Comments: Bennett last years State Champ at 106 remains undefeated. However did have a state finals caliber match against Class C#2 -Cole Kunz of Central City that he won 3-3 in the Ultimate Tie Breaker. Paxton of Mullen loss a 10-8 decision to Underwood of Chadron. Bohac of Eat Butler lost in the finals of Wisner Pliger to Class A Omaha Bryan and in a dual to Kavan of David City Aquinas.

4. Cauy Morgan, Sutherland Fr. (25-3)
5. Ashton Sinn Jr. (30-5)
6. Logan Peterson, South Loup Sr. (19-5)
Comments: Ashburn returning State Champ still undefeated. You got to be pretty good just not to get pinned against this kid. He has only had 3 matches not end with a pin. Ellis still only has one loss to Ashburn in Sudden Victory. I would imagine they will see each other again before state. #3 Gipe is still unbeaten and recently picked up a 9-2 decision over #4 Morgan. Morgan continues an impressive freshman campain. #5 Sinn hasn’t lost to a Class D opponent this year and has an impressive record with the strength of schedule Thayer Central wrestles. This is a pretty deep weight class with lots of guys who could be ranked.
1. Adam Miller, Elkhorn Valley Sr. (26-0)
2. Zach Dickau, North Central Sr. (20-1)
3. Nickolas Kuehn, Kenesaw So. (20-1)
4. Koby Smith, Elm Creek Sr. (19-3)
5. Jacoby Mann, Winside Jr. (20-3)
6. Brenner McLaughlin, Thayer Central Jr. (30-5)
Comments: No Changes here this weight class has some really solid wrestler in it. # 1 Miller Remains Unbeaten with 23 pins and his closest match being a 6-4 decision over Class B#4 Bohling of Pierce. #2 Dickau only loss remains a 2-1 decision to Bohling. Kuehn’s only loss remains an 8-6 decision to Class C#2 Waddington of Wood River. Both Dickau and Kuehn have close wins over #4 Smith. #6 McLaughlin of Thayer Central does have 5 loss, but again Thayer wrestles a pretty tough schedule and none one those losses are to a class D opponent.
1. Jeremy Larson, Brady Sr. (29-0)
2. Jon Peterka, Sutherland Jr. (30-3)
3. Thomas Klemesrud, North Central Sr. (21-5)
4. Tanner Frahm, Plainview So. (21-1)
5. Maverick Hagemann, Elkhorn Valley Fr. (23-5)
6. Colton Pouk, Perkins County Jr. (15-4)
Comments: The top spot here still belongs to # 1 Larson who has pinned all but 4 opponents and closest match is a 7-2 decision. #2 Peterka improves his record to 30 and 3 with 2 of those losses to Larson. Frahm lost his first match of the season to Kester of Neligh- Oakdale. Frahm and Hagemann have met this year which Frahm won 4-2. Knew to the ranking is Colton Pouk who picked up a fall over Pervious #6 Drake Belville. Pouk also has a 4-3 Decision over Peterka from the first week off competition.
1. Samuel Foster, SutherlandJr. (32-0)
2. Hunter Heath, Minden So. (29-3)
3. Art Escalante, Winside Jr. (28-3)
4. Garrett Latimer, Southwest Sr. (31-4)
5. Dylan Higby, Clarkson/Leigh Fr. (25-6)
6. Kyle Oakley, Central Valley Jr. (21-5)
Comments: #1 Foster remains unbeaten. #2 Heath now has 3 losses to Omaha Skutt, Waverly and Colby Kansas. #4 Latimer now has a loss to Foster 10-4. New to the ranks this week is # 5 Dylan Higby. Higby has been wrestling at 138 and 132 this year. We will have to wait and see what weight he decides to wrestle at districts. It seems that each weight class so far has a stand out freshman to keep an eye on for the next few years. Kyle Oakley of Central Valley is still having a solid year as well he did how ever loss a match to Latimer by fall. The 5 and 6 spots here were really hard to decide on. Two other kids you could make a compiling argument for are Fjell and Mosel.
1. Ruger Reimers, Palmer Sr. (31-2)
2. Gabe Escalante, Winside Jr. (27-3)
3. Nolan Blevins, Weeping Water Sr. (27-6)
4. Grady Belt, Shelby Rising City Jr. (23-3)
5. Hunter Cook, Sutherland Jr. (31-4)
6. Brooks Armstrong, Red Cloud/Blue Hill So. (23-4)
Comments: #1 Reimers and #2 Escalante still looks like the men to beat here. Brooks dropped a 9-8 decision to Smith of Fullerton. Previous #6 Tunender is up at 152 and former 152 pounder Cook joins the ranks at #5. A weight class that was missing a little bit has when a couple guys drop weight and now it’s looking like there is going to be some all out brawls to earn a spot on the podium. Guess we’ll see in just 4 weeks!

3. Levi Lewis, North Central
4. Ayden Molzahn, Alma

Perez has wrestled some tough competition to some close matches to enter the ratings at 152. Rudolf is also back in action to start the new year and is off to a solid start.

Not much has changed at HWT. Kerner is still the favorite here. Stubbs has been down as low as 195 for a few duals, but we will keep him here for now. Christiancy was able to gain a decision over Branic. Branic also has beaten Shoemaker twice recently. Pugh still has the head to head advantage over a few contenders.
