Weekly A, B-C wrestling polls here

Here are a couple wrestling polls that are compiled and sent out weekly by coaches. We get the Class B-C poll weekly from Glasgow coach Byron Hallock, and I’m not at all sure who cranks out the Class A each week. The AA poll has been more inconsistent, but when we get it, we’ll post it here.

Congrats to Shelby Grant, Ronan’s 160-pounder; St. Ignatius (and Charlo) 171-pounder Jacen Peterson, who is No. 1 in Class B-C; In Class A, local wrestlers Shawn Roberts of Columbia Falls (112) and Wolf Zink of Whitefish (heavyweight) are top ranked.

    Sims nearing college choice, visits to MSU, UM planned

    Back in early December, Corvallis prospect Jesse Sims de-committed from Oregon State, University where he had planned to play college football, after head coach Mike Riley left for Nebraska. Almost six weeks later, he's coming closer to making a decision -- again -- to where he will take his football talents. But not quite yet. "There's honestly not a whole lot new since then," Sims said Monday evening after a Corvallis basketball practice. "Still just waiting to see what kind of coaching staff they'll put in." The "they" in that statement is of course Oregon State, where Sims said he'd still like to play. An NCAA Division-I program in the Pac-12 Conference, the Beavers were Sims's first choice when he committed back in August and they'd still be now. But Sims wants to play tight end and he needs to make sure the Beavers still want him. New head coach Gary Anderson runs a different offense and Sims is uneasy about the role -- or possible lack thereof -- that tight ends might play in the system. In the meantime Pac-12 schools like USC and Arizona State are courting the 6-foot-4, 235-pounder, as well as Nebraska. But he's keeping his options open, too. Sims will make official recruiting visits to Montana's two D-I FCS programs this month. He visits Montana State this coming weekend, Jan. 16-17. He'll be in Missoula the next weekend, Jan. 23-24, to see the program at Montana and new head football coach Bob Stitt. Could the locals pull off the coup and snag this once promising Pac-12 prospect? We should know soon enough. National signing day is right around the corner, Feb. 4.

    Makena Morley gets creative to fund trip to track nationals

    Ever wanted an autographed photo of one of Montana's all-time record-breaking prep runners? Now's your chance. Bigfork High School junior and State B champion of champions Makena Morley is raising money through technology and grass roots to help her reach the New Balance Outdoor High School Track & Field Nationals meet in Greensboro, North Carolina in mid June. And any donors of $25 or more through the fundraising website receive a Morley original complete with signature.  As of this posting, Morley is about 75 percent of the way to her goal of $2,300 for travel and lodging costs for her and her father to the national meet. Events run June 13-15. Morley isn't new to the national running scene, but she appears to be getting create in funding her trips there. She won the West Regional of the Foot Locker Cross Country Championships back in December and then finished eighth in the ensuing national race. "As a junior I have been to 4 national championship races (three in cross country and one for indoor track) but I have never won a national title, so this one is very important to me because I would love for this to be the year for me to win," Morley wrote on her fundraising page. "It is an important year for my college recruiting process, because this is the year when all colleges are looking at you and at what you have accomplished!" IndieGoGo is a kind of online kickstarter to raise money for a cause or idea. It's "the world’s most established crowdfunding platform," according to the organization's website. Crowdfunding is the process of pooling money from many different people for a cause. Morley, a three-time winner of the State B cross country title and Gatorade Runner of the Year for Montana, plans to run the 5,000 meters at the New Balance Nationals along with either the one or two mile. For more about her trip to nationals, or to donate, you can visit her page here.
