  1. Annual breakdown on team scoring. Teams score ONLY advancement points for Friday night matches (A TRAVESTY!) then count advancement AND activity bonus points (fall = 2, technical fall = 1.5, major decision = 1) from Saturday morning on. Points awarded are for advancement (2.0 per round you move forward in championship, 1.0 in consolation) and placement points. Since the advancement and placement points are locked in, here is how the placers will score - the variable then is the bonus activity points. 1st = 22 points + bonus on 3 Saturday wins 2nd = 18 points + bonus on 2 Saturday wins 3rd = 13 points + bonus on 2 Saturday wins 4th = 11 points + bonus on 1 Saturday win 5th = 8 points + bonus on 2 Saturday wins 6th = 6 points + bonus on 1 Saturday win 7th = 4 points + bonus on 1 Saturday win 8th = 3 points (no bonus possible) TEAMS IN CONTENTION (and # of wrestlers) Brownsburg (9) Mater Dei (9) Avon (7) Crown Point (6) Merrillville (6) Portage (6) Perry Meridian (6) Warren Central (5) Roncalli (5) Cathedral (5) Columbus East (5)

    Laplace vs Brewer Friday night

    I have to cheer for Brewer - he’s earned this spot and to lose based on these circumstances would be really unfortunate
  3. Curious as to who has scored the most falls in the state this year - Let's hear some numbers! Is there a state record that anyone knows of? I would guess Mason Parris from last couple of seasons put up some huge numbers - unless he possibly received a lot of forfeits from opponents calling in sick that day 😀

    When they were wrestling 60 matches in a season Escobedo in 2002-03 record was 61-0

    Mendez vs. Watts

    If Mendez is able to get past Watts and reach the finals, should still be a great matchup under the lights with Curtis, Walendzak, Rioux as the likely suspects, or perhaps Brock Peele rematch

