    Both are legit contenders for the title. Not the “every one has a shot and that is why you wrestle” contender but more like “I would be surprised if they are not under the lights” contenders.

    Once the records of the wrestlers have been posted on Track I will update the spreadsheet.  When new rankings are posted it will be updated as well.  After Sectional, Regional and Semi-state I will update the list to reflect who is still alive.  Currently I only have 2 weights done but it will be completed before Thursday.

    #3 Cooper Noehre, #4 Brice Coleman and #9 Sammy Fair headline this weight.  The sectional win by Coleman, over Noehre, provided an huge advantage to the Warrior wrestler because he will most likely have an easier path to the finals.  Noehre owns a 5-3 OT victory over Fair this year, but Fair is the returning State runner-up and has plenty of moxy.  The potential of drawing into #2 Rodgers is real for the 2nd or 3rd place finisher, something each one of them would like to avoid until Bankers.
    Noehre, Coleman, Fair, Akins
    160
    #3 Brooks Davis is the favorite at this weight but has a stiff challenge in the semi-finals vs 31-2 Jake Rebein, who lost a close contest to the Sectional & County champ #10 Aaron Taylor.  I suspect Taylor will find himself in the finals,awaiting the winner of the aforementioned match.  Davis is looking to build upon his 7th place State finish last year.  As a side note, returning State Champ Jordan Slivka will be at New Castle so better win now to avoid that ticket round match.
    Davis, Taylor, Rebein, Moore
    170
    #5 Elijah Mahern is the favorite to take home the title at this weight.  At 30-1 he has had a fantastic season; with that said some of the records of the other wrestlers are very good as well (25-8, 25-12, 29-8, 21-7, 25-10).  Noah Baker led him late into the 3rd period last week before succumbing to a fall and previously ranked Damon McClain will probably be waiting in the finals.  170 at New Castle is legit, with  EIGHT ranked wrestlers, so the path to Bankers will be difficult regardless of the finish here.
    Mahern, McClain, Baker, Clevenger
    182
    Wide open weight class, just waiting for somebody to grab it and OWN it.  There are no ranked wrestlers in this group but coming off his Sectional win, 27-1 Hayden Filipovich, has the best record.  He will be challenged by Tyler Goodall in the top half while down below Payton Frye will probably emerge as the victor, but he will have to earn it as well.  182 at New Castle is not loaded with ranked kids so a good finish here could propel someone to an unexpected trip to Bankers....Carpe Diem wrestlers.
    Frye, Goodall, Salazar, Filipovich
    195
    #12 Austin Lane is the headliner at 195 but semi-state ranked wrestlers #7 Gavin Keesee and #8 Nathan Bishop will make him earn it.  Lane wrestled up early in the season so he did not see the other 2 ranked wrestlers at County, where Bishop beat Keesee.  Last week Keesee returned the favor and now has the easier path to the Regional Final.  I suspect Lane will be to much this Saturday and bring home a crown, especially knowing that #1 Silas Allred could be a ticket round match for 2nd or 3rd.
    Lane, Keesee, Bishop, Beard
    220
    #15 Deshawn Young will try to build on his fantastic year (Sectional and County Champ) and add the Regional title.  Standing in his way is 27-2 Alexander Burton, who last week lost a 1-point decision to previously semi-state ranked Carlos Mitchell.  Mitchell owns a win over Young this year although last week he lost 3-1.  You also have the new kid on the block, and Sectional Champ, Jeff McClure from Perry Meridian.  His record shows is 3-0 this year; until last week he was a complete unknown to me which is not a common occurrence.  He had 3 falls and cemented himself as one of the contenders.
    McClure, Young, Burton, Mitchell
    285
    Hang on to your seats because the 'big guys' are bringing plenty of fire power to the event tomorrow.  #9 Dennis Hubbard, #10 John Harris and #12 Antone Alexander are expected to battle for the Regional title.  Hubbard owns a win over Harris at Team State, Alexander is 2-1 vs Hubbard, and Harris was county runner-up to #1 ranked Watts.  It will be interesting to see who brings their 'A' game and avoids a possible ticket round match with the aforementioned Watts.
    Harris, Alexander, Hubbard, Jones

