Nelson Brands Iowa city west 3a

Class 3A

106 – Schriever, Oldham, and Braswell all on the same side is a tough draw. Freshman #2 Ben Monroe seems like the favorite on the top side but can #5 Gottschalk stop him?

113 – The top 3 guys are all on the top side with Drew Bennett, Kyle Biscoglia, and Kobey Pritchard. Whoever survives this meat grinder will be a favorite in the finals.

120 – Seems like a pretty well split up bracket. Should be a good chance of Dylan Albrecht and Gauge Perrien battling for a chance at #1 Brody Teske in the finals.

126 – The top 4 guys could all make the semifinals with Foreman and Midkiff on top side and Price and Brown on the bottom side.

120 – #2 Carter Cox vs #4 Shea Ruffridge is a great first round match and the winner should be the favorite to make the finals. #1 Bryce West is the definite favorite on the bottom side but #5 Thompson has been red hot lately and should be waiting in the semis.

126 – #1 Millage and #2 West are on opposite sides and appear to be on a crash course for the finals.

132 – The top side is tough with #1 Curry, #3 Robertson, #5 Fye appear to be the top guys on this side. #4 O’Shea, #6 Sieperda, and #7 Steffen are the highest ranked guys on the bottom half.

138 – Top half is LOADED with #1 Geerts, #3 Abbas & #4 Rozeboom. #2 Noftsger and #5 Vest could meet in the other semifinal.

145 – It’s a shame that #1 Leisure and #2 Reick have to meet in the quarters but it should make for a great early match. #3 Xavier Miller appears to be the favorite to reach the finals from the top side.

152 – #1 Joe Kelly will get tested with #5 Pecinovsky 1st round and #2 Judge in the quarters. #3 Kelso and #6 Van Weelden appear to be the favorites on the top side but don’t sleep on #9 Krueger who has been wrestling well.

160 – #2 Gorman looks like the favorite on top side but don’t sleep on #5 Roland vs #9 Bartow (who knocked out #1 Hageman at districts) in the first round. #3 Broderson and #4 Nelson could meet in the other semifinal.

Class 1A

106 – #1 Wilson and #2 Siebrecht could see each other again in the semis and have split this season. I still think that the winner of #5 Nieman and #8 Cassady could be a sleeper on this side too. #3 Kimball and #4 Allard could meet in the semis on the top half.

113 – Cael Happel continues to prove he’s the #1 guy and should make the finals here. #3 Meeker faces #5 James in a great 1st round match. #4 Krager, #6 Ragsdale & #7 Hall are also on that side as well.

182 – #1 Schumacher should make the semis where he could face #4 Sims. #2 Bishop, #3 McDowell, #5 Schwenn, & #6 Oveson should make for some great matches on the bottom side.

220 – #1 Johnson lost to #2 Rief at districts but appears to have the better draw to make the finals from top half. Rief is joined on the bottom side by #3 Francis, #4 Clark, #6 Bonestroo, & #10 Keehner.
