Marian Central Catholic beats Coal City to win first Class 1A Dual Team title

By Curt Herron – for the IWCOA

One team was hoping to capture its first IHSA Dual Team championship while the other sought to follow up on its first state title in the sport with another one.

A coaching staff that took over last season looked to show that they were capable of producing a championship team in two years while a veteran staff wanted to add another first-place trophy to its large collection that’s been boosted by seven top-three finishes in the last nine years that tournament has taken place.

And one team wanted to demonstrate that an earlier clash between the two was no fluke while the other side intended to prevail in the showdown that definitely meant the most to both.

That was the story of the Class 1A Dual Team Finals where Marian Central Catholic made its first appearance in an IHSA championship dual meet while defending Class 1A champion Coal City advanced to the first-place dual meet for the fifth time in nine years.

Marian Central Catholic edged Coal City 32-31 on December 30 when the sides met for the title of the 60-team ABE’s Rumble in Springfield. 

That was the only defeat that IWCOA Hall of Fame coach Mark Masters’ Coalers  (38-6) had against a Class 1A opponent during the regular season. Their other four losses before the finals were to Class 2A and 3A teams, all of whom were ranked and three of those teams also were participating in the Dual Team Finals, 2A champion Washington and 2A fourth-place finisher Brother Rice as well as 3A quarterfinalist Joliet Catholic Academy with Downers Grove South, which fell one win shy of a 3A state appearance, its other setback.

The Hurricanes (26-11) entered the finals with a record 11 losses (2019 2A champion Washington had 10 losses), with three to out-of-state teams at The Dan Gable Donnybrook and The Clash. The other eight were against highly-ranked Class 3A and 2A teams, including 2A champion Washington, 3A champion Mount Carmel and 3A third-place finisher St. Charles East. Others were to 3A quarterfinalist Joliet Catholic Academy, Marmion Academy (lost to Mount Carmel in the sectional), Marist (second to Mount Carmel in regional), Lockport Township (second to Joliet Catholic Academy in regional) and IC Catholic Prep (lost to 2A runner-up Montini Catholic in the sectional). Co-coaches Jordan Blanton and Ryan Prater hoped that a rugged schedule would pay off for them.

Coal City was extremely young, with just two seniors, co-captain Brant Widlowski as well as Jamie Keigher, and only four juniors, including 165 champion and co-captain Landin Benson. The Coalers had nine sophomores, with 126 runner-up Broady Widlowski being one of them, as well as six freshmen on their roster.

Marian Central Catholic had four seniors, including four-time medalist Anthony Alanis and also Max Astacio, and five juniors, including 120 champion and two-time finalist Brayden Teunissen and two-time runner-up Vance Williams, to go along with six sophomores and four freshmen, with one of those being 157 champion Jimmy Mastny.

While there was plenty of suspense in the ABE’s Rumble dual where both teams won seven matches, the lead changed hands several times and the outcome wasn’t decided until the final match, the state dual meet featured far less drama as Marian Central Catholic won five of the first six matches to grab a 21-3 lead and Coal City got no closer than nine points back until the finale, as the Hurricanes captured a 34-27 victory after winning eight matches.

Blanton, who competed for Richmond-Burton, won Class A titles in 2005 and 2006 and an AA championship in 2008 while suffering his only loss of his career in the AA Finals in 2007 to Montini Catholic’s four-time champ Mike Benefiel. He joins IWCOA Hall of Famer Israel Martinez (West Aurora/Montini Catholic) and Jason Potter (St. Charles/St. Charles East) as two of the individuals who won multiple IHSA titles and coached a team to a Dual Team title. 

Prater, a 2007 AA champion and three-time medalist at Plainfield Central, joins IWCOA Hall of Famers such as Bill Weick (Tilden/Mount Carmel), Marty Williams (Yorkville/Mahomet-Seymour), Peter Alber (Dakota), Bernie Ruettiger (Providence Catholic/Minooka), Eric Siebert (LaSalle-Peru/Carl Sandburg) and Mike Powell (Oak Park and River Forest) as well as Ryan Cumbee (Providence Catholic/Joliet Catholic Academy) as some of the one-time IHSA title winners who later won an IHSA Dual Team title as a coach. Coaches known to have been champions who won a team title in the scored tournament were IWCOA Hall of Famers Jack Marino (Proviso), Chuck Farina (Proviso/East Leyden) and Charles Anderson (Tilden/Savanna).

“I felt like we were the most prepared team in the state championship, in any division,” Blanton said. “This was what it all was for, this was a big moment. I’ve been in big matches and had big moments in my life, so I’m trying to practice what I preach to these guys. Making sure that I’m keeping myself calm because I feel like they’re going to react on my energy, and I felt it. It was tense, it was exciting and it was awesome. 

