MONDAY MORNING UPDATE: We've wrapped up a very busy few weeks on here from the coverage, previews, and updates of Sectionals, then Districts, and then into the Regions (and I thank you again for the site donations, it's greatly appreciated), but now... IT'S STATES WEEK!

448 wrestlers, 94 of them (21%) from the Shore Conference, head to Atlantic City as 112 medals & 14 State Championships are up for grabs. With the full girls tournament back being competed alongside the boys, and that darn boat show, it should be a packed few days on the boardwalk. 

I'll spend the next couple of days prepping this place with notes, and all the links to keep up to date, and where to watch, for the State Tournament. As is the usual around here, I do not update during the State Tournament. I like to head down there and just be a fan and watch and enjoy. No laptop, no iPad, no phone. Just hiding somewhere in the upper level, putting down pretzels and crab fries, and watching the best State Tournament in the country (so stop trying to change it!). After that: Final updates to the team pages. Some polls. Then Awards Week!  

Back Later.
