Sutherland Invite Preview

By Colin Pfeiffer

The Sutherland Invite on Saturday appears on paper to be a premier tournament in Class D this week. We will see a clash of 3 top ten teams in Class D as well as some top tier individual battles in weights. 160 should be a great weight as defending state champion Austin Garcia of Morrill has made his way down to 160 after competing the first two weeks at 170. Also at 160 is current D#1 Seth Simants of Stapleton who will be looking to take out a defending state champion in consecutive weeks. A couple other weights that look to be very competitive this weekend are 120, 170 and 195. 120 has returning state medalist from the weight a year ago in Isaiah Shields of Amherst, as well as 106 defending runner up Tyler Nagel of Morrill. Also at 120, don’t sleep on freshman Cyrus Wells of Anselmo-Merna as he will look to continue his hot start. At 170 we have two ranked wrestlers that have entered in D#4 Talan McGill of North Platte St. Pats and D#5 Jain Potts of Amherst. Also at 170 we will see Derek Gibson of Maxwell who is up a weight for the second consecutive weekend after opening the season at 160. 195 is loaded with talent and should be worth the price of admission alone. The three top ranked wrestlers in Class D as well as C#2 Beau Wood of Perkins County are all entered.