“I tell our guys all of the time that they’re built for these types of moments. I used to tell myself that as a competitor, that this is why I train and this is why I put myself through such hard things. And this is why we put them through such hard things. Throughout this whole season, one of the themes was that we were built to overcome adversity and we’re built to do hard things. This is a challenging thing but I felt we were prepared, and when the moment was at its biggest, we were at our best. As a competitor, that’s the goal.

“I felt like we had some favorable matchups and we won the toss, which was important at the beginning, and it really went according to plan. I’m not one of those people that really likes to scheme and do all of that stuff, but I know our team and I wanted to be aware of what some of their (Coal City) moves were. We wrestled them at the end of December, but I knew that this was going to be a different dual and I knew that we were going to get some different matchups. But we also wanted to chase a couple of matchups and we were able to do that. So when we started winning those swing matches, it gave us that momentum and we had an opportunity to put the nail in the coffin, and we did it.”

Now that they’ve led the Woodstock school to its first state title in a boys sport since 1989 when the Hurricanes football program completed a run of four Class 2A championships in seven years for coaches Don Penza and Steve Patton, Blanton hopes that other wrestling programs from his home county, McHenry County, beside the only two that have accomplished the feat thus far, Marian Central Catholic and Harvard, can win an IHSA Dual Team championship.

“I’m one of those guys that thinks that winning as a team is actually better than winning as an individual,” Blanton said. “I loved this journey as a competitor, and I loved this individual journey for these guys. I don’t mean to say this like this, but anybody can win individually. It takes leadership, it takes buy-in, it takes culture, all of these other things on this competitive journey. When I moved back home with my wife, and coach Prater’s wife is my wife’s sister, and we started to coach, this was part of the plan. As much as I want Marian Central to do it, I want these other schools in McHenry County to do it, too, because there’s so many coaches who have been putting in work and putting in time and there’s so many tough wrestlers. A rising tide lifts all ships. We played the heel a bit being a Catholic school and doing it as fast as we did. 

“But in my opinion, our coaching staff and our wrestlers are going to outwork everybody. We’re very fortunate to have the experiences that we’ve had, and now we’re passing that down to the next generation and I want everybody to grow from this. So if I have to ruffle a couple feathers and people are going to be a little upset, I’m more than happy to take that because I know that we’re headed in the right direction and this is just the start.”

In the championship dual meet that started at 106, Austin Hagevold won a 7-6 decision over Owen Petersen in a clash of placewinners to put the Hurricanes in front for good. Sophomore Hagevold placed fourth at 106 while freshman Petersen took sixth at 106.

Anthony Alanis, a four-time state placewinner, concluded his successful career with a 10-3 decision over freshman medalist Cooper Morris at 113 to give Marian Central Catholic a 6-0 lead. Alanis took third at 113 in his only year with the Hurricanes after transferring from Grayslake Central, where he won the 2A title at 106 last season, took second at 106 in 2022 and was sixth at 106 in 2A at the IWCOA Finals in 2021. Morris took fifth at 113 this season.

Coal City got its first victory at 120 when junior Culan Lindemuth, who fell one win shy of a medal at 120, won an 8-1 decision over sophomore Josiah Perez to pull his team to within 6-3.

Brayden Teunissen boosted Marian Central Catholic’s lead to 11-3 when he won by technical fall over sophomore Luke Munsterman at 126. Teunissen, a junior, won the state title at 120 after being a Class 3A runner-up at 106 last season while competing for Belvidere co-op. 

Andrew Alvarado, a junior who qualified for state this year at 138 after placing fifth at 113 a year ago, won a key match at 132 when he recorded a fall in 4:38 over sophomore Brody Widlowski, who was the state runner-up to Auburn’s Joey Ruzic at 126 and took fourth at 113 last season, to increase the Hurricanes’ lead to 17-3.

Vance Williams, a junior, who took second place at state at 132 to Rockridge’s Jude Finch and also was the IHSA runner-up at 132 to Dakota’s Phoenix Blakely last season as well as fourth-place finisher at that weight in 2022, increased the Hurricanes’ lead to 21-3 at 138 after winning a 14-6 major decision over sophomore Mason Garner, who fell one win shy of a medal at 138.  

Coal City got a 5-1 decision from sophomore state qualifier Brock Finch over sophomore Josh Gawronski at 144 and Coalers senior Brant Widlowski, who placed fifth at 150 this season and fifth at 120 a year ago, recorded a fall in 2:51 over junior Connor Cassels to pull their team to within 21-12.

After freshman Jimmy Mastny, the 157 state champion, received a forfeit win for the Hurricanes, Coalers junior Landin Benson, the 165 IHSA champion, captured a 3-2 decision over freshman Nic Astacio to make the score 27-15 with four matches remaining.

Senior Max Astacio, who took sixth at 165 this season and fifth at 160 a year ago and also competed for the Hurricanes in their 2A title-winning performance at the IWCOA Finals in 2021, won a 4-0 decision over junior John Keigher at 175 to make it 30-15. Then Coal City sophomore Cade Poyner, who fell one win short of a medal at 190, received a forfeit win.

