    My wife's CR Kennedy team qualified 6 to State. She was happy to see that.

    A lot of tough weights. I would really like to see them use a seeding system. It seems like a lot of the times you see what should be the finals match happen much earlier on. It would get the right people at the top of the stand.

    I was amazed when I heard that, I think they only had one or two last year.

    A lot of them are pretty young too.

    Here are a few potential second round matchups that would be worth the price of admission in 4A:
    112--Clark (SEP) -v- Hathway (ICW)
    Koeth (ICW)-v-Trizzino (Bett)
    189--Gadson (WE)-v-Knight (Urbandale)

    Clark would see Thomas of Valley in the second round followed by Hathaway in the semis if they both make it.

    Gadson and Knight will be great.

    I cant say that I would be a hugh fan of seeding this tourny not enough head to head meetings or common opponents for that matter. The system has worked for this long why fix it.

    Thanks Hawks1010--I must have read that one incorrectly. That will be a great semi, if it happens, as both are ranked in the country. I have a rooting interest with this one, as I graduated from high school with Cory Clark's Dad.

    As for as seeding the tournament, I agree, it would be extremely tough. Like you said, not a lot of head to head and everyone not seeing all wrestlers in the State. If you are going to be the Champ, you have to beat all comers, so your "seed" should not matter. Now, that the tournament is a double elmination, if you lose in the 1st round, you can still wrestle back all the way to 3rd. It used to be, that if you lost in the first round, the guy that beat you had to win in the 2nd round.....or you were done.

    Actually it used to be if you lost in the first round or second round (quarterfinals) the guy that beat you had to get all the way to the finals for you to wrestleback. They only placed the top 6 back then so the finalist had 1st and 2nd, then they each finalist beat 3 guys for a total of six guys going for the 4 remianing places (3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th). The losers in the semi's had first round consolation bye's while the other 4 went head to head. Then the winners of the consolation first round wrestled the semi losers and after those matches the winners went for 3rd/4th while the losers went for 5th/6th.

    I think that with no seeding of the tournament, the current system is much better, as a 1st round loser has the chance to wrestle all the way back to 3rd.
