Recommended Posts

Western Indiana Conference

Schools: Brown County, Cascade, Cloverdale, Edgewood, Greencastle, Indian Creek, North Putnam, Northview, Owen Valley, South Putnam, Sullivan, West Vigo

106#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Noah Gardner, Edgewood  ; Preston Fox, Cascade ; Mark Roberts, Greencastle ; Josh Scaggs, Sullivan

Junior, Noah Gardner (ranked #17) seems to be the man to beat in this weight class.  Freshman, Preston Fox and Sophomore, Mark Roberts should battle it out in the semi-finals for chance to face Gardner in the finals.    

 

113#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Logan Carrington, Greencastle ; Tucker Kirkhoff, Owen Valley ; Keith Holder, West Vigo ; Bradley Stewart, Edgewood

Freshman, Logan Carrington and Junior, Bradley Stewart should meet in one semi-final & Freshman, Tucker Kirkhoff and Freshman, Keith Holder in the other.     Carrington and Kirkhoff should meet in the finals.  Carrington and Kirkhoff met earlier this year with Carrington getting the upper hand, can he do it again?

 

120#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Jay Orman, Edgewood  ; Johnathan Otte, West Vigo ; Braeden Wharton, Northview ; Jacob Fox, Greencastle

Sophomore, Jay Orman should meet Freshman, Jacob Fox in the semi-finals. Freshman Johnathon Otte and Freshman Braeden Wharton should meet in the other semi-final.  Otte and Wharton faced off in early December, Otte came out on top then.  Orman and Otte should be in the Finals.

 

126#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Seth Rorhbach, West Vigo ; Zach Lane, Edgewood ; Jacob Baker, Greencastle ; Kenneth Eason, Brown County

Sophomores, Seth Rorhbach & Kenneth Eason should be in the semis on the top side of the bracket, but Eason shouldn’t look past Cloverdale, Freshman Jordan Opiela.  Senior, Zach Lane and Sophomore, Jacob Baker should meet on the bottom side, to battle it out for a chance to meet Rorhbach in the finals.  Rorhbach and Lane in the finals should be a great match and I expect it to be a toss-up.

 

132#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Zach Tussey, Owen Valley ; Zane Sullivan, Edgewood ; Owen Sego, Indian Creek ; Cauy Thomas, Greencastle

NONE of the ten wrestlers in this bracket have a losing record.  Senior, Zach Tussey and Junior, Cauy Thomas should meet in one semi-final for the chance to meet the winner the other semi-final of Senior, Zane Sullivan (ranked #15) and Sophomore, Owen Sego.  Both Semi-Finals and the finals should be AWESOME.  The winner of this bracket, should earn #1 seed next week at sectionals when most of the meet each other again.   I’m bias in the weight class, so I’m not making any predictions.

 

138#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Brad Trietsch, Indian Creek ; Brach Carrington, Greencastle ; Jarrel Sholar, West Vigo ; Tyler Paul, North View

Trietsch is having a phenomenal Senior season and should meet the winner of the Freshman matchup of Brach Carrington and Jarrel Sholar in the finals.  I think the Senior will to much for either Freshman.

 

145#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Austin Heckman, Edgewood ; Gabe Pitzulo, Indian Creek ; Brandon Smith, Sullivan ; Austin Hudson, Cascade

Juniors Austin Heckham & Gabe Pitzulo should square off in the finals after defeating Seniors, Austin Hudson and Brandon Smith in the Semi’s.  The Heckham / Pitzulo mtch should be a great. Who will come out on top?

 

152#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Jacob Scott, North Putnam ; Blake Willis, Cloverdale ; Bryce Woods, Indian Creek ; Wesley Gates, Cascade

On the top of the bracket Senior, Jacob Scott should face Senior, Wesley Gates.  Gates will have to get past Sophomore, Anthony Rubbinacci first.  The bottom of the bracket Senior, Blake Willis and Junior, Bryce Woods should square off.   Scott is the favorite, but will the winner of Willis \ Woods have enough to get past him in the finals?

 

160#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Trace Thomas, Greencastle ; Briar Sollars, West Vigo ; Noah Minor, Northview ; Alex Tran, Indian Creek.

Junior, Trace Thomas and Senior, Alex Tran should face in one semi-final and Senior, Briar Sollars and Sophomore, Noah Minor in the other, with Sollars winning the last time these two met.  I expect a Thomas / Sollars final, but don’t sleep on Minor.