Sophomore Dan French, who was a state qualifier at 190, wrapped things up for Marian Central Catholic when he won an 11-0 major decision at 215 over junior Alec Waliczek. The Hurricanes forfeited to freshman Emmett Easton at 285 to make the final score 34-27.

“Did I think we’d be back here (in the title dual)?” Masters said. “At the beginning of the year, I wasn’t 100 percent on that. We had some injuries early and guys coming in from football that needed to get in shape. Once we started getting guys back, we started thinking we could win this thing again. 

“We will be good again next year. Landin Benson is only a junior. We have a lot of guys back. Of course, we are going to miss Buddy (Brant Widlowski). He set a school record with 40 or 41 pins this year. You don’t replace that and it’s going to be hard to replace his leadership.

“A lot of the kids that are on this team weren’t on last year’s team, but they have wrestled on a big stage at the IESA tournaments and stuff like that, so even though they are young, they are experienced.”

Roxana (23-7), coached by Rob Milazzo, made its first Dual Team Finals appearance since 2014 and won its third trophy and had its second-best finish in the competition after it defeated Vandalia 44-27 for third place. The only time that the Shells placed better was in 2004, when they won their last trophy, which was for second place in Class A under coach Michael Kurth. 

Vandalia (31-4), which is coached by Jason Clay, made its 23rd appearance in the Dual Team Finals, which ranks second to Montini Catholic, the Class 2A runner-up to Washington, which was at state for the 24th time. The Vandals, who lost in the quarterfinals in their last previous state trip in 2022, captured their tenth trophy, including their fifth under Clay.

In the third-place dual meet, Vandalia got a win by technical fall from freshman Max Philpot, the runner-up to Johnsburg’s Eric Bush at 106, over freshman Savion Hall in the opener at 106 and then got a fall from freshman state qualifier Elijah Mabry over sophomore Ari Walker to grab a quick 11-0 advantage. 

Roxana responded with a fall from junior Lleyton Cobine over freshman Brody Matthews, a 14-12 decision from sophomore state qualifier Logan Riggs over junior Deon Moore and a pin from sophomore Brandon Green, Jr., who took fifth place at 132, over freshman Gabe Weischedel to give it a 15-11 advantage.

The Vandals moved back in front at 21-15 following a 16-5 major decision at 138 from freshman state qualifier Cole Yarbrough over junior Kadin Carlisle and a pin from sophomore Dillon Hinton, who was the 138 runner-up to Benton’s Mason Tieffel, over junior Trevor Gihring at 144.

However, the Shells won the next four matches to move back in front for good as senior Bryan Rodriguez pinned freshman Dade Kleinik at 150 and senior state qualifier Braden Johnson, who fell one win shy of a medal at 150, recorded a fall over junior Artan Mustafa. Sophomore Lyndon Thies, who took fourth place at 157, won by technical fall over freshman Noah Langston at 165 and senior Elias Thies won 9-7 in sudden victory over sophomore Ross Miller to give their team a 35-21 lead with three matches left.

Junior Kaden Tidwell, who took fourth at 190, got a pin over junior Robert Watt to cut the lead to 35-27 but senior Donald Battles won a 13-8 decision over freshman Dominic Swyers to wrap up the victory and senior James Herring, who finished third at 285, concluded the dual meet with a fall over junior Jayden Rosetto to bring the final score to 44-27.

“The kids wrestled very well over the weekend,” Milazzo said. “On Friday night, we beat Unity to secure a trophy and then we went toe-to-toe with state champion Marian Central Catholic before losing in the semifinals. 

“In the third-place match we avenged an earlier loss to Vandalia. On December 7, they beat us 46-31. We flipped the score on them and beat them 44-27. I’m always emphasizing the importance of peaking at the right time, and we did just that. We got a big boost from our seniors in that match. All five of them won in convincing fashion. It’s not often that you get to coach your kids to victory in their final match. It was really special. 

“It was a great ride this year. We got second at Mascoutah, third at ABE’s Rumble, second at Princeton, second at Quincy, first at Litchfield, first at regionals and third at state. It doesn’t get a whole lot better than that. It’s been 20 years since we last placed, so we know how special it is. We will take it all in, celebrate at the pep rally and reflect on our accomplishment.”

First place – Marian Central Catholic

This was the first time that the Hurricanes appeared in the Dual Team Finals since 2020, the last season of a three-year run of state trips for coach David Silva, with the highlight being a third-place finish in 2019 when they were edged 30-29 by Coal City in the semifinals before beating Triad 44-18 in the third-place meet. In 2021, Marian Central Catholic was the champion in Class 2A at the IWCOA Finals in Silva’s final season as its head coach when it collected a tournament-high 178 points to finish well ahead of Civic Memorial, who scored 147.5 points.

