I have a few links that I wanted to share, but before I do, I wanted to address some concerns I noticed in the comments.
I’d like to reiterate the importance of coaches getting results to us on the day of a meet/tournament. We most certainly were aware of the Mid-Hudson tournament at Arlington yesterday, and I was hoping to have some results either called or emailed in. I worked during the day yesterday, so I was not in the office at night, but I asked one of my colleagues to post the results when we received them. I woke up to an email this morning stating that we didn’t get anything.
It is true that Dutchess schools aren’t in our coverage area, which is why they aren’t included in Power Rankings and things of that nature. But, when there are local Westchester/Rockland/Putnam schools involved, we always try to give you guys results. I’m usually given about two days a week in which I can make it to an event and cover it myself. This week, with the Pearl River and Somers tournaments going on within our coverage area, those are the two that I selected.
For anything else which is wrestling related, I’m forced to rely heavily on the cooperation from coaches to make sure that we receive results. Most are very good about it, but I wanted to throw the phone number and email address up here once more in case anyone is having trouble.
As I’ve stated before, I would usually suggest emailing, which will limit the stress on both sides. But, calling between 5:30-9pm is always an option. As long as we received the results within 24 hours of an event, we will print it, but we won’t print anything which is more than a day old.
The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org; and the phone number is: 914-696-8888.
And here is this week’s wrestling notebook, which includes items on the Thakur family in Nyack, Rino DeVita’s 100th win, and the new locations and dates for sectionals.
I’ll be heading off to catch the finals of the Eric D’Agnese tournament at Somers in just a bit. Pending internet connection, I’ll try to update from right there. If I can’t get any service in the gym, I’ll be back later to post the results. The finals begin at 1pm.
