Lets hear the wild, crazy picks from the BEST Semi-State, The DirtySouth!!!

 

I probably won't have the preview ready by Monday night, I hear one of my knights is out of state and I'm working to fill his spot. 

 

Maybe I can get some Ford Tough Locks in place though by the HangOut!!

 

The Ford Center is gonna be Rockin' Saturday, let's hear some predictions!!!!

I'll start off at 106. This is a loaded weight class featuring 4 ranked wrestlers and a few that may be overlooked and flying under the radar. First round matches will put some great ones starting off with Scott(HH) vs another tough freshman Sego(IC). Sego is a big 106 with his 2 losses coming from top ranked wrestler(Rioux and Horty). Scott's 3 losses also come from top ranked wrestler(Casebolt and Ervin(Ky). This one should be good.

Campbell vs Sutton. While Campbell is possibly favorite here to reach the finals, he'll see a tough underrated freshman Sutton(Boon). He's a scrapy wrestler who made some noise at regionals by beating Hinderliter(EMD).

Lastly, there's the freshman phenom Rioux(Av) vs Senior Hinderliter(EMD). Does Meter Dei pull an upset here?

In the end, here's my pick for the Final 4 moving on in no order.

Sego, Campbell, Rioux, Casebolt

We have almost all of the same wrestlers advancing. Crazy. My count is we have 50/56 of the same advancements lol. Either great minds think alike or dumb ones.

I am pulling for certain wrestlers to advance to State, so would like to them advance...But if I had money on it I would go with the ones I picked to advance.

I'm going a different direction....   Listed below are many of the kids from the Castle Regional.  The first # after their name is the % I give them to advance to state, meaning win in the ticket round.  The 2nd # is their likely/possible placement.  Any percentages 50 or below, obviously possible placements would only apply if they can get past the ticket round.

Note: I didn't give anyone 0% or 100%.

 

106

Kaleb Hinderliter MD 10%

Devon Casebolt CA   75%  3rd/4th

 

113

Kane Egli MD       80%   3rd/4th

Brooks Hartz CA  10%

Seth Horty EM     60%  2nd-4th Would be higher but respect Brownsburg and their level of comp)  

Chris Tucker Rei   25%  4th

 

120

Eli Dickens MD     60%  2nd   Mosconi in ticket round will be harder than semifinal match

Neal Bealmer CA  20% Mills in ticket round ends season

Hunter Rice EM    10%

 

126

Matt Lee  MD       90%  2nd  Definitely got the best draw possible opposite Mulkey/Rooks

Carson Willis CA  25%  3rd/4th If he upsets Rooks, don't see him getting past Mulkey

 

132

Kyle Luigs MD    60%  1st/3rd   Miranda in ticket round doesn't seem fair.  As good of a draw Matt Lee got, Luigs' was equally bad.

Matt Kincaid CA  20% 

Caleb Craig ER  40%  2nd/4th

 

138

Nolan Weidner MD 10%  Might should have given him 20% 

Robert Deters CA   40%  3rd/4th   Gave the edge to Conley in the ticket round

Nolan Schaefer EM 20%  If he wins opener, Sellmer ends season

Levi Miller NP          60%  2nd/4th

 

145

Joe Happe MD        40%  2nd-4th  Tough ticket round against Osho/Wathen survivor

Jacob Freeman CA 10%  Brayton Lee, 'nuff said

Nolan Durcholz EM 20%

Harley Gorman MV 55%  4th   Finishing 2nd got the better draw this time

 

152

Joe Lee MD            98%   1st

Clay McNutt CA      50%   4th   1st 2 rounds could both be 50/50.  Probably should have gone 40%

Austin Bethel  MV   85%   2nd  Only 85% because unsure how banged up he is

 

160

Macartney Parkinson MD  30%  4th  Traded wins (3-2 & 6-4 SV1) with Stikes at MD Classic.  Capable but would have to pull upset vs. Mappes to advance

Jacob Farmer  CA             60%  2nd - 4th

Chase Wilson PR              50%  1st - 4th  Get past Brewer in ticket round and has a shot at any other matches

 

170

Wyatt Montgomery MD  10%

Carson Mohler CA         40%  4th  Tough 1st round match vs Jonah Hays.  Probably tougher than ticket round

Conner Brown  EM        55%  3rd/4th   Tough 1 vs 4 against Ciccarelli in round 1

Micah Keller MV            20%  Can't seem him beating both Stock and Fuller

 

182

Will Nunn  CA             20%

Jeremy McKinley TE  50%  4th 50/50 vs Jake Moore in ticket round??

