1. Walsh 568The Eagles took 2nd at the CIT this weekend. Only 12 wrestlers entered.
Mt Carmel has returning state champ Colin Kelly at 175? 165? Should be a very nice matchup for one of the Miller’s. Interested to see if Karson Brown has closed the gap since Ironman, he’s had some real nice results since thenEagles do battle tonight with #27 Mt. Carmel out of Illinois. Features matchup should be 113 Mendoza vs Brown. Mendoza beat Brown 13-5 at IM. I think he closes the gap this time. MC also has Sergio Lemley at 132 who is a top 3 guy at his weight, interested to see how Kade Brown does against him.
Saturday looks to be a quad with Joliet Catholic, Lake Highland Prep (FL) and host Marist. ( I am giving my "analysis" based off Ironman results for these 4 schools)
Joliet- Not sure if they're nationally ranked, (I feel like this was Rudy's high school btw) but they are led by MatScouts #1 Heavyweight Dillan Johnson. Other guys who look to be solid for them are Mims (120) & Alessio (157)
Lake Highland- Very solid team I know they're at IM every year. 120 Rivera and 138 Rivera are very tough wrestlers who wrestle lots of tight matches- As do Butler and Bennett, the most likely opponents.
150 Mojena- Saw he placed 6th at Ironman, lets hope Eaton has his conditioning up by now.
165 Boykin won a couple matches at IM. I think a really good test for smaller Miller
Marist- All that stood out to me was Resendez lost a 3-2 against Butler at IM and 138 Denny beat Bennett 2-0., lets hope he can get some payback.
I'm sure I missed some guys but overall I think Eds should win all duals with ease. Maybe @bucksman can chime in with some insight on a few potential good matchups? Go Eagles.
It is Cols. DeSales. 215 is going to have some great matches in this QuadTough dual with Lake Highland Saturday. Missing J. Miller hurt but overall some tough matchups for the Eagles.
Eagles end the regular season at home hosting SVSM, Desales, and Strongsville. I assume this is Columbus Desales? I so, there should be some pretty good matchups here. I believe they should be the #1 team in D2. I think we see see a very tigh race according to Boro's rankings. Looking forward to some awesome wrestling this weekend that includes OSU/Mich & Penn St/Iowa.
Not sure you will see a full line up Saturday. I suspect you could see up to 5 starters out. I would think the Eagles are getting ready for 2/11. That is the next important date.I think the D2 team race will be a pretty close battle at State. Excited to see this dual as well.