    Allow me to provide analysis for this weekend with probably the most unbiased opinion on this forum.  🙂   Let me apologize in advance this will be slanted toward 3 teams who will be battling for the Ship.
    It is a 3-way race with Warren Central in the drivers seat.  Throughout the year the Warriors have proved they are the better overall team than both the Rebels and Falcons.  They defeated them at County by a healthy margin, unless we see a few upsets along the way I believe the Warriors will prevail once again.  The Rebels defeated the Falcons at County and last week in Sectionals the Falcons returned the favor by winning with approximately the same margin.  As you will see there are many matches that could sway the team race to either Perry or Roncalli based on a mild upset and/or a toss-up going the other way this time.....it will be a fun day at Perry!
    All 3 teams advanced their 14 wrestlers in the following fashion:
    Warren -- 10 Champs & 4 Seconds; Roncalli -- 6 Champs, 4 Seconds, 4 Thirds; Perry -- 7 Champs, 5 Seconds and 2 Thirds.
    1st round matches (3-seed vs 2-seed):
    Warren vs Roncalli -- 2 (182 & 220 -- HUGE matches for team scoring)
    Warren vs Perry -- 0
    106
    This weight class belongs to Mr. Cottey, with a close battle for 2nd.  Cottey has wins this season over #7 Carlton Perry and #15 Kody Glithero; it would surprise me to see him get a serious challenge before Saturday morning at Bankers Life.  Second place should be a tough battle between the other state ranked contenders.  This season Perry is 2-0 vs Glithero but the results were 3-1 & 3-2.  If the Roncalli frosh can pull off the mild upset it would definitely tighten up the team race.
    Cottey, Perry, Glithero, Smith
    113
    Similar to 106 I see a clear cut favorite in #4 David Pierson.  He finished 4th in the state last year and I am certain a deep run will occur again this year.  The battle for 2nd should be hotly contested between Andrew Haggerty and Christian White.  I don't believe they have faced each other and common opponents are not easily found.  White has the better record, Haggerty has the tougher schedule.  Wilson, from Roncalli, has a win over ss #8 Brac Hooper so he has the potential to find some magic and take 3rd place.
    Pierson, White, Haggerty, Wilson
    120
    The favorite is #4 Brayden Lowery, sitting at 32-0, but he has been challenged on 2 occasions from #12 Chris Stewart (3-0 & 4-2).  Both wrestlers have faced an array of challengers this year, and although Stewart has 7 losses they have come at the hands of Littell, Montgomery, Lowery, etc....  With that said I still have Lowery being the winner in convincing fashion, regardless of the score.
    Lowery, Stewart, Morton, Donlan 
    126
    #11 Jeivan Ross is the wrestler to beat here and ss #7 Sam Slivka will be the opponent giving it a try in the Finals.  Ross owns 2 wins over Slivka this year (Fall & 8-0) but I believe Slivka will continue to close the game on Saturday.  Slivka has 4 losses on the year (Rioux & Curtis) so he has been tested plenty of times and should be ready on Saturday.  Ross, who was shot in the forehead last year while laying in bed, has had an outstanding year and I pull for him in any match outside of facing a Rebel.
    Ross, Slivka, Mckee, Cotter
    132
    #2 Alec Viduya should succeed on Saturday facing a well-known wrestler in ss #5 Aundre Beatty in the final.  Alec has 2 wins over Beatty (20-5 & 15-5) and should continue that streak while moving on to New Castle.  This weight was deprived of an outstanding wrestler in Gavin Rose when he was forced to withdraw due to an injury; who will seize the opportunity to gain an invite to New Castle that probably would not have been available?
    Viduya, Beatty, Taylor, Defreese
    138
    One of the best weights in the Regional.  You have #2 Tyce Freije, #9 Gabe Smith and #12 Jarred Rowlett battling for that #1 seed at New Castle.  Freije is the favorite having multiple wins over Smith and a Team State win over Rowlett.  Smith defeated Rowlett earlier in the year but that semi-final match could go either way.  I believe Goodwin (Southport) has been ranked this year in the semi-state so he is a wrestler you can not overlook...quite the entertainment should be provided from this group.
    Freije, Smith, Rowlett, Goodwin
    145
    Two thoroughbreds are gearing up the finals at this weight.  #4 Aiden Warren and #5 Antwaun Graves are set to do battle for the Regional crown.  Warren holds the advantage this year with a 4-3 UTB victory in the County so it is obvious the 2 wrestlers are evenly matched.  Given the New Castle SS will have 3 other top 10 wrestlers waiting in the wings (Mosconi, Hall & Dunasky) being the top dog at Perry will provide you a 66% chance of avoiding one of them in the ticket round vs a 66% chance of wrestling one of them if you get 2nd.
    Graves, Warren, Wright, Page
     
    I will finish the last 7 weights tonight -- something called 'WORK' is bothering me at the moment.

