Since there are a smaller number of 3A regionals I will tackle predictions from tonight’s duals. I hate predictions, especially in wrestling, because so many variables effect the outcome. I’ll list the match ups and pick a winner without a score. Winners advance to the State Duals this Saturday at the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids. Here we go….
Bettendorf vs. Maquoketa – Bettendorf.
Indianola vs. Ankeny- Indianola
AT IOWA CITY WEST
Iowa City West vs. Keokuk – Iowa City West
AT COUNCIL BLUFFS LEWIS CENTRAL
C.B. Lewis Central vs. Urbandale – Urbandale in a tight one.
AT MASON CITY
Mason City vs. Southeast Polk – Southeast Polk
AT NORTH SCOTT (Eldridge)
North Scott vs. Cedar Rapids Prairie – North Scott. It’s a no-brainer to say a dual could hinge on bonus points, but this might be the biggest example of that tonight.
AT WEST DES MOINES VALLEY
West Des Moines Valley vs. Sioux City East – West Des Moines Valley
AT WAVERLY-SHELL ROCK
Waverly-Shell Rock vs. Cedar Rapids Kennedy – Waverly-Shell Rock
Based off those results the State Duals pairings should be:
#1 Iowa City West vs. #10 Urbandale
#4 North Scott vs. #5 West Des Moines Valley
#3 Bettendorf vs. #6 Indianola
#2 Waverly-Shell Rock vs. #7 SE Polk
Have at it. Let me know how crazy I am and then you can tell me how bad my picks are.
