Both of my brothers qualified and will be following them mostly. One of them is a senior who is projected to make the finals on thepredicament tournament preview. On a side note there is no better sporting event to attend regardless of level or sport. If it weren't for class I would be in Des Moines Wednesday through Saturday.
My former high school sent 3, but their district was brutal with City High and City West. From what I saw, only the 130 pounder will place. He has a tough draw facing the 2 seed (WSR) in the second round if he wins Wednesday.
You think that's brutal try being borderline 2A 1A and having to wrestle Davenport Assumption for sectionals every single year.
When I was a senior in high school we had Don Bosco in sectionals and Nashua Plainfield in districts. DB sent 12, NP sent 6, we sent 3 so out of 28 possible qualifiers these 3 teams sent 21. It was tough as nails.
My high school had a down year this year. We qualified 5 guys through to state.
103 lbs. Colby Knight Fr. 37-0
140 lbs. Gabe Moreno So. 37-0
171 lbs. Mike Moreno Sr. 39-0
189 lbs. Evan Knight Sr. 30-3
215 lbs. Jesse South Jr. 33-8
You may only have 5 down there but those are some quality wrestlers right there. I'm saying team title comes down between WSR and Bett. Bett with strength in number and WSR relying on their top guys to get falls through the tourney and crown a few state champs. That team title chase could be interesting come late Saturday.