    Fantasy Wrestling State Finals

    How does scoring work? Do you only score if they win the championship or are there points per place?
  8. Here's how I see Crown Point (in my opinion - and I know anything can happen) 106 Roberson - best case scenario 5th. I don't see him beating Cottey 120 Bettich - 2nd round matchup with Boarman. Winnable, but very tough. I'll give him benefit and take him all the way to 2nd place 126 Mendez - 1st place very possible 145 Burford - I don't see him getting past Graves but if he does then likely 3rd/4th at best 152 Hollendonner - difficult Friday night match. I have him at 0 195 Potosky - Allred in 2nd round if he gets there. Max of 5th place So with a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and two 5ths that's 69 team points plus bonus. I don't think that will be enough to get it done but that would be a great weekend for your team
  9. Y2 - need to check a couple of these they are showing 2018 finalists 138 First round match-ups of ranked wrestlers:#2 Blake Mulkey- Brownsburg vs. #11 Alexander Strueder- Fishers#4 Zach Melloh- Indianapolis Cathedral vs. #18 Noah Hunt- Bloomington South etc
  10. My picks: 1. Cathedral - they only bring 5 this year, but they are all high potential scorers. Mosconi (145) and Slivka (160) have relatively good paths to the finals. Seltzer 2nd round match will be a good one but otherwise I think he makes the finals. Rodgers (152) and Walendzak (126) are the keys - especially Rodgers 2. Mater Dei - Matt Lee (145) and Eli Dickens (152) have good paths to the finals although Cooper Noehre could be a roadblock for Dickens. Parkinson (170) could make top 4. Freeman (106) is on the wrong side of the bracket - he should make top 4 but then hits Cottey in semis. Boarman (120) vs Bettich in quarterfinals is winnable - that’s a big one. Any other points would be considered bonus points, with some bad 1st rd matchups 3. Avon - Garcia and Brewer are prohibitive favorites to win it all. I also like the draw for Rioux at 126 in his quarter bracket but further points would be a challenge. Both Conleys have very tough draws in first round. The key for Avon will be the young Garcia (106) and Reynolds (138) they need some additional points at both 4. Brownsburg - Lots of wrestlers, lots of talent - but I don’t see them at the very top end. However, these guys are battle tested and know how to manage a match to keep it within winning range late in the 3rd. They have a LOT of swing matches listed above - I think they are capable of winning any of them but they will need to win MOST of them to get guys into the 3rd/4th place range instead of the 5th-8th or put out in first round 5. Columbus East - Like Cathedral, not many guys but they are top shelf. Rooks and South are favorites - although South has a tough path. Bolte (220) could make it to the finals if he gets hot. Schoenegge has tons of talent but to reach finals would have to likely go through Sam Fair, Brock Ellis *and* Elliott Rodgers - that’s tough! 6. Portage - Moran and Donnell Washington are both guys I expect to see in the finals, and I think they both will win it. Brock Peele is great but draws Brayden Curtis in the 1st round. Hegedus gets Drake Campbell. 7. Roncalli - Only 5 guys, but they have some big potential. Could be among top few if they have a great weekend. Brayden Lowery could win it all at 120, but will have the other Brayden in semis. Alec Viduya (132) could also win it all but Garcia is the favorite and Alec will have to get through 2 other monsters to get to him. Freije actually has a great bracket draw - he should breeze to the final 4 and a good shot to get to the finals. Eli Mahan should get top 4 but would have to beat South or Walker to make the finals. Heavyweight John Harris may be their key Others - Crown Point, Merrillville, Perry Meridian, Warren. All these are solid squads, but other than Mendez for Crown Point, I just don’t see enough of their people going for a top place or getting past all of their early round matchups. They can be the spoilers in many cases for the teams listed higher
