Mr. Right (Should be Mr. Wrong)
To prove my point about the toughest draw I will list the combined records that each winner
had to go thru to get their title.
106lb Combined record of opponents entering state tourney: 158-9
113lb 161-9, 120lb 158-8, 126lb 142-15, 132lb 157-17,
138lb 138-10, 145lb 138-15, 152lb 113-21, 160lb- 161-19
170lb 158-20, 182lb- 155-23, 195lb- 143-14, 285lb- 156-12 and 220lb 179-7, . Do you need any more
proof? Kral pinned Kolby, who only had l loss and that was to the guy they called the Beast (Biberstine), beat
Bass 3-0 giving him his first loss, then beat Robinson 6-1, which included a takedown and near fall, then
wrestled a very boring match(as 2 evenly matched oppents often do, but managed to end up at the top step
of the podium. Kral, Robinson and Gallegos, all from the Merrillville semi-state could on any given day beat each other , which they had done during the year, but Kral came out on top this time. To saythat Sliga or Berry could have won the 220lb class is ridiculous to say the least.
