RESULTS, RESULTS, RESULTS

At the first Freestyle / Greco Tournament of the year the Wantagh Team had four wrestlers take the trip to Section 11 and wrestle in the 2nd annual Jeff Blatnick Wrestling Memorial  tournament in Southhampton. Jeff Blatnick was a College National Champion and a 1984 Greco Olympic Champion from the Albany, New York area. Leading the charge was Justin Vines and Jonathan Loew who each went undefeated in both styles with a record of 4-0 each. The other two wrestlers who did very well were Larry Baker earning a pair of second place finishes at 220 pounds and Pat Smith who finished second in Greco Roman and first in Freestyle. The next tournament is being held April 19, 2014 at Clarhe HS. This is the Section 8 Qualifier for Nassau County and earns you a trip to the States being held in Binghamton, NY May 9, and May 10th.

GO WARRIORS….

NEW FILA FREESTYLE AND GRECO RULES IN EFFECT FOR 2014

THE WANTAGH WRESTLING TEAM WILL BE COMPETITING IN SOUTHHAMPTON IN SUFFOLK COUNTY THIS SATURDAY. PLEASE SPEAK TO THE COACHES IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND.

RULES:
Article 24 – Duration of the Bout
For schoolboys and cadets: two periods of 2 minutes with a 30-second break.
For Juniors and Seniors: two periods of 3 minutes with a 30-second break.
For all the competitions, the timing displayed on the scoreboards will start from 0 to 3 minutes (from 0 to 2 minutes for schoolboys and cadets).

The winner is declared by the addition of the points in both periods at the end of the regular time. Evident technical superiority of 8 points for Greco Roman wrestling and 10 points for Men’s and Women’s Freestyle wrestling automatically leads to victory and to the end of the bout.

The fall stops automatically the match whatever the period.

Men’s and Women’s Freestyle wrestling: The duration of a period is 3 minutes. If, after 2 minutes in the first period, no wrestler has scored then the referee must obligatorily designate the passive wrestler.

Greco-Roman wrestling: The duration of a period is 3 minutes. In the case where a bout ends by 0-0, the victory goes to the wrestler who was deemed the most active last.

Article 30 – Interrupting and Continuing the Bout

When the wrestling has been stopped in standing or “par terre” position, it will recommence standing. Wrestling must be stopped and resumed at the centre of the mat in the standing position if:

- One foot entirely touches the protection area.

- The wrestlers in a hold go into the red zone with three or four feet without executing the hold and stay there.

- If the bottom wrestler’s head entirely touches the protection zone.

In all illegal actions such as fleeing the hold, fleeing the mat, faults committed by the attacking wrestler or injuries in “par terre” wrestling, the bout shall continue in “par terre” position.

In all illegal actions such as fleeing the hold, fleeing the mat, faults or injuries in standing position, the bout shall continue in standing position.

To save attacking wrestler, if he/she lifts his/her opponent from the ground during “par terre” wrestling and the attacked wrestler prevents the attack through an illegal action, the referee will penalize the wrestler at fault by caution 1 or 2 point and bout will continue in “par terre”.

If an attacked wrestler takes an illegal action in the “par terre” position, he will receive a caution and 1 or 2 points will be attributed to his opponent. The bout resumes in “par terre” position, without considering if the wrestler has succeeded or not in his hold.

When a challenge is requested by a coach, the mat chairman interrupts the bout when the action is back to neutral. 

Article 31 – Types of Victories

A bout may be won:

- by “fall”

- by injury, withdrawal, default, disqualification of the opponent

- by technical superiority

- by points (winning by 1 point more at minimum after addition of the two periods)

In case of tie by points, the winner will be declared by successively considering the highest value of holds, the least amount of cautions and the last technical point(s) scored (see layout below).