  11. Key matchups: 106 Carlton Perry (WC) vs Logan Miller (BROWN) in the 1st round. With only 5 wrestlers, Warren really needs these points. Brownsburg has to have lots of people advance too. Perry defeated Miller 8-2 earlier this season 106 Blaze Garcia (AVON) vs Suhas Chandi (Carmel) in 1st round. Rough matchup for the freshman - if he can win I consider those huge bonus points for Avon 113 Jacob Moran (PORT) vs Cole Ross (EMD) in 1st round. Brutal draw for Mater Dei - if he wins then Portage is essentially done. If Moran wins as expected then that is a big loss for EMD 113 Zeke Seltzer (CATH) vs KT Nelson (BROWN) in 2nd round. Nelson is hot, but can he control Seltzer? I’m guessing no, which would put Nelson with a 5th place finish as best possible scenario 120 Brayden Lowery (RONC) vs Tyler Conley (AVON) in 1st round. Likely that Avon loses one of their 7 here Lowery is too much 120 Blake Boarman (EMD) vs Chris Stewart (WC) in 1st round. Winner gets Riley Bettich (CROWN) in the 2nd round. What a group of 4! I think Stewart has the chance to pull an upset here but advantage Boarman. Warren absolutely has to have Stewart get to the points rounds to have a shot. Boarman vs Bettich - WOW! Loser can only place 5th at best WOW. Big points swing possible 120 Kysen Montgomery (BROWN) vs Carson Eldred (Westfield) in 1st round. The two have split matches this year. Montgomery has his work cut out for him, but it’s a big swing match for Brownsburg 126 Brock Peele (PORT) vs Brayden Curtis (YORK) in 1st round. Winner gets Lukasz Walendzak (CATH) in 2nd round. Another stacked group of 4. Peele is great but can he knock off both of these? If Curtis wins, can Walendzak score on the solid senior? 126 Kane Egli (EMD) vs Logan Wagner (Zionsville) in 1st round. Another tough first round for Mater Dei. Wagner is very experienced - but I think it’s close enough and Egli could provide the minor upset. Winner gets Hunter Watts in the 2nd round! 126 Jesse Mendez (CROWN) vs Hunter Watts (Jimtown) in semifinals. There’s a huge difference in points (22 vs 13) between 1st and 3rd place. Can Mendez repeat his 5-2 win over Watts? 132 Ricky Hegedus (PORT) vs Drake Campbell (BROWN) in 1st round. Winner gets Alec Vidya (RONC) in 2nd round. Yet another crazy quarter-bracket! Could be a BIG points move if the winner of Hegedus/Campbell can beat Viduya. Viduya has to score big for Roncalli 138 Jaden Reynolds (AVON) vs Dylan Goudy (Western) in 1st round. Goudy will be a tough matchup, but I’d consider these some critical bonus points if Reynolds can win it. 145 Jacob Burford (CROWN) vs Antwaun Graves (WC) in 1st round. Winner has a good chance to get to the final 4 so that would be big points for whoever comes out ahead here. 152 Tyler Conley (AVON) vs Elliott Rodgers (CATH) in 1st round. WOW this is a blockbuster in terms of points because either of these could go a long way in the bracket for some major points. I think Rodgers needs to finish top 2 to give Cathedral a shot at the title. 152 Sam Fair (PERRY) vs Jake Schoenegge (CO EAST) in 1st round. WOW another great matchup! Pretty much a must-win for both teams cause these are high scorers, and without them neither team has the numbers to make it up 160 Peyton Asbury (BROWN) vs everybody. Asbury has a pretty good draw. Can he make it through to the semifinals where he would likely see Slivka (CATH)? A 3rd/4th place finish for Asbury would be nice points 170 Eli Mahan (RONC) vs Thierry Jean-Baptiste (BROWN) in 1st round. Mahan is electric - can Brownsburg draft a strategy to slow him down and steal a win here? I don’t see it happening 170 Nick South (COL EAST) vs Joe Walker (Mishawaka) in 2nd round. South won a 2-1 decision at the Al Smith. Columbus East will need him to win it all to keep in the team race. If he defeated Walker, South could see Mahan in the semifinals 182 Carson Brewer (AVON) is the only one at the weight on one of the teams listed. Should be big points for Avon here 195 Austin Lane (PERRY) and Ethan Potosky (CROWN) both are up against higher ranked opponents in 1st round. Tough for either to advance 220 Lawson Aiken (BROWN) will have a rough 2nd round match against the winner of Kyle Cornwell (Elwood) vs Joey Kidwell (W Lafayette). Aiken knocked off the #1 wrestler at semistate, can he keep the hot hand? 220 Jacob Bolte (COL EAST) vs Drew Webster (N Montgomery) in 2nd round. Webster is a dangerous opponent for Bolte. Columbus East needs every single point it can get 285 Dorian Keys (BROWN) vs Yehezquel DeVault (Penn) in 2nd round. Heavyweight is always so unpredictable, but if Keys can get some big points here for Brownsburg it would be a huge boost for them
  12. As an fan today watching near the mat, I thought it was handled poorly. The officials consulted, main official said remove ankle bands and raised Bynums arm in victory. Then a second consult where you must have interjected and it was overturned

