3. West Jefferson
7. Zane Trace
8. Martins Ferry
The Beckers have really impressed me so far this year. From Conanís finals appearance at Medina to Conorís 3rd place at the Gorman, they have both looked like district champion favorites.
Neer, Burger, and Kitts could all potentially win district titles as well, making Northmor the team to beat once again.
Quinn wrestled well (as always) at Brecksville winning the title, though there are still several questions about Shadysideís line-up.
Johnson could potentially be a state qualifier, though I havenít seen him or Meadows wrestle yet.
Kahl also missed Brecksville after defaulting out at Barnesville.
West Jefferson looks like a real sturdy team with Staten, Kean, and Buckland down to weight.
If Periera can make 132 as planned, he may be huge for the weight.
I like what Nelsonville- Yorkís team has done so far. Yinger has been wrestling tough, and McCollister placed over Bodkin at Brecksville. Speelman also placed and Inboden looks like he will be a staple in their line-up for the next 4 years.
A special thanks to Boro Fan for all the insight into the weights of the wrestlers, Baumís Page, the OVAC wrestling website, and Jakeís Wrestling for all of the results that they provide, and to any of the other wrestling nerds that actually read these things.