This is the second year that Jordan Blanton and Ryan Prater are co-coaches for the program. Both were standouts for the University of Illinois with Prater also winning an NCAA title at Elmhurst College. Blanton won three titles and took second place once in a 152-1 career at Richmond-Burton while Prater was a three-time medalist, two-time finalist and state champion at Plainfield Central. The two are married to sisters and they have run the Relentless Training Center in Johnsburg. They are assisted by Jim Herff, Mark Holian and Jerry Miceli.

Last year, the Hurricanes got to within one win of advancing to Dual Team Finals from the Oregon Sectional but fell 40-31 to Lena-Winslow/Stockton, which took third place. Seniors Nick Davidson, Charlie Fitzgerald, Kaden Harman and Ethan Struck all had 30 or more wins and Struck took fourth at 152 while Davidson came up one win shy of a medal at 138 while runner-up Williams and fifth-place finishers Max Astacio and Alvarado gave them four medalists.

Marian Central Catholic assured itself of a trophy with a 54-12 win over LeRoy/Tri-Valley in Friday’s quarterfinals and advanced to the championship dual meet for the first time after it won 41-26 over Roxana in Saturday’s semifinals.

Posting 3-0 records for the champion Hurricanes were Alanis (113), Teunissen (126), Williams (132/138), Mastny (157), Max Astacio (165/175) and French (190/215) while Hagevold (106) went 2-0 and Alvarado (132/138) and Nic Astacio (165/175) both went 2-1.

“It feels good, it’s something that we’ve been working on for a long time,” Max Astacio said. “It’s a full-circle moment, because with David Silva, we won the IWCOA (in 2021), but nobody really counts that one. And then we had a couple of tough years and then we built back up and did it. 

“We proved it today, we were the baddest guys in the building. This was the epitome of Marian wrestling. Hard, snub-nosed bad guys, that’s what Marian wrestling is all about, and that’s what we did. I think that this is going to be a dynasty.”

In their semifinal win over Roxana, the Hurricanes received pins from Hagevold, Alanis, Mastny and French while Teunissen was a winner by technical fall. Max and Nic Astacio both won decisions and Williams received a forfeit win to advance the team to the title dual meet. Marian Central Catholic had an 8-5 edge in victories with both teams forfeiting at 215.

“This feels just good as the individual,” Alanis said. “To celebrate with my teammates, my coaches and my parents and all of my friends, it’s something different. (The title win) That was because of all of the hard work that we put in throughout the year. 

“We were always looking to get better, always. Even the community, the school, the teachers, the principals, everyone, it was a group effort and I’m glad that it paid off. I want to wrestle in college but I’m currently undecided and I want to do something in engineering.”

Against LeRoy/Tri-Valley in the quarterfinals, the Hurricanes had an 11-3 advantage in wins. Alvarado, Nic Astacio and French recorded falls, Alanis and Teunissen both recorded wins by technical fall, Williams and Max Astacio won major decisions, junior Kaleb Eckman and Cassels won decisions while senior Chandler Gardner and Mastny received forfeit wins.

Marian Central Catholic had two champions, three finalists and six medals to go along with two other qualifiers. As for its top medalists: Teunissen, who defeated Carlyle’s Tyson Waughtel to win the 120 title, finished 44-5; Mastny, who beat Oakwood/Salt Fork’s Bryson Capansky for the 157 title, went 32-1; Williams, who took second to Rockridge’s Jude Finch at 132, had a 48-9 record; and Alanis, who claimed third place at 113, also finished 44-5. 

“I was very proud, I knew that I was going to win because I prepared perfectly for my match,” Teunissen said of also being an individual state champion. “And this feels really good. Our team knew what we had and it would take to win. In some duals, we had some errors, but in the final match, we just wrestled really good, everyone on our team wrestled well.

“I liked how we all really work hard together in the room. So when everyone is working, it just kind of motivates everyone to just keep working harder.”

Hagevold, who was fourth at 106, went 39-18 and Max Astacio, who placed sixth at 165 finished 43-8. State qualifier Alvarado had a 37-15 record and qualifier French finished 33-24. The other senior on the team was Will Gillaspie.

Second Place – Coal City

Coal City (38-6) placed among the top three teams in Class 1A for the seventh time in the last nine year that the IHSA Dual Team Finals has been held. Coach Mark Masters, who is 472-156 during his 21-year tenure and was inducted into the IWCOA Hall of Fame in 2022, won the program’s first state championship a year ago and also led teams to second place in 2016, 2019 and 2020 and to third-place finishes in 2015 and 2018. Between 1984 and 1999, the Coalers were also runners-up on three occasions and had one fourth-place finish.

This was the ninth-straight season (not including shortened 2020-2021) that Masters’ teams have won 27 or more dual meets and their 38 wins ties the 2019 team for the third-most wins in a season by the Coalers, who won 42 dual  meets last season and 39 duals in 2020. His assistant coaches were Jim Looper, Nick O’Bert, Joe Widlowski and Zach Berman.