    Indysportsfan reacted to base in IHSAA team championship - potential pitfalls looking ahead to SEMISTATE   
    Based on the IndianaMat final Power Poll (https://indianamat.com/index.php?/team_rankings.html/2019/power-poll-final-r114/) of the top scoring teams, here are some potential landmines with respect to the race for the team championship.  HUGE thanks to @Indysportsfan and his excellent data!
    *NOTE: Northerners - before you complain... there are not many highly ranked teams (other than Portage and Crown Point) from either the East Chicago or Fort Wayne semistates.  Although there are a LOT of compelling matchups at regionals and semistate, I did not see many that would directly effect the team race at state.  Once they get to state - then there are plenty of hammers that could mess up team points!
    106 Pounds
    Huge landmine potential here
    Evansville Semistate 
    Alec Freeman - Mater Dei (#3 / #1SS) @ Evansville North Logan Miller - Brownsburg (#8 / #2SS) @ Mooresville Blaze Garcia - Avon (#12 / #3SS) @ Mooresville Noah Lykins - Columbus East (NR / #8SS) @ Jeffersonville Either Miller or Garcia will likely finish 2nd at Mooresville.  They could draw into Freeman or Lykins at semistate ticket-round. Freeman won a 8-6 decision over Miller this season, and Miller won by 3-1 over Garcia at sectionals. Could be a big point-scoring swing at Bankers LIfe for one of these teams depending on how things go

    Cole Ross - Mater Dei (#5 / #1SS) @ Evansville North Ben Dalton - Monrovia (#6 / #3SS) @ Mooresville Hayden Watson - Center Grove (#8 / #4SS) @ Mooresville Cameron Allen - Plainfield (#13 / #8SS) @ Mooresville Kamariyon Nelson - Brownsburg (#17 / #6SS) @ Mooresville The log-jam at Mooresville could wreak havoc at semistate. Watson defeated Dalton last weekend 7-2. Doesn't look like Ross has faced any of these yet - but one of the 4 will be in the same ticket round group as him
    120 Pounds
    Evansville Semistate
    Blake Boarman - Mater Dei (#2 / #1SS) @ Evansville North Brayden Littell - Center Grove (#1 / #2SS) @ Mooresville Kysen Montgomery - Brownsburg (#6 / #3SS) @ Mooresville Tyler Conley - Avon (#11 / #4SS) @ Mooresville This Mooresville regional is really creating some tough matchups @ Evansville semistate!  From the look of results, Boarman and Littell should be favorites to win their regionals. Boarman has a good chance that he will have to face either Montgomery or Conley in the ticket round.  Either way will have huge implications for state scoring potential cause all these guys could win a few at state. Boarman has a 4-1 decision over Conley this year

Wilkerson defeated Walendzak 2-1 at sectional last weekend. If Walendzak finishes 2nd again this weekend, he could get Ross, Wagner or Toole for ticket round at New Castle. If Walendzak wins this weekend, he could still wind up in same bracket as either Wagner or Toole.  He has split decisions with Wagner this season

They will face off again this weekend at Pendleton. Perry regional is loaded at this weight - Smith and Rowlett should face off in the semifinals. If Freije can win regionals, then Smith and/or Rowlett could draw into Wilson or another tough opponent (Gabe Phillips/Kyle Holman) and have their trip to state cancelled.  Wilson really has his work cut out for him to get to Bankers Life and help Cathedral's point total - he's lost to Rowlett, Smith and Freije this season

Warren beat Graves in OT 4-3 earlier this season so this final could go either way. If Mosconi can beat Dunasky at Pendleton, then it sets up a possible ticket-round death match of Mosconi vs Graves/Warren or Bryer Hall vs Graves/Warren unless they happen to draw the winner from North Montgomery.  Cathedral/Perry/Warren could all lose a super high potential guy next weekend at New Castle

