    First Poll versus Final Poll

    Afternoon everybody. I always look at this at the end of the year to see how it went, and how we did. I'm pleased. I only want to say two or three things, at least one of which will probably result in my screen name being twisted around and my voters insulted again, but here are my thoughts. In the first poll, the only two teams who weren't there at the end were Brentwood and Beech. The Bruins were a returning state placer team and had just won the Ooltewah tournament, so they were a good bet that first week. There was a good bit of parity in midstate, and Centennial peaked at the right time. They received votes at the beginning as well. I watched them a good bit last weekend and was incredibly impressed with them. Their kids wrestled hard, never gave up, and never quit trying to win. It also looked to me like they were a very close knit bunch of kids who were wrestling for each other. That's hard to beat. Coach Pelkey did a great job with them. Beech battled injury issues and the loss of two state champions, but in spite of a tighter pack in their region, Coach Roberts got his guys into the duals once again. I think at the end they just couldn't stay healthy enough to go deep in the duals. As for the final poll, ten of the twelve who were there at the beginning were there at the end. Coach Foreman and and his crew at Pigeon Forge should be recognized for their state title. He's about to have a really good team in a few years. And more than one coach last weekend told me that Oakland was very solid; several people expected them to be there. So there you have it. I want to thank my voters as well. Doing this is extra work for them and I enjoy talking to them every week. TENNESSEE HIGH SCHOOL WRESTLING POLL From: Jeff Price Results from: 12/3/18 THIS IS THE FIRST POLL OF THE SEASON.

    TN WRESTLING TALK- STATE DUALS EDITION

    Point taken. I'll take the hit on that one for assuming that all my voters knew what happened Friday night. That's my fault. The people who knew voted accordingly. It's on me for being presumptuous. No excuse for it. Baylor did move up, and McCallie dropped, so that was reflected. And you're right. It will sort itself out this weekend. I apologize for not doing a better job of getting info out to my voters.