Example : Red Blue Comment Result
1 1 1 1 1 1 Last technical point scored by the blue wrestler. Blue winner
1 2 1 1 1 Last technical point scored by the blue wrestler. The red wrestler scored a 2-point hold. Red winner
0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 Last technical point scored by the red wrestler, but he has two cautions and the blue wrestler has only one. Blue winner
1 1 1 1 2 0 The blue wrestler scored a 2-point hold which is the highest value hold Blue winner
1 1 1 0 1 2 0 The red wrestler scored the last technical point; but the blue wrestler scored a 2-point hold. Each of the wrestlers has one caution. Blue winner
1 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 Each of the wrestlers has two cautions. The blue wrestlers scored the last technical point. Blue winner

CHAPTER 6 – POINTS FOR ACTIONS AND HOLDS

Article 36 – Evaluation of the Importance of the Action or Hold

In order to encourage risk-taking during bouts, when a wrestler tries unsuccessfully to execute a hold and finds himself underneath in a “par terre” position without a move by his opponent, the wrestler above will not be awarded a technical point and both wrestlers will be brought back to their feet immediately. However, if, during a hold, the defending wrestler executes a counterattack and is able to bring his opponent to the ground, he will be awarded the point(s) that correspond to the action.

If the attacking wrestler executes a hold on his own bridge, holds this position for a certain amount of time, and then completes his action by placing his opponent in the bridge position as well, he will not be penalised. Only the attacking wrestler will be awarded the points, as he will have completed the action in a hold that involved risks. However, if the offensive wrestler is blocked under control in the bridge position or by a counteraction by his opponent, it is clear that points will be awarded to the latter wrestler.

Furthermore, the wrestler on whom a hold was initiated may only be awarded points if, by his own action, he has:

a) Brought the offensive wrestler to the ground.

b) Conducted the action on a continuous basis.

c) Succeeded in controlling the offensive wrestler by blocking him in a bridge position, that is, in a position considered completed.

d) The referee must wait for the end of each situation prior to awarding the point values earned by each wrestler.

e) In cases where the wrestlers’ actions lead them to change from one position to another, the points for all the actions are awarded according to their value.

f) The instantaneous fall, “both shoulders of the wrestler touching simultaneously and instantaneously the mat”, is not considered as a fall (totally controlled by the opponent) (article 44). If the wrestler falls instantly from a standing position following a move by his opponent, the attacker receives four points provided he demonstrates control.

If the wrestler falls instantly during his own move, his opponent receives one point. When wrestling in the “par terre” position when the wrestler is in the situation of instant fall, his opponent receives one point.

g) Rolling from one shoulder to the other using the elbows in the bridge position, and vice-versa, is considered to be only one action.

h) A hold must not be considered to be a new action until the competitors return to the initial position.

i) The referee will indicate the points. If the judge agrees, he will raise the bat bearing the colour and value in question (1, 2, 4 or 5 points). In the event of any disagreement between the referee and the judge, the mat chairman must make a decision in favour of one or the other of the wrestlers; he is not allowed to give a different opinion, except if he calls for a consultation and obtains majority.

j) In the event of a fall that occurs at the end of regulation time, only the sound of the gong (and not the referee’s whistle) is valid.

k) At the end of a period, any hold is valid if it was completed before the gong sounded. In no event may a hold finished after the sound of the gong be counted.

Article 37 – Danger Position

A wrestler shall be considered in the ‘danger position’ when the line of his back (or the line of his shoulders) vertically or in parallel with the mat, forms an angle of less than 90 degrees to the said mat and when he resists with the upper part of his body to avoid a ‘fall’. (See definition of ‘fall’). The danger position occurs when:

- The defending wrestler assumes the bridge position to avoid being pinned.

- The defending wrestler, with his back toward the mat, supports himself on one or both elbows to avoid having his shoulders forced onto the mat.

- The wrestler has one shoulder in contact with the mat and at the same time exceeds the 90 degree vertical line with the other shoulder (acute angle).

- The wrestler finds himself in the ‘instantaneous fall’ position, that is, when he is on both shoulders for less than one second.

- The wrestler rolls on his shoulders.

The ‘danger position’ no longer exists when the wrestler exceeds the 90-degree vertical line with his chest and stomach facing the mat.

If the mat and the competitor’s back form a 90-degree angle only, this cannot yet be considered a ‘danger position’ (the neutral point).

Article 39 – Grand Amplitude Throw

Any action or hold by a wrestler in the standing position that causes his opponent to lose all contact with the ground, controls him, makes him describe a broadly sweeping curve in the air, and brings him to the ground in a direct and immediate danger position shall be considered a “Grand Amplitude” throw.

In the “par terre” position, any complete lift from the ground executed by the attacking wrestler, whether the attacked wrestler lands in neutral position (4 points in Greco Roman, 2 points in Freestyle) or in a danger position (5 points in Greco Roman and 4 points in Freestyle), is also considered a grand amplitude throw.

