The 2x sectional champion

Good matches at Mater Dei Holiday Classic this year?

Recommended Posts

Deepest Weight Class-138

HM: 106-132-220

 

Weakest Weight Class- 170

HM: 195-285-120

 

Most anticipated match

1. Saul Ervin vs. Kyle Luiguis- Last year Ervin won 3-1 in the finals

2. Joe Lee vs Burk Van Horn- Indiana’s #1 versus #2

3. Avery Buckman vs Jaden Sonner Both are defending classic champions

4. Brett Henson vs Wade Ripple- Possible Semi State Finals match and top ten hwts

 

Question to be answered

1. Can Hinderlifter or Rioux give Kentucky’s stud middle schooler a match at 106?

2.  Will Van Horn or Lee bump up or down to avoid facing each other?

3.  Can Mason Miranda pull the upset of Ervin or Luigis?

4. How good is Sellmer?  He is having a great year in beating Melloh of Cathedral and losing to Rumph in OT.  I can see him getting 1st or 5th as 138 is loaded!

5.  Who from Avon will have a mediocre tournament but make it to state?  Last year Jacob Clark finished 5th at Mater Dei but 7th at state.  Conley finished 5th at Mater Dei and was a SQ. 

6. Most importantly, who wins the team race??  Union County beat Castle worse than Mater Dei did.  Team Rankings- Union County #1, Avon #2, Mater Dei #3. 

 

How many state champs will come from the classic? Every year seems to produce around 3-7 state champs.

Predictions- I say 9 state champs

#1 (KY) Union Zeke Escalena 

#1 Avon Asa Garcia

#2 (KY) St. X Nate Wheeler

#1 (KY) Union Saul Ervin

#1 (KY) Union Bryce Sheffer

#1 MD Joe Lee 

#2 FC. Van Horn

#3 (KY) Union Avery Buckman  

great write-up!

 

escalara will not get past hinderliter or rioux...

Great tournament,

 

But a couple of points , Mason Miranda beating Luigis is not a upset .. both are very strong wrestlers .. Miranda finished ahead of Luigis at IHPO this year ... I think it's a close match if it happens with Miranda winning .. Sellmer is a good wrestler and has been on the rise for a couple of years but finally putting it all together this year..

More insight to come tomorrow night as Mater Dei visits Union County in a dual meet, I am told.

You got bad information I'm afraid

Can't wait to see how Avon stacks up at EMD. I like that only Avon thinks the Avon kids have a chance.It might be like at Semi State 2 years ago in Evansville when Avon won and they would not announce it or give Avon the award. Avon's Coach had to go up to the head table and ask for it. any where in Evansville is a VERY tough place to win, even when you win. :-) 

the reason it took so long was because it was a TIE.   and they were trying to get confirmation from the IHSAA if they had a tie break policy in place.   they ended up giving the trophy to Avon but then found out on Tuesday that there was NOT a tie break and they awarded both Avon and MD co-championships.

The IHSAA website under wrestling, clearly list Avon as the Semi State Champions. I don't know how to get more official than that. Still a tough place to win even when the IHSAA declares you as the winner.

There is not a single weight class full this year. 132 has 1 bye and the rest has 2 or more. Some weight classes only have 2-3 first round matches. Shouldn't be a problem to get through 2ND round which is normally quarters and first round of comes combined.
