    My son, who is a baseball player, took a few years off after high school to get his head right.  He was a member of the Indiana Bulls program through high school but lost his way his junior year and disappeared from the radar of coaches.  Last year he made a choice to resurrect his career and live in the dorm at Ancilla.  He made great friendships while enjoying the school/instructors.  They do a great job of being there for the student; my son is returning even though he had other options so I believe that speaks volumes of his experience.  I give the school 2 thumbs-up!!

    Congratulations to Silas Allred, Joseph Walker and Alec Viduya on becoming USA Wrestling Magazine Scholastic All-Americans. 
    Exercising as much effort in the classroom as you do in a particular sport opens up so many more doors of opportunity. In a sport like like wrestling, where scholarship dollars are highly coveted and extremely limited, the ability to offset the investment of athletic money with academic money is a huge advantage for would-be recruits. It should also be recognized that consistency of effort in the classroom and into growing your character, demonstrates well rounded drive & effort....not just a one dimensional talent in a particular sport. Coaches and other recruiters recognize this dynamic, and feel much safer investing in these type of athletes. 
    So make sure you don’t get lost in the guise of “wins & losses” on the mat. Have the foresight to recognize how winning on your biology or calculus final can equally impact your goals. Even the often unnoticed effort of smiling at a stranger, being a friend to the kid sitting by themselves at lunch, etc., will assist in all your collective aspirations.  Make your goals first to be a good human, then a great student, and lastly an elite athlete. 100% effort into that priority line will take you to places many feel aren’t possible.

    Ancilla College, located in North Central Indiana,  is still actively recruiting for all weight classes for the coming year. We provide a great opportunity to wrestle at the Junior College level. We provide the opportunity to build your stock and be seen by 4 year colleges from Indiana and around the country. Those wrestlers that have not chosen a college as of yet, or would like to wrestle at a 4 year college and feel you've been over-looked, I strongly encourage you to take a look at Ancilla. We are coming off a great season where we had 4 National Qualifiers with 1 All-American and also had 4 NWCA Academic All-Americans. I am trying to grow the program and give more Indiana wrestlers the opportunity to wrestle at the next level. Those interested may contact Coach Line at the number and email provided here.

    9th - 13 NCAA qualifiers ranks tied for ninth most by state with Iowa. Pennsylvania leads the pack with 48, followed by Ohio (31), Illinois (28), NJ (23), California (19), NY (17), Michigan (17) and Minnesota (16).  
    6th - Using the Flo rankings you can also come up with a projected number of points scored by state (assuming no bonus points). Here Indiana moves up to 6th with 91.5. Penn still leads the pack at 254 followed by Ohio (152), Illinois (139), NJ (104.5) and Minn (95.5).  
    3rd - But things get real interesting when you calculate projected points per wrestler. Now Indiana moves up to third on the list at 7.04. Indiana only trails West Virginia (13.5) and Arizona (9.8), but those two states have only 2 and 3 wrestlers qualified, respectively.  
    1st - If you limit the list to the 11 states with double digit wrestlers qualified Indiana leads by a decent margin:

    **ASSUMING** that they score the tournament the same as last year (no advancement or bonus points for Friday night) the team race should be very close although I have it as a 3-horse race between Mater Dei, Cathedral and Crown Point.  I think between those 3 it's anyone's tourney - bonus points, key matchups and some unexpected scorers could tilt the victory one way or another.
     
    Here is how the scoring works (again, using last year's formula).  Wrestlers score for Advancement points and Placement points. Those are predetermined:

     
    Additionally, wrestlers can add team points versus Activity scoring:

     
    Obviously it makes a HUGE difference whether the wrestler can make it to the finals versus the 3rd/4th place match, and so on.  Here are my predictions:
     
    1. Evansville Mater Dei -  9 wrestlers with several chances to make the finals. Some huge landmines though that could really effect the outcome!
    2. Indianapolis Cathedral - Some good early matchups means that they have a good chance to have a large number of wrestlers making it deep
    3. Crown Point - With Mendez leading the way, the Bulldogs have some hammers that could make a deep run. They have some huge matchups with Mater Dei
     