 

170#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Wes Bedwell, Sullivan ; Dillon Binnion, North Putnam ; Dalton Butler, Cascade ; Matt Archer, Edgewood

Senior, Matt Bedwell and Sophomore, Matt Archer face off one side and Senior, Dillon Binnion and Junior, Dalton Butler on the other.  Anyone of these four can take this weight class, who wants it the most?

 

182#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Cade Winslow, Greencastle ; Tony Hall, Indian Creek ; Reuben Edwards, North Putnam ; Bryce Bault, Owen Valley

Junior, Bryce Bault will have to get past follow Junior, Steven Denny on his way semi-finals to meet Senior, Cade Winslow.  Junior, Tony Hall and Senior, Reuben Edwards should meet in the other semi-final.  Winslow and Hall should advance to the finals, where anything can happen.

 

195#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Grant Goforth, Indian Creek ; Levi Mullins, Brown County ; Nicholas Theis, South Putnam ; Matt McVey, West Vigo

Senior, Grant Goforth (ranked #5) is should come out on top in this bracket.  He should see Junior, Matt McVey in the semi-finals and Senior, Levi Mullins in the finals.  Goforth and Mullins have wrestled twice this year already, Goforth coming away with major decision wins both times.

 

220#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Kenton William, Sullivan ; Austin Stockall, Greencastle ; Kole Williams, Edgewood ; Tanner Louk, North Putnam.

Sophomores Kenton Williams and Austin Stockall should meet in the finals.  Willimas will will have to get past Junior, Tanner Louk and Stockall will have to get past Junior, Kole Williams, neither of which will be an easy task.   Anything can happen at 220.

 

285#

Top 4 seeds (in order)

Jordan Headdy, Edgewood ; Ethan Vinardi, West Vigo ; Cameron Elmore, Indian Creek ; Darnell Bennett, South Putnam.

Senior, Jordan Headdy and Junior, Darnell Bennett should fight it out for a spot in the finals.  As should Senior, Ethan Vinardi and Sophomore, Cameron Elmore.  Elmore will have to get past, Senior, Dalton Will first.  We should see a Headdy / Elmore final, but a “fat man” roll can shake-up this weight class.

The team race should be between teams, Greencastle, Edgewood and Indian Creek.  Both Greencastle and Edgewood have nine wrestlers seeded 1-4 and Indian Creek is close behind with eight wrestlers seeded 1-4.  Edgewood holds the lead with four #1 seeds and Greencastle with three #1’s and Indian Creek with two #1’s.  This tournament will be won (or lost) in the wrestle-back.  Which team has the most guys fight their way back to be on the podium?

Edgewood should win the team title by a landslide with Indian Creak the only challenger to them. Conference is VERY down this year. Look for IC and EDG to dominate

106-Gardner

113-Carrington/Stewart

120-Orman or Otte

126-Rorhbach or Lane

132-WOW. Very tough weight class!

1 SEED- Tussey went 27-8 last year and was a ticket rounder

2 SEED-Sullivan went 29-10 and was a state qualifier

3 SEED-Sego went 30-3 and was a ticket rounder

4 SEED- Thomas went 35-5 and was a regional qualifier from arguably the toughest regional (got beat 13-2 by Ty Mills in sectionals)

All four will likely be wrestling at semi state. Tussey has been around forever and is capable of winning this weight. Sullivan is battle tested and is more than capable of winning this weight. Sego is coming off an upset last year in the ticket round and im sure that fire is burning fast! Sego is capable of winning this weight. Thomas is the relative unknown but won 35 matches last year and if he wins this weight I wouldn’t be surprised. I am a big supporter of SOS and comparing results. I will take Sullivan to win, Tussey second, Sego third, and Thomas fourth. Matt Gimson beat Sego 17-5 and Sullivan 8-3. Plus, Edgewood wrestles a difficult schedule.  Best weight class by far in the WIC

138-Triesch

145-The second best weight. I can see any of the top 5 winning.  Heckman is the safe pick but if he doesn’t win I wont be surprised.

152-any of the top 3 can win it.

160-Any of the top 6 can win it but if Trace Thomas is on his A game he will smoke the field.

170-Bedwell and Archer top two in this weight

182-Winslow’s to lose

195-Gofourth pins his way through

220-William, Williams, Stockewall top 3

285-Meh, Heady wins
