MATER DEI WRESTLERS BACK ON TOP

After two years of falling short at the team state finals, top-ranked Evansville Mater Dei returned to the pinnacle of Indiana high school wrestling defeating fifth-ranked Bellmont, 39-15, for the state championship at Center Grove High School in Greenwood.

 

The Wildcats (24-0) defeated second-ranked Perry Meridian in the first round, 25-23, and fourth-ranked Mishawaka in the semifinals, 31-25, in a pair of battles that went down to the wire.

 

It was the 11th overall state championship for Mater Dei, all of which have come under the guidance of Mike Goebel. With the title, Goebel became the coaching leader in terms of most state titles in state history. He previously held the mark with Harold F. Mumby of Bloomington High School who won 10 titles from 1924 to 1945.

 

With the championship round beginning with the 130 class, Mater Dei trailed 12-10 after the first six matches, but 171-pound senior Jeremy Goebel opened the floodgates with a 17-6 major decision that put his team in front 14-12. The Wildcats reeled off four straight and seven of the final eight matches. In the 189 pound match, sophomore Jacob Schneider and Sam Rich were knotted 1-1 going into the last minute before Schneider got a takedown and pinned his opponent with less than 30 seconds remaining. That result put Mater Dei in control of the match and they never looked back.

 

For Bellmont (25-2), it was their fourth state runner-up finish overall and their second since the team tournament came into existence in 1996. Both times, the Braves fell to Mater Dei (1999). Brent Faurote is the Bellmont coach.
