March 1, 2012 Wrestling Blog Updates

Welcome!      We have just finished a great  season of wrestling with the championships in a brand new home! I’m already working on next years State Championships and with that comes a new method of communication between our office and the member schools. When our Boss first told us to create a Blog, I panicked. I’m not a writer. But here we go with my first post! When I was teaching, I had to explain to my students the Kentucky Department of Educations terms: Novice, Apprentice, Proficient and Distinguished. I told my students that they should think in terms of an imaginary trip and how to get from here to the Beach. A “Novice” writer would get you lost. An “Apprentice” writer will get you there, but it will take days and you will hate the trip. A “Proficient” writer will be like MapQuest, they will get you there in the shortest time possible. But a “Distinguished” writer will not only get you there, but you will enjoy the journey. Unlike my Boss, I’m not a distinguished writer, my goal will be to reach “proficient” as often as possible.      Before the first round was over on Friday, I had begun a list of things that needed some attention, along with a long list of “you know what you need to do” suggestions. I believe we can incorporate many of those suggestions and improve on what I felt was a great tournament.       I will be in touch through out the year.Remember to check this blog for more Wrestling Notes as the year unfolds!
