St. Edward 2017-18

Congratulations on bringing home another championship. The Eagles battled the injury bug all season. A job well done by the wrestlers and the entire coaching staff.

Now we can look ahead to next season. Many things will change between now and next December but this team will be stronger and I believe will compete for a national title. Here is how I see the line going into next year.

106-Richter/Poole
113-Rini
120-Hepner
126-Annadonian
132-Kazmir
138-Gallagher
145-Hightower
152-Dover
160-Cundiff/Garcar
170-Beard
182-Howard
195-Kincade/O'Malley
220-Fatah
Hvy-Santillo

I think Graham will be in a better position to win a national title. Ironman will be a good benchmark.

No question. As I said early SPG will be ranked #2 behind Blair when the season starts next year. However, SPG has to come to the nest tis year. Huge advantage.

Love the looks of that lineup through 152 and am happy to see that Hightower and Gallagher to St Eds is still the plan. I'm worried that the lineup 160-285, other than Howard, may not be national title caliber level. Just don't see many Ironman placers there, hope they surprise me, really liked Beard as a middle schooler.

I stand corrected. After further review, I also believe Howard will be 95 next year. Did some research and SE is correct as usual.

SE I agree but I was told his scholarship college was asking him to wrestle 82 next year. True or false I don't know. I have to assume this true until I hear otherwise.

In wrestling next season, St. Edward to dual with Wyoming Seminary and Bergen Catholic
By Norm Weber
nwber@sehs.net

On the dual schedule for St. Edward wrestling next year will be national powers Bergen Catholic and Wyoming Seminary.

The two schools are perennially in the top 10 in the nation every year.

The quad will be held Jan 27 at Wyoming Seminary’s place in Pennsylvania. The fourth school is yet to be announced.

The Eagles, State Dual Champs the past two years, had Bergen Catholic on the schedule this year, but the New Jersey school had to reschedule and then the rescheduled quad had to be cancelled.

For the third year in a row, St. Edward will be at The Clash in Rochester, Minnesota New Year’s weekend. The Eagles were runners-up in that tournament each of the past two seasons.

The Eagles will also be at a quad in West Virginia with teams from that state and Virginia. They will also participate in duals tournaments in Detroit and Cincinnati.

This coming year the Eagles will host Graham from St. Paris, Ohio, the dominant team in Division II the past 20 seasons. St. Ed’s finished third in the country and Graham fourth. That match will be Jan. 20.

The Eagles will also host a quad in mid December with Pennsylvania and Ohio teams and host St. Ignatius in a dual early in the season.

Of course the Eagles will be at the brutal Iron Man first week of December.

Dec 2 - Tri @ Ed's ( Eds, Parkersburg South West Va. , Wadsworth)

Dec 8,9 - Ironman

Dec 16 - Quad @ Ed's with Pottsville PA, Erie Prep, and Claymont

Dec 21- Dual @ Eds vx. St Ignatius

Dec 29-30 - "The Clash " in Rochester Minn

Jan 6- @ Huntington West Va Quad with Independence and Christiansburg VA

Jan 13 - @ Detroit Catholic Central Duals

Jan 20 - @ Eds vs St Paris Graham

Jan 24 - OHSAA Duals 1/4's

Jan 27 - @ Wyoming Seminary in a Quad with Bergen Catholic and ?

Jan 31 - OHSAA Duals 1/2 and Regional finals @ Eds

Feb 3 - @ LaSalle for a Quad

Feb 10 - OHSAA State Duals @ St John's Arena @ Ohio State

Mailman, how accurate is this schedule? Just looking at the calendar it looks as if the State Duals finals will be a Saturday this year and not a Sunday.I really like it being on a Saturday if that is the case.

OHSAA Future Dates schedule shows the State Duals on Saturdays going forward at least 3 years.

I saw this tweet:

Mike Mattin‏ @mikemattin
Shoutout to @_stedswrestling for bringing 16 kids to @NHSCA nationals and placing 9. Not too difficult to see why they consistently excel!



