    What is the Premier National League? PINnacle's Jared Lawrence explains

    The first Premier National League (PNL) wrestling event will take place on Saturday, September 24 in Aurora, Illinois. The PNL features eight of the nation's top wrestling clubs in tiered competition focused on development of the next level of college and international wrestlers. On this episode of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Jared Lawrence, the founder of Minnesota-based PINnacle Wrestling School, will talk about the PNL's origin story and what to expect from the fledgling league and what it's plans are moving forward.

    Before we get moving though, I’ll touch on some things about Serbia and the U.S. performance before I address a social media post by Hall of Famer Wade Schalles that was critical of the promotional work done by USA Wrestling because of the lack of mainstream national coverage at the World Championships.

    Then we get to actual productive stuff, like the GearUP campaign I’ve joined on with in conjunction with Beat The Streets National. Check out how you can help outfit kids by going to https://www.mattalkonline.com/gearup

    Sports Illustrated's Pat Forde on swimming, sportswriting and realignment's impact on Olympic sports

    Sports Illustrated's Pat Forde on swimming, sportswriting and realignment's impact on Olympic sports

    For the last three years, Pat Forde has been a senior writer at Sports Illustrated. A native of Colorado Springs, Forde’s journalism career started upon his arrival at the University of Missouri. After nearly two decades at the Courier-Journal in Louisville, Kentucky, he’s spent the last decade writing college sports for Yahoo and then SI. Forde joins the Short Time Wrestling Podcast to give his unique perspective on being a national sportswriter who actually has that understanding of the world of the Olympic-sports athlete at the college level. His kids competed in swimming, with his daughter Brooke a medal-winning swimmer in Tokyo at the 2020 Olympic Games.

    We’ll talk to Pat about getting into the field, his podcast with colleagues Ross Dellenger and Dan Wetzel and things we need to keep an eye on from the NCAA Transformation Committee and the struggles the athletes we know about deal with.

    You can follow Pat on Twitter @ByPatForde.

    20 years later, Limestone coach Brandy Green relished the chance to compete in Fargo

    20 years later, Limestone coach Brandy Green relished the chance to compete in Fargo

    In 2002, USA Wrestling launched the first Junior Women’s Freestyle National Championships and the tournament joined the four men’s divisions in Fargo, North Dakota. The fifth tournament in Fargo would feature just over 100 young women. One of those first champions was Michigan’s Brandy Green, who then was known as Brandy Rosenbrock. Green was one of the first two women to ever win multiple titles in Fargo, joining Oregon’s Samantha Lang as two-timers with their championships in 2003. Green also competed at the 2004 Olympic Team Trials as part of the first group of women who wrestled for a chance to represent the U.S. at the Olympic Games.

    Now currently the head women’s coach at Limestone University in Gaffney, South Carolina, Green looks back on what the experience meant for her and what her experiences have done to help her train and coach the next generation of wrestlers as they compete on the mats in Fargo and have actual bonafide college wrestling opportunities where they were few and far between when Green was coming out of high school.

    This is the full interview from the women’s feature released by Mat Talk Online during Fargo back in July.

    California's Malinda Ripley is one of Fargo's first women pioneers

    California's Malinda Ripley is one of Fargo's first women pioneers

    In 2002, USA Wrestling launched the first Junior Women’s Freestyle National Championships and the tournament joined the four men’s divisions in Fargo, North Dakota. The fifth tournament in Fargo would feature just over 100 young women. One of those first champions was California’s Malinda Ripley. Twenty years later, you’ll still find Ripley on the floor in Fargo, coaching the women of Team California. In July of 2022, I caught up with Ripley to talk about what she remembers about the opportunity presented at that first championship, her drive to go “big game hunting” in chasing down Mary Kelly of Illinois and what it’s meant to her to coach a generation of girls who didn’t have to break down doors, rather just walk through them as they were opened by people like Ripley.

    This is the full interview from the women’s feature released by Mat Talk Online during Fargo back in July.