NB: If the wrestler executing a grand amplitude hold himself touches the mat with both shoulders, he receives 4 or 5 points and his opponent receives 1 point, due to the instantaneous fall in the execution of the throw.

Article 40 – Values assigned to the Actions and Holds

1 point

- To the wrestler who applies a correct hold while standing on the mat or in the “par terre” position with three points of contact but who does not secure control by passing behind.

- To the wrestler who blocks his opponent on one or two outstretched arms, his back facing the mat.

- To the wrestler who is prevented from completing a hold because his opponent is maintaining an irregular hold, but who finally succeeds in completing the hold.

- To the attacking wrestler whose opponent flees the hold, the mat, refuses to start, commits illegal actions or acts of brutality.

- To the wrestler whose opponent goes in the protection zone with one entire foot (in standing position).

- All the stops of bout by injury without bleeding or any visible injury are penalised by 1 point to the opponent.

- To the wrestler whose opponent requested a challenge if initial decision is confirmed.

- To the opponent of a wrestler designated as passive who fails to score points during a 30 second activity period in Freestyle wrestling.

- To the wrestler whose opponent, either top or bottom wrestler, refuses correct “par terre” starting position after a first friendly warning.

- To the defending wrestler if the attacking wrestler goes into the instantaneous fall position or rolls across his shoulders in executing a hold.

- Reversal (counter attack by dominated wrestler in par terre position and passing behind)

2 points

- To the wrestler who overcomes and then controls his opponent by passing behind (three points of contact: two arms and one knee or two knees and one arm or head).

- To the wrestler who brings his opponent to the ground and passes behind him, and while in this position holding him down with control (three points of contact: two arms and one knee or two knees and one arm or the head).

- To the wrestler who applies a correct hold while wrestling in the “par terre” position and places his opponent in a position of danger or in an instantaneous fall position.

- To the attacking wrestle

whose opponent rolls onto his shoulders.

- To the attacking wrestler whose opponent flees the hold out-of-bounds and lands in a position of danger.

To the attacking wrestler whose opponent commits an illegal hold that hinders the execution of an engaged hold or a fall

- To the wrestler who blocks his opponent in the execution of a hold from the standing position, in a position of danger.

- To the wrestler who executes a grand amplitude hold and secures control, but does not place the opponent in a direct and immediate danger position in Freestyle wrestling.

4 points

- To the Greco-Roman wrestler performing a hold in a standing position, which brings his opponent into a danger position by direct projection over a short amplitude.

- To the Freestyle wrestler who brings his opponent into a danger position by direct projection and demonstrates control. Short amplitude is not required in Freestyle.

- For any hold executed by raising a wrestler from the ground, over a short amplitude, even if one or both of the attacking wrestler’s knees are on the ground.

- To the Greco-Roman wrestler who executes a grand amplitude hold which does not place the opponent in a direct and immediate danger position.

If, in performing a hold, the defending wrestler maintains contact with the mat with one of his hands, but is immediately placed in a danger position, the attacking wrestler will receive 4 points.

5 points (in Greco Roman Style)

- All grand amplitude throws executed in a standing position which bring the defending wrestler to a direct and immediate danger position.

- The hold executed by a wrestler in the “par terre” position who completely lifts his opponent off the ground with the execution of a high amplitude throw which projects the opponent into a direct and immediate danger position

 

2014 STATES AND RESULTS……KYLE QUINN LIFTING SCHEDULE AND DATES FOR CLUB ADDED

LIFTING WILL BE STARTED RIGHT AWAY ON WEDNESDAY MARCH 5, 2014, THURSDAY AND MONDAYS. WE START AT 2:30 P.M. THE MIDDLE SCHOOL KIDS CAN ARRIVE AFTER CLASSES.

THE WANTAGH WRESTLING CLUB REGISTRATION AND SIGN UP ON FIRST DATE. COST $150.00 WE WILL TAKE EXPERIENCED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WRESTLERS.
WE START MONDAY, MARCH 10, 13, 17, 20, 24, 27, 31, APRIL 3, 7, 10, 14, 17, 21, 24, 28, MAY 1, 5, 8, 12, 15, 19, 22, 29, JUNE 2 AND JUNE 5TH.

TIMES: 7:00 P.M. TO 8:30 P.M.  