    160 Pounds
    Not really any here that I see - D Washington, J Slivka, and B Davis should all win comfortably and be separated at their semistates unless there is a big upset.  Most of the other top 160s are from teams not challenging for state title
    170 Pounds
    New Castle Semistate
    Tyler Wagner - Cathedral (#20 / #6SS) @ Pendleton Heights Cody Klettheimer - Frankton (#3 / #1SS) @ Pendleton Heights Eli Mahan - Roncalli (#5 / #3SS) @ Perry Meridian Tucker Coffman - Union County (#8 / #5SS) @ Richmond Logan Hart - Carmel (#10 / #4SS) @ North Montgomery It's going to be very difficult for Tyler Wagner to thread the needle and make it to state. He will have Klettheimer at Pendleton Heights who will be heavily favored.  Should Wagner finish as runner up, then he will have to get past either Mahan, Coffman or one of Hart/Saez/Lowe in the ticket round. Can he pull out an upset and give Cathedral a potential huge upside of points?

    Nothing really here - Avon is the only top team to have a wrestler in the Top 20 and Brewer should be safe through semistate no matter the outcome of regionals

Avon and Brownsburg will have to hope their wrestler can finish #1, or if they do not, then hope that they do not draw to the Bolte ticket bracket at Evansville semistate or they could leave points on the table
    New Castle Semistate
    David Guhl - Cathedral (#20 / #5SS) @ Pendleton Heights Kyle Cornwell - Elwood (#4 / #2SS) @ Pendleton Heights Andrew Irick - Hamilton SE (#3 / #1SS) @ North Montgomery Drew Webster - North Montgomery (#8 / #3SS) @ North Montgomery Haakon VanBeynan - Carmel (#16 / #8SS) @ North Montgomery Guhl has the potential to make it to state, but he will have to navigate some landmines - if he finishes a likely 2nd place to Kyle Cornwell this weekend, then he will need to get past one of the North Montgomery top 3 - best scenario for him matchup-wise is to get the #4 from North Montgomery and the #1 from Richmond as they have nobody on either the state or semistate list
    285 Pounds
    New Castle Semistate
    Jamichael Watts - North Central (#1 / #1SS) @ Pendleton Heights Dennis Hubbard - Warren Central (#9 / #3SS) @ Perry Meridian John Harris - Roncalli (#10 / #5SS) @ Perry Meridian The big guys are pretty unpredictable - Roncalli's John Harris defeated Hubbard at sectionals.  If Harris can win again then he should be in a good spot to make it through New Castle.  If he loses, however, then the danger is that he is put in the same ticket round bracket as Watts from North Central, the #1 heavyweight in the state.  Roncalli will need these points and potential bonus points if they want to make a run at the top.
     
     
    I'm sure I missed some great matchups. Mater Dei is #1 and Cathedral is #2 in the Power Poll, but both of them have a LOT of tough matchups due to the depth of talent at the Mooresville and Perry Meridian regionals.  Columbus East doesn't seem to have as many matchup issues - so who knows maybe them, Avon or Roncalli will be in the drivers seat in a couple of weeks

    This weight class belongs to Mr. Cottey, with a close battle for 2nd.  Cottey has wins this season over #7 Carlton Perry and #15 Kody Glithero; it would surprise me to see him get a serious challenge before Saturday morning at Bankers Life.  Second place should be a tough battle between the other state ranked contenders.  This season Perry is 2-0 vs Glithero but the results were 3-1 & 3-2.  If the Roncalli frosh can pull off the mild upset it would definitely tighten up the team race.
    Cottey, Perry, Glithero, Smith
    113
    Similar to 106 I see a clear cut favorite in #4 David Pierson.  He finished 4th in the state last year and I am certain a deep run will occur again this year.  The battle for 2nd should be hotly contested between Andrew Haggerty and Christian White.  I don't believe they have faced each other and common opponents are not easily found.  White has the better record, Haggerty has the tougher schedule.  Wilson, from Roncalli, has a win over ss #8 Brac Hooper so he has the potential to find some magic and take 3rd place.
    Pierson, White, Haggerty, Wilson
    120
    The favorite is #4 Brayden Lowery, sitting at 32-0, but he has been challenged on 2 occasions from #12 Chris Stewart (3-0 & 4-2).  Both wrestlers have faced an array of challengers this year, and although Stewart has 7 losses they have come at the hands of Littell, Montgomery, Lowery, etc....  With that said I still have Lowery being the winner in convincing fashion, regardless of the score.
    Lowery, Stewart, Morton, Donlan

