    Chad Red

    If he finds a way to place high at Big 10’s and peaks by NCAAs to AA then these in season mixed results are mostly forgotten. There are past guys who have had a few head scratcher results during the grind of the regular season, only to turn it on in those spotlight event like NCAA’s. We all know Red is a “gamer” who likes to prove something to the crowd in big events so hopefully we can see him rise to the occasion by the post season. College as experienced as Mark Manning & Co. have plenty of experience trying to can the code to whatever is hinder college wrestlers, we will have to wait and see if they can find the right approach to getting CJ into his top form by March.

    Hoosier Hills Conference was moved to this Wednesday evening at Jeffersonville.

    Cathedral vs Detroit Central Catholic

    And he can’t move up or down without running into another #1. DCC’s tough. Does anyone know if Mike Krause is still heading their youth development?

    State Rankings #6

    I’d agree it probably shouldn’t count if it was a JV match they wrestled. However if it was a varsity wrestle match he competed in then he would be considered a Varsity wrestler for that match. Thus, even if most of his season has been JV, it can be called a significant win if the wrestlers overall credentials suggest it.
  5. Good call on a new thread for second half of the season. I actually though about needed a new thread last week since the old one was getting long. I’m glad you had a similar thought. Things are going to get interesting as the Big10 dual season gets into full swing.

    IHSGW Girls State Championships

    Trackgopher that would make perfect sense for the Regionals wheb tge brackets are big due to unlimited entries. But I don’t see a need for the same setup at Girls State. State is only an 8 person bracket. Top 4 from the North and Top 4 from the South. Seems like that lines up perfectly for complete wrestlebacks to 3/4 option. I’m guessing the organizers want to speed the event along by not having the semi-final losers drop into an extra consolation round. Just let them wrestle for 3/4 and move on. From a tournament directors standpoint that does makes some sense since it’s a late Friday night. But, I thought this was about finally giving these girls some due. It’s Girls State not a random JV round robin to get matches. I say let the girls prove their placement by wrestling it out. Sure it may save a little time (that 2 less matches per weight) by cutting out a round of wrestle-backs, but then the first round draw completely decided your season. I’ve heard enough complaints over the years about the IHSAA doing the one loss and your done stuff at some round of boys state, but in this case the IHSAA isn’t the one deciding it. For most of these girls this is the highlight of the season and likely their last meet of the year (for some career). I’m guessing most of them would vote to stay two matches longer if it gave them them a opportunity to earn the placement they believed they have worked hard for.

    Hot Mic mat 4

    In other events I have found that having a decent play by play persons communication information throughout the match helps a lot to eliminate or at least drown out a lot of those background conversation. But that involves finding a quality person or two for each mat. That is sometimes a tall task for a multi-surface event when tournament help in general is hard to come by. You may have to turn off the mics for the opening rounds since a lot is going on and help is stretched. But maybe a couple useful play by play people can be found for at least the the finals. Or even a few of the top semi finals matches too.

    Team State updates

    Brownsburg finds a way through the mine field to win 3A over Cathedral and Warren Central. Snyder seems to always find that optimal line up to send out for team state. Western with a hard fought win over Wawasee in 2A. Adam Central finds a way to finish off Prairie Heights in a down to the wire 1A Final.

    With the “proper infomtion” Dane usually gets things pretty close. Wawasee shows they are deserving of that spot.

    Unranked 1A North Posey gets to semi-finals of Team state before falling to #1 ranked Prarie Heights in a competitive match. Yeah there is a lot more parity in 1A between teams but still worth noting they made semi finals after beating the 1A #4 and #5 ranked teams in the pool round.

    Wawasee making it to the 2A Team State finals is also notable considering they are currently ranked 9th in 2A. They have topped the #1 and #5 2A team so far, now they have #2 Western.

    I believe Brownsburg over Cathedral 30-24 in 3A team state semi’s would count as notable. After pulling out a few big wins over the years at Team state I think it’s safe to say Snyder knows how to get his team to win a big time dual meet. Them and it looks like it will be Warren Central for the title.
  14. Seems like this one is brought up every year now for girls regional and state. Sure would be nice in the future to have this completely clarified on the website and elsewhere prior to the day of weigh-ins.