Coal City graduated 10 individuals from last season’s historic championship team. Seniors from that team who won 40 or more matches were Mataeo Blessing, Joey Breneman, Drake Dearth and Braiden Young while Derek Carlson, Michael Gonzalez and Jack Poyner won 30 or more matches. All of those individuals also qualified for the IHSA Individual Finals as Breneman took third at 195, Young was fourth at 182, Jake Piatak was sixth at 132, Blessing fell one win shy of a medal at 145 and Carlson came up one win short of a medal at 170.

The Coalers captured a 42-22 victory over Vandalia in the semifinals to advance to the title meet at the IHSA Dual Team Finals for the second year in a row, something that it had not done before. This was the eighth time overall and the fifth time since 2016 that they competed in the first-place dual meet at the state finals.

After the Vandals got a pin in the opener and a major decision from 106 runner-up Philpot  in the second match to grab an early 10-0 lead, Morris, Lindemuth and Munsterman all won decisions and then the Coalers moved in front for good at 17-10 following major decisions from Brody Widlowski and Garner.

Vandalia closed to with 17-16 when 138 runner-up Hinton got a fall at 144 but Coal City rattled off the next five victories as Finch won a major decision, Brant Widlowski and Benson got pins and senior James Keigher and Poyner won decisions before the Coalers forfeited in the last match to have a 10-4 advantage in matches won.

In their 54-13 victory over Riverdale in the quarterfinals, the Coalers won the first five matches to grab a decisive 24-0 advantage. Easton opened with a fall, sophomore Payton Vigna followed with a decision and then Petersen and Morris got pins before Lindemuth captured a decision. 

After Riverdale got its first victory, a major decision from two-time medalist Dean Wainwright at 126, Coal City won six of the final eight matches to finish with an 11-3 advantage in victories for the dual. Sophomore Noah Houston, Finch, Brant Widlowski and John Keigher also recorded falls while Garner and freshman Brody D’Orazio won decisions to wrap up one of the three dual meets in the quarterfinals which were won by more than 40 points. 

The Coalers received 3-0 performances from Lindemuth (120), Finch (144/150) and Brant Widlowski (150/157) while Benson (165) and Poyner (190) both went 2-0 and Morris (113), Garner (138) and Easton (215/285) all went 2-1.

“I was glad to be back in the state finals,” Brant Widlowski said. “This is a special group of guys and they can move from one weight to another depending on what we need. We try to get the best matchups. I am proud of our guys. We are like family. Sometimes it feels like we spend more time together than with our actual families.

“It’s hard to walk away. I started feeling that at the individual tournament. This was going to be the last time for me to be together with my brother and my dad and my teammates. Dad started the Little Coalers. There’s a little bit of pressure to have the name Widlowski in Coal City wrestling.

“I am proud to be a part of school history like this. First time in back-to-back title matches, Winning a state title. For a while, Wilmington was the standard in our area, but we have gotten past them and it feels great.”

Coal City had one state champion, two finalists, five medalists and 11 state qualifiers. Benson, who won the 165 title over Tremont’s Bowden Delaney, finished with a 30-2 record while Brody Widlowski, who was the runner-up to Auburn’s Joey Ruzic at 126, closed with a 29-5 record. Brant Widlowski, who was fifth at 150, finished 51-5 while Morris, who placed fifth at 113, posted a 45-10 record and Petersen, who took sixth at 106, finished 46-9.

Lindemuth, who fell one win shy of a medal at 120, closed with a 36-16 record, Garner, who was one victory away from a medal at 138, finished 40-7 and Poyner, who was a win away from a medal at 190, went 45-10. The other qualifiers were Jamie Keigher (35-17), Finch (42-14) and Houston (36-12). Team captains were Brant Widlowski and Benson.

“It’s not the way we wanted to end it,” Benson said. “I feel sad for the seniors, but the rest of us have to work hard and try to get back next year. It’s hard to lose Buddy (Brant Widlowski). He is an amazing leader. He leads us in warmups, will get up and give speeches. He’s like another coach.

“I get more motivated for matches in a dual meet than individual. You spend the whole year with the team and you go through a lot with them. It’s huge to win a title with them.”

Third Place – Roxana

Roxana coach Rob Milazzo, who’s in his 19th year leading the Shells (23-7), won his first trophy as a result of their third-place finish. This was his second team that he led to the Dual Team Finals, with the other one in 2014, when his team lost in the quarterfinals. He was assisted by Tom Blaha, Tom Hill, Mike Kurth and Mike Garland. This is the program’s second-best finish at the dual team finals, with a second-place showing in 2004 being the standard.

In their 41-26 semifinal loss to Marian Central Catholic, the Shells received falls from Cobine, Green Jr. and Herring, a win by technical fall from Johnson and a decision from Gihring.

And in its 48-30 victory over Unity in the quarterfinals, Roxana lost the opener but then won the next six matches to claim a 36-6 lead and was up 48-12 when it forfeited at the last three weights. Herring, Walker, Cobine, Riggs, Green Jr. and Johnson all recorded falls, Gihring and Lyndon Thies won decisions and Hill received a forfeit win.

