What would happen to the coaches of Iowa or Pennsylvania if their cadet boys' team performed like this?

I'm not honestly sure?

Should the Cali Ladies have won? Nine to placing matches is pretty solid.

Adding to the severity of this disaster, Iowa had 18 scoring wrestlers while California had 38.

Iowa outscored California OVER 2:1 per wrestler.

 

Missouri also had 38 wrestlers and beat California on team points.

This would be like Mississippi placing higher than Pennsylvania on the boys' side.

California "wins" the junior women's title.

They had 75(!) wrestlers competing.
One champion, one second, one third place.


Out of 18 wrestlers in medal matches, 7 won.
Taking out the California v California matches, they won 4 matches out of 12.

165 team points with 75 wrestlers = 2.2 team points per wrestler.
If the scoring were limited to one wrestler per weight, California wouldn't have made the top 5.

California has the native talent to be JAPAN at this event but they've opted for "Zerg Rush" as their strategy.


Maybe it's time for California to have a change of leadership.

That's been needed for a long time.

Not having Mark Halvorson as the HC for the Greco teams while he was alive use to say a lot about the priorities of CAUSAW.  

I can't claim any info on the girls side, but I'm not surprised there are issues.

"Led by eight All-Americans (1 champion), Iowa won their first team championship. That stopped a run from 2012 where California won every team title."

"In the history of the 16U women's tournament, Iowa only had 15 All-Americans from 2011-2021. This year they had more than half of that total with eight."

It's far worse on the girls' side.

Fewer eyes, fewer checks.

CA-USAW charged each athlete $2200.
With 75 athletes going, that's $165K total.

$1000/team point.

Meanwhile, the Michigan ladies(Juniors) showed very well.  3 Champs, 1 second, 1 3rd and 1 4th.  Not bad for sending 19.  Out of the 13 that didn't place, only 3 didn't win a match.  The other 10 went a combined 25-20, with all 10 winning at least 2 matches!

 

Edited to add:  The 16U MI ladies need to be credited here as well.  Although they took 4th, they only sent 11.  Of those 11, 5 placed(1st,1st, 3rd,4th and 7th).  The remaining 6 were 15-12, with only 1 of those not winning a match.  The others, again, all won 2 matches or more!
