VISWA finally gets to participate in the A, AA & AAA
Virginia Challenge. Can
we rise to the challenge?
Are Trinity Episcopal High School & Wakefield School adding wrestling like Westover Christian Academy, Seton School & Massanutten Military Academy fairly recently have, and Timberlake Christian has considered doing?
Richmond's Trinity Episcopal High School will reinstate football during the Fall of 2004. Why not wrestling, though? They had a National Prep All-American in Will Seger (1984) [4th place, 185 lbs.] and some All Prep and state medalist wrestlers since then. Nevertheless, that Richmond-area nonboarding school which charges $12,500 per year in tuition still has no DEFINED plans to reinstate humanity's oldest sport which doesn't discriminate on the basis of blindness, deafness, amputee status, size or gender (as of this Summer's 2004 Olympics in which women's freestyle wrestlers will participate).
What's more influential than questioning from aspiring students and parents, or even from folks in the community who are simply concerned about this seemingly discriminatory decision of Trinity's? Here's their contact data:
Might you know any alumni who would call or write in, too?
Incidentally, very few people seem to realize just how affordable an education at an independently run school in Virginia can be. For more information on vouchers (which neighboring Washington D.C. already offers its taxpayers' youth), please click here . And if you're interested in asking an elected official in Virginia what (s)he thinks, feel free to click here: http://legis.state.va.us. Can you believe that Virginia is one of the only states not to even offer "open-enrollment" in exchange for our tax dollars?

How many high school state championships did multiple Olympic
wrestling champion Bruce Baumgartner (the U.S. flag bearer in Atlanta in
'96) win? Answer: 0
*A female wrestler from which pioneering Virginia high school became the first female, statewide, ever to win a match in the VISWA state tournament? Answer: Collegiate's Sunny Clemons '97.
*Title IX (and how a lack
of gender equity has forced our increasingly popular self defense-oriented
sport to lose several hundred official college teams).
*Considering the USA's record-high $5.9 trillion dollar national debt, which is straining law enforcement budgets nationwide like never before, would self defense-oriented sports (even at the mere exhibition level) not seem more potentially useful than ever to already diet-conscious women? Don't traveling overseas (especially where handguns are outlawed), and at night here in the USA already involve enough inherent risks for ambitious & career-oriented folks? Women's amateur wrestling is an Olympics sport now, and may become an NCAA and high school one at the rate it's growing. Wouldn't that seemingly help our sport rebound from Title IX?
