FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2nd


UPDATE - 2:30pm: I think my email was hacked. Sorry, I can't hook you up with any real state or discounted pharmaceuticals. Changed my password, so we should be good. Also discovered about a dozen emails I never saw. I'll get to those. Better late than never... except for the one about the tourney that happened 2 weeks ago. Oops!

******

Greetings...

I've heard back from over half the teams so far, and already have 12 previews typed up and ready to go. We'll start rolling them out tomorrow and continue to add more every day until opening night Friday, December 16th. Ya know... stretch things out a bit because it drives up site traffic! Although I'm sure I'll take one day off before then, because that's just what I do.

And oh yeah... in the market for a Christmas tree, grave blanket, or wreath? Shop Sunset Farms! Free plug, BOOM!

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 29th

One of the biggest comments/complaints over the last couple of years has been about the matches wanted / tournament openings on the top of the page. Apparently they become a pain when we're doing live updates to scroll past, especially on mobile devices. So, I've moved the listings to their own page which will now be found at the top of the Site Features section over there on the left. I aim to please.

As you can see, the team pages are all set up and ready to go for the 2017 season. Everything from last season has been moved to the 2016 archives. Links to this year's schedules are now up on each team's schedule & results page.

Speaking of the schedules, how about this one? Opening night... Friday, December 16th: Brick Memorial at Southern Regional!!!  Say what??? Can't ask for a better way to start off the year, and with everyone else kicking off their seasons the next day, there's no reason not to pack the house in Manahawkin that night. So let's do just that!

Any Ohio State fans on here? Yeah, that was NOT a 1st Down. Just sayin...

Almost time to get into the team previews. I'll send the emails out this week. Just over 2 weeks until Opening Night!

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25th

Ya know, back in my day, TODAY would be the first day of practices. Of course, back then, we had 13 weight classes (which we STILL should have), no awesome websites, and we actually wrestled even if the forecast called for 2 inches of snow. Anyway...

Congratulations go out to TR East's AJ Meyers who has committed to attend and wrestle at Columbia University next season. Added him to the COLLEGE COMMITMENTS list.

Beginning to prep the team pages for the season previews. I'll be hitting coaches up for potential lineups/team rosters/weights, assistants, team goals, etc. sometime next week, and get started from there. It's almost time. Patience grasshoppers. But I feel you... I'm ready to get this season going.

In the meantime, best of luck to the 10 Shore Conference Football teams that will be competing for State Championships next weekend. Bring it home! And remember, win or lose, you could probably still give Rutgers a game. TWO, TAKEDOWN!




New Coaches For 2017

Barnegat: Ken MacIver, who coached the previous seven seasons at Dumont, takes over for Ken Karp. MacIver has also been a head coach at Old Tappan, Pascack Hills, and Bogota.

Brick Memorial: Former Mustang standout Mike Kiley becomes the 5th head coach in BM history, taking over for Mike Denver. Kiley, a 4-year starter for Memorial, graduated in 2009 and then would go on to wrestle collegiately at TCNJ.

Donovan Catholic: Former Griffin grappler, Steve Glawson, takes over at his old stomping grounds where he was a 3-time D24 medal winner.

Freehold Twp: Kim Thwaits, previously an assistant at Freehold Boro, has taken over for Mike Gaeta. Gaeta, who guided the Patriots over the last three years, will remain on staff as an assistant.

Jackson Memorial: Former head coach Doug Withstandley takes the reins back over from Aaron Gottesman. Withstandley, who was an assistant for Gottesman the last five seasons, had a very successful run as the head coach in his first stint from 2008-2011, winning 2 Group 4 Titles, 2 Sectional Titles, 3 District Titles, and 4 Division Titles. His teams also finished in the Top 10 in NJ in each of his four years. Gottesman will remain on staff as an assistant.

Keyport: Steve Bower has stepped down after three seasons for The Port. Taking over will be former head coach Al Smith who had a previous run of 18 years as head coach of the Raiders, making his debut in 1993-1994.

Manchester: Bill Meaney, who wrestled for the Hawks from 2004-2007, and had been serving as an assistant coach for the program, will be the head coach in 2016-2017. Meaney, an All-American at Elizabethtown in college, takes over for Tom Scheffler, who served as head coach the previous nine seasons.

Marlboro: One of the most decorated wrestlers in Marlboro history returns home to take over the head coaching position, previously held by William Werntz for the last 14 seasons. Frankel, a 2-time state placer, collected 110 wins for the Mustangs from 2005-2008. Collegiately, he earned All-American honors in 2012 wrestling at Delaware Valley University, and was named a Scholar All-American in 2013.

Middletown South: An assistant for the Eagles in 2016, Anton Atterbury is the new head coach for South. After a successful high school career where he was a State medal winner for Mt. Olive, Atterbury found continued success on the mats, winning a Prep National Title at Blair in 1993, and earning All-American honors twice while wrestling at TCNJ.

Monmouth Regional: Robert Micheliche, a 2005 graduate of TR South who would go on to wrestle collegiately at TCNJ, takes over for Shawn Brown. Micheliche is no stranger to the coaching ranks in the Shore since graduating from TCNJ, having assistant jobs at Holmdel and TR North, previously.
