What to Watch:
Class A heavy tournament and features most of the Class A teams that don’t head to the Flatwater Fracas.  However, rated Class B teams York and Ralston should be very competitive for the team title here. Deepest weight class is 220 with three ranked wrestlers.

220 – #1C Peyton Cone (Archbishop Bergan); #5A Ryan Zatechka (Omaha Westside); #5B Jacob Ludwig (Ashland); #8C Jon Matulka (Bishop Neumann)
285 – #1A Cade Haberman (Omaha Westside); #1B Trevor Brown (Waverly); #4C Kale Nordmeyer (Malcolm); #5C Eli Simonson (Archbishop Bergan)

What to Watch:
One of the bigger tournaments on the docket this weekend.  It features teams from all four classes, including four ranked teams. Aquinas looks like the team to beat.  Look for Bergan, Wahoo and Lexington to finish strong in the team race. 

120, 170, 220, and 285 all feature four ranked wrestlers and the cross class match-ups should be very intriguing at these weights. With over 30 ranked wrestlers this should be an exciting event. Trevor Brown of Waverly has yet to see the mat this season, but it would be the marquee match if him and Haberman were to wrestle. At 170, the top two wrestlers Canoyer and Hancock could meet up.

Ranked Wrestlers:
113: #1C Casey Benavides (Bridgeport); #2B Quenton Chavez (Gering); #8B Austin Munier (Sidney)

138: #5B Gage Stokey (Ogallala); #6B Nate Rocheleau (Gering)
145: #2C @ 138 Trevor Widener (Bridgeport); #7B Treven Melroy (Holdrege)

Nice tournament out west featuring ranked Gering and Bridgeport. 113 is a fantastic weight. B4 teams Gering, Holdrege, Ogallala and Sidney are all competing with some district seeding implications at stake.
