Five Cougars seeded first in division tournament…
Wrestlers from the Northeast B League’s northern division will gather in Springdale this Saturday to determine seeding into the following weekend’s regional tournament at Liberty. Brackets were finalized for all 14 weight classes after a league meet in Wilbur last Saturday, and matches will begin in the Mary Walker Gym at 9:00 a.m. this Saturday morning. With only one full eight-man bracket, the district meet should move along quickly.
Five Cougars were seeded first in their respective weight brackets: Justyce Acosta at 120 pounds, Zeke Crockett at 126, Kaden Krouse at 170, Jake Jeanneret at 182, and Cole Davis at 195.
The top four wrestlers in every bracket will advance to the regional tournament at Liberty to compete against wrestlers from the league’s southern division. Four wrestlers from each weight bracket will qualify for the state tournament in the Tacoma Dome.
