Top 10 Class C Tournament Rankings
2. Aquinas Catholic
3. David City
4. Logan View
6. Broken Bow
8. Raymond Central
10. Archbishop Bergan
Comments: Valentine takes the top spot and Aquinas takes #2. Logan View has gotten some help from some wrestlers that previously weren’t accounted for. Ord still relying on it’s top end points and the same for Broken Bow. Amherst leaving Potts at 220 is a really nice move for them. Uncertainty surrounding Bergan’s Caden Arps influences these rankings this week quite a bit.
Top 10 Class C Duals Rankings
1. David City
4. Logan View
8. Twin River
9. Battle Creek
10. Raymond Central
Comments: Logan View makes a big jump and the contrast here is that you see some teams that have been performing very well in duals this season that may not have the lineups to maximize state tournament points but pose very big threats in dual tournaments. Conestoga, Twin River and Battle Creek are those teams.

Comments: Kluthe dropped to 152 and has competed very well. The top 4 here are very close and 5 throw the rest of the field isn’t all that far off. This is a fun weight to watch.

3. Dylan Zoucha – Malcolm (12th)
4. Josh Warren – Bridgeport
5. Eric Hoesing – Hartington Cedar Catholic
6. Koa McIntyre – Archbishop Bergan (10th)
Comments: No change to the top 3. Still going to give the nod to Brandt even though it very well could be Vodicka.
1. Lathan Duda – Broken Bow, (11th)
2. Cole Stokebrand – Amherst (12th)
3. Kyle Sterup – Cross County/Osceola, (11th)
4. Trevor Peterson – Chase County, (12th)
5. Spencer Allen – David City (12th)
6. Owen Snipes – Conestoga, (12th)
Comments: Lathan Duda continues to lead the charge at 182 and has a 27-0 record. Cole Stokebrand did wrestle him to a 10-5 decision. With those to in the same district if they meet in the finals that would put them on opposite sides at the state tournament and we all know each time you wrestle someone it gets a little tougher. Trevor Petersons only loss was an 8-1 decision to Duda as well. Then you have Kyle Sterup is also at 31- 0 and Owen Snipes who has 2 of 4 losses to Duda (18-3, 10-3). Should be an exciting 2nd round at State just to see who makes the semi-finals lots of talent here.
1. Ethan Gabriel – Ord (12th)
2. James Escamilla – David City (11th)
3. Logan Booth – Logan View (10th)
4. Nolan Schultz – Aquinas
5. Hunter Thoenen – Conestoga (12th)
6. Tucker Alexander – Twin River (12th)
Comments: Gabriel has solidified himself as the favorite after a dominating win over class B Seth Firmanik of Fairbury. Gabriel took charge of the match early and never relented and finished with a pin. Looks as if the rest are chasing him. Same story 2 years ago and then Fuchs of Pierce upset Gabriel in the quarters at state. Can’t count anyone out.
1. Peyton Cone – Archbishop Bergan (12th)
2. Landon Beaver – Wisner-Pilger, (12th)
3. Wayne Moore – David City, (12th)
4. Jon Matulka – Bishop Neumann, (12th)
5. Dahlas Zlomke – Battle Creek (10th)
6. Jarin Potts – Amherst (12th)
Comments: Returning state champ Peyton Cone is off to a good Senior campaign does have a 5-4 lost to Carter Throener of Howells-Dodge. This is a though weight class to do with some guys moving up from 195 and others moving down from 285. 1 through 3 I feel pretty solid about 4-6 there are a lot of name that could go there. Potts has beaten stott who beat Moore but we will wait to move until season moves along more
1. Jakob Jerabek – Arcadia/Loup City (12th)
2. Eli Simonson – Archbishop Bergan (12th)
3. CJ Hoevet – Ord (12th)
4. Jake Ingwersen – David City (11th)
5. Kale Nordmeyer – Malcolm (10th)
6. Alex Miller – Logan View
Comments: Not much changed other than we flipped 2-3 and then added Miller at #6 after Scheer from St. Paul has dropped to 220.
