Day 1 Class C Recap


by Dru Kastler (@KastlerDA)

Class C Team Scores/Number of Semifinalists

1. Valentine (7)                   79
2. Battle Creek (4)             37
T3. Raymond Central (3) 35.5
T3. David City (3)               35.5
5. Syracuse (3)                    35

Valentine is firmly in control of the team race. They have 7 out of their 12 wrestlers into the semifinals. Battle Creek is currently sitting in the runner up position with a slim lead over Raymond Central, David City and Syracuse. The race for runner up should be a heated one as big points will be scored in the semifinal round.

Semifinal Bouts:
There are eight unranked wrestlers who punched their ticket to the state semifinals and guaranteed themselves a state medal. So far, two top ranked wrestlers have been knocked off. It was an exciting first day of action. If you are unable to attend you can tune into the the webcast of the state semifinals tomorrow evening which I will be providing the commentary for. Good luck to all wrestlers in the semifinals and those trying to work their ways back to a medal!
