Fort Scott's JV wrestlers have been busy this season

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Fort Scott's junior varsity wrestlers have been busy, working on improving their technique and gaining experience thus far this season.

"Our JV team is critical for the future of our program," varsity head Coach David Brown said. "It is at this level key skills are learned that prepare our athletes for varsity competition.

"We are fortunate that if our JV wrestlers compete in every competition, they could have up to 30 matches in a season. There are many varsity programs that can't provide that opportunity."

Brown noted that coaches Alvin Metcalf and Bo Graham are "invaluable to the education of these athletes. We often have JV wrestlers that are more than capable to compete at the varsity level, but are beaten out by another athlete on our team.

"With any sport, injuries and illness can promote a JV wrestler to varsity in a moment's time. It is my experience that we consistently call upon our JV to rise to the varsity throughout the year, and we do have wrestlers at the JV that would be varsity for many of our opponents.

"I remember a season when we had three wrestlers at the 112-pound class. A week before the regional tournament, the varsity wrestler was injured in practice and lost for the season.

"The JV wrestler stepped in, but in a couple of days was so sick he could not compete. The third man on the depth chart stepped in and successfully put himself through the regional tournament and became a state qualifier. And to top it off, he placed sixth in the state tournament.

"That goes to show the importance of the JV and that you never know when you will have the chance to shine on the big stage," Brown said.

Several of the JV wrestlers have yet to compete due to their late start this season, but will see their first opportunity when the Tiger wrestlers have a home dual Jan 3.

Thomas Nighswonger at 106 pounds and Isaac Thurston at 138 will be looking for their first match.

The team will have its next opportunity on Jan. 5 with a JV tournament at Independence.

"League duals in January provide opportunities, provided our opponents also have JV wrestlers near our athletes' weight class," noted Brown.

Fort Scott has league duals Jan. 15 at Parsons with Coffeyville, Jan. 24 at Independence with LCHS, and Feb. 7 at Chanute with Columbus.

The JV has tournaments on Jan. 5 at Independence, Jan. 26 at home, Feb. 2 at Blue Valley, and Feb. 9 at Burlington.
