Class B Week Three Preview

By: Kevin Fries

Week Three of the season is already upon us. Historically this has been the last big weekend before the Christmas break. However, many tournaments that were cancelled the first week have been rescheduled for next weekend. With that said, Week Three will be another great weekend of wrestling.

Two major tournaments dot the Class B schedule– the Flatwater Fracas and the Wahoo Invite. Both tournaments feature a strong Class B representation and many of the potential team and individual match-ups will give wrestling fans a lot to talk about in the coming weeks.

What to Watch:
The Wahoo Invite could be dubbed as the “Big Boys” Invite, as the upper weights have some very talented wrestlers and the action should be top-notch. From 182 on up, a wrestling fan will not be disappointed with the battles that will take place. Seven ranked wrestlers could battle it out at 285. That is something that you typically only see at the state tournament.
