Herrmann is a STUD ....but did you see this result AKIN?

130 - Matt Kibblehouse (Delaware) over Nick Herrmann (Texas) OT 4-2

Texas had a tough 117 and 124(Herrmann).  Our 117 was injured so we had a backup 108 at 117.  Texas's coach offered to bump up rather than wrestle a 108 and because we had a good 130.  Kibblehouse was a 125 State champ this year and Herrman is ranked at 125.  It was a good match and Matts style slowed Herrmann down.  No huge size difference or anything, just a matchup of two good wrestlers!  Matt lost one other match in the tournament and it was a rare time that he got caught in a 5 pointed early on and had to wrestle from a 5-0 deficit.  Did not happen.  Props to Texas and their wrestler for seeking out the best comptetion.  The kid would have pinned out 124 and probably been OW had he not bumped up.  Wish they did not penalize him for that.

Ps.  Good meeting you Drooke!  Was a busy few days and wish I had more time to relax and talk with ya!

With Camp already decided on playing football in college, do you think he will even wrestle in Fargo?  I would assume that he bulks up some for football and in late July he would be preparing for that season.  Think he would maybe go 215 in fargo if he even goes?

I agree with giving credit for first points scored to a wrestler receiving a FF.  if you are up by 6, scored more first points and have a kid wrestling last who very well could get a pinned, a coach with no spine may FF the last match to ensure a win via criteria.  Personally, I would rather lose and let the kid wrestle, but not all coaches would do that.

Not to spam Delaware, but off the top of my head De should have the follwoing guys at the D1 level next year:

VT - Diaz, Garnett
NC State - Dolan
Bloomsburg - Boylan
Iowa - Telford
Kent St - Cathell
Okie State - Meade
Clarion - Alex Thomas
lehigh - Mcdonald(although there are rumors of a d2 transfer)
Lockhaven(d1?) - Chris Drummond
Navy - rebertus
Rider - Mike Miller
VMI(think its d1) - Wendell Cannon

Schenk will be somewhere as well.  

Also had a d2 national champ in Abbott last year and D3 AA in Mike Magaha (limestone)this year.  

Not too bad for a little state.  Good class coming up next year with Combs, I Meade, M. Mauk, Donaldson(3rd beast), Pendergast(2nd beast), Broomall, J. Snook and a few others all being seniors and all with the potential to end up D1.

I would agree with those.

Also I would throw Delaware in there as a possible improved state
We have made great strides the past 5 years with the hard work of the DWA, the group that runs the Beast and all of our summer programs.  We are sending more and more kids to the next level each yr.  We may never be a top 10 state because of our size with less than 45 high school teams in the state, but we are on the rise each year.

Good article.  I had mentioned on themat last week that from what I was told, Mizzou and Okie State are his top 2, but obviously he has some other very good options.

Welcome to the site Concord.
Thanks Drooke.  I actually saw on themat that Jason B had replied to the interview with Martin from Flo on here, so I figured I'd give it a shot.  

As for this move, my guess is that Sunderland is happy to be coaching the sport that he cares about and not having all the pressure of a d1 program.  It can only be good for Manheim's program.

High School & Lower / Sunderland Hired at Manheim Central
« on: August 12, 2009, 02:43:14 PM »

Pennsylvania State University is a fairly popular destination with many of the citizens of the Borough of Manheim.

Pick any Fall Saturday and you can find Manheim residents strolling up and down College Avenue, on their way to/from the latest football victory by the Nittany Lions.

And then there are Manheim's sons and daughters who journey up U.S. 322 to continue their education.

That the Manheim-State College pipeline is not a one-way thoroughfare became apparent Tuesday night as a notable member of the Penn State family became a Baron.

The Manheim Central School Board Tuesday night approved the hiring of former Penn State wrestling coach Troy Sunderland to lead Manheim's high school wrestling program.

Sunderland, who stepped down in April after leading the Nittany Lion program for 11 years, replaces Shane Mack, who resigned to accept a teaching position in the Derry Township School District.

A 1993 Penn State grad, Sunderland coached the Lions to a 115-90-2 dual meet record and directed four top-10 finishes at the NCAA Division I championships.

The Lions' best team finish at Nationals under Sunderland came in 2008 when they placed third overall.

In his 11 years as the head coach Sunderland had three individual NCAA champions, 25 All-Americans — including a pair of L-L alums, two-time NCAA runner-up Aaron Anspach (Columbia) and NCAA runner-up Pat Cummins (Warwick) — and seven Big-10 champions.

Named the 1999 "Rookie Coach of the Year" by Amateur Wrestling News, Sunderland was also recognized as the 2003 Big-10 Coach of the Year.

A two-time PIAA champion at Mt. Union High School, the McVeytown native was a three-time All-American, and two-time NCAA runner-up for Penn State, winning 100 individual matches.

He was the Outstanding Wrestler of the 1993 Big-10 Championships, winning the 150-pound title, and also won the Eastern Wrestling League 150-pound title in 1992, Penn State's last year affiliated with the EWL.

He led the Lions to a second-place finish at the 1993 NCAA tournament — PSU's highest-ever — as a senior and returned to State College that Fall as an assistant to his college coach, John Fritz.

After three years, Sunderland took a similar position at the United States Naval Academy, returning to "Happy Valley" as Fritz's replacement in 1998.

Sunderland, whose wife JoAnn was hired by the district as the In-School Suspension Monitor at the high school, was on vacation Tuesday and was unavailable for comment.