The 2014 States are complete. Kyle Quinn finished second in New YorkState following his first place finish last year. Kyle is going to be remembered as one of the best wrestlers with his accomplishments at Wantagh when it is all said and done. Knowing how hard he wants to win, he will push himself very hard to get onto the top of the podium next year. As far as the rest of our kids, Matt Langan was one match short of placing as well as Jonathan Loew. Both lost very close matches to advance to the medal rounds. Nick Vines wrestled a very tough tournament and competed to the end.

The High School Nationals are at the end of March in Virginia Beach. Most of the seniors can attend as well as the Middle School Wrestlers. Please see me for further details and the registration process. The Freestyle and Greco seasons are also starting. This is a great way to wrestle and really learn the sport. There are many tournaments. I have a list of different competitions. This is an exciting way of scoring as opposed to the HS scoring system. We will be learning these techniques in the room. You have to show up to learn these tricks.

The Wantagh Wrestling Club will be having registration shortly. The season never ends. We will be having our room open with our coaching staff. We strongly suggest that you take advantage and show up. Private lessons are available. P.J. Gillespie is our guy. Play other sports but there is no excuse not to get on the mat two days per week. Our lifting program is also starting immediately. We want to get stronger. See Coach Gillespie and Jones.

Lastly: We are interested in attending the Edinboro Wrestling Camp in PA for two weeks scheduled for June 29 thru July 11, 2014. I would like to know who wants to attend. I have some ideas to fund raise. I will be setting up transportation to and from the camp. This is open to all middle school and high school aged wrestlers. I need to know who wants to attend and make plans as soon as possible to get a team discount.

TEAM

WHAT MAKES A WIN ??  IT IS TEAMWORK. IT IS GOING INTO PRACTICE EVERY DAY AND PUSHING YOURSELF AND YOUR TEAMATE THE BEST YOU CAN SO YOU BOTH IMPROVE. THE BEST WRESTLER HAS HIS PARTNERS TO MAKE HIM BETTER. THAT MEANS EACH KID ON THE TEAM SHOWING UP FOR RUNS, SATURDAY MORNING PRACTICES, ETC. THE JV WRESTLER IS SO IMPORTANT AS WELL AS THE STAR. WE ARE DEPENDENT ON EACH OTHER.

WHEN LOOKING AT HOW WE WON THE CHAMPIONSHIPS IT HELPS TO WIN OUR MATCHES FIRST. A PIN IS SIX POINTS. A TECH FALL IS FIVE. A MAJOR DECISION IS FOUR POINTS AND A WIN IS THREE. WHAT IS OVERLOOKED IS HOW WE LOSE. WE NEVER WANT TO GET PINNED. GIVING UP A DECISION IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN GETTING UP THE BIG LOSS. IN SOME OF THESE HUGE MATCHES VS THE OTHER GREAT WRESTLERS NOT GIVING IN WITH A BIG LOSS SAVED OUR TEAM AND HELPED US WIN. SO THE LITTLE THINGS IN A MATCH BECOME HUGE. A LOSS CAN BECOME A WIN. LOOK AT THE LAST MATCH. A FEW PINS AND WE LOSE.   

GREAT JOB WANTAGH..

 

WANTAGH WINS THIRD STRAIGHT DUAL MEET CHAMPIONSHIP

2014-Wantagh-DMCThe Wantagh Warriors became the first non-seeded team in Nassau County history to win the Dual Meet Playoffs after defeating Calhoun, Seaford, Locust Valley, Massapequa and MacArthur HS. Several of the teams could have one but we had the luck of the Irish smiling down. This was the third straight year the team won and this was considered a re-building year by many outsiders who were non-believers. The coaches, wrestlers, parents and fans stood side by side and cheered every kid win or lose. What a job by our great, great coaching staff. I want to thank Paul Gillespie, Reggie Jones, Ray Hanley Sr., Ray Hanley Jr and P.J. Gillespie. Alexa Barbato gets a big shout out for making my life easy in keeping the scorebook. With the wins the team record stands at 12-3 for the year and runs our three year record to 53-3. Photos of the Championship match are for sale by Photo Joe at his cell 347-386-5653. 

I am arranging several fundraising ides for a summer camp in Edinboro PA for two weeks in the summer for the team. I need to know who wants to attend. I will get the dates and arrange transportation. The idea is to raise as much money as possible and attend camp for free. Let me know ASAP. Would love to see the entire team attend.
