Notes:  Benavides is back at 106 and appears to be the leader to start the year.  Reyes has a couple wins over rated guys and contenders, but they were close.  Seems to be a wide open weight for now.

Contenders:  Dylan Zoucha—Malcolm, Dustin Stone—Sutton, Trevor Peterson—Chase County

Notes:  Borer has already handed Hull a defeat by major decision.  After those two it hasn’t sorted itself out much.  Plenty of guys here who can get to the podium.


  1. Joseph Reimers                                                        Aquinas Catholic
  2. Treyvon Brooks                                                        Broken Bow

Contenders:  Logan Booth—Logan View, Spencer Allen—David City

Notes:   Its Reimers against the field.  A battle for second place will take place between a number of good wrestlers.


  1. Ryder Fuchs                                                               Pierce
  2. Beau Wood                                                                                Perkins County

  6. Colton Duda                                                               Broken Bow

Contenders:   Eric French—Logan View, James Escamilla—David City

Notes:  Fuchs is the defending champ and the clear leader of the field at this point.  Centennial’s Cast and Ord’s Gabriel have yet to compete.  I’m not sure on their status.

  6. Nathan Scheer                                                          St. Paul

Contenders:  Wayne Moore—David City

Notes:   Merten, Bauers, and Payne are returning medalists.  Need some time to see how this weight class shakes out.

Contenders:  Owen Schramm—Aquinas Catholic, Jake Ingwerson—David City

Notes:  Moses and Hale seem to be the clear top two, with Drake right behind them.  After that, this weight seems to be wide open.
