  1. When someone wins a sprinting event, we don’t look to see how many people ran the 100 meter dash in high school because we know the Olympic sprinter would smoke every single person in the world. Hildabrandt and Miracle would smoke almost every single woman in the world on the mat, and it’s a big pretty big world.

  2. The IHSAA has modified the travel restrictions! Per https://www.ihsaa.org/Portals/0/ihsaa/documents/news media/2021-22/062322.BasketballFormat.pdf The Committee approved modified restrictions on Indiana schools competing against schools from beyond the 300-mile travel limit. IHSAA schools will now be able to participate against out-of-state schools from beyond the 300-mile limit as long as they are in good standing with their state association, the venue is within the 300 mile limit, is and is sanctioned by the NFHS and IHSAA. Also, Indiana schools may now host out-of-state schools in Indiana from beyond the 300-mile limit as long as they are a member in good standing with their own state association and the event is sanctioned by the NFHS and IHSAA.

  3. Just wanted to jump in here. The rules for Community 1 and 2 are very clear. 17 wrestlers on your roster - 3 can be from another school system. We all have to load weight certification sheets to show school system and lowest permitted weight class. For middle school guys, I have to get a letter from middle school AD saying what middle school they attended and that it is a feeder to Brownsburg. No clue about other team’s situations but I believe they check paperwork. I’ve heard numerous stories from coaches about being called out if paperwork doesn’t seem legit. Doesn’t mean someone isn’t getting away with it. Just mean paperwork is required. Lastly, Disney isn’t about a “vacation” and matches for many of us. I’m not saying it’s Fargo, but it also isn’t playing with Mickey Mouse as I’ve heard some say. Many teams take it very serious. We will have fargo representation, but for the last couple of months at Brownsburg our guys have been training to win the Disney Duals. We took close to 20 Brownsburg Wrestlers there. The last two months we have had the best “open mats” we have had since the regular season. Our guys were motivated and we got better. I’ve never found any camp or tournament in over 20 years to better motivate my entire team than the Disney Duals. Snyder

  5. One of the greatest matches in recent memory and a CERTIFIED BANGER! It's a shame a full crowd didn't get a chance to see that one. Was there for it live and dem boyz THREW DAHN!!!!! Clocked an immediate 4.75/5 star rating (Generational Performance) from me. Brody Baumann's lat drop at the end was the cherry on top and solidified him as one of my favorite wrestlers to watch. One of the best state finals and overall wrestling matches I've ever seen. So fun with so many back and forth momentum swings. Dem boyz took us back to the Attitude Era with that one! Just going out there to bang!!!!

  6. With 2 matches left IN has enough of a lead to top IL and bringing home a 3rd place finish. Way to make the adjustment from the first encounter in the pool stage. From prior scores you could easily make the argument the squad would have had a close meet with 2nd place Iowa if their was a true second. Best finish in Schoolboy Freestyle history for IN too. Nice showing this weekend boys.

    Question for Coaches

    1. Mostly yes, basically anyone that I have had that was a qualifier since 2006 did some off-season. Note more on this later 2. Depends upon the kid. Some with a lot of experience and mat time at a younger age didn't need or require a lot. Some needed more, it's really dependent upon the kid. 3. Small if you aren't honing the skills. Things have changed drastically in the past 10-15 years. 4+ Much like anything in life, there is no "cookie-cutter" solution or even an easy way to analyze what is needed for each kid. Putting in time is always good, it's what you define as time. Some kids love to train and would rather just practice and do very little competing. Some love tournaments and will be going places every week. Some are a little of both. There are so many different avenues to stay crisp with wrestling in the off-season that it takes a great balance between training(RTC, home club, academies), competitions, camps, and even spending time in the weight room. Even playing another sport, especially a contact sport, will help a kid develop as an athlete. Many kids(and even coaches) like having something short term to work for. I really liked going to Disney and other June dual events because it kept something in front of the kids as a goal to work for. Working in May and June for November seems like ages away. As kids get older off-season competition may not be needed as much. Many kids have been through the grind since they were young and only need maybe a handful of off-season events to keep them hungry and ready. In general I have had a lot of kids that started early that we have lessened the load of competing or even training in the off-season. Some of those times burnout and hating the sport was creeping in and I let them go do other things and didn't bother them as I knew once the season came around they would be refreshed and ready to go. We all want our kids to be 24/7 dedicated to wrestling whether we want to admit it or not. At times it is needed to let them be kids, let them do other things, or even let them fail. The hardest thing to do as a parent/coach is to let a kid fail or see a kid fail when you know the potential is there for great success. Many of our best lessons are learned from failing.

  12. For MD i'd go: 106: Chip Elderkin or Gabe Zirkelbach 113: Schaefer 120: Rusty Head over Kevin Head 126: Macke 132: Nick Lee 138: Boarman 145: Craig Weinzapfel 152: Joe Lee 160: Coughlin 170: Baumann 182: Blake Maurer bumps up here 195: Sollars 220: Critchfield 285: VanWinkle Through my red/gold colored glasses I think MD wins at: 106 - both MD guys were big 10 wrestlers. They beat cottey 113 - I take Seltzer here but would be a great match up 120 - toss up 126 - Macke 132 - Lee 138 - toss up 145 - Weinzapfel 152 - Lee 160 - Coughlin 170 - Baumann 182 - Maurer (could be the best match of the dual) 195 - Sollars 220 - Critchfield 285 - Marion county

  14. Two matches left IN down 15 to NJ. Indiana Gold will end up runner-up which is still the best placement in Indiana Greco history (previous best 6th) I’m sure our last two guys are going to push as much as they can to help close the final score too. Then on to what is hopefully a great Freestyle showing, as well.