    Evansville Mater Dei
    Nine wrestlers starting out Friday night for EMD.  Close matchups for Egli, Baumann, Sollars and Parkinson - if they get all 9 through, look out! 113 Cole Ross likely to face Logan Frazier in his 2nd match.  If we wins that, a tough one against the Schoeff/Anthony winner.  I have Ross making the finals 120 Alec Freeman has a brutal route - Head to Head with Crown Point's Riley Bettich in the 2nd round, then has to beat Cathedral's Seltzer if he wants to reach the finals 126 Ashton Hayhurst - Has undefeated Dylan Stroud in the opening round. Can he get by him? If so, then battle-tested David Pierson in the 2nd round and Rioux in the 3rd. That's a lot to ask of a sophomore 132 Kane Egli - He's got a tough road, but guys like this senior can decide the team title. He faces Slivka from Roncalli in the 1st match.  If he gets to Saturday he will likely have Ian Heath before hitting Mendez. Making the final 4 would be big 138 Blake Boarman is the big dog in a difficult half-bracket. For his 3rd match will probably face either Logan Wagner or Floyd Central's Conway 145 Brody Baumann has winnable first 2 matches but they won't be easy. Jajuan Anderson from Warren Central will push the pace - and then AJ Poindexter will stand in the way of a top 4 finish 160 Eli Dickens - Based on this year's results he is the favorite - but the final 4 at 160 will be extremely entertaining and could go any combination. He would have a match versus Cathedral's Eliot Rodgers in his 3rd match to reach the finals. That's a HUGE swing match for team points 170 Gabe Sollars - Someone like Sollars could make a huge difference.  His first match is against Chesterton junior Gavin Layman.  Then he would face a likely head-to-head matchup against Cathedral's Tyler Wagner 182 Macartney Parkinson - has the toughest quarter bracket in the tournament. Opens up against #1 Joseph Walker then has Mason Winner in the 2nd round.  It's feast or famine for Mater Dei here  
    Indianapolis Cathedral
    Cathedral enters 8 wrestlers to the field Friday night. All of them have a shot to make it to Saturday, with some high scoring potential 106 Evan Dickey comes in as a 4th place finisher, but he does avoid the loaded other half-bracket. His Friday night match is against Isaac Ruble - if he can get by that, then his points will really be a help 120 Zeke Seltzer is the prohibitive favorite but it isn't a cake walk. He may see Bettich or Freeman in the 3rd round.  Still, it's likely big points here 138 Logan Bailey is a big swing in points, I think.  He has potential to reach the finals, but he has a match against Drake Campbell in the 2nd round that could be a scare 160 Elliot Rodgers has a good path until that final 4 where he faces Dickens who has beat him this season. Will experience win over latest results? 170 Tyler Wagner may face EMD's Gabe Sollars in his 2nd match - that's a big showdown.  Wagner could make a run to the finals 182 Johnny Parker - Unfortunately for Parker, he drew in to the death quarter bracket of Mason Winner then Parkinson/Walker.  Tough to see him winning the first round, let alone getting to the final 4 195 Jacob Huffman - he is an interesting one.  His first match is against Friedt, who is ranked higher but also lost to his Cathedral teammate Parker this season.  I don't have Huffman making it to Saturday, but he could surprise and get into that 5th-8th range. In that case, bonus points would be key 285 Holden Parsons - the senior Yorktown transfer has wrestled well this season and the 285 weight class is always unpredictable. I have him winning 2 matches before facing Dancy from Portage.  Parsons is very experienced and opposite the Key/Irick combo. If he can slow down the match and wrestle strategically against Dancy, he could be under the lights with some HUGE points  
    Crown Point
    Crown Point brings 8 wrestlers to the first round. I think their first round looks great, which means they will get 6 or possibly 7 into the scoring rounds. They are very young, but still could surprise some of the older wrestlers and make deep runs to make this a close race 106 Sammy Goin has only lost once all season. I would love his chances - but he got a tough, tough draw. He has Chundi in the 2nd round. That match may be a tossup. Can Goin get past Chundi and make it into the final 4 and possibly win it all?  Since there are so many young wrestlers here and the action is lightning-quick, 106 can be very unpredictable and the matches can turn quickly 113 Logan Frazier is another freshman. He has a stiff task, facing the experienced Cole Ross from EMD in the 2nd round.  I would give the edge to Ross, but I am not counting out these young bulldogs either 120 Riley Bettich has a ton of talent and the chance to take out a couple of head to head competitors.  