WHAT!?!?!?! if this is true, thats so pathetic. Were is the coach? I doubt any coach with his head on straight would let a kid wrestle all the way up to regionals with out being certified. I really hope this post is not true.

I hope it's not true. CPS could do more to help city coaches with this process.

weight

It is true. He was certified at 174lbs. I just can't believe it. Alex could have placed in the state.

How do you certify at 174 and wrestle 171 all year? I thought the coaches had to bring the certification sheets with them to duals/tournaments. No?

Im sure he is not wrestling becuase our coaches informed our wrestler that he moved up a spot due to the hubbard kid being out

No one really checks the IHSA certification sheets. It's more of an honor system.

I feel sorry for this kid. And I hope there is some accountability for this within the system. With all that city wrestling coaches go through - and for very little pay - there needs to be more help for coaches. Although in this case it was just a matter of reading the rules.

If certification information was public information this would never happen.
