District 4 Class AA predictions

February 21, 2013 - Mitch Rupert

1, 170 pounds: The rationale behind this being the toughest weight class isn't going to change week-to-week. This isn't a weight class where you pick out a state title favorite, but it's a weight class where I may have a better chance of picking out the top six by pulling names from a hat. First-round matchups between Nick Bernstein and Robert White, Aaron Hepburn and Justin Knee, and Dan Breech and Landis Zimmerman should be absolutely stellar. The four quarterfinal bouts tonight should be even better.


Ryan Solomon, Milton, 195 pounds

There may not be a wrestler in the state in Class AA at 195 pounds who can hang with Solomon, let alone in the district. Canton's Connor Route is a bull and strong as an ox, and he's likely the only one who might be able to hang with Solomon.
