Class B Tournament Rankings
1. Omaha Skutt
2. Waverly
3. Bennington
4. Scottsbluff
5. Beatrice
6. Plattsmouth
7. York
8. Cozad
9. Blair
10. Gering
The individual rankings are based on state tournament projections and not necessarily who is better than someone else. Sometimes draws help teams out and sometimes hurts teams. The final rankings are very similar to last weeks rankings with a couple of changes. Skutt reclaims the number one spot with their potential 7 finalists. Waverly remains a solid #2 with their depth. Bennington stays at #3 and separates a little from Scottsbluff and Scottsbluff’s top end talent will keep them at #4. Beatrice remains at #5. Blair drops to #9 with the loss of Loges and Templar which puts surging Plattsmouth at #6. York taking some tough draws drop to #7. Cozad at #8 and Gering rounds out the top 10 with 5 potential state medalists.

Class B Individual Rankings
1. Ben Ziola, Omaha Skutt
2. Talon Belding, Beatrice
3. Brayton Holding, DC West
4. Greg Klucas, Waverly
5. Tannon Bellamy, Blair
6. Jude Connelly, Gering
Belding and Holding change spots otherwise the rest finish on the stand as they were previously ranked.

1. Cadyn Coyle, Bennington
2. Cole Welte, Omaha Skutt
3. Josh Sheard, Omaha Gross
4. Kaleb Keiper, Northwest
5. Royce Klucas, Waverly
6. Frost Wallace, Gering
The top 3 remain the same. Keiper moves up to #4 and Klucas down to #5. Wallace comes in at #6. Degodt gets a tough draw and will have a tough time medaling.

1. Hunter Jacobsen, Waverly
2. Chris Gamino, Scottsbluff
3. Cole Karlin, Beatrice
4. Odin Anschutz, Plattsmouth
5. Garrett Schultz, Wayne
6. Isaiah Murillo, Gering
The projected finish for this weight does not change much with only Schultz and Anschutz trading places based off their District head-to-head.

1. Chance Houser, Scottsbluff
2. Luke Farmen, Lincoln Christian
3. Daylen Naylor, Lexington
4. Gavin Vanover, Beatrice
5. Jakson McFarland, Columbus Lakeview
6. Brayden Kreikemeier, Bennington
Farmen has been under the radar all year and with his District performance jumps to #2. Both Naylor and Vanover drop one spot. District Champ McFarland comes in at #5 and Kreikemeier almost took Houser into overtime brings him in at #6.

1. Tristan Reinke, Beatrice
2. Garrison Brehm, Waverly
3. Jordan Shirley, Gering
4. Brodee Scobee, Bennington
5. Gabe Hartman, Nebraska City
6. Aaron Wilson, Cozad
Top 3 remain the same but the bottom 3 shuffle around. Scobee and Hartman have traded 1 point wins and it is Scobee’s turn at State.

1. Brayden Canoyer, Waverly
2. Chris Ramos, Omaha Skutt
3. Tyson Brown, Blair
4. Jorge Carrizales, Ogallala
5. Logan Wooten, Plattsmouth
6. Grady Meyer, Wahoo
Ramos moves up to #2 over Brown since they meet in the semi-finals and Ramos won the last meeting. Wooten and Dirks meet in the heartbreak round and I project the winner ends up 5 th . I am going with Wooten because he spent a lot of time at 150 early in the season and is wrestling tough at 138 now.

1. Tyler Harrill, Omaha Skutt
2. Braxton Peacher, Bennington
3. Drue White, Cozad
4. Tristan Campbell, McCook
5. Isaiah Foster, Wahoo
6. Jaden McFarland, Columbus Lakeview
This one could end up almost any way but the draws favor Peacher and Campbell but Peacher must get past a tough McFarland first and Greve is no slouch for Campbell to get past. Carrizales has a tough draw but can make some noise on the backside.

1. Kyler Lauridsen, Bennington
2. Garrett Rine, Waverly
3. Bryan Morales, Scottsbluff
4. Atticus Dick, Blair
5. Isaac Christo, Omaha Skutt
6. Rylan Landin, Holdrege

After Lauridsen this is pretty wide open. Rine is the clear #2 favorite but likes to keep things close, will that catch up to him here. Morales looks solid, Ging gets a tough draw, and Landin comes through for 6 th .

1. Nikolas Rotella, Skutt
2. Cesar Cano, Lexington
3. Rece Knight, Gering
4. Ty Bouaphakeo, Bennington
5. Noah Bordovsky, Wahoo
6. Brock Malcom, Cozad
Rotella continues his climb with a win over Cano at Districts. Bouaphakeo lost to Malcom earlier in the season but has been wrestling at a much higher level since so I give him a slight edge but that could go either way. Bordovsky finishes below Bouaphakeo because of the draws.

1. Riley Johnson, Omaha Skutt
2. Dalton Rhoten, Bennington
3. Brooks Loosvelt, York
4. Logan Clark, Hastings
5. Zech Roggasch, Sidney
6. Aden Smith, Waverly
Johnson is the clear #1 here. With Templar out and Rhoten’s common opponent wins over Loosvelt I give him the slight edge to make the finals. However, both Rhoten and Loosvelt have some tough quarterfinals to get through. Clark, Roggasch, and Smith round out the next 3 spots.

1. Drew Moser, Waverly
2. Frankie Trevino, Scottsbluff
3. Blaise Baughman, Blair
4. Treyton Tweton, Ashland-Greenwood
5. Merrick Johnson, Beatrice
6. Jason Hernandez, Lexington
Moser is the clear #1 here with Trevino and Baughman #2 and #3 behind him. Bower has the tough draw and drops out giving Hernandez a chance to get on the medal stand.

1. Cade Ziola, Omaha Skutt
2. Seth Erickson, York
3. Patrick McCartney, Sidney
4. Adrian Curiel, South Sioux City
5. Yordi Dominguez, Columbus Lakeview
6. Rylan Schoenback, Norris

Another clear #1 with Ziola. McCartney beat Dominguez at Districts and they may meet in consolation semi-finals which will drop one of them down to the 5 th place match. Schoenback gets the favorable draw to finish on the medal stand.

1. Mason Villwok, Elkhorn
2. Tony Palmer, South Sioux City
3. Caleb Adkins, Plattsmouth
4. Tyree Smith, Cozad
5. Sebastien Boyle, Scottsbluff
6. Carver Konzem, Ashland-Greenwood
The top 2 remain the same assuming they can get past Boyle and Adkins. Adkins beat Boyle at Districts and they may meet up again in the consolation semi-finals which will drop one of them down to the 5 th place match. Adkins won the first time, so we go with the same results. Smith has been looking really good at 215 and comes in at #4. Konzem finishes out the top 6.

1. Orion Parker, Plattsmouth
2. Joe Stein, Northwest
3. Keagyn Linden, York
4. Owen Rowell, Auburn
5. Darrius Helms, South Sioux City
6. Chris Ruano, Cozad
Parker looks to be the best here. Stein looks to be too athletic for some of these guys and I predict he wins a close quarter-final and semi-finals match to get into the finals. Linden and Rowell come back to wrestle for 3 rd place. Helms and Ruano finish on the medal stand at #5 and #6.