“It was really exciting,” Donald Battles said. “This team was our eighth grade season team, and that season got cut short. So having all of the underclassmen back up with us, it just really made a spark for the team and we had a stride that we haven’t had in a few years. So that put us in a really good spot for coming up here.”

Posting 3-0 records for Roxana were Cobine (120), Green Jr. (132/138), Johnson (150/157) and Herring (285) while Riggs (126), Gihring (144) and Lyndon Thies (157/165) went 2-1.

The Shells had five state qualifiers and three medal winners. Herring, who was third at 285, capped his career with a 48-5 record, Lyndon Thies, who took fourth at 157, finished 50-8 and Green, Jr., who placed fifth at 132, closed with a 50-6 record. Johnson, who was one win shy of a medal at 150, went 38-10 and Riggs had a 44-12 record. The team’s captains were Herring and Johnson. Other seniors were Donald Battles, Bryan Rodriguez and Elias Thies.

“It’s really exciting on my part,” Elias Thies said. “Coach Milazzo told me to come out this year, for the first year at the high school level, and I don’t regret it at all. We placed third in the state at 1A and I just had a blast. We’ve all been friends since we were little and we’ve been on the same team and we hang out outside of wrestling. We’re brothers, so we feel confident in each other on and off of the mat.”

Fourth Place – Vandalia

The Vandals were making their first appearance since 2022 for coach Jason Clay, who has led the program for 18 years and he led 14 teams to state dual team finals and this was his fifth team to win a trophy in the competition. He was assisted by Pat Myers.

In their 42-22 semifinal loss to Coal City, the Vandals got a pin from Rosetto and a major decision from Philpot to take an early 10-0 lead. After the Coalers won the next five matches to move ahead at 17-10, Hinton recorded a fall to pull his team to within 17-16 before Coal City responded with another run of five wins and forfeited to Swyers in the final match.

Vandalia recorded 12 falls, won a match by major decision and got a forfeit win in its 82-0 win in the quarterfinals over Rickover Naval Academy, which made its debut at the Dual Team Finals. Getting pins were Rosetto, Philpot, Mabry, Matthews, Moore, junior Parker Ray, Hinton, Kleinik, Mustafa, Miller, sophomore Zander Tate and Tidwell while Yarbrough won a major decision and Swyers received a forfeit win. 

The 82 points scored by the Vandals was an IHSA record for all classes and the 82 total points tied a record for most points by both teams. In addition, it was the first time that a team had ever recorded 12 pins in a state finals dual meet, with nine being the previous high mark.

Vandalia received 3-0 efforts from Philpot (106) and Hinton (144) while Mabry (113), Yarbrough (132/138), Tidwell (190), Swyers (215) and Rosetto (285) all went 2-1.

The Vandals had six state qualifiers, with three of those winning medals and two competing in the finals. Two-time medalist Hinton, who was the runner-up to Benton’s Mason Tieffel at 138, finished 50-4. Philpot, who took second to Johnsburg’s Eric Bush at 106, capped his debut season with a 52-3 mark and Tidwell, who took fourth at 190, had a 40-12 record. 

Their other three state qualifiers were all freshmen, Mabry (39-16 at 113), Matthews (36-18 at 120) and Yarbrough (23-7 at 132). Team captains for the Vandals were Hinton and Tidwell. 

“We have a lot of stuff to learn about situations,” Clay said. “We had two tough matches today. Against Coal City we got out to a fast start and then it kind of got a little tough in the middle and we lost a couple of matches that I thought we could win but we battled. And I thought  Roxana wrestled extremely well. We beat them earlier in the season and I knew that they would come back hard and they won a couple of key matches early to kind of swing the dual, so give them credit.

“We started seven freshmen and this was their first experience, of course, so hopefully it makes them more hungry for next year. And it starts in the offseason with our training to become better. You’re not going to be better just because a year older, it doesn’t work that way. You’ve got to train for it and you have to work to become better. It will be a challenge and I’m looking forward to it.”

Another member of the team, junior Sophie Bowers, didn’t compete in the Dual Team Finals, since she was busy becoming her school’s first champion in the IHSA Girls Individual Finals, which was also taking place in Bloomington. 

Bowers won a 6-0 decision over a two-time runner-up, Canton junior Kinnley Smith, in the 125 title match. Bowers, the Vandals’ lone qualifier, opened with a win by technical fall and then won close decisions over a three-time medalist with one loss, Yorkville’s Yamilet Aguirre, and a two-time medal winner with no losses, Lakes Community’s Ava Babbs. She is the program’s second medalist, with Lauren Dothager placing fourth in both 2022 and 2023.



