Madison Heights Lamphere, Ortonville Brandon still in the D2 mix

Even by Novi Detroit Catholic Central standards, 10 individual champions and 14 qualifiers was an imposing tally from last week’s individual wrestling district at Livonia Churchill.

That’s the kind of heat the Shamrocks will bring at Wednesday’s Division 1 team regional at Salem High School, among several sites involving Oakland County teams.

Defending D1 state champ Hartland, Southfield A&T, Warren Mott and Walled Lake Central will be at Central, and Rochester Adams hosts a regional which includes Oxford, Utica Eisenhower, Clarkston and Adams.

In Division 2, Orchard Lake St. Mary’s and Ortonville Brandon are still alive at the Goodrich team regional, and South Lyon is at New Boston Huron and Madison Heights Lamphere at Warren Woods-Tower, and in D4, Rochester Hills Lutheran Northwest is at Clinton.

The regional champ punches its ticket to the state tournament, where Catholic Central fully expects to be for the eighth straight year. The state finals will be held Feb. 24-25 at McGuirk Arena at Central Michigan University for the second straight year.

Catholic Central faces Salem in the regional semifinals and the winner meets the Livonia Franklin-Dearborn Fordson winner in the finals.

The Shamrocks blanked Walled Lake Western 83-0 to win its team district title and, with a powerful lineup, much of the same can be expected in their team regional, where Catholic Central rang up 75 points in an early-season matchup against Livonia Franklin.

The Shamrocks are 26-1 and have beaten most of the top teams in the state. Few teams have wrestled a more challenging schedule than Catholic Central.

“The more tough competition we give our guys, the better we feel they’ll be prepared at the end of the season,” said coach Mitch Hancock, whose squads have already knocked off Davison, Hartland and Westland John Glenn, all top-10 ranked teams.

“It’s a great feeling to go out and dominate like we’ve had this season,” said heavyweight Nick Jenkins, after Catholic Central beat Oxford in a dual meet. “This season we’ve been working extra hard.”

Jenkins is one of five returning state champs in the lineup with Benyamin Kamali (112), Kevon Davenport (130), Cameron Amine (145) and Ty Morland (171) the others. All won individual district titles, along with Stone Moscovic (125), Devon Johnsen (103), Jackson Ross (215), Derek Gilcher (119) and Dane Flynn (189).

Here’s a look at other team regionals involving area teams.

Region 102 at Rochester Adams

OAA Red champ Oxford takes on Clarkston, a team it has already beaten in one semifinal. The Wolves were second in the OAA Red and isn’t an easy foe since they had nine regional qualifiers to Oxford’s 11 at the individual district. The Wildcats have the upper hand, but not by much. Adams and Eisenhower each had five regional qualifiers, which could produce a close semifinal, but advantage to Adams, with Oxford eventually coming away with the title.

Region 107 at Walled Lake Central

The host Vikings beat defending D1 state champ Hartland by four points two weeks ago and Eagles coach Todd Cheney has a long memory. The Eagles’ experience and ability - they won the KLAA individual tournament - will be the difference in another close match. They’ll end up facing and winning against Warren Mott, who’ll wind up beating a game Southfield A&T squad in a close matchup.

Region 110 D2 at Goodrich

Orchard Lake St. Mary’s can rumble in a few weight classes but not enough to overcome Linden, while Marysville placed fourth in the Macomb County tournament in December, too much for Ortonville Brandon to overcome.

Region 115 D2 at New Boston Huron

South Lyon can match up with Trenton, who probably has enough to tame the Lions, but not against Tecumseh, who is likely to take the regional crown.

Region 116 at Warren Woods-Tower

The host school, runnerup to a strong Macomb Dakota squad at the Macomb County tournament, is enjoying its best season in years and Madison Heights Lamphere will witness it first hand as Woods-Tower takes the regional title.

Region 130 at Clinton

Rochester Hills Lutheran Northwest runs into a brick wall in Clinton, who should easily capture the regional crown.
