Small School Representation

Recommended Posts

I didn't see it in the information center article, but I was wondering what are the numbers for small schools this year? How many of those schools are coming to the state finals and how many wrestlers did they have qualify? I would typically consider 2A/1A small, but you could make a case for 2A, I guess, but if someone has the stats, please post them.

Mater Dei has 5.  They are in a lower class in football than several of these.  They can't be counted out just because they choose to compete with the big boys.


That's the price you pay for not being beholden to geographical boundaries like 97% of the schools in Indiana.

I'd love it if just to prove a point, the mater dei staff moved to a public school of similar size just to see how quickly they got back to being a powerhouse.

You can't just pin the Mater Dei tradition on their high school coaches. They have MANY former wrestlers that coach the youth kids at their elementaries and such. You'd have to uproot quite a few people. The Mater Dei program is a well oiled machine that pumps out top wrestlers year after year.


As with any top program there are too many people to name that are the reasons for their success.

You are grossly misinformed as to how their program works if you think the main cogs are the high school coaches from the time they are 9th graders until their senior year. I think there is a little more to their program than that.

I suppose I wasn't clear, but I meant everyone from top to bottom. It was more a statement of how ridiculous it is that people still harp on Mater Dei for recruiting when anyone who has ever tried to build a program knows how much work the coaches of any high level program put in.


My post was meant as a compliment to a great program. Sorry it wasn't taken as such
