Dillon Darr Places 6th at State Tournament!



Darr on Podium at States 2012

Senior Team Captain Dillon Darr capped off his high school career with a podium finish at the 2012 1A/2A Maryland State Wrestling Tournament this past weekend at Cole Field House. His trip to the University of Maryland was icing on the cake to his 103 career wins that Dillon has amassed during his days at Fort Hill H.S..

He started the night with a 12-1 Major decision over Perryville's Amos Harlan(35-3 record) who would eventually place 3rd in the 138lb weight class. Then he met Gwynn Park's Andrew Norris(23-4) in a match that took a double overtime for Dillon to pull off a 7-6 victory to reach the semi-final round of the Championship. It was a match that took every ounce of energy both wrestlers could muster just to comeplete the match. It was exciting and had the attention of everyone in attendance!

The next day showed that Dillon had not physically recovered from the last grueling match of the previous night. He lost to eventual State Champion Wes Cook (42-3 record)from Winter Mills 15-3. Then he was Tech Falled by Amos Harlan in their 2nd match 17-2. In the last match he lost to Adrienne Hazel (39-10) from Owing's Mill by an 8-1 score.

Dillon ended a great senior season with a record of 43-6! We look forward to watching Dillon in the future as he plans to apply for the Maryland State Police Academy and become a Coach in the Fort Hill Wrestling Club

PRESS RELEASE FROM NFHS about NEW WEIGHT CLASSES



NATIONAL FEDERATION OF STATE

HIGH SCHOOL ASSOCIATIONS

NEWS RELEASE

Weight classes changed in high school wrestling

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Bob Colgate

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (April 26, 2011) — The most significant changes in weight

classes in high school wrestling in 23 years will take place in the 2011-12 season.

In its April 4-6 meeting in Indianapolis, the National Federation of State High

School Associations (NFHS) Wrestling Rules Committee approved an upward shift of the

weight classes, beginning with the 103-pound class moving to 106 pounds, which

resulted in new weights for 10 of the 14 classes. The changes in weight classes, along

with 17 other rules revisions, were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of

Directors.

The 14 weight classes approved by the committee for 2011-12 are as follows:

106 (pounds), 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220 and 285.

Three middle weight classes – 145, 152 and 160 – were retained, although they are 7-

8-9 in order now rather than 8-9-10. The largest weight class (285 pounds) remains

unchanged as well.

“The change in weight classes resulted from a three-to-four year process

utilizing data from the National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) Optimal

Performance Calculator,” said Dale Pleimann, chair of the NFHS Wrestling Rules

Committee and former assistant executive director of the Missouri State High School

Activities Association. “The rules committee was able to analyze data from almost

200,000 wrestlers across the country, with the goal to create weight classes that have

approximately seven percent of the wrestlers in each weight class.

“Throughout the process, each state association was kept completely informed

and was provided multiple opportunities for input. The results of the last survey of

each state association indicated that the majority of states favored a change, and the

committee listened and acted accordingly.”

The last wholesale shift in weight classes occurred in 1988, when the lowest

weight class was increased from 98 to 103 pounds. The only other changes since then

were in 2002, when the number of classes went from 13 to 14 and the 215-pound

weight class became mandatory, and in 2006, when the 275-pound class was

increased to 285 pounds.

Among changes in wrestling holds, the Figure 4 around the head has been ruled

an illegal hold/maneuver. Previously, the Figure 4 was illegal around the body or both

legs.

“This move was being used by high school wrestlers more and more on the head,

so to minimize the risk of injury, the committee voted to outlaw the Figure 4 on the

head as well as around the body and both legs,” said Bob Colgate, NFHS assistant

director and liaison to the Wrestling Rules Committee.

Another significant change was made in Rule 2-1-3, which now makes the

boundary line inbounds and, thus, expands the wrestling area. Previously, a wrestler

was out of bounds if he or she was touching any part of the 2-inch-wide line which

marks the wrestling area.

An additional exception was added to Rule 8-2-1 stating that if the second

injury time-out is taken at the conclusion of the second period, and the opponent

already has the choice at the beginning of the third period, the opponent would then

have the added choice at the first restart after the beginning of the third period.

“Previously, at the end of the second period and before the third period, Wrestler

A takes his or her second injury time-out, which now gives the choice to Wrestler B,”

Colgate said. “However, it’s already Wrestler B’s choice by virtue of the original flip of

the disk. Therefore, Wrestler B gains no advantage or benefit from Wrestler A’s second

injury time-out. With this change, Wrestler B would now have his or her choice at the

first restart after the beginning of the third period.”

In other changes, a revision in Rule 3-1-13 allows the referee the flexibility to

determine his or her best position to monitor the clock and wrestlers during injury,

blood or recovery time-outs. Also, language in Rule 6-2-2 was changed from “forfeit”

to “disqualification” to reflect correct terminology.

The rules committee also devoted considerable time to developing rules for

multi-team dual meets and team-formatted tournaments. Previously, the NFHS

Wrestling Rules Book addressed only dual meets and individually bracketed

tournaments. Definitions for individually bracketed tournaments, dual meet/teamformatted

tournaments and combination tournaments will be contained in Rule 1-3.

“In recent years, high school wrestling has moved from dual meets and

individually bracketed tournaments to tournaments incorporating a dual meet/team

format,” Pleimann said. “The new Rule 11 will provide rules coverage for this type of

tournament format.”

“High school wrestling is in great shape across the country as participation

numbers continue to increase. The rules committee did propose 18 changes to the

rules book, but approximately two-thirds of those changes resulted from incorporating

the new dual meet/team format rules,” Pleimann added.

The final change is one that has been approved by the NFHS Board of Directors

for use in all NFHS rules books regarding the meet referee’s jurisdiction. The rule

extends the clerical duties of the referee beyond the end of the meet through the

completion of any reports required from actions that occurred while the referees had

jurisdiction.

Points of emphasis adopted by the committee for 2011-12 include

communicable diseases, injury time-outs, coach/referee conference, and concussion

recognition and management.

Wrestling is the sixth-most popular sport for boys at the high school level with

272,890 participants in 10,363 schools during the 2009-10 season, according to the

NFHS Athletics Participation Survey. In addition, 6,134 girls were involved in wrestling

in 1,009 high schools.
