  1. First off we have to be very thankful we are having a season. It doesn't look promising for the states that have moved their seasons and we are extremely lucky here. I wasn't sure we would get through a month of the football season. I wasn't sure we would get through a month of the wrestling season, but here we are. We all want fans at our events to cheer on the kids. This year has been really weird without fans in the stands. Last night was our first home meet with fans and it felt different and nice to have to people yelling and screaming. With everything else going

  2. I'd be willing to watch state from the North Pole with the Connersville Bowl's internet connection if it meant my kids had the opportunity to compete at state. I'm not a fan, so maybe I don't understand, but having wrestling in any capacity this season is a blessing.

  4. The belief of 'cold weather' killing the virus must apply when ice is on the floor. With that I believe there are two options in order to have 50% attendance. (1) put the mats on ice instead of hardwood or (2) give everyone in attendance free snow cones all day. I am a problem solver.

  5. Today was an awesome day of wrestling at the Team State Duals. I was at the 3A tournament and was checking results all day from the other 2 locations. The team aspect of a good dual is one of the best parts of wrestling. Watching wrestlers sacrifice to cut a few extra pounds or willing to bump up a weight class to sacrifice for their team to try and get the win is really selfless. Watching teammates erupt from a pin and also watching teammates congratulate their teammate for getting beat by 13 and saving 2 team points is fun to watch. In a year where we were told to stay away from

  7. Faulkens expressed that they are not changing the venue no matter how much they take a bath on it. He said they are not going to take away from the athletes experience. I almost shed a tear.

  8. Mattyb, Thanks for the nice comments about Alec. He was behind Cole Ross as a freshman but kept plugging away and cracked the lineup as a Sophomore. Has some bigger goals now and hopefully with some more performances like this weekend to get noticed. I agree with Y2CJ41, this weight class has a ton of tough kids that should all be in contention come February.

  10. February 26, 2011 Mater Dei vs. Crown Point For the fans, it was the worst-possible draw. Top-ranked Crown Point and second-ranked Mater Dei were paired for the first round of Team State. For the first-ever meeting between the schools, Crown Point brought a star-studded lineup. Headliner Jason Tsirtsis was fresh off his third State Title. Tsirtsis’ practice partner, Eric Roach, had just won his second State Championship. Tyler Kral had finished third, while Josh Flamme was sixth. Jake Fuqua and Dusty Schurg qualified for the State Meet. Crown Point won the Team State ti

  16. I’ll again defer to the progressive stance of the IHSAA for football and continue along that thought process. They allowed 2 tickets per participant. Though they were outside venues, the venues were still smaller than both semi-state and state venues for wrestling minus Lucas Oil and perhaps a 6A stadium. So, my math says 16 wrestlers X 14 weights plus two coaches each is still under 1000 attendees. Throw in referees, table help, trainers, perhaps even concessions, and you have around 1500 per tourney venue. Looks like the two biggest non-coliseums in Indiana are East Chicago and New

  21. I don't know if others will consider this weird or not... but I remember my son's first wrestling tournament loss ever, it was to Tyler in his 2nd grade year at the southmont youth freestyle tournament. I remember the old staging system and his dad and I walking our two young boys out toward the mat having a friendly conversation with fatherly anxiety with each other. Amazing how the time flies by and these little boys grow into men so fast. Congratulations and best wishes to Tyler and the Conley family.

  22. I remember making a drive down to evansville some 7-8 years ago with my boy to get him some good matches in a youth tournament at MD. recall a great match with my son and Cole Ross followed by Alec giving my boy a royal beat down on the day. Drake was on several of Bailey's outlaw's teams with both Ross and Freeman through the middle school years that travelled across the country. I've admired watching both these Mater Dei wrestlers over the years. Both have a lot of talent and heart and will go far and represent Indiana well in the years to come.

  24. There is nothing in the calendar year that I look forward to more than IHSAA state finals. This year would’ve been my 23rd straight. It makes me sick just thinking about not being there as a fan. But the fact that we are still going to have it, and athletes will get a shot at a state title is all that matters. I am really impressed with the IHSAA and the way they have navigated through the sports seasons thus far.

    Team State Preview

    I have been very lucky to meet so many people and gain so much input from coaches and fans across the state over the last seven years with my involvement with the Team State tournament. I hope everyone is as excited as I am for Saturday. Here is my preview of the tournament for the Decatur Daily Democrat: https://www.decaturdailydemocrat.com/content/team-state-showcase-states-best

  27. How much more/better training is he getting by not wrestling for Penn? He’s got state level guys in his weight range and his coach literally coaches a wrestler at worlds. Mendez has the same aspirations and wrestles a season. All elite guys have that aspiration, and 99.99% of them wrestle scholastically.

    Dark Horses

    Anyone got any dark horse picks this year? Here are mine. 106- I think Seng can win it all, coached him this summer and he’s the real deal. Think he’s always been undersized until this year really. Also, think Tishner from Western can place high and compete with anyone. 113- This one is tough. Outside the top 4 I can’t see anyone else winning and throw Cottey into the mix and it’s a party. I think Demarco can shock some people in the state series. 120- I think Tony Wood from Jay County is very solid and could place. I also like Preston Teusch from HN to place high. 126-

These are guys that are always in the mix producing solid victories and results.

If not this would be the first one I’ve missed in 2 decades. Really hoping the IHSAA and bankers life can find a way!

    Koontz going down to 132 makes that weight even more stacked then it already was. Returning 8th placer at 132 is ranked 14th! wow... 15/20 have qualified at state and 13 have placed.