 

195

Kurtis Wilderman MD   90%   1st/3rd

Will Rolley CA              30%

Holden Abshier EM      25%

 

220

Michael Boots MD      45%  2nd/4th   Slight edge to Garrison Lee

Brennan Norman CA  20%  

 

285

Alex Lichlyter EM  60%  2nd/4th  

Wade Ripple  MV  50%  1st - 4th  Bret Henson in 1st Round!  IS he healthy?  Ripple could win it all or drop 1st Round to Henson.  

 

Look forward to hearing arguments for or against....

113 is headlined by returning champ Garcia(Av). The first match that really pops out is 1st round Horty(Me) vs Lawhead(Br). Horty is having a good senior season, but he's going to face a tough underclassman who has been battle tested this season. Looking at some common opponent match up criteria, this makes for a tough match up.

My picks for punching ticket to state

Garcia,Egli,Petro,Lawhead

 

Wouldn't be a bit surprised to see Horty over Lawhead. Just basing this off strength of schedule.

120 has 4 ranked within the top 8 and only 3 of them will get to advance as we'll see Dickens(EMD) battle it out with with Mosconi(IC) with the winner to possibly advance to the finals where the winner of #1 ranked Mills(BB) will square off with a talented Rooks(Ce).

My picks to advance

Rooks,Mills,Cunningham,Dickens

106: Sego, Campbell, Rioux, Casebolt

106

FIRST ROUND BATTLES

Sego 29-2 vs Scott 38-3

Sutton 41-6 vs Campbell 35-3

Rioux 29-5 vs Hinderliter 25-8

TICKET ROUND

Stephenson 30-8 vs Scott 38-3/Sego 29-2 winner

SEMIFINALS

Casebolt 30-2 over Rioux 29-5

Campbell 35-3 over Stephenson 30-8

FINALS

Campbell 35-3 over Casebolt 30-2

 

OVERVIEW

The Mooresville and Evansville regional have the best 106’s and they got paired together first round. The freshman from Boonville and Heritage Hills both surprised some people in beating Mater Dei last week. Can they pull another upset this week? I don’t see any major upsets here….the only question for me is Stephenson vs Sego/Scott winner. Rioux snuck one past Campbell last week to win the regional but has a tougher road ahead than Rioux does.

 

113

FIRST ROUND BATTLES

Horty 38-5 vs Lawhead 32-9

TICKET ROUNDERS

Petro 21-5 vs Antunez 37-4

SEMIFINALS

Garcia 34-0 over Egli 27-7

Antunez 37-4 over Lawhead 32-9

FINALS

Garcia 34-0 over Antunez 37-4

OVERVIEW

Lawhead vs Horty will be a battle between two seasoned veterans. Lawhead has wrestled the best the state has to offer and Horty has been around forever fighting to punch his ticket. The other question mark comes from the Antunez/Petro matchup. Petro is capable of placing 2nd and seems to be turning it on lately. Antunez has battled Conaway to a 8-2 loss and Viduya to a 10-2 loss. I’m taking Antunez with the risky pick to place 2nd. Garcia sharpens his saw for a tough state finals next weekend.

 

120

FIRST ROUND BATTLES

Rooks 38-1 vs Denny 34-8

TICKET ROUNDERS

Bealmer 28-5 vs Mills 31-1

Dickens 27-3 vs Mosconi 37-1

SEMIFINALS

Rooks 38-1 over Mills 31-1

Dickens 27-3 over Weddle 28-7

FINALS

Rooks 38-1 over Dickens 27-3

OVERVIEW

Denny vs Rooks first round is crazy. Denny lost to Mills 3-0 and is a returning state qualifier. He comes from the toughest regional in the state and if 3 of the Mooresville regional punch their ticket it wouldn’t surprise me. IT’s a shame Mills and Rooks has to happen in the semifinals. Mosconi vs Dickens feature two kids who are top 10 in the state and capable of placing. Rooks and Mills can be a finals match as well.

