Alliance D-2 District Rankings (Off-Season #4)

I love doing these rankings, but as it has been pointed out before, they are just for fun. To any wrestlers who read these and feel that they are ranked too low, you may be right.
I am bound to be wrong on many of the rankings, but fortunately they have absolutely no impact on how anyone will finish at any tournament this season or any other year.

I started moving wrestlers up and down from their previous year’s weights. The new weights are partially based off of where they’ve been wrestling in the off season, though a lot of it is pure guesswork at this time.
Please let me know if anyone has inside information about new weights, schools, or wrestlers that they think should be added.

I’ve tried shifting the wrestlers around from schools that changed divisions. Please let me know if any are wrong, or if I’m forgetting any schools/wrestlers.

* = unsure about participation

-The schools of the incoming freshmen are based off of the previous Yappi thread. Please let me know if any are wrong or have changed.

1. Jacob Decatur- CVCA (1st, 6th state)

I moved Lautzenheiser up based off of an awesome performance at the Hoosier Preseason Open. He finished 4th and posted a 12-4 major over state qualifier Chase Caprella, a 5-4 win over Indiana state placer Jacob Moran, and a 5-2 win over Indiana state bronze medalist Brayden Lowery.

1. Christian Wayt- West Branch (5th state)
2. Ed Suber- SVSM (7th state)
3. Kyle Petersen- Aurora (SQ)
4. Jake Hamulak- Chardon
5. Tommy Frazier- Lake Catholic
6. Caden Scarbrough (6th middle school state)/Matthew Williams- CVCA
7. Sean Neff- Streetsboro (6th district)

Suber beat state qualifier Luke Hewitt 9-1 at the Hoosier Preseason open where they both wrestled at 123.

1. Matt Cardello- CVCA (3rd, 7th, 8th state)

6. Jamil Bannister- Girard (5th district)
7. Trevor Mitch- Aurora

Johnson and Musci are indeed registered at Super 32 for 160 and 152 respectively, potentially making this weight crazy deep at this district, especially if Yoho is back here.

2. Duce Johnson- Alliance (3rd state)
3. David Heath- SVSM (3rd state)

1. Tyler Stein- Canfield (SQ)
2. Breslin Walker- CVCA (SQ)
3. Nick Mason- Perry (5th district)
4. Ben Hornacek- Norton (6th district)
5. Chavion Young- Alliance
6. Chris Julian- Howland
7. Louie Stecz- SVSM
8. Lucas Woolf- West Branch

1. Jack DelGarbino- Girard (4th state)
2. Brandon Matlock- Howland (4th state)
3. Alex Leasure- Alliance (SQ)
4. Matthew Holman- CVCA (5th district)
5. Alan Christine- Conneaut
6. Austin Hindley- Woodridge (6th district)
7. Connor Franks- Tallmadge
8. Mehki Reid- Canton S.

Someone noted on the previous Alliance thread that Matlock may wind up at 220 this season. He would be a stronger district favorite at that weight, though I think the state tournament climate could be more difficult.
At 285 he is a co-favorite with DelGarbino for the district and state titles (as well as the sectional and EOWL titles).

3. Canfield
4. Lake Catholic
5. Aurora
6. Alliance
7. Louisville
8. West Branch

With Crissman wrestling 170 for SVSM, the team will be able to fit Ward into the line-up at 195 where he is a legit threat to qualify for the state tournament. That point differential should place them firmly as the favorite in this district heading into the season.
Johnson and Musci wrestling 160 and 152 should help the team out as well. Musci could be as high as #2 at 152, and Johnson could potentially make the district finals at 160.

It sound like state finalist Gage Braun may have sustained an injury. We’ll have to wait and see the severity of the ailment. If he is indeed done for the season, that turns 195 from a 3 horse race into a likely 2 man battle between 2x state placers Stone Day and Dominic Cooper. This could potentially help Canfield who would have an increased likelihood of a state title and a lower potential floor.
I’ll also be interested to see how Canfield addresses the heavyweight slot. Former middle school state champ Peyton Kostelic wrestled up at 220 at the end of last season, though he was more likely a natural 182 or 195. If he can grow into heavyweight, the Cardinals could have another viable state option in their line-up.

SVSM and Louisville are both sending contingents to Super 32. SVSM has Potok, Wymer, Tyson Sieg, Heath, Crissman, Suber, VanSickle, and Olson, while Louisville sends Lautzenheiser, Leonard, Logan Vanicek, Paulus, and Rhoads.
I’m excited to see how the young Louisville team will fair with an off season of development under their belts. They have one of the higher potential upsides of any team at this district with all of the young talent that they possess.

A special thanks to Boro Fan for all the insight into the weights of the wrestlers, Baum’s Page and Jake’s Wrestling for all of the results that they provide, and to any of the other wrestling nerds that actually read these things.
