DeKalb is scary good based on all the young talent they have

Gotta win when it counts. Louis Hayes lost to Real Woods 3 times a few years ago. Including in the finals at Sectionals. But surprised him in the finals at State. Had Hayes beat Woods at Sectionals, highly doubt he would have beat him in the state finals. Could be wrong, but I doubt it.

Iím calling a upset again. The two styles donít match well for the way that Abe wrestles now. It will work in the favor of Halvorsen I think.

I was impressed with the over all wrestling talent at Conant Sectional.

I would rate the Conant sectional 4 out of the 4.

Side notes:
- Because I'm curious, I wish someone with more time (smarter) than me calculated tournament scoring between DeKalb & OPRF.
- Fabian Lopez vs Zaccone at 132 will be one of the best matches on Thursday.
- If they both make it through their brackets, Christensen vs Dahnweih at 195 could be a great finals match-up.
132 is the toughest weight class this year. When you have a champ from the previous year (diff. weight) ranked 4th, that is pretty tough- plus more that placed last year. Very tough. 132 - 145 are the kids who have had the deepest bracket all their career. Its probably the average weight for kids who wrestled. Probably a little less than the ave weight of a kid in HS but wrestlers on average are probably leaner than the average kid. (I googled it = 125 lbs is ave. for HS, that seems a little low but that is what good said.)

From what I have seen this year, I would stretch it to 132-160. There are a number of teams, as example, Lemont and Batavia, who seemed to be stacked with top wrestlers in those weights. What made 132 so intriguing, is that there was no consensus #1. Going into sectionals, you had Burnoski-Zaccone at Bolingbrook, Bolivar-Lopez at Conant, and Pucino-Harrier at Barrington. Now you have to favor the 3 winners while I would not count out Lopez, after how he wrestled downstate last year against Odom and Precin.