 

126

FIRST ROUND BATTLES

Hunt 31-9 vs Fisher 27-5

TICKET ROUNDERS

Lee 24-3 vs Craig 33-5

Hunt 31-9 vs Pruett 26-7

Rooks 38-0 vs Willis 37-3

SEMIFINALS

Lee 24-3 over Hunt 31-9

Rooks 38-0 over Mulkey 32-0

FINALS

Rooks 38-0 over Lee 24-3

OVERVIEW

WOW…Rooks and Mulkey in the semifinals?? This could be a preview of a state finals match! Mulkey has Rooks number but Rooks is due for a win. This is the first weight we see that is pretty deep with talent. Lee/Craig Hunt/Pruett Rooks/Willis will all be great matches. How good is Lee? Hunt and Craig are State qualifiers and Mulkey and Rooks are place winners. Very tough weight class!

 

132

FIRST ROUND BATTLES

Nothing that stands out

TICKET ROUNDERS

Luigs 31-0 vs Miranda 16-6

Smith 39-3 vs Franklin 38-2

SEMIFINALS

Luigs 31-0 over Combest 38-1

Smith 39-3 over Campbell 31-4

FINALS

Luigs 31-0 over Smith 39-3

 

OVERVIEW

C’MON IHSAA! Another possible state finals match in the semistate semi finals! Smith from Bl. North and Franklin from New Washington will be a good match. Franklin was a state qualifier as a freshman and hasn’t made it back since. He is itching to punch his ticket and avoids Luigs and Combest in the draw. I don’t know much about Campbell other than he beat Miranda… Top heavy weight with Luigs and Combest

 

138

FIRST ROUND BATTLES

Blubaugh 35-6 vs Weidner 21-12 just because you can never count out MD

TICKET ROUNDERS

Blubaugh 35-6 vs Schoenegge 35-6

Miller 37-4 vs Bigelow 23-8

SEMIFINALS

Schoenegge 35-6 over Miller 37-4

Conley 30-5 over Sellmer 34-2

FINALS

Conley 30-5 over Schoenegge 35-6

 

OVERVIEW

Lots of great underclassmen here…Sellmer has the most upside and has really had a solid season but I picked against him going with Conley and the “upset”. Blubaugh vs Schoegge in the ticket round will feature to future high placers next year. Sellmer, Conley and the Blubaugh/Schoenegge winner can all place top 8.

 

 

145

FIRST ROUND BATTLES

Politt 31-10 vs Mosconi 33-7

Osho 27-6 vs Wathen 41-5

Bullock 35-6 vs Coyle 33-3

TICKET ROUNDERS

Happe 25-8 vs Osho/Wathen winner

Webb 36-4 vs Coyle 33-3

SEMIFINALS

Lee 38-0 over Mosconi 33-7

Webb 36-4 over Coyle 33-3

FINALS

Lee 38-0 over Webb 36-4

 

OVERVIEW

Lee tech falls the field… Politt/Mosconi is a great first round match as both are battle tested and winner punches their ticket. Osho/Wathen first round is a match between two top 20 wrestlers. Wathen is a great young wrestler but Avon is always strong at semi state. Coyle and Webb may be the best ticket round match this weekend. I’m picking Webb but don’t be surprised if Coyle gets 2nd and places top 8 the following week.

 

152

FIRST ROUND BATTLES

McNutt 29-11 vs Thomas 36-5

Dalton 34-7 vs Davidson 29-9

Foster 27-9 vs Aydelott 31-4

TICKET ROUNDERS

Schank 43-5 vs Thomas 36-5

Clark 26-4 vs Thomas 36-5

SEMIFINALS

Bethel 37-3 over Thomas 36-5

Lee 28-0 over Clark 26-4

FINALS

Lee 29-0 over Bethel 37-3

 

OVERVIEW

This seems to be a pretty clear cut weight with Lee and Bethel leading the class with Clark in the second tier. Schank vs Thomas/McNutt winner gets a state finals birth after they all got a great draw!

 

160

FIRST ROUND BATTLES

Parkingson 28-6 vs Stikes 30-7

TICKET ROUNDERS

Stock 28-4 vs Beineke 37-7

Wilson 34-3 vs Brewer 33-2

Farmer 33-7 vs Adkins 26-6

SEMIFINALS

Brewer 33-2 over Stock 28-4

Mappes 35-1 over Farmer 33-7

FINALS

Mappes 35-1 over Brewer 33-2

 

OVERVIEW

I think we will see some upsets here. Wilson and Brewer meet in the ticket round and before last weekend I would have said Brewer, but after Stock put the hammer on Brewer, it’s up in the air! The Stock boys are wrestling lights out as of late! I think Brewer gets his bearings back this week and makes a run.