    #11 Jeivan Ross is the wrestler to beat here and ss #7 Sam Slivka will be the opponent giving it a try in the Finals.  Ross owns 2 wins over Slivka this year (Fall & 8-0) but I believe Slivka will continue to close the game on Saturday.  Slivka has 4 losses on the year (Rioux & Curtis) so he has been tested plenty of times and should be ready on Saturday.  Ross, who was shot in the forehead last year while laying in bed, has had an outstanding year and I pull for him in any match outside of facing a Rebel.
    Ross, Slivka, Mckee, Cotter

    #2 Alec Viduya should succeed on Saturday facing a well-known wrestler in ss #5 Aundre Beatty in the final.  Alec has 2 wins over Beatty (20-5 & 15-5) and should continue that streak while moving on to New Castle.  This weight was deprived of an outstanding wrestler in Gavin Rose when he was forced to withdraw due to an injury; who will seize the opportunity to gain an invite to New Castle that probably would not have been available?

    One of the best weights in the Regional.  You have #2 Tyce Freije, #9 Gabe Smith and #12 Jarred Rowlett battling for that #1 seed at New Castle.  Freije is the favorite having multiple wins over Smith and a Team State win over Rowlett.  Smith defeated Rowlett earlier in the year but that semi-final match could go either way.  I believe Goodwin (Southport) has been ranked this year in the semi-state so he is a wrestler you can not overlook...quite the entertainment should be provided from this group.
    Freije, Smith, Rowlett, Goodwin

    Two thoroughbreds are gearing up the finals at this weight.  #4 Aiden Warren and #5 Antwaun Graves are set to do battle for the Regional crown.  Warren holds the advantage this year with a 4-3 UTB victory in the County so it is obvious the 2 wrestlers are evenly matched.  Given the New Castle SS will have 3 other top 10 wrestlers waiting in the wings (Mosconi, Hall & Dunasky) being the top dog at Perry will provide you a 66% chance of avoiding one of them in the ticket round vs a 66% chance of wrestling one of them if you get 2nd.

    Allow me to provide analysis for this weekend with probably the most unbiased opinion on this forum.  🙂   Let me apologize in advance this will be slanted toward 3 teams who will be battling for the Ship.
    It is a 3-way race with Warren Central in the drivers seat.  Throughout the year the Warriors have proved they are the better overall team than both the Rebels and Falcons.  They defeated them at County by a healthy margin, unless we see a few upsets along the way I believe the Warriors will prevail once again.  The Rebels defeated the Falcons at County and last week in Sectionals the Falcons returned the favor by winning with approximately the same margin.  As you will see there are many matches that could sway the team race to either Perry or Roncalli based on a mild upset and/or a toss-up going the other way this time.....it will be a fun day at Perry!
    All 3 teams advanced their 14 wrestlers in the following fashion:
    Warren -- 10 Champs & 4 Seconds; Roncalli -- 6 Champs, 4 Seconds, 4 Thirds; Perry -- 7 Champs, 5 Seconds and 2 Thirds.
    1st round matches (3-seed vs 2-seed):
    Warren vs Roncalli -- 2 (182 & 220 -- HUGE matches for team scoring)

    Two thoroughbreds are gearing up the finals at this weight.  #4 Aiden Warren and #5 Antwaun Graves are set to do battle for the Regional crown.  Warren holds the advantage this year with a 4-3 UTB victory in the County so it is obvious the 2 wrestlers are evenly matched.  Given the New Castle SS will have 3 other top 10 wrestlers waiting in the wings (Mosconi, Hall & Dunasky) being the top dog at Perry will provide you a 66% chance of avoiding one of them in the ticket round vs a 66% chance of wrestling one of them if you get 2nd.

