    Cathedral High School's team is shaping up to possibly be their best ever. They are ranked 42nd in the country with sophomore Zeke Seltzer ranked 15th per InterMat and dominated the IHSWCA State Duals in the 3A class and ran away with Al Smith, and I was wondering since they are a private school, would we ever see a time when Indiana allows private or independent schools to be in their own league? It would be much like how Texas has TAPPS, Pennsylvania has the PAIS, Virginia has VISAA, and Maryland has the MISAA, and so forth. If we had our own governing body for private and independent schools in Indiana free of travel restrictions, would it be interesting to see how a team like Cathedral fares at the National Preps tournament in Pennsylvania among others? Would it be a good way to create more depth or improve our talent pool in Indiana?

    New commish. Never know. IHSAA added the success factor to nullify P/Ps, but I don’t think it has been significant. Let’s not forget Evansville Mater Dei is #1 in the Power Poll having another great year and just beat Cathedral heads-up. And, Roncalli is Top 10. 
     

    The IHSAA governs all sports equally, not just wrestling. Historically, we haven’t had enough proximity between P/P schools in the state to have a conference. Cathedral is basically a default member of the Greater Catholic League (GCL) of Cincinnati for football playing Moeller, Elder, and St. X last year, while also playing Louisville Trinity. Cathedral has hit Cincy and Detroit the last 3 years for rasslin’. Our biggest challenge is scheduling. We hit all of the good Indiana tourneys (Traicoff, Al Smith) and host an aggressive opening 6-Way. So, not sure we have better options until IHSAA relaxes their travel restrictions.  
     

    Ps. If anyone wants to see some good Catholic revelry, stop by Cathedral vs Roncalli on Wednesday night, 1/22. It is Archbishop Charles Thompson Night. There will be a short tribute to His Holiness’s misguided social crusade. Kidding aside, these boys have been wrestling each other for 12 years now and there is no love lost. J/V at 6p. Varsity at 7p under the lights at Cathedral’s Welch Activity Center. See you there.

    Mendez is clearly having an impact on which weight classes some of our top wrestlers are competing at. Going off of the wrestler’s credentials on latest IM state rankings

     

    126 = 15 state placements and 5 state qualifiers

     

    132 = 3 state placements and 10 state qualifiers

     

    138 = 8 state placements and 5 state qualifiers 

    I would argue it is the Littell effect. If he’s healthy, 126 and 132 are equally top heavy and nowhere to hide. 


  3. Matt Howard is still running bout sheets. Hoping Mousey’s is still serving 6oz jars of Pabst. Such a great part of Indiana. Good luck to Cambridge City, Milan, Union County, and the rest of the brethren from SE Indiana. 
     

    PS. As the Rat loves his Region BDogs, I love my lads from East Central. 3 likely place winners dotted up with a loaded team of depth. Gotta believe they are close to Top10. But, DecBell is the authority, so who knows.

    Crown Point actually was winning 2 matches after 132 but some our kids got caught in that dual... 152, 285. We also won at 160. You can think what you want right now. But the dogs, In my opinion, are unstoppable right now. Also a much better tournament team than dual team.

    Totally agree with you on tourney team. I would say they are the favorite going into the Al Smith. I think the easiest way to compare a dual is the victory over Chesterton (39-34). In that match, Crown Point had pins at 120, 138, and 160. In a Cathedral dual, I think CP could lose all 3 of those matches. That is a 27 point swing in those matches alone.

    Respectively no. Cp tremendously out ranks Warren in most of the weight classes and so does brownsburg. I mean Cp beat a nationally ranked team.

    Since Cathedral won't see Crown Point this season in a dual, I will stir it up. I don't see Crown Point winning a match after 132 Mendez in a dual (similar to the Chesterton dual). I also don't see many quality points below 132 outside of Frazier at 113. And, Bettich vs. Seltzer is a toss-up. I'd even put Bettich as slight underdog. I would say Cruz vs Stewart (145) and Williams vs Urasky (152) might be toss-ups, so I gave you one of those two matches for good faith. I'm thinking 34-23 Irish. 


  6. Kudos to Avon for their early scheduling. That said, the Vegas spread for Mater Dei is -27. I don’t think Avon is a Top 10, but they are a good comparison squad. 
     

    #1 Brownsburg 27 point dual win

    #2 Cathedral 37 point dual win

    #5 Warren 27 point dual win 

     

    I’d be surprised if EMD doesn’t win by 30.
