ANALYSIS AND PREDICTIONS:
TEAMS: Juab wins, but PG can keep it close, this is the first time all of the Vikings have been in the same place is it enough to win a ‘ship? Uintah can also keep it close, but they will need a lot of help.
106: Ercanbrack dropped his first match of his high school career last weekend. He doesn’t drop another this week.
113: Morris makes a statement.
120: Huber and Clayburn in the final versus Mele of Green River.
126: Merkley won the TOC last year, tougher field this year, including Wyoming State Champ Phelps who is undefeated on the season.
132: Schramm is a beast. We should see a Utah Allstar level match in one Semi. The other gets the Kemmerer Ranger.
138: Channing Warner continues to roll. I expect him to earn bonus point throughout.
145: Oakley and Gus in a fun final. Gus is too funky and he wins at this tournament a lot.
152: Bowring wins, at 152 he is too big and too athletic.
160: This weight is tough. Harmon is a super tough freshman but this is his biggest test. Neal of Paonia or Sweeney of Lander Valley are both good enough to make the final. Watch for some upsets in this Bracket.
170: Richardson wins.
182: Peyton Tucker of Green River
195: Blackburn v Jackson 3
220: Mangleson will be tough to beat.
285: McKissack v Jackson 3 in the Final