LeRoy/Tri-Valley (22-5) returned to the IHSA Dual Team Finals for the second-straight year, something that the Panthers hadn’t done since their great run off success from 2011-2014, where they made four state trips in four years for coach Doug DeWald, taking third in 1A in 2011 and winning the title in 1A in 2012. Two years prior to that stretch, LeRoy took second place in 1A in its first state appearance in 2009, again under DeWald.

Brady Sant Amour’s Panthers went 22-5 to cap a two-year run where they posted a 46-6 record. In 2018, he led El Paso-Gridley to the 1A quarterfinals, making this his third state team in six years. He was assisted by Brian Roberts, Sean Kennedy and Josh Sexton.

In their 54-12 quarterfinals loss to eventual champion Marian Central Catholic, the Panthers got a fall from senior captain Jacob Bischoff in the opening match and a 5-3 decision from EJ Chaon a short time later to trail 14-9 through five weights. But the Hurricanes won eight of the final nine matches with Brock Owens getting a 5-3 decision for LeRoy/Tri-Valley during that run. Tate Sigler lost 3-2 in a tiebreaker and Connor McLaughlin fell 12-9 in another close match. And the other two senior captains, Colton Prosser and Connor Lyons, both suffered losses in their final matches. The Panthers also lost to Marian Central Catholic by a 52-18 score at ABE’s Rumble.

The Panthers, who won one of the toughest regionals in 1A at Gibson City-Melvin-Sibley in dramatic fashion with a victory in the final match to edge the hosts 193.5-192, had five state qualifiers but were unable to get any state medalists this season. All of the Panthers’ defeats came against ranked teams, including 1A teams Oakwood/Salt Fork, Newman Central Catholic and champion Marian Central Catholic and also one Class 3A team, Normal Community. They earned their trip to state with a 43-22 victory over Canton at their own dual meet sectional.

The five state qualifiers were senior Bischoff (45-4), senior Lyons (42-12), junior Brady Mouser (45-5), junior Bo Zeleznik (30-15) and freshman EJ Chaon (31-14). Panthers team captains were seniors Bischoff, Lyons and Prosser and juniors Ash Osborn, Mouser, Sigler and Zeleznik.

“I’m proud of these kids, we battled all night,” Sant Amour said. “We were out-matched at quite a few weight classes but we battled and we didn’t back down. Our discussions last year was we can’t worry about the draw, we have to compete against everybody. 

“I’m proud of these kids and I’m proud that they got here, they did a heck of a job getting here. Last year we graduated three good seniors and we graduate three good seniors this year and we have a lot of good, young guys who are filling up our lineup.”


Unity (27-11) made its first trip to the IHSA Dual Team Finals since 2022 when it took third place in 1A and this was the third appearance in the state finals for coach Logan Patton’s Rockets since 2020, when they also finished in third place.

Patton completed his seventh season at the school and has a 208-50 record. His teams have won 24 or more dual meets, other than in the shortened 2020-21 season, when they had 19 wins. This was Unity’s fifth state appearance, with the first two in 1989 and 1990 in Class A under coach Bill Billman, with the first team placing second for the team’s best finish at state. Rocket assistant coaches were Josh Inman, Henry Patton, Dakota Patton and Richard Vetter.

Unity had a couple of big holes that it had to fill in its lineup since it graduated Nick Nosler, a two-time finalist and 2023 champion at 195, and fourth-place finisher Kyus Root at 170. After getting off the a 15-10 start with all of their seven losses to Illinois team coming against ranked opponents, the Rockets won their next 12 dual meets, capping things off with a 43-33 victory over Peoria Notre Dame at the LeRoy Sectional to earn their fifth state appearance.

In their 48-30 quarterfinals loss to eventual third-place finisher Roxana, the Rockets got a fall from 190 state champion Hunter Eastin in the opening match at 215. But the Shells followed that with five falls and a forfeit to build a 36-6 advantage. Taylor Finley added another pin for Unity, who won the final three matches on forfeits to Josh Heath, Ryan Rink and Thayden Root. Abram Davidson lost a 9-8 decision in the last contested match.

Unity had six state qualifiers, three medalists, two finalists and a title winner. Junior Hunter Eastin, who beat High School of Saint Thomas More’s Brody Cuppernell to win the 190 title, finished with a 49-6 record while junior Kaden Inman, who lost 8-7 to Illini Bluffs’ Jackson Carroll in the 144 title match, went 45-9 and junior Ryan Rink, who finished fifth at 165, posted a 45-12 record.

Other state qualifiers for the Rockets were senior Thayden Root (175), who went 47-11, sophomore Hunter Shike (126), who posted a 39-8 record and freshman Taylor Finley (132), who finished 41-18. Unity’s team captains were Eastin, Inman, Rink and Shike. Other seniors on the team were Symon Griffin and Kameron Novak.

“Roxana was tough,” Patton said. “Roxana was tough last year at ABE’s when we wrestled them there and they beat us, but it was pretty close. They returned everybody and obviously we didn’t, so we knew what we were getting into. (Hunter) Shike breaking his hip in the quarterfinals at the state tournament, didn’t help anything and my 113-pounder got hurt on Tuesday night, so we had to forfeit at one of those weights. 

