    Rankings always provide a great insight to the best of the best in the state. Arguments always ensue on who is the best and who should be ranked. Over the years our rankings have proven to be the best out there. On top of that our rankings are locked before the first whistle at sectional and they do not take into account the semi-state draws. This year only 9 wrestlers that advanced to state were not in our state or semi-state rankings. We also set a new record for most state ranked wrestlers advancing to state with 180 or just over 80%! Thanks to our rankings gurus Mike Reiser, Caleb Spires, Howard Cottey, and Dustin Bentz for another great season.

    This may be the toughest New Castle Semi State I have ever seen.  There will be 20 or more ranked wrestlers staying home next week.  As always, brutal ticket round match ups with two top 10 ranked wrestlers.  5 #1 Ranked Wrestlers in the tournament.

    Potential Match-ups
    #5 Bryce Lowery vs #19 Romelo Williams ticket round
    Lowery has been on fire in his freshman campaign and is looking to take his first trip to state with his older brother.
    #9 Evan Dickey vs #6ss Keaton Morton
    These two have not wrestled this year.  Morton has an awkward style that could give Dickey issues, but Dickey has experience on the floor at New Castle.
    #3 Suhas Chundi vs #7ss Nathan Smith
    Chundi has been here before and the podium at state and it looks like he should have a return trip.
    #7 Johnson vs #5 Lowery
    Rematch from sectionals in the semi finals.

    #8 Griffin Ingalls Fishers
    Potential Match-ups
    #11 Carrender vs #4 Anthony ticket round
    Anthony has had two incredible seasons so far, but Senior Carrender will be a tough out.  His style is awkward and he is extremely strong.  Anthony knocked him off in ticket round last year.
    #8 Wolf vs #8ss Ingalls first round
    Haven’t seen much about this match-up.  Ingalls has a win over Wilburn and has been competitive all year.  Winner has the privilege of #1 Alex Cottey in the ticket round. 
    #10 Wilburn vs #12 Hooper ticket round.
    These two have had 2 opportunities to wrestle but it hasn’t happened yet.  Wilburn has beat Carrender twice which Hooper lost to in a major decision.  Hooper pinned Ingalls who beat Wilburn early in the year.
    #14 Glithero vs #4 Anthony Semis
    Glithero is coming off a huge win over Alex Cottey and Anthony is coming off two straight losses to Hooper.  Should be a good one.
    1st Round Picks
    Glithero over Ellingwood
    Driver over Necessary

    #14 Jacob Simone- Hamilton Southeastern
    #19 Brevan Thrine- New Castle
    Semi-State Ranked Wrestlers
    #6 Antonio Jefferson LC
    Potential Match-ups
    #1 Seltzer vs #14 Simone. 
    Two state place winners do battle to see who gets a chance to go back to Bankers Life.  Simone had Eldred on the ropes last week and doesn’t want to end his career at New Castle.
    #6SS Jefferson vs Thrine first round
    Thrine has had an amazing freshman campaign with his only loss coming by major to Christian White.  Jefferson has been here before and lost the last two years.  Senior versus freshman.
    Winner gets #7 Christian White
    White would be the favorite over Thrine.  Jefferson may pull the second 4 over 1 here and make the ticket round even crazier.
    #13 Perry vs #10 Hughes
    These two have wrestled several times over the years with Hughes taking the last one at MIC.  Perry is coming off back to back wins over White as well as wins over Glithero and Jefferson who have defeated Hughes.  But Hughes tech falled AJ Gunn from Carmel who has a win over Perry. 
    #1 Seltzer vs #7 White semis.
    #4 Eldred vs #10/#13 Hughes/White

    Semi-State Ranked Wrestlers
    #7 Jeremiah Henderson- Lawrence North
    Potential Match-ups
    #19 Toole vs Brandon first round
    Brandon took Pierson down at regionals and is a very hard nosed wrestler.  Wouldn’t be surprised to see an upset here.  Followed with a ticket round with either super frosh Searcy from East Central or Jeremiah Henderson who has had an up and down year but is dangerous.
    #5 Lowery vs #16 Gonzalez ticket round
    Gonzalez has kept matches close with elite level guys all year and had a great Al Smith.  Lowery shouldn’t overlook him.
    #20 Langeman vs Dennison
    Dennison has had a great year at 33-1, but I suspect Carmel will have Langeman ready.
    #5 Lowery vs #6 Pierson Finals
    Lowery won at Marion County 1-0.  Should be another great battle.

