Interest in wrestling has peaked I guess. Back to the 90's. I did a little search for "new england wrestling" and across the upstate NE states there are pockets of press about the local wrestlers. Down here it's Danbury, and the odd article about Tyler Sung from New Canaan. I applaud those communities that are still supporting their high school sports teams, but they are fading away. No wonder kids get burnt out on the sport.....it's not one that thrives without the support of a community. In a single year I've seen the interest in this site fade tremendously. GametimeCT writes fluff articles about the SCC. Local papers are pooling stories so they recycle across the region. Success through conflict should be celebrated....it's been a building block for character development for kids as long as I've been around. Thoughts?

I'm actually surprised the site hasn't been a little busier with the social distancing thing and self quarantine.
The day after the Class S held in Killingly, the Norwich Bulletin, which I believe still has a state wrestling poll, had nothing in the paper despite Killingly dominating and other ECC teams finishing near the top. Nothing.
Interest is so poor, we cannot get this site updated to reflect the results of the Class and Open tournaments.
