DEVELOPING LEADERS ON AND OFF THE MAT
Hendersonville sent three wrestlers to the TSSAA State individual tournament this past weekend. Senior, Dylan Treloar, took first place in the Region tournament the weekend before to advance to the state tournament where he was seeded second. Another Senior, Tre Delgado, took second place ensuring his spot in the state tournament, and sophomore, Nick Martin, took fourth place. All three wrestlers went in to this tournament knowing it wasn't going to be easy. The tournament is a three day long event, and not only did they have to wrestle some of the hardest matches they've had all year, but they also had to maintain their weight if they wanted to compete the next day! Martin and Delgado both fought very hard through multiple matches, but they came up just short of placing in the tournament. Treloar ended up being the only one from Hendersonville to place in the tournament this year. He wrestled five hard matches, his last being the finals of the tournament. He ended the tournament as state runner up, coming just short of being the champion. For Treloar and Delgado, this was their final state tournament they will be able to wrestle in, but they both believe they ended on a good note. As for Martin, he still has two more years to achieve his goals of placing in the state tournament. All three wrestlers did an outstanding job this year, and it has been a great season as a team as well.
Hendersonville, Tenn. – Two things are a given during a Hendersonville High School wrestling practice: Seniors Dylan Treloar and Tre Delgado will beat the tar out of each other, and when practice is over, they’ll still be friends. In fact, you seldom see one on the mat without the other … usually trying to pulverize the other into a greasy spot. They’ve been going at it since the sixth grade.“It’s not out of meanness,” explained Treloar, a 138 pounder who can snap an opponent’s head to the mat in a blink, “it’s to make each other better.”Read more...

Hendersonville, Tenn. _ Dylan Treloar, Tre Delgado, and Michael Perry were double winners for Hendersonville this week in a tri-meet with Overton and Beech.
The Commandos lost both matches Tuesday, falling to Overton 48-33 and to cross-town rival Beech 65-14. Beech was the night’s big winner, topping Overton 49-19.
This year’s campaign for the Commandos has been one of stops and starts. After losing their opener to McGavock, they beat East Literature, fell to Dickson County, then dropped a dual meet to conference foe Clarksville.
They rebounded at the Knoxville Catholic Invitational tournament, finishing seventh in a field of 26 teams and placing four wrestlers in the top six: Treloar, first at 138 pounds; Perry, 2nd at 160; Adam Wilson, 4th at 170; and Delgado, 6th at 145.Read more...
Stephen Neal in his collegiate daysUniversity of Iowa retired wrestling coach and Olympic gold medalist Dan Gable once said, "Once you've wrestled, everything else in life is easy." Perhaps the Tennessee Titans have that quote hanging in their war room, as they have targeted football players with grappling experience.
Their second and third-round draft picks both have wrestled. Zach Brown went undefeated as a heavyweight in his senior year of high school. Mike Martin won a state championship in Michigan his junior year of high school, and only gave up wrestling because of his football scholarship. Karl Klug, who has seven sacks for Tennessee as a rookie in 2011, qualified for the Minnesota state tournament as a wrestler.
"It's something that to me, when a guy has been a wrestler, especially when he has been a successful wrestler, it says something about his toughness and his commitment," general manager Ruston Webster said.