However, I can't find the actual brackets anywhere. Does anyone know where they are posted?

I did see quite a few guys are already up in weight...Rini, Andonian, and Dover to be precise. Wrestling up a weight class at an off season event doesn't mean much. I did notice several other wrestlers who actually competed at a lower weight class than their in season weight class. I believe the weigh-in was +5, so those three are all candidates to move up at least one weight class next year and multiple would not be a shocker. It is next to impossible to try and guess a lineup this far in advance, but I'll give it a shot.

106- Open
113- Rini/Poole
120- Richter
126- Hepner
132- Kazimir
138- Andonian
145- Garcar
152- Dover
160- Cundiff
170- Beard
182- Lisco
195- Howard
220- Fattah
Hvy- Santillo

That is my prediction guaranteed to be wrong. I won't put any incoming Freshmen into a prediction. However, if the 8th graders being rumored to be coming to St. Edward to in fact come, they will obviously have an impact on the lineup.

Looks like you can confirm some incoming freshman based on the Ohio duals lineup. Not to mention potential weight classes. It's gonna be brutal for wrestle offs in the lower weights.

Drew Butera wrestled on this team last year as an "incoming Freshmen." He attended and wrestled for Elyria as a Freshmen.

I can not even count the number of 8th graders that people thought were coming to St. Edward that ended up somewhere else. I don't even count on younger brothers anymore after Lang, Habat, and Heil, until they are actually walking the halls.

St. Edward is a very tough school academically and it is not cheap.

The school is really becoming more and more exclusive every year. The administration has done a tremendous job.

I woulda say it's the cost more than the academics

Nice job Isaac!

By Norm Weber
nweber@sehs.net

As a part of the Case Western Reserve University Wrestling Awards Banquet Saturday, Spartans Head Coach Danny Song announced the winners of the 2016-17 team awards.

St. Edward alumnus Isaac Collier was named the Bob Del Rosa Most Valuable Wrestler.

“Building a culture takes a ton of hard work and sacrifice from all involved," said Coach Song. "With that, it is critical to get together and celebrate and recognize our progress.”

Collier was also part of the Spartans’ Scholar Wrestling Team National Championship of the Spartans, due to the academics and athletic combined excellence of team members.

This is just not true. St. Edward's Pre-engineering program is sensational and not found in many public schools. The International Baccalaureate program is fantastic as well and includes a full IB diploma track, something that many public "IB" programs are unable to achieve. The Debate program is the only program in the school to have won more State Championships than the wrestling program.

Also, two of the biggest factors in a student's learning is class size and the elimination of distractions in the learning environment. Those are two areas where a private school has a huge advantage over their public counterpart.

Plus, the networking for a person's post education life is worth its weight in gold. I can't even tell you how many doors being a St. Edward alum has assisted in opening over the course of my life. Associations such as "Legal Eagles" (Alumni that are attorneys) routinely assist former students gain admittance into law schools and make introductions post law school for internships and employment opportunities.

So, while the homework may be the same in a Bristish Literature class at Strongsville High School and St. Edward, but there is a lot more that goes into the overall experience.

As for the wrestlers...

Take a look at how many St. Edward wrestlers have gone to Ivy League schools, Northwestern, U of Chicago, Michigan, Case, JCU, Naval Academy, West Point, Air Force, or other elite academic institutions over the last couple decades. It is truly AMAZING! I can think of over a dozen Ivy League kids of the top of my head and another dozen at Northwestern or Michigan alone. St. Edward currently has alumni wrestlers at Harvard, Columbia, Princeton, Northwestern, Penn, Chicago, Case, JCU, BW, Ohio State, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Old Dominion, Mercyhurst, Kent, Pitt, Virginia, Virgina Tech, and Oklahoma State. I am missing a couple also.

Next year adds another 7 alums who are planning on wrestling in college, perhaps more.
