  1. Anyone feeling so inclined can make a donation to Steve's family to cover his funeral expenses at the link below. Steve was a great man with a kind heart who loved wrestling. He meant a lot to many in the Northwest Indiana officiating circles. He will definitely be missed. https://www.gofundme.com/f/wmp38s-cover-my-dads-medical-bills
  2. Didn't make much sense to me that Heartland Duals (Folkstyle) and USAW Folkstyle Nationals counted as a qualifier but the UWW 15U Freestyle Trials in Omaha didn't count (even though the UWW Junior Nationals counted as did the UWW Cadet Pan Am Trials a.k.a. FloNationals). Sent several emails and text messages back and forth to @dstruck on this, who said he agreed and would follow up with me on this after he spoke with the ISWA, but he quit responding to my requests. Any good reason from anyone in the know with the ISWA that this event didn't count?

  6. No doubt Slivka and Rodgers had ties to Catholic school before Cathedral. A clarification could also be made for Littell, as he went to Center Grove in elementary and middle school before enrolling at Perry and then transferring back to CG. My point is that people move around and this does not in any way diminish how special it is for these 8 kids to win a state championship, as the poster from Chesterton alluded to. Everyone is doing what is best for their family. Whether that is Slivka moving from Shenandoah back to Cathedral, Rodgers listing Noblesville as his home on his Trackwrestling profile and attending Cathedral, or Littell going back to CG after a short stint at Perry.
  7. My point is each family should do what they think is best for their kid, both in what school to attend and what grade to enter in. A few kids moved and a few kids are a little older. Who cares? Everyone is just trying to do what is best for their own families. Best of luck to all these kids. Many talented kids in this class.
  8. I think that annually this is one of the silliest topics on the message board, where instead of making it about the impact freshmen, we see venom from people who are angry that some of these families moved to another district for a better opportunity in life for their child. I can assure you that the following 8 kids did not feel any less "SPECIAL" when they got their hand raised Saturday night because they did not win for their original community or first high school: Brennen Cernus- Columbus, OH Jacob Moran- Crown Point Brayden Littell- Perry Meridian Jesse Mendez- Lake Central Asa Garcia- Danville Elliott Rodgers- Noblesville Jordan Slivka- Shenandoah Nick South- Jennings County Additionally, I think the "redshirt" argument is way overdone. As the poster above mentioned, one kid could be born in July and the other in August of the same year and they will be in different grades. If the parent of the kid who is born in July holds their child back, they are one month older and now in the same grade as the kid born in August. Not much of an advantage. I think it is more telling to go through the list of 12 kids and see what year they are on the USA Wrestling calendar as they finish up middle school. This paints a much better picture. Lemley- 1st year Cadet Schoeff- 1st year Cadet Purdy- 1st year Cadet Frazier- 2nd year Cadet Carroll- 2nd year Cadet Gilbert- 1st year Cadet Lowery- 1st year Cadet Goin- 1st year Cadet Goodwin- 2nd year Cadet Steenbeke- 1st year Cadet Jones- 1st year Cadet Willems- 1st year Cadet
  9. They are available in the TIKATAP app, though only 1 session at a time. I don't see an option to buy all sessions. You can download the app on your phone and purchase them in app by searching for IHSAA. They look to be $8 per session and there is an $0.80 fee per session for buying in the app.
  10. I'm honored to be nominated. I nominate: My Sidekick from Day 1: TorchedChair Blake Harner Super-Fan: Robbie Newkirk MisterHappyPantz "Who Should Keep the Bus Running"- HOWDOG75
  11. Friday and Saturday, December 29th and 30th.
  12. I was only a 3x Semi-State Champion (freshman, junior, and senior). Missed sophomore year to shoulder surgery. I actually won more semi-states than regionals. Only a 2x Regional Champion, freshman and junior year. (sophomore year was the shoulder surgery and a loss to Cosgrove senior year)
  13. Thanks for sharing! One of the most memorable matches I've ever seen at the Merrillville Semi-State. It definitely left a lasting impression on 10 year old me at the time. I scored it 13-12 for Bradbury. Is that what everyone else had?
