    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.

    Northwestern women's lacrosse coach Kelly Amonte Hiller all-in on daughter's wrestling in Fargo

    Noted college women's lacrosse coach Kelly Amonte Hiller is in Fargo watching her daughter Harlee competed at the 16U Women's Freestyle National Championships. A fan of combat sports and multiple sports for athletes, Amonte Hiller talks about her daughter's time in wrestling, what the crossover is for mindset training for lacrosse and wrestling and what benefits she's seen from wrestling for her daughter. She also touches on what would make wrestlers good lacrosse players and what women's wrestling can borrow from women's lacrosse as a growing college sport.

    Epilogue: Harlee Hiller finished 8th in 16U women’s freestyle at 106 pounds, earning All-American honors.

    Building women's wrestling with veteran coach Shannyn Gillespie of Lakeland University

    Building women's wrestling with veteran coach Shannyn Gillespie of Lakeland University

    An All-American at Lock Haven during his college days, Shannyn Gillespie has been on the front lines of coaching women’s wrestling for nearly two decades. The Illinois native is currently the head wrestling coach at Lakeland University, a Division III school that offers both men’s and women’s wrestling. On Episode 708 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Gillespie talks about his path from suburban Chicago to tiny Lock Haven, Pennsylvania and the path in life that led him to coaching women, including one of the most pivotal spots in women’s wrestling’s growth - the USOEC at Northern Michigan University.

    Gillespie will obviously pitch his Muskies wrestling program, but also offer perspectives and opinions about wrestling and explain the growth of women’s wrestling, his own coaching career and where he sees the sport moving in the future. He’s got a lot of resources on his website at CoachShannyn.com.

    Speaking at the Peninsula Sports Club's Headliner's Night

    Speaking at the Peninsula Sports Club's Headliner's Night

    The 72nd annual Headliner’s Night, hosted by the Peninsula Sports Club, took place on June 27 at the Omni Hotel in Newport News, Virginia. William & Mary football play-by-play commentator Jay Colley served as the Master of Ceremonies for the annual event, which featured Mat Talk Online’s Jason Bryant as the event’s Keynote Speaker.

    In 2021, Bryant received the Bob Moskowitz Media Award from the Peninsula Sports Club just hours after he left the Olympic Games in Tokyo. This year, he had a chance to speak about his experiences around the mat, but how much his life was shaped by watching and covering sports on the Peninsula before breaking out into the world of international wrestling. The entire night is captured on this episode of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast. The keynote stars around 11 minutes in with a lot of Virginia-based stuff before and after if that’s your kinda thing.

    Brendan Buckley excited about Final X and the future of Beat The Streets New York

    Brendan Buckley, Executive Director of Beat The Streets New York, talks about his path to BTS, the mission of the program and how the organization has grown and created opportunities since launching in what was once a barren landscape of wrestling. Oh, and that whole Final X thing coming to the Hulu Theater on June 8 in New York City!

    Prior to getting to the show with Brendan, I’ll give you a rundown on some points about World Team Trials attendance and wrestling attendance in general as well as a shout out to my former boss at the NWCA, Pat Tocci, who is leaving the organization to take a job with a local school district as its Athletics Director. Buckley’s interview starts about 18:00 minutes in.

    New Central Missouri head coach Cody Garcia begins his own legacy

    New Central Missouri head coach Cody Garcia begins his own legacy

    Cody Garcia was a four-time NCAA Division II All-American and two-time champion at powerhouse Nebraska-Omaha under coach Mike Denney. Garcia, the son of a coach himself, started his career at his alma mater after finishing up with his eligibility in 2009. Most in wrestling know what happened in Omaha at the end of the 2011 season, but Garcia moved on to coach at two NAIA schools in Kansas. His first stop would be Bethany before spending the last seven years leading the Wildcats of Baker University in Baldwin City, Kansas.

    Garcia returns to Division II as the 10th coach at Central Missouri, the same place where his father Mike won an NCAA Division II title in 1982. On Episode 705 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, I talk with Garcia about his path through Omaha, wrestling for Coach Denney at “the other place,” and his return to Division II. Garcia also touches on going into the UNO Hall of Fame despite the school no longer fielding its championship wrestling program and the emotion involving the experience as well as the dynamic of the coaching tree of his college coach impacting the landscape of Division II wrestling in Missouri.