Even though the event is not held at Disney this year it still has attracted many top teams from around the country.

  33. The guy was dominating Gross until he got stuck in a bad situation. As a parent of a college wrestler, I’ve been really watching incoming kids over the last few years. Each class comes in and every kid is a state or national champ. The first few months in that actual college room and program is rough. Most kids struggle to score a point. Some of the kids make adjustments and put in the work to start and most don’t make it 4 years. Most are done after a year or two. My point is regardless of who you are… those first few months in any college program kids grow the most. I think that the Jesse that we saw putting on Gross will elevate his skills a few more notches starting now until November. He’s gonna to be a top contender out of the gate. And at that level staying healthy is tough. With all of that said.. if he elevates his skills, like I know he will before season starts and he’s 100 percent, you have to let that dude try to go get that title. I think he will wrestle unattached early on at opens like they all do. Then… first home meet… our dude bust out of the tunnel with the OSU singlet on.

  34. Random fantasy match-up I'd been thinking about. Haven't been here in awhile. Marion County All-Stars 2010s 106: Alex Cottey (Perry Meridian) 113: Zeke Seltzer (Cathedral) 120: Deondre Wilson (Warren Central) 126: Breyden Bailey (Cathedral) 132: Jared McKinley (Perry Meridian) 138: Brandon James (Perry Meridian), Tommy Cash (Lawrence North), Zach Melloh (Cathedral) 145: Cody LeCount (Perry Meridian) 152: Elliott Rodgers (Cathedral), Trent Pruitt (Warren Central) 160: Brian Harvey (Cathedral) 170: Dylan Lydy (Ben Davis), Noah Warren (Perry Meridian) 182: Blake Rypel (Cathedral) 195: Tristen Tonte (Warren Central/Perry Meridian), Katrell Moss (Warren Central) 220: Courvoisier Morrow (Warren Central), Dylan Faulkenburg (Cardinal Ritter) 285: Donte Winfield (Perry Meridian), Wesley Bernard (Cathedral) Evansville Mater Dei 106: Alec Freeman 113: Greg Schaefer 120: Kevin Head 126: Craig Macke, Scott Schaefer 132: Nick Lee 138: Blake Boarman 145: Matt Lee, Craig Weinzapfel 152: Matt Coughlin, Joe Lee, Dustin Nosko 160: Brody Baumann, Sam Wildeman, Eli Dickens 170: Blake Maurer 182: Gabe Sollars 195: Dane Maurer 220: Nathan Critchfield 285: Bill Trainer, Justin VanWinkle ...I'm not going to lie, as a Marion County guy, I'd be worried about this dual from just about start to finish. Heavyweight is the only weight I'd feel comfortable funny enough. Cottey has taken down Freeman in real life, but it was always close. Never saw Coach Schaefer wrestle, but from what I've been told, it was nasty, but Zeke is an absolute buzzsaw. Didn't see Kevin Head, but witnessed Deondre Wilson in real time, so I'll give the nod to the champ. Bailey versus Macke or Schaefer I'm sure would be gold considering Bailey's funkiness and supreme top game as compared to the scrappiness I've heard about the others. 132 would be a spectacle. 138, although Boarman is a champ, Brandon James, while not unstoppable, was the closest thing to it when he was on; Cash, a two-time champ with an unpredictable style, and Melloh is tough as nails, but Boarman is still a state champion who gave Jesse Mendez his closest battle in Indiana maybe in his entire career aside from Seltzer. 145, I have to give the nod to LeCount. Dude could adjust to anyone and was supreme in every position. 152, I don't see how EMD loses any of those match-ups, same with 160. 170 goes to the four-time champion. 182 I'll give Rypel, two-time champion and Super 32 champion. 195, I'll give slight edge to Marion County as Moss is a champion and Tonte is a three-time runner-up between two schools. 220 is Critchfield all day. Heavyweight, it's hard to bet against Winfield or Bernard. Lots of toss-up matches, but the ones EMD wins, I'm sure come with bonus because boy can them boys down south rack 'em up. All love to the homies in Vanderburgh County. Nothing but respect for the Wildcat program.

  35. When our travel rule recently changed, Ironman had already been closed for new entries for a while. They made an exception because of the late rule change in Indiana. Our ultimate goal is to bring our entire team. I agree with Joe on not bringing someone who is not ready, though. Crown Point has several more returning placers than us and beat us multiple times last year. That got them their whole team in, which we completely understand. After some discussion and negotiation, I got our number to 7 with the understanding our goal is to bring our entire team in the future. We saw at least a couple teams at Disney that I believe are bringing their entire team to ironman. We did well against both. We honesty just appreciate them working with us to get some of our guys in given the late change! Snyder

Very good wrestling from teams from all around the state (Avon, Columbus East, EMD, Tell City, Westfield, Ev North, North Posey, Edgewood, Bloomington S, Laf Jeff, TH North, Ev Mem and Owen Valley). The event was VERY well run and know they are looking to grow it in the years to come!

  47. Thanks for posting. Brought back some good memories. I got to compete in this event back in the day when I was a schoolboy, as it was just starting to become a huge event, and it was still held at Yorktown. Was fortunate to run the training camps and corner the 2010-14 teams with @swain358 we had a lot of fun coaching a bunch of young talent for those 7 days every June! There was so much talent on those teams, and it was fun to watch them grow up and go on to have great success in high school and college and internationally. It is sad to see this trip leave the state, as it was founded by Indiana in the 1990s.

  48. Freestyle and folk style are two different styles yes, but who at jesses age is doing what he is doing? Who is competing with the goats of the sport that hasn’t even hit 19 yet? jesse is amazing in neutral which I don’t see changing at all in college. Add on riding time from his rides? Definitely a contender.
