Merrillville Semi State

Recommended Posts

I was told this past week that Merrillville HS will no longer be hosting the Semi-State.  It is going to be moving to Michigan City HS.  For all those who hated MHS you now have your wish.

That's great capacity wise. Just curious if Michigan CIty has the "infrastructure to pull this off. I know Merrillville has a lot of people working the Semi State. I guess as I write Michigan CIty seems to handle the basketball Regional well.

If they need help, all they have to do is write to me. I will be more than happy to help.

Michigan City's AD stated that Semi State will be going to a new venue.  However, it is not not a done deal as to where it will be relocated.

I've now heard that the IHSAA is interested in keeping the semi-state in lake county. Lake Central or East Chicago Central.

If the Merrillville semi-state moves, this board will get about 25% less posts due to lack of complaints about it.

If it did move,  would we regret that our critical complaints resulted in the move from Merrillville,  then we would feel sad and nostalgic about all the good wrestling memories at Merrillville?   Probably not
