Regardless of Saturday's result at state, Wheeler's 2018 season will be one to remember. The Bearcats have dominated Northwest Indiana, racking up 145 goals while allowing just 12 en route to a 22-0 season thus far.
Wheeler faces an old nemesis on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. CT in Indianapolis, as it sees Evansville Mater Dei for the second straight year. After a 1-0 overtime loss to Mater Dei at state last year, the Bearcats have been anxious for a rematch all year. The match between the top two teams in the Indiana Soccer Coaches Association Poll shouldn't disappoint — meet the No. 1-ranked Bearcats below.