He should have Alec Freeman in the 2nd round, then Zeke Seltzer in the 3rd 126 Stephen Roberson - we all know the 126 weight class is bonkers this year. There are no easy paths to the finals and Roberson will have to face Kysen Montgomery in the 2nd round, then the winner of Dalton/Lowery showdown in the 3rd round if he wants to see the finals. Possiblity of huge points, or very few points here. 132 Jesse Mendez - He'll have the target on his back this year. Hard to see anyone stopping him from winning it all and getting the 20 team points. So the question may be how many bonus points can he rack up to help out the team? 138 Nick Tattini - Don't have Tattini getting to Saturday.  If he can manage to get there, that's a huge boost for CP 145 Orlando Cruz - he also faces a murderer's row of wrestlers but he is capable of getting some points. He has Feichter in the 1st round, then likely Avon's Jaden Reynolds in the 2nd round before seeing undefeated Alec Viduya in the semis.  Any points here would be a big win 160 Noah Hollendonner is the #1 seed.  He should win his first, but then will have to try to break up the favored final 4 at this weight. He will see the winner of Noehre/Asbury. Look for Noah to be shooting for 5th-8th range and getting bonus points where he can  
    Honorable Mentions
    Brownsburg - Some great wrestlers with some brutal matchups.  Logan Miller at 106 should reach the semis.  Kysen Montgomery will have Roberson in 2nd round.  DRake Campbell has only lost once this season - can he knock off Logan Bailey in the 2nd round?  Peyton Asbury got a Friday night death draw versus Noehre, but he will not make it an easy out.  285 Dorian Keys is the returning champion - can he repeat against Irick in a likely rematch with Irick in the semifinals and bring home another title? Chesterton - Look for Ellis and Bates to score big points here. Torres is great but has Rioux in the 2nd round. Kaiser would have to beat Boarman in the 2nd round.  Tough roads to reach those big-point finals Perry Meridian - Only 3 wrestlers, but all of them have a legit shot to get to the finals. Cottey (113), Koontz (132) and Warren (182) can rack up mega points, but they are just hurt by lack of sheer numbers Roncalli - Similar to Perry.  The Lowery brothers only have 2 losses between them on the season. Both could make a nice run to the finals.  Viduya is on fire and he could be the 3rd Roncalli wrestler to reach the finals.  Slivka is talented but has a really tough first round matchup with Kane Egli.  If the other 3 can get to the finals and Slivka reaches the final 4 then we may see Roncalli creeping up the board Warren Central - 5 wrestlers here. Brice Coleman is undefeated and favored - he should score lots of points. David Pierson at 126 would be challenged at every step, but he has the potential and experience to make a deep run.  Jajuan Anderson, Damon McClain and Dennis Hubbard could score some points, but not enough  
    As always these are only my opinions. Good luck to all teams and wrestlers this weekend - hope that everyone wrestles their best match(es) ever and stays injury-free, in victory or defeat.

    This is total disrespect and not needed.  You sir are a classless individual and clearly I say this without knowing who you are because you don't sign your posts.  I hope to hell you are not someone I know on a personal level because I think this kind of a statement towards a kid is just un-called for and you should re-think your posts in the future.

    Indysportsfan got a reaction from LN89IU94 in Dominating Sectionals   
    Naturally successful postseason runs (at any level) will help a program, but unfortunately it is NOT possible to allow every athlete/program to have success.  You do the best you can but you must realize that it will not be equal for all; that is impossible to achieve.  I am sure wrestlers who lose because of a tough draw (Sectional, Regional or SS) know they could have easily advanced at a weaker venue but I guarantee it will help them in the long run.  Experiencing failure is vital to achieve quality learning and growing into adulthood.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Lowery won at Marion County 1-0.  Should be another great battle.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    #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.

    #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.

    Rematch from Spartan Classic in finals.

    #6 Parker Smitley- Mount Vernon
    #7 Cameron Brown- New Castle
    #8 Justin Stephens- Pendleton Heights
     
    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.