    #8 Hudson Harreld- Zionsville
    Potential Match-ups
    #7 Beatty vs #16 Brown ticket round. 
    Two state qualifiers battling it out to see who goes to the Bank.  Beatty had a great regional beating both #2 Koontz 7-0 and #17 Slivka to take home the title.
    #10 Goodwin vs Frazier.  4 over 1 potential here. 
    Goodwin had a brutal regional with Beatty, Koontz, Slivka and himself.  He has a win over Frazier over the summer.  Winner gets #9 Wilson to punch a ticket.  Wilson only has 7 matches this season due to injury but has been to state before.
    #8ss Harreld vs #17 Slivka ticket round. 
    Slivka was a regional champion year that didn’t make it to state.  Look for him to punch a ticket.
    #12 Bryant vs #2 Koontz ticket round. 
    This is the premier ticket round match as both of these kids should be placers.  Bryant has dominated since dropping to 132 with his only loss being Beatty.

    #6 David Page- Roncalli
    #8 Max Naselroad- Alexandria
    Potential Match-ups
    #2 Bailey vs #8 Ross. 
    Brutal matchup of two kids that both should place at state.  Both wrestlers have lost in the ticket round twice in their careers.  Bailey lost to Beatty from Warren Central last year and Seth Johnson as a freshman.  Ross has lost to Wilkerson and Caleb Oliver.  Should be some fireworks In this one.
    #2Bailey/#8 Ross vs #7 Mattingly Semis

    #8 Brady Mckivitz- Perry Meridian
    Potential Match-ups
    #9 Dunasky vs #7 Anderson ticket round. 
    This should be a great ticket round matchup.  Dunasky is trying to be Guerins first ever state qualifier.  He lost to Warren Centrals Antwaun Graves last year in the ticket round.  Anderson has wins over Luhmann, Mckivitz, Stewart, Shafer, and Wilkerson.
    #8ss Mckivitz vs #14 Phillips first round. 
    Mckivitz has had a solid season with some solid wins and some losses in Perrys brutal schedule.  Luhmann is waiting in the wings for the winner for a ranked ticket round matchup.
    #17 Stewart vs #13 Shafer first round. 
    Stewart is a huge 145 but has taken a lot of losses.  Wolf had a great regional tournament overturning some losses from earlier in the year. 
    #1 Viduya vs #6 Wilkerson ticket round. 
    This is another brutal ticket round that leaves behind a projected state place winner.  Viduya has been on a different level this year.

    Bake'rs match count is not indicative of his skill.  Should be a great match followed with a ticket round date with #10 Bates.
    #3 Hall vs #6 Frejie ticket round. 
    This is a huge matchup.  Hall is trying to get back to state after losing to Leavell last year in the ticket round.  Frejie has been to the show several times and doesn’t want to end his career at New Castle. 
    #1 Coleman vs #8ss Vredeveld. 
    Centerville's only loss this year is to Bryer Hall in the Regional finals.  Coleman is looking to make his first trip to state after losing to Rodgers in the ticket round last year.

    Hayes has been a tough wrestler for years. McClain has been wrestling well winning the Marion County and MIC tournaments. 
    #14 McClain vs #20 Davis ticket round. 
    Davis is coming off a great Regional tournament and is rewarded with the higher ranked McClain in ticket round.
    #15 Roth vs #12 Akins. 
    Akins has to get through a very tough Goodner first from the Deaf school.  He pinned Hayes last week.  I could be wrong, but Akins might be the first state qualifier for Lutheran.
    #3 Rodgers vs #4 Noehre in semis to rematch the state finals from last year. 
    Their matchup earlier this year ended with a crazy funk roll from Rodgers for the win late in the third.

