===========================================================

I do not know why Ben Harvey did not wrestle.

I am wondering if Will Lucie's work at 149 will prompt Fuller to go down to 141. I believe that Fuller certified at 141. We will see. Vegas up next.

(USMAPS made a good showing at the NYS collegiate tourney yesterday. Strong crowd at USMAPS this year).

Not a good showing by Army wrestlers. Only one title. Lost more bouts than they won. Potential winners - Harvey at 174 and Wedholm at 184 - did not wrestle. Kelly (probable starter) has not wrestled yet due to an injury. Harry at 149 off to a very slow start. There will probably be at least 5 freshmen and sophomores starters this year- young team. At least 3 top quality wrestlers at the prep school. Army has some very good wrestlers with real potential but no real "hammer". With their great coaching they will improve but I think they are not as strong as last year.

All good points. I did not see them replacing Logan, Parsons, Imonode and Trevor Smith with as many points as we had at those weight classes last year. (Whoever emerges at 184 between Stewart and Wedholm will be close to where Imonode was).

Could see as many as 8 fr/sophomore starters: Chalifoux, Peters, Fuller (or Harry - JR), Lucie (or Kelley - SR), Weiland, Mendel (SR), Harvey, Stewart (or Wedholm - SR), Caywood (JR) and Heald.

No guarantees at this stage, but a lot of them seem to be about where Brian Harvey or Paul Hancock were at this stage of their respective careers.

Several Observations.
1. We lost 4 starters-141-157-184-285. All of the replacements, with the possible exception of 184, are just not as good- Yet- as the graduated starters. I do not see a wrestler on the roster at 141 or 157 being nearly as good in the next 2 years as Logan and Parsons.
2. Kelly at 149 is hurt and Harry at 141 has lost 7 of his last 8 bouts all to unranked opponents.
3. Potential does not always work-out and is in some ways a curse. Potential definitely does not win matches now. However, I believe that 3-4 of our young wrestlers will eventually qualify for the National Tournament in their Junior or Senior years.
4. We have at least 3-4 high quality wrestlers in the Prep School with an excellent coach. Two or more of them could be starters next year. We have some excellent commits coming in next year either directly or to the Prep School.
5. No detailed proof, but I have observed that many seniors at West Point are not significantly better than they were as Juniors. I think that the many significant events during the last year (Branch Selections, First Assignments, marriage, difficult academics, numerous graduation activities, etc) are very distracting.
6. I believe that we have an excellent Head Coach who has improved our program significantly and will continue to recruit and train winning wrestlers.
