, respectively. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to enjoy a succinct set of Huskie History: Record Holders.

Statistics are set | Also tabulated are the final 2013-2014 IHSA Statistics. I kindly thank all who helped take (and make) these statistics. I especially want to thank the team statistician, Savannah. Savannah's lethal combination of pure Huskie Heart and a mentally tough Huskie Head equate to a (state championship) winning team. Exquisite, as always.



State of the state: Two more championships this weekend
IKWF and Frosh-Soph brackets end Saturday and Sunday, respectively · 02/14/2014


Two weekends after the IHSA Dual Team Finals is still an exciting time for wrestling fans and many families. This weekend marks the end to to other seasons: the IKWF campaign and the hyper-quick Freshman-Sophomore State Championships. The eligibility requirements for the second tournament are that you must be a freshman or sophomore (as the name suggests), and you must NOT be an IHSA Individual State qualifier in 2014. Place at regionals and sectionals, and you head to Springfield, IL, this weekend.

Kids first | The IKWF State Championships take place on Friday and Saturday, March 14-15, at BMO Harris Bank Center in Rockford. The Novice and Senior divisions will each hold their 24-wrestler brackets to determine IKWF's best at each of 17 (Novice) or 18 (Senior) weight classes.

Spring-ing ahead | Springfield, IL, hosts the Freshman-Sophomore State Championships (not affiliated with IHSA). The tournament begins on Saturday, March 15, and concludes on Sunday, March 16. Each bracket will hold 32 wrestlers.

Being a Huskie in China
I am happy to be in Qingdao, Shandong, China, but I am unable to experience one of my most treasured gifts -- being there in the flesh to witness what I call "The Orange and Blue Wrecking Crew." I need your help for pictures, results (matchups, dual scores!), newsworthy items, video finds, anecdotes -- whatever you can send. Please consider spending a few seconds or minutes of your day to email me information. Yes, somebody else may send me the same info, but it's better that I receive two notices than zero.

In relentless pursuit and Huskie pride!
