TN Ironman at Blackman High School 4-14-2018

Recommended Posts

A quick thank you to everyone who came out to Blackman for the IronMan.  We had some great wrestlers competing and there were lots of exciting and very competitive matches.   

It was a long day with three tournaments back to back and those who made it through the whole day certainly deserve a medal!!  (Parents and Coaches included!)  Congrats to all those who won the cup!

Thanks to John Salter who kept us in business with TrackWrestling, and thanks to all the Blackman parents and staff for putting in a long day to help advance the dreams of so many. 

Numbers were a bit higher than I originally thought. 

2018 - 282 @ (Blackman HS)
2017 - 185 @ (Summit HS)
2016 - 216 @ (Blackman HS)
2015 - 172 @ (Blackman HS)
2014 - 156 @ (Blackman HS)

Competing in Freestyle and Greco is an excellent way to get in summer work and stay motivated.  Hoping to continue to see growth here in Tennessee!

To echo Sells, great work EVERYONE... Thank you cbg. I am obviously biased but it appears that the Ironman is indeed synonymous with Blackman. Knowing there were proms and ACT's this weekend, along with wrestlers playing their second or third sport of the year, our numbers were awesome. 

Most of them probably don't read the boards but I want to recognize the ladies behind the scenes that make this event not only successful, but possible. YOU ALL ARE AMAZING. Shout out to Georgia, Kentucky, Alabama, and Virginia.. we enjoyed having you. Special thanks to John Salter for making sure every kid was able to wrestle, even though it meant starting late. We know that's not how you roll! To the TWF, 32 Ironman winners.. kudos. And finally, the refs. You all did a great job. No one will ever be happy... Thanks for stepping up!

See you all next year!!!

Huge thanks goes to Bray and all the Blackman coaches and parents that helped to make the Ironman possible! It was a great tournament where all of our kids (bantam-high school) were able to get at least 6 matches throughout the day. Coffee County had a great time!