“We knew that we needed to start at around 38, we would have felt fine. I kept trying to remind these young dudes that it was a part of the plan. I talk to them about the standard’s, the standard. It doesn’t matter who’s what team we’ve got, this is the standard to try to get down here every year and wrestle on that final day of the season.”

A day after it lost in the quarterfinals, Unity enjoyed a memorable moment as sophomore Phoenix Molina nearly became the second girl from the school to win an IHSA title, a feat that only had been accomplished by Lexi Ritchie in 2022 when she won 10-8 over Richwoods’ Jaida Johnson to win the 155 championship. Ritchie took fourth place at 155 last season.

Molina (28-6), lost 2-1 on an ultimate tiebreaker to Prairie Central junior Chloe Hoselton in the 235 title match. All three of her victories were close decisions. She won 2-1 by sudden victory over Homewood-Flossmoor’s Jocelyn Williams in her opener, edged Ottawa Township’s Juliana Thrush 4-2 in the quarterfinals and got past Oak Park and River Forest’s Sarah Epshtein 3-2 in the semifinals to reach the title mat. A year ago, Molina finished 17-5 after losing in the quarterfinals to the runner-up, Curie’s Aaliyah Grandberry. 


Riverdale (28-7) competed in the Dual Team Finals for the first time since 2007, when Myron Keppy brought his fifth team to state in 12 years. It was the ninth appearance for the Rams, who are coached by Aron Kindelsperger, who placed third at 145 in Class A for the Rams in 2005, and is in his first year of his second stint as head coach after previously leading his school in 2011-12. His assistant coaches were Justin Zigler and Heath Smith.

Returning to state this season is a big deal for Riverdale because they graduated a big part of last year’s team that was highly-ranked all season but lost to eventual runner-up Yorkville Christian in the Oregon Sectional. Among those who graduated, there were two three-time medalists that also won a state championship, Collin Altensey and Brock Smith, as well as two-time medal winner Alex Watson in Keppy’s final season as the Rams coach. 

Riverdale had a 16-6 record after losing three dial meets at ABE’s Rumble but it went on a roll in 2024 and closed with 12-straight wins which was capped with a 38-36 victory over Sandwich in the Newman Central Catholic Dual Team Sectional to earn its trip to state.

In their 54-13 defeat to eventual runner-up Coal City in the quarterfinals, the Rams lost the first five matches to trail 24-0 before Dean Wainwright won a major decision. Blake Smith later recorded a fall and Zachary Bradley won a decision. Jacob Baustian, Tharren Jacobs and Iyezaha Hill all lost decisions,

Wainwright, a sophomore who was state champion at 106 a year ago, placed third at 120 and finished with a 50-2 record. Smith, a junior who took third place at 150, finished with a 49-3 record and Bradley, a senior who qualified for state at 175, capped his career with a 49-5 record. Riverdale had two other state qualifiers who lost in the dual meet, senior Tharren Jacobs (42-5) and junior Kolton Kruse (38-16). The five qualifiers were also team captains. The only other senior on the team was Hill.

“A lot of people brought it up this year about how we were going to be because they doubted us a lot, when you lose those caliber of seniors,” Kindelsperger said. “But our kids came out this year and we showed a lot of people that Riverdale wrestling is just that, we’re always going to compete whether we’ve got two hammers or five hammers or 10 hammers. Our younger guys can compete because we’ve always got good competition in the room.

“We actually lost our first dual of the year to a conference team (Orion), and since that dual, coach (John) Zigler, coach (Heath) Smith and myself just preached that we were working for February and that’s what we’ve done. We’re a very positional team and we throw a lot of positions in the room and we preach to win positions, win periods and win matches, and that’s kind of what got us through into February, and we worked hard. Different guys came through at different times, but that’s what being a team is about.”

Rickover Naval Academy

Rickover Naval Academy (13-11) got off to a 2-6 start but went 10-4 to close out the regular season and then defeated Chicago Military Academy at Bronzeville 45-36 in the Coal City Sectional to earn its first appearance in the IHSA Dual Team Finals.

Coach Andrew Holden’s Sea Dragons failed to win a match in their 82-0 quarterfinal loss to Vandalia, which went on to claim fourth place. Holden, who’s in his second year as head coach, was assisted by Christopher Makowski, Guillermo Mejia and Brian Augello.

Rickover Naval Academy was the lone team in the 1A Dual Team Finals that had no state qualifiers. Some of the Sea Dragons’ top performers were seniors Jacob Pizarro (36-6), Breyon Wallace (25-14) and Brandon Valbuena (24-9) and junior Justin Hernandez (23-9). Team captains were Hernandez, Pizarro and Valbuena. Other seniors on the team were Mohammed Al-Tabaqchali, Christopher Chogllo, Evan Grabowski, Juan Vega Hernandez and Johnny Velez.
