Caravan’s Hoey picks Indiana on Signing Day
Mount Carmel senior wrestler Dillon Hoey can’t pick the best thing he likes about wrestling; he loves every aspect of the sport. A Beverly resident and St. Barnabas Elementary School graduate, Hoey closed an impressive high school career by signing on April 12 with Indiana University (IU) in Bloomington, Ind., to continue his academic and athletic career. “When you’re out there wrestling, it’s just you,” Hoey said. “If you make a mistake, you can’t blame it on a teammate or your team. I love the discipline. It takes so much mental toughness to keep the discipline, work out and make weight. I’ve also met some of my best friends through wrestling.”
MOUNT CARMEL'S ERIC CORREA DELIVERS RUNNER-UP FINISH IN DIVING
Eric Correa is getting closer to the top. The Mount Carmel junior took four more steps up the ladder toward winning his first diving state championship Saturday when he finished second in the state finals at New Trier. It was the second state medal in as many years for Correa, who placed sixth last year. His two-day total of 499.60 was surpassed only by Niles North senior Maxim Royzen, who tallied 527.50. "He did amazing," Mount Carmel coach Christina Grunauer said. "He's going to take it all next year."
MOUNT CARMEL'S DAVID RIOJAS BEATS OLD TEAMMATE TO WIN STATE TITLE
Growing up, Mount Carmel senior David Riojas was a kids wrestling teammate of Lyons' Johnny Mologousis with the Romeoville Spartans. Riojas wanted nothing more Saturday than to spoil his friend's undefeated season. "The whole tournament, I wanted it to be me and him (in the finals)," Riojas said. "As soon as I saw the bracket boards I was like, 'I've got to make it and I've got to beat him.'" Riojas got his wish and delivered, upsetting Mologousis 9-4 in the Class 3A 170-pound state championship match at the State Farm Center.
WOMEN WHO COACH BOYS TEAMS STRIVE TO BECOME A BIGGER PART OF THE GAME
Hannah Puckorius, Mount Carmel basketball coach, is one of the few females who coach a boys high school team in the Chicago area. Her sport is especially selective when it comes to female coaching involvement. Some boys sports, such as volleyball and swimming, always have featured female coaches as part of the game. In others, like basketball, baseball, football and wrestling, female coaches are very rare. Women who choose to coach typically male-dominated sports face many challenges, but the ones who spoke with the Tribune hope they can show sex doesn't decide one's coaching capability — no matter the sport.