 

170

FIRST ROUND BATTLES

Brown 34-7 vs Cicciarelli 30-9

Chapman 32-7 vs Murell 26-12

Creasy 22-2 vs Spiller 22-11

Hays 27-9 vs Mohler 27-11

Stock 33-2 vs Keller 33-2

TICKET ROUNDERS

Brown/Cicciarelli winner vs Chapman/Murrell winner

VanHorn 33-1 vs Mosley 39-4

Fuller 45-3 vs Stock/Keller winner

SEMIFINALS

Vanhorn 33-1 over Brown 34-7

Fuller 45-3 over Hays 27-9

FINALS

Vanhorn 33-1 over Fuller 45-3

 

OVERVIEW

I think everyone will be watching this weight come together. There really isn’t a bad match throughout the matches. You would have thought Vanhorn was a LOCK but Stock slayed the giant and showed everyone he is beatable. The top 4 can be flipped in any order. I have Cicciarelli losing first round but he can easily place 3rd. Very deep weight here…

 

182

FIRST ROUND BATTLES

Smith 29-5 vs Hendrich 31-5

Hauser 28-9 vs Guerroer 38-4

TICKET ROUNDERS

McKinley 4-0-2 vs Moore 36-2

Sonner 41-0 vs HEndrich 31-5

Walton 38-1 vs Guerrier 38-4

SEMIFINALS

Sonner 41-0 over Moore 36-2

Dull 34-0 over Walton 38-1

FINALS

Dull 34-0 over Sonner 41-0

 

OVERVIEW

Another deep weight class here…Hendrich is a returning state qualifier and all his losses are to Dull x3, Gray from Delta 1-0, and Guerrier 3-1. He can easily pull the win out from Sonner. I don’t see Guerrier pulling the upset on Walton but remember a few years ago when Lee was upset by Bethel and the crowd went wild? anything can happen! Dull and Walton will be a preview of a possible state finals match.

Dalton Craig is the real deal at 126 he keeps closing the gap on Rooks iv seen both lee and Craig wrestle (not each other) all year I take Craig in this can't look past this kid.

Yeah I don't disagree with you. It will be a good match. Craig is a returning SQ and has the edge. But, mater Dei always has surprising wins at semi state.

126 is just loaded and only 4 punch their ticket. Lee(EMD) has been exceptional since Team state with decisive wins over Willis(Ca). He'll be tested in the ticket round against a tough Craig(JC). The question is, which Lee shows up the before or after Team state. On the other side of the bracket in ticket round is Rooks(CE) vs Willis(Ca). Can Willis rebound from the Lee loss and get past a very tough Rooks?

My 4 punching their ticket

Lee,Hunt,Mulkey,Rooks

Personally I'm thinking sooner vs Walton in the finals but sooner has to get threw a tough Hendrich first Hendrich imo is the 4th best at this weight class in the semi state its gonna be a good match.

Navy already has a good start to the Darkhorse list with his review of the opening rounds. I'm sure after TripleB's Report tonight we will have a few others lower to non-ranked wrestlers who may just have the particular skill set and draw necessary to make it into the Top 4.

OVERVIEW

I think we will see some upsets here. Wilson and Brewer meet in the ticket round and before last weekend I would have said Brewer, but after Stock put the hammer on Brewer, it’s up in the air! The Stock boys are wrestling lights out as of late! I think Brewer gets his bearings back this week and makes a run.

OVERVIEW

I think everyone will be watching this weight come together. There really isn’t a bad match throughout the matches. You would have thought Vanhorn was a LOCK but Stock slayed the giant and showed everyone he is beatable. The top 4 can be flipped in any order. I have Cicciarelli losing first round but he can easily place 3rd. Very deep weight here…

Dull 34-0 over Walton 38-1

FINALS

Dull 34-0 over Sonner 41-0

 

OVERVIEW

Another deep weight class here…Hendrich is a returning state qualifier and all his losses are to Dull x3, Gray from Delta 1-0, and Guerrier 3-1. He can easily pull the win out from Sonner. I don’t see Guerrier pulling the upset on Walton but remember a few years ago when Lee was upset by Bethel and the crowd went wild? anything can happen! Dull and Walton will be a preview of a possible state finals match.

 

Good stuff.  A couple of tweaks are needed.  At 145, you have Webb vs Coyle in the ticket round (correct) and again in the semis.  If Webb beats Coyle, he'll face the survivor of Happe/Osho/Wathen.  And at 152 you have Thomas listed in both ticket round matches.  Easy mistakes to make when juggling so many names.  Love all the write ups and insight!
