Let's take a breath

I was surprised how much of a reaction that the Beth-Center School Board made when it hired a new wrestling coach. It's obvious there are people in the district passionate about the sport and concerned about how it's being run.
My opinion about the hire is this: I am glad the board picked a new coach rather than shut down the program. There is a great deal of tradition in B-C wrestling and I hope it lasts. How would you feel if the program no longer existed? No true fan should want that.
I am not going to ask everyone to hold hands in a circle and sing kumbaya, because that isn't going to change people's opinion.
The wonderful part about wrestling is that it is an INDIVIDUAL sport. There are 14 weight classes and none of them is dependent on the other. Points don't carry over into the next bout and each new 6 minutes of wrestling has a new face and a new opponent.
So chose the part, and the people, in the wrestling program you believe is worthy of your support and move on.
The season is fast approaching.
