The only downside of Highschool wrestling. Pictures included!!

RING-Worm

Yes ring worm. It is terrible . I just got it, and it spreads like wild fire

If you have gotten it, You must know how much of a pain in the ass it is to deal with it also.

Usually it is well kept. I am going to assume it wasn't cleaned the night i wrestled on it.

When my sons wrestled, they (Personal of hosting tournament) would come out between weight divisions/age groups and completely douse and slog the mats with solution/mops.

I would recommend refusing to wrestle at the next meet that they do not do this at.

If anything else, it will bring attention to the issue.

I'm assuming this was more than likely NY, NJ or PA?

Yes NJ, but this was just a pre season practice at my highschool

Ehh it's normal. I was a wrestler for Northampton High School (number 1 public school in the country for wrestling at the time). We wrestled the likes of the Nazareth, Easton, Parkland, and Blair Academy every year.

Staph sucks ass too.

But any high-schooler that quotes Marcus Luttrell, is off to a good start.

We put on antibacterial cream before every practice and match. Can't remember what it was called, but it was similar to shaving cream. And we cleaned the mats before every practice. We had one kid get ringworm one year, he was benched until a week after it cleared up.

During tournaments however, mats only got cleaned at the start of the day. There was probably some funky stuff growing by the end of the day.

Jumping in and swim in a pool or hot tub works ,, all the chemicals kill the bacteria .. We use to do that regularly during wrestling season .

Mein Auto:
I shoot sports for a local HS, at TX state tournament. The edge of the mat is as close as I want to get. Wrestling is a tough sport, and the guys under 165 lbs are quick. You can see a wannabe sumo wrestler too.

I've heard of it but never experienced myself. Kind of amazing when you think about it. My high school hardly ever cleaned the mats so I'm wondering why we were never afflicted with this problem. Can't say I ever recall running into anyone in high school who said they had the problem.

I have never wrestle when I was in High School. However, one time when I was watching a match, some nut wanted me to wrestle with him. I told him I have never done it before. But he insisted. So I complied. What he didn't know was I have been working out and practice martial arts for more than 9 years by then. After the match, nobody wanted to mess with me again.
