29 ranked wrestlers, which makes this one of the best of the weekend. Tons of depth in nearly every weight class. 132 takes the cake though, with four ranked wrestlers. Blevins and Williams have split matches this season. Eggleston recently dropped from 138 and is going to be one of the top guys at 132C. Can any of these guys knock off D#1 Reimers?

Also at 126, Escandon and Belville from Doniphan-Trumbull have a little rivalry going, with Escandon winning in December and Belville pulling off the upset last week in the last seconds in a bizarre finish. They could meet Friday and also at the district tournament next week. Look for St. Paul, Wood River and Ravenna to be the top teams.
