    IndianaWrestlingGuy got a reaction from Coach Moore in New Castle Semi-State Preseason   
    I’ll only indulge you because the two young men you are referencing above have completely different situations. To generalize them as equal is irresponsible. 
     
    I do love how people always assume kids pursue Cathedral purely for athletics. Athletics is just a minuscule upside of the Cathedral experience. Stop by campus sometime and see for yourself.

    IndianaWrestlingGuy got a reaction from Coach Moore in New Castle Semi-State Preseason   
    I assume you are referring to Cathedral’s 100% graduation rate and 99% college placement rate? If so, you’d be spot on. 
     
    How are the graduation rates and college placement at your schools? If you want to improve your kid’s chances to prepare for or get into college, send them our way. The $15k tuition is quite a sacrifice, but they’ll be part of an amazing campus culture and most likely be a part of a winning extracurricular. The Cathedral Open House is tonight! Come check it out for yourself from 7-9pm. No invitation required. The Wrestling Center will be open with the rest of our facilities. Come one, come all!

    You are getting your feathers ruffled over something you know nothing about.  Just because someone is speaking on a topic, doesn't mean they are talking about you. You are making just that, an ASSUMPTION.  I didn't assume anything, I simply said I was happy that these young men found their best academic fit.  If it was for other purposes, that is not for me to decide or discuss.

    IndianaWrestlingGuy got a reaction from Kyle Ayersman in Brownsburg - Preseason #1?   
    I knew you couldn’t lay off. The only “talk” on this site comes from #theCounty. I was just trying to help you with your 2019-2020 marketing. Good luck this season, coach.

    Not a chance. Crown Point or EMD are faves in my oracle. Littel injury will make it all interesting. Still think #theCounty will be dominant as usual. They have the best feeders and coaches in the state after all. Wish I lived on the west side of Indy so I could be surrounded by that wrestling brain trust.

    IndianaWrestlingGuy got a reaction from nkraus in Brennen Cernus Transfer   
    Bigger question is: Can a military school in the back hills of northern Indiana that charges $55k/year sustain a program with transfers from across the Midwest? 
    I say no. Forget about the coaching. It’s more of an environment thing. Beautiful campus. Incredible international diversity. Just challenging to maintain at that price tag.

    Very sorry to hear about Mike's passing. He was great to be around and like Jimmy T said, there was no one who did more to help kids who had nothing else in their lives. Staggering to think how many kids were given a future because of Mike's love for them. 
    Miss you Mike.

    Mike Ester, Demetrius Burton, and Tony Vaughn anchored one of FW Snider's strongest squads ever in 1991-1992. Good memories of those boys at Market Square and through the AAU circuit at Arsenal Tech satellites and Team Indiana. Rest in peace, Mike.

    IndianaWrestlingGuy reacted to davecloud in Thanks, Coach Peck   
    Apologies if I have missed a post on this already on the board. 
    As you already know, Coach Rex Peckinpaugh has announced his retirement as head coach of the New Castle Trojans. I will not attempt to summarize his statement since it, like everything Rex does, was so well done. Check it out on Facebook.  Rex thought long and hard about his decision and I am confident he has done the best thing, like always. Reading the posts from past Trojan wrestlers and friends of the program was like taking a walk back through time. Seeing the names with the posts sparked a lot of fond memories (except for when we wrestled them). Rex has been a leader and influential voice in Indiana high school wrestling so long that it is difficult to remember when he wasn't a force or to envision a future without him in that role. The good news is that Rex has no intention of disappearing. I'm sure we will see him at events and continue to enjoy his company.
    Thanks, Rex for all you have done to raise the profile of the sport in Indiana. The stats are truly amazing: Over 1000 dual meet wins, a win streak of over 100, dozens and dozens of state finalists, team runners-up in some epic matches and helping to host an awesome Semi-State, freestyle tournaments and Middle School State.
    But more than that, thanks for being such a great friend, rival and role model for how to treat athletes. There simply are no better people in the sport than the New Castle Wrestling Family.

    Congrats to our Indiana Outlaws for getting 4th out of 60 teams and winning the copper trophy. Led predominately by Cathedral Irish wrestlers, the Outlaws had 2 undefeated Gold All-Americans in Jordan Slivka and Center Grove’s Breyden Littell. Silver All-Americans with one loss were Zeke Seltzer and Alex Mosconi. Roncalli’s Alec Viduya becomes Copper All-American. Congrats to all Indiana teams and wrestlers. It looks like this great state had number of teams that were very competitive.
