    Most wins in a Season

    The most with today's rules is 66 BEFORE the stat series 6 single duals 6 two-point events that are all two-day 10 match events It's not likely, but still possible. Add in 3 matches from sectional, 3 from regional, 4 from semi-state and state and you get 82. FYI, I didn't have to take my shoes off to count!

    I think they are still getting things figured out with redshirts and the weights. He won his initial wrestle-off at 141, but another kid who has been 149 may be dropping to 141 and Ty lost that match at a 146 catch-weight. He's a tiny 141 and would probably drop to 133 if the coaches thought that was in the team's best interest, but I know they are trying to bulk him up. He wants to be in the starting lineup and we'll just have to compare the results over the next several tournaments and see what shakes out before our dual season starts. Either way, just glad he's back on the mat and ready to take his lumps (and give some!) while he adjusts to the college style.

    We went from 51 down to 50. I'm surprised some of them stuck around. Our feeder league has 70-90 per year for k-8, but then during middle school season another 20 will come out. Our last couple freshman classes have been 12-15. On our current team we have 10 seniors, 10 juniors, 15 sophomores, and 15 freshman. The kid we had quit was a freshman.

    How Many Wrestlers?

    Wheeler high school is currently at 32, I have a few that are not allowed to practice until physical are turn in. I believe my real number is at 26-28. I will know in a few weeks but I’m usually good on keeping everyone who steps on my mats. This is actually the highest numbers we had. Full line up, With a 14 that I had for a least 2-3 years so I have a nice core. Wheeler only having 531 kids enrolled , and only on our 7th year of having this program. And we are finalizing our plans for our new wrestling room. Things are moving forward in the right direction.

    IU vs Purdue

    I gotta give it to Purdue this year. IU is getting some young talent, but they're still young. Purdue returns a lot of experience, including bring back 6 national qualifers to IUs one, two of those who ended up in the blood round. IU has been making moves, but so has Purdue. Ersland has a pound for pound ranked kid coming in from PA in Gerit Neinjhuis coming in, as well as a nationally ranked Jake Rundell.

    Brayden Littell injury

    Even though I am on here daily I never log in And leave remarks the last time I did Was to tell everybody that Brayden would not be finishing his freshman year due to moving back to center Grove And unfortunately that is why I am on here today in preparing for super 32 Brayden Tore the ACL in his left knee And requires surgery which means this is the Official end of his high school career Recovery time takes us into the summer There is no doubt in my mind that if all the obstacles were not thrown in his way he could have done so much more in high school His one and only full season resulted in an undefeated state champ We have spoken To Ohio and they are still honoring his scholarship so there is no doubt that you will hear his name again in the wrestling community This is a hard pill to swallow we will lick our wounds and battle forward And please grammar police keep your comments to yourself Preciate everybody who has supported him Look for him to take over the mac conference in the next couple years

    I have been asked recently by coaches, and have had some discussion with some officials about the new rule that went into effect this year about Headgear only having 1 manufacturers logo on them. The IHSAA recently told the officials that the new rule was going into effect despite the fact that Cliff Keen, Adidas, and Asics all had 2 logos on their headgear and that schools would have to mark logos out with a sharpie or cover them up with tape etc etc. Today I got word, through Adidas Wrestling, and saw a copy of a letter from the NFHS to Adidas Wrestling, that states the new rule would NOT be going into effect this season because the manufacturers of headgear have not had time to comply with the new rules. The information has been sent to the IHSAA. I assume they may notify everyone officially on this. If anybody has any questions, feel free to email me at eisports@sigecom.net Jeff Schaefer E.I.

    Is Indiana's wrestling talent decreasing?

    I think that forfeits plays a big part in the health of the sport. We saw a lot of teams last year (us included) with rosters in the 2-8 range. A healthy wrestling state does not look like top teams having unprecedented success and the bottom third of teams struggling to fill half of their weight classes. At least not through the lens I am using.

