Army's results from Journeyman Classic

Postby TCOIX » Sun Nov 12, 2017 5:49 pm

Interesting way to run this tourney. They grouped each weight class by ability, so that all wrestlers were competing against others of comparable ability. After the groupings, they competed in a round robin type format - as time would allow. In several brackets, they had "placement matches" at the end - after everyone had wrestled 3 guys in their respective groups. As you might suspect, OKST and Lehigh had a lot of guys in the "A brackets".

If a wrestler won a bunch of wins by tech, fall, or major, they probably could have competed in a higher bracket.

Knox Fuller is going to be a great starter for the next four seasons assuming good health. He is out of the Chattanooga area in Tennessee and one of the better wrestlers to come out of the state in a few years. Expect good things from him.

Coaches also try to get their wrestlers into certain pools for the matchups. For instance, Lehigh tends to want to avoid rematches and too many matches against opponents their wrestlers will see during the year. The 125A bracket had three EIWA starters from teams Lehigh will meet and Piccininni from Okie State; they didn't want Darian Cruz wrestling Piccininni again so soon or meeting three guys he'll see again in duals, so he was in the B pool.
