TDR TOP 12 – The best wrestlers of Eastern North Carolina – 2016-2017
TDR Editor’s Notes ; The last 2 weight classes of the top eastern North Carolina wrestlers with at least 12 at each weight class. Engraved wooden plaques with the wrestlers’ names will be presented to the top 35 overall. That number was chosen as it would reflect a first team and second team for each weight class and 7 wild cards or ‘others to be recognized’. Once all weigh classes are displayed and the top 35 are named then we will announce the winners of the top 4 annual Big Awards that we have statues presented to the wrestlers. Next posting will have the Top 35 to receive wooden plaques.

Ken Chertow leaving Centre County to start Division II wrestling program from scratch

TDR Editor’s Notes ; Welcome to North Carolina Ken! Great to see another collegiate wrestling program which can help wrestlers in the Carolinas to continue their education and wrestling Look forward to seeing your team in competition.
*******************************************
Ken Chertow leaving Centre County to start Division II wrestling program from scratch
BY RYNE GERY rgery@centredaily.com
Fifteen years ago, Ken Chertow checked off an item on his bucket list with the construction of his brick home in Boalsburg complete with its own wrestling room. Chertow dedicated his life to the sport, and the specially designed space he calls the Home Training Center allowed him to hold workouts on his property. It features offices and two wrestling rooms, where Chertow trained novice wrestlers in elementary school and worked with PIAA champions and future NCAA All-Americans since 2002. Chertow even installed a custom gate at his home’s entrance on Linden Hall Road, featuring the silhouette of a wrestler and the Olympic rings as another way for him to promote his sport. “People know this is the wrestling house,” Chertow said at the Home Training Center in the last week of March. But after 15 years, the place he trains won’t be the wrestling house in Centre County anymore — there’s a “For Sale” sign near the gate, and Chertow has plans to live in a six-month rental house in Charlotte, N.C., as he begins his tenure as the head coach of a start-up Division II program at Queens University of Charlotte.

TDR Top 12 at 106, 113 & 120 lbs.

TDR TOP 12 – The best wrestlers of Eastern North Carolina – 2016-2017
TDR Editor’s Notes ; Hopefully this displays clearly with the first 3 or lightest weight classes of the top 194 wrestlers with at least 12 listed in each weight class. We will present engraved wooden plaques with the wrestlers’ names to the top 35. That number was chosen as it would reflect a first team and second team for each weight class and 7 wild cards or ‘others to be recognized’. Once all weigh classes are displayed and the top 35 are named then we will announce the winners of the top 4 annual Big Awards that we have statues presented to the wrestlers.

Bentley Receives New Three-Year Contract

TDR Editor’s Notes ; Great to see a North Carolina born and raised wrestler become a successful coach that will continue to build the ASU program.
*************************************************
BOONE, N.C. — Appalachian State director of athletics Doug Gillin announced a new three-year contract for Appalachian State wrestling head coach JohnMark Bentley on Friday. The new three-year deal begins on July 1, 2017 and runs through July 30, 2020. “I am excited that JohnMark Bentley will remain the leader of our wrestling program,” Gillin said. “The growth and success of the program under JohnMark in both the Southern Conference and at the national level continues to be impressive. On top of all of the success on the mat, I am especially proud of the commitment that our wrestling program makes to campus and community involvement as well as its work in the classroom,” Gillin continued. “I’m thankful to Coach Bentley for his continued commitment to Appalachian State and am thrilled that he and his family will remain a part of the Appalachian family.” A three-time Southern Conference Coach of the Year, Bentley has been at the helm of Appalachian State wrestling for the past nine years, guiding them to three SoCon regular season championships and one SoCon Tournament championship.

Bears to wrestle in 2017-18

TDR Editor’s Notes ; Great to see new wrestling programs and teams being started even if in far away central Louisiana.
*********************************************
Soon enough, Bolton’s opponents will learn how difficult it is to wrestle a Bear.
Bolton announced that it will begin a wrestling program in the 2017-18 school year — making it the first Central Louisiana school to do so. “Wrestling is the oldest sport in the world and it’s strange this is the only part of the state that doesn’t have it.” Bolton athletic director Jason LaChica said. “What we aim to do is to try to narrow out the competition and bring something to Central Louisiana that could light a fire and spread. If we have enough interest, we may be able to get a collegiate wrestling program up here somewhere.”