    Triples with TripleB

    Our newest weekly article is a quick hit look at the week ahead and a recap of the previous week. TripleB will give you three things you need to know, three events to watch for this week, and three questions with someone in wrestling. 3 Things You Need to Know 1. New Coaches look to make an impact 40 programs have new coaches at the helm this season, including 5 ranked teams. will it be business as usual or will there be a disruption in the force?? #7 1A Eastern(Greentown)- Zach Pence #2 1A Southridge- Kurt Collins #18 Franklin- Jim Tonte #17 Portage- Andrew Bradbury #5 Warren Central- Matt Krulik 2. Post Season Dynasties There’s dominant, then there’s #PainTrain dominant. Brownsburg is a phenomenal 16-0 at IHSWCA Dual Team State Championships and have won the last 4 in a row. Can the Bulldogs add a ring to their thumbs this year?? Brownsburg Coach Darrick Snyder, “At Brownsburg we take a lot of pride in our performance at dual state. We want to be the best team in the state. We put a huge emphasis on dual state because we know that shows the best team” Cathedral needed 4 leaf clovers and all the luck of the Irish last year as Jordan Slvika and Elliott Rodgers turned in monumental efforts to lock up individual state championships and help Cathedral rally for a 3rd consecutive big old Indiana plaque at Bankers Life. Will the luck of the Irish be on their side for a fourth consecutive title? Indianapolis Cathedral Coach Sean McGinley, “Look for the Irish to struggle a bit out of the gate. However, if we do our jobs and keep getting better each week, by tournament time we feel we will be one of the few teams that people are talking about with a chance to bring home a team state championship.” 3. How will the football runs impact early season matches? 7 of the top 10 preseason ranked teams are still alive as Indianapolis Cathedral, Evansville Mater Dei, Warren Central, Roncalli, Carmel, Merriville, and Hobart all played in regional games on Friday night. Will these ranked hammers stumble out of the gate as teams patiently wait for football players to wrap up, get healed, and get in wrestling shape? Look for the holiday tournaments before some of these teams are fully loaded. Merrillville, Carmel, Mount Vernon(Fortville), Hobart, and Adams Central will all be playing this week at semi-state. 3 Feature Matches 1. Opening dual of the season! The Battle for the Paddle; Madison at Southwestern Since the incarnation of the Battle, Madison has ran the tables winning all nine duals. What this match has lacked is over all dual excitement as forfeits on both sides have been an issue, but the scuttlebutt is that this year both teams will be bringing full line ups into the Dual and Southwestern is hoping to keep the paddles in Hanover! 2. Crown Point vs Portage Portage graduates 4 state qualifiers and new coach Andrew Bradbury jumps right into the frying pan in this Region kick off dual. Returning state qualifiers Ty Haskins and Damari Dancy will look to keep this dual close but on paper Crown Point appears to be too strong. Lead by returning state champ Jesse Mendez, with 5 freshman and 2 sophomores in starting lineup, the Bulldogs will look to rack up bonus team points early and often! 3. Capital City Classic Through the years Triple C is one of the toughest opening weekend tournaments with teams like Beech Grove, Perry, Warren, Bloomington North, Mishawaka, and North Central winning the very first one. Perry Meridian looks to be the front-runner for the 38th annual Capital City Classic.This years line up includes - Beech Grove, Franklin Central, Greenwood, Indian Creek, Jeffersonville, Perry Meridian, Plainfield, Westfield 3 Questions with Mike Reiser 1. What is your background in wrestling? I wrestled for Coach Jim Wadkins at Calumet High school. I graduated in 2001 and was a part of some successful teams. We were three-time team sectional champs, two-time regional champs, and two-time Lake Athletic Conference champs. Individually I was a two-time sectional champ and two-time semi state qualifier. 2. Why do rankings, it seem very stressful and thankless, what drives you to do rankings? There are times that the rankings can be stressful, but I learned early on that you can’t make everyone happy. I love doing the rankings both semi state and state. I think it is the best job in the state it has given me a lot of opportunities to broadcast and do the gorilla radio. 3. What do you do when you are not neck deep in wrestling? When I am not doing the rankings and going over results, I work my actual job which is a Project Manager for an Environmental Company. I also coach my 2 daughters in softball which is becoming a full time job also.

    It’s hard to refute how good Brownsburg is. With the incredible work ethic and conditioning Coach Snyder infuses into the program and all the upper class leadership, it’s no wonder they don’t win an IHSAA title every single year. It is also really good to see programs like Mishawaka creep back into the Top20. When a high quality coach leaves town, it typically takes decades to replace. Glad to see the Cavemen competitive again.

    56 Wrestlers if I understood the preview correctly. That's a big room! A lot of guys ultimately competing for 10 spots. Lots of IN kids on the roster. Let's hope they have a great season!

    Platteville Wis.- University of Wisconsin-Plattville sophomore Alexander Strueder (Fisher, Indiana) scored a takedown in sudden victory to win the 157 pound championship in the annual Super 8 Invitaional in the Pioneers’ Williams Fieldhouse. With the score tied 3-3 late in the third period, Strueder needed a take down due to the point for riding time that Jessy Diaz of the University of Dubuque would have been rewarded. Stueder got the take down and what was thought to be for the championship as time ran out. The officials got together and determined that Strueder let go of Diaz with one second on the clock and rewarded Diaz with a point for escaping and the extra point for riding time to force sudden victory period. Starting in neutral position, Stueder made short work as the aggresser in the sudden victory period recording the takedown 10 seconds into the period to officaly be crowned the champion. “Coach (Mike) DeRoehn always preaches to fight your butt off, how hard can you fight. I gave up a takedown early, but came back and got the takedown with a second left, going in to overtime I knew I was prepared, we been working our butts off in the (wrestling) room,” Strueder said. “I knew I had an opportunity to go out there and make a statement and not leave it in the hands of the officials and take the match in my hands. I went back to what was working for me, my double underhooks, and took him down and that was the match.” “Mindset was the difference maker for Strueder today. Throughout the tournament, he did a great job of listening to the coaches and then executed some crucial in-match technical adjustments,” DeRoehn said. “It was outstanding to see him keep his composure under pressure in the championship match and we’re really proud of his fight out there today.” The Pioneers return to the mat Nov. 20 at UW-Whitewater.

    In his last two years in high school, Carson only gave up offensive points to one person here in Indiana. That was the in that pretty rough match Friday night his junior season (it was bad). With that said, he’s pretty tough to score on. He wrestled very conservatively this year at state. Just wanted the title. But... I personally think Rypel was ranked number one in the nation for a reason and has to be favored. Just honored to have my son be mentioned in this conversation after he has moved on. He’s really doing well at Ohio. Coaches have expressed that they really like him and he’s doing better then they even thought he would. Him Slivka and Mosconni all should be wrestling at the Michigan State open the first week of November. Saw all of them last week and they are all doing great! Bottom line.. our studs are moving on to D1 and doing great. It would be cool if Slivka and Mosconni would clean their room tho!

    Do you really think this guy is going to tell his kids a story about how he was "ONLY down by 10" when he got pinned by Jason Nolf as if that will be his greatest accomplishment? Lol wow, I hope not. The fact of the matter is when you are in a wrestling match, taunting an oppenent is unnecessary, especially when you're losing...
