Wrestlers, Coaches, & Parents:                                   May 21, 2022

Now that we are back to wrestling, I have returned as keeper of the records. Since my days coaching at Cardigan Mt. School (1980-98) and Hyde School – Maine (1998-08), I have loved the sport as much as I have helped keep alive its memories through pictures, records, and articles.

In year 54, wrestling is still my passion, currently serving as head official for RMN National Events which hosts several large youth wrestling tournaments across the country.

During the day, I am a high school counselor for social-emotional learning and, in the new evenings, I write a monthly column for WIN Magazine featuring youth wrestlers and coaches. (See new page “Wrestler & Coach Features” with links to these features.) If you know of a good subject for an upcoming story, email me with the individual, team, and contact information.

Although I have been away from New England since 2008, I remain committed to memorializing the efforts of past and present N.E. prep wrestlers and teams. It was especially exciting to begin the new women’s record books, highlighted by Andover’s national team championship and ten N.E. individual champions in 2022.

On the page results, you will see the 2022 results in PDF and via link. Check out the master records for the Class A’s, EIL, ISL, and WNEISWA as well as the New England & National Prep Championships. Please contact me with updates and additions to the records or just to share your stories.

The 2020 tournament results, boys and girls, have been added to the ongoing record collections on the pages for the leagues, NEISWA, and National Preps. If you have any updates – corrections or missing info – please email Bill at bxb4barron@gmail.com.

Unfortunately, the online tournament records do not list award winners (Most Pins Least Time, Outstanding Wrestlers, etc.). If you know any of these names (with team and weight), please help us keep the record books as complete as possible.

If you want copies of the brackets, you can download them from the page (recent event links go directly to the FloWrestling site).

If you have a wrestler or coach whose story merits a feature article, send me contact info. Those selected will be published in my monthly WIN Magazine column.

Thank you, Bill X. Barron – Coach