    Allow me to provide analysis for this weekend with probably the most unbiased opinion on this forum.  🙂   Let me apologize in advance this will be slanted toward 3 teams who will be battling for the Ship.
    It is a 3-way race with Warren Central in the drivers seat.  Throughout the year the Warriors have proved they are the better overall team than both the Rebels and Falcons.  They defeated them at County by a healthy margin, unless we see a few upsets along the way I believe the Warriors will prevail once again.  The Rebels defeated the Falcons at County and last week in Sectionals the Falcons returned the favor by winning with approximately the same margin.  As you will see there are many matches that could sway the team race to either Perry or Roncalli based on a mild upset and/or a toss-up going the other way this time.....it will be a fun day at Perry!
    All 3 teams advanced their 14 wrestlers in the following fashion:
    Warren -- 10 Champs & 4 Seconds; Roncalli -- 6 Champs, 4 Seconds, 4 Thirds; Perry -- 7 Champs, 5 Seconds and 2 Thirds.
    1st round matches (3-seed vs 2-seed):
    Warren vs Roncalli -- 2 (182 & 220 -- HUGE matches for team scoring)
    Warren vs Perry -- 0
    106
    This weight class belongs to Mr. Cottey, with a close battle for 2nd.  Cottey has wins this season over #7 Carlton Perry and #15 Kody Glithero; it would surprise me to see him get a serious challenge before Saturday morning at Bankers Life.  Second place should be a tough battle between the other state ranked contenders.  This season Perry is 2-0 vs Glithero but the results were 3-1 & 3-2.  If the Roncalli frosh can pull off the mild upset it would definitely tighten up the team race.
    Cottey, Perry, Glithero, Smith
    113
    Similar to 106 I see a clear cut favorite in #4 David Pierson.  He finished 4th in the state last year and I am certain a deep run will occur again this year.  The battle for 2nd should be hotly contested between Andrew Haggerty and Christian White.  I don't believe they have faced each other and common opponents are not easily found.  White has the better record, Haggerty has the tougher schedule.  Wilson, from Roncalli, has a win over ss #8 Brac Hooper so he has the potential to find some magic and take 3rd place.
    Pierson, White, Haggerty, Wilson
    120
    The favorite is #4 Brayden Lowery, sitting at 32-0, but he has been challenged on 2 occasions from #12 Chris Stewart (3-0 & 4-2).  Both wrestlers have faced an array of challengers this year, and although Stewart has 7 losses they have come at the hands of Littell, Montgomery, Lowery, etc....  With that said I still have Lowery being the winner in convincing fashion, regardless of the score.
    Lowery, Stewart, Morton, Donlan 
    126
    #11 Jeivan Ross is the wrestler to beat here and ss #7 Sam Slivka will be the opponent giving it a try in the Finals.  Ross owns 2 wins over Slivka this year (Fall & 8-0) but I believe Slivka will continue to close the game on Saturday.  Slivka has 4 losses on the year (Rioux & Curtis) so he has been tested plenty of times and should be ready on Saturday.  Ross, who was shot in the forehead last year while laying in bed, has had an outstanding year and I pull for him in any match outside of facing a Rebel.
    Ross, Slivka, Mckee, Cotter
    132
    #2 Alec Viduya should succeed on Saturday facing a well-known wrestler in ss #5 Aundre Beatty in the final.  Alec has 2 wins over Beatty (20-5 & 15-5) and should continue that streak while moving on to New Castle.  This weight was deprived of an outstanding wrestler in Gavin Rose when he was forced to withdraw due to an injury; who will seize the opportunity to gain an invite to New Castle that probably would not have been available?
    Viduya, Beatty, Taylor, Defreese

    One of the best weights in the Regional.  You have #2 Tyce Freije, #9 Gabe Smith and #12 Jarred Rowlett battling for that #1 seed at New Castle.  Freije is the favorite having multiple wins over Smith and a Team State win over Rowlett.  Smith defeated Rowlett earlier in the year but that semi-final match could go either way.  I believe Goodwin (Southport) has been ranked this year in the semi-state so he is a wrestler you can not overlook...quite the entertainment should be provided from this group.

    Agree, it could have been 5-3 with a late scramble that made it 7-3.  I was just pointing out that the adage of "it is tough to beat someone 3 times" doesn't apply in many circumstances according to stats sites and/or Vegas betting lines.