    Rodgers over Moore
    Williamson over Carr
    Noehre over Butterfield
    Mitchell over Lowe

    #8 Ty Welliever- Southmont
    Potential Match-ups
    #4SS Dale vs #8SS Welliever first round. 
    Winner gets #8 Harrington in the ticket round.  Harrington is a huge 170 after making the drop from 182 earlier in the year. 
    #9 Davin vs #15 Ragle ticket round. 
    Really tough ticket round for Ragle who was winning in Regional finals before getting thrown and pinned. 
    #6SS Poynter vs Mpole. 
    Mpole is an unbelievable athlete with a great story of how he came to the United States.  Winner has Malson/Bishop in ticket round.
    #7 Wagner vs #7ss Hiner. 
    These two have wrestled each other their whole lives.  Don’t expect Hiner to get blown out, he may even steal this ticket from Cathedral.

    McCloud has had a great season is looking to continue it against the Iron Bear’s son.  Ticket round matchup vs Filipovich who is also trying to get Lutheran to Bankers Life.
    #4 Warren vs #7SS Woodall. 
    Warren has two trips to state in two attempts.  Woodall is trying to match his brothers Middle School State Title last weekend.
    #16 Viel vs #20 Keesee first round
    Followed by a matchup with #13 Sharp in the ticket round.  This quarter bracket is brutal with 3 ranked wrestlers.

    #8 Richard Clevenger- New Palestine
    Potential Match-ups
    Other than Silas, this weight had 2 unranked regional champions and is wide open.
    #3 Farrell vs #12 Brooks ticket round. 
    Farrell has had a great season including taking Silas down at Connersville.  Brooks is incredibly athletic and is a tough matchup for anyone.
    #8SS Clevenger vs #4 Krummen
    Clevenger has had a great junior campaign including winning the brutal Perry Meridian regional.  Krummen just took his first loss to Allred last weekend.
    White vs McCloud
    Rematch from earlier in the year where White took a 7-5 decision home.  Followed by a matchup with Jacob Huffman from Cathedral.  I predict the winner of the first round match will knock out the Pendleton regional champ.
    #3 Farrell vs #1 Allred
    Rematch from Spartan Classic in finals.

    Potential Match-ups
    A lot of great matchups first and second round.  Most of the top dogs are separated until semi finals though.  Taylor and Van Beynen should be good.  Young and Smitley.
    #2 Webster vs #12 Guhl ticket round. 
    Webster has been on fire this year.  Guhl got a very unfortunate draw for having such a great season.
    #16 Hernandez vs #7SS Brown. 
    These two have wrestled 4 times this season.  Brown won the first one with Hernandez winning the next 3.  Should be a great first round matchup with winner getting Blaine Pierce from Richmond to go to the Bank.

    Just an fyi 
    I called the IHSAA and asked when they would release regional brackets. 
    after being on hold for two minutes, I was told it’s up to the respective school to release the brackets. 
    I called our regional host AD, he said the IHSAA says the schools can release them anytime after 1pm Tuesday. 
    They don’t do this with other sports. Why hold brackets? Can we get the rat to fix it?

    New Castle has to be the most stacked semi state of all four. If the ranked wrestlers don’t have any hiccups or bat matchups, the New Castle semi state could have almost every single weight with the nastiest finals matches. I can’t wait to watch that semi state! Am I right or wrong?

The event will take place March 14th, at Fitzgerald Fieldhouse on the University of Pittsburgh campus.  The dual meet will not have the 106-113-or heavyweight division.  Rather....it will be 120-220, and have 2 matches at 138 & 195.  Silas (#2 via Flo) will be squaring off against PA State Champ and Michigan commit Gage Garcia #3.
    Tremendous honor for Silas to be selected and represent Shenandoah High School, CIA Wrestling, Indiana Wrestling, as well as his future Nebraska Cornhuskers at this prestigious event.