    semi state draws

    Are you suggesting there's a possum in the woodpile?!?
  16. Mixed feelings on this - assigned mat is easier for wrestlers to prepare and easier to follow for fans First available gets the tournament through the day as quickly as possible. A pet peeve is having 2 open mats while the heavyweight matches are stacked 3 deep on the other mats. If you can switch from assigned to first available at the end of the round, then that would be optimal Since you are looking for feedback - one ask is that the scoreboards for each mat display the weight class of the wrestlers on the mat. From there, I can usually figure out the match on my program by the singlets. Hate it when I don't know what weight class I'm watching

  22. 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 113 Pounds Evansville Semistate 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 126 Pounds New Castle Semistate Lukasz Walendzak - Cathedral (#6 / #1SS) @ Pendleton Heights Chase Wilkerson - Mt Vernon (#9 / #4SS) @ Pendleton Heights Logan Wagner - Westfield (#7 / #2SS) @ North Montgomery Cameron Toole - Lebanon (#8 / #5SS) @ North Montgomery Jevian Ross - Warren Central (#11 / #3SS) @ Perry Meridian Big landmine for Cathedral and Warren here. 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 132 Pounds Evansville Semistate Asa Garcia - Avon (#1 / #1SS) @ Mooresville Logan Boe - Plainfield (#7 / #2SS) @ Mooresville Drake Campbell - Brownsburg (#9 / #4SS) @ Mooresville Tyler Fuqua - Franklin Comm (#18 / #5SS) @ Mooresville Clay Egli - Mater Dei (#11 / #3SS) @ Evansville North Joey Gordon - Columbus East (#19 / #6SS) @ Jeffersonville This landmine could hurt either Mater Dei or Columbus East (or both!). Mooresville is stacked at this weight - they will send 4 highly ranked wrestlers to semistate. Assuming Egli and Gordon both win their regionals, they will each have to make it past one of the Mooresville placers to get to Bankers Life 138 Pounds New Castle Semistate Tyce Freije - Roncalli (#2 / #1SS) @ Perry Meridian Gabe Smith - Perry Meridian (#9 / #2SS) @ Perry Meridian Jarred Rowlett - Warren Central (#12 / #5SS) @ Perry Meridian Andrew Wilson - Cathedral (#16 / #3SS) @ Pendleton Heights Chris Wilkerson - Mt Vernon (#17 / #7SS) @ Pendleton Heights Wilkerson defeated Wilson 2-1 at sectionals. 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 145 Pounds New Castle Semistate Alex Mosconi - Cathedral (#3 / #1SS) @ Pendleton Heights Jeff Dunasky - Guerin (#9 / #5SS) @ Pendleton Heights Aiden Warren - Perry Meridian (#4 / #2SS) @ Perry Meridian Antwaun Graves - Warren Central (#5 / #4SS) @ Perry Meridian Bryer Hall - South Dearborn (#2 / #3SS) @ Richmond So many possibilities here! Graves or Warren will be a #2 finisher this weekend and both are absolute hammers. 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 152 Pounds New Castle Semistate Cooper Noehre - Greenfield Central (#3 / #2SS) @ Perry Meridian Brice Coleman - Warren Central (#4 / #3SS) @ Perry Meridian Sam Fair - Perry Meridian (#9 / #4SS) @ Perry Meridian Elliott Rodgers - Cathedral (#2 / #1SS) @ Pendleton Heights Like 145, this is another very dangerous situation for Cathedral / Perry / Warren. Rodgers should win at Pendleton. The regional at Perry is a tossup (Fair has lost to both Noehre and Coleman, Coleman defeated Noehre last weekend). Any of the 3 Perry competitors will be heavily favored over the winners from Richmond and North Montgomery, but if one of them lands in the ticket group with Rodgers then it will be a high-stakes battle, as any of these top 10 wrestlers could end up scoring a lot of points in Indy 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? 182 Pounds 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 195 Pounds Again, not much to see. Perry Meridian's #12 Austin Lane should win there. He could have #13 Tremor Bynum at semistate ticket round 220 Pounds Evansville Semistate Micah Dodson - Martinsville (#7 / #2SS) @ Mooresville Jayden Williams - Avon (#11 / #3SS) @ Mooresville Lawson Allen - Brownsburg (#12 / #4SS) @ Mooresville Jacob Bolte - Columbus East (#1 / #1SS) @ Jeffersonville Bolte should be fine, but the outcome at Mooresville could be a swing in points down the road. 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

    Great job on the write-up Silvertone!

    Perry Meridian Regional

    I agree - although Perry doesn't have quite as many top-shelf guys as recent history, they are solid all the way through and Warren + Roncalli also bring some hammers. Don't forget about Greenfield-Central too, it's a shame they lost Rose for his senior year but they have some other wrestlers who are very solid and could prove to be spoilers
  25. Are there any weights where there is a chance for a repeat of 2009? At 160 that year, 4 wrestlers (One from each SS) came into state finals undefeated. All 4 made it to the semifinals Mark Myers, Briar Runyan, Matt Todd, and Ross Powell. Runyan would win it all has this ever happened since then? Is there a chance this year?
