106- Teusch, Shearer, Prater, Vega. Most likely going to see Teusch and Shearer in the finals, will be interesting to see how Teusch bounces back from his sickness from last week's conferences. Odds are that Vega and Prater will see eachother in the finals
113- Shearer, Goheen, Just, Kuhl. The older of the Shearer brother's is definitely the top dog here, and the other guys will be scrambling to get placements. Just can have a rematch with Goheen in the Semi's, while Kuhl can be tested by Shearer in the other Semi's.
120- Standridge, Wertman, Burns, Cornewell. Standridge the favorite to win this one, and has been dominant at this weight class this entire season. If Burns was on the other side of the bracket, we’d most likely see them both in the finals, but let’s see if Wertman can take down the top dog. Semi’s between Burn and Standridge will be a good one to watch
126- Hall, Saylor, Getty, Heath. Hall is dominant on top, is hard to ride, and fast on his feet. He’s the one to beat, and Saylor is going to see if he can find a chink in Hal’s armor. Don’t count out Heath though, he’s a tough nosed kid that can do a lot on a good day. Expect to see him battle Getty for 3rd.
132- Haught, Schrock, Weilbaker, Busz. Haught will take the crown this weekend at 132, beating Schrock in dominant fashion 2 weeks ago. Maybe Schrock can pull a magic trick and show Haught that he isn’t to be messed with. But, to get to the finals, Schrock will have to battle Weilbaker in the Semi’s.
138- Burns, Stonestreet, Scott, Maggard. Burns the favorite to win this one by far. It will be a battle for the rest to scramble for placements.
145- Leazier, Garrett, McKinley, Davis. Leazier has shown a dominant performance this season, and expect to see it again this weekend. Expect the same as 138 for the other guys to scramble for placements swell.
152- Arney, Fielden, Leeper, Grover. One of the loaded weights at this tournament. You have Arney, a returning state qualifier, then you have Fielden who is a Fargo AA, and Leeper who can surprise anyone and put them on their back. Semi’s between Fielden and Leeper and the winner vs Arney will be some of the best matches to watch this entire Sectionals.
160- Reed, Hicks, Baker, Bessesen. Reed has been walking through his competition this entire season, but expect to see a nail biter between Reed and the winner of the semi’s between a tough Baker and even tougher Hicks.
170- Minnick, Byman, Hills, Bergman. Like boomer said earlier, Minnick is prime and ready to tear up the mat. Byman vs Hills will have a nice Semi’s match to see who can take on the monster
182- Rucinski, Bevis, Willson, Holly. Decent bracket overall, with a tough quarterfinals match between Willson and Holly. And the winner of that slugfest gets to vs 1st seed Joey Rucinski, who should have this one locked up, but you can’t count out a solid-looking Bevis.
195- Agnew, Davis, Smith, Debolt. 2 studs, on opposite ends of the bracket as the 1st and 2nd seeds. Going to be a, and I quote, “slobberknocker!” In the finals between Angew and Davis. Expect to see Smith and Debolt, two wrestler’s that shouldn’t be counted out, meeting in the conso finals.
220- Smith, Wicker, Graft, Muncie. Another solid weight class, with 5 solid kids. Good matches to watch are the quarterfinals between Miller and Muncie, and both of the Semi’s on either side of the bracket. And to follow that, you’re going to have a solid finals match. My money is going to go with Smith though.
285- Leeper, Hathaway, Rennaker, Mueller. Leeper is the obvious favorite to win this one. It will be interesting to see how the rest do to try and gain placement’s.
