Well, it’s all over here at 6A. At least the first day. The mats are empty — oh wait, two kids just walked onto the mat, shook hands and are hitting each other up side the head. Oh, now there’s a takedown. I don’t know who these kids are, but they’re looking good.
It was a good first day, though, and I love this venue. I know 5A and 6A go back to the Kansas Coliseum next year, but I’m loving how well-lit and spacious this is. It’s a little crowded around the mats, but it’s the same at the Coliseum.
There definitely was some good wrestling going on, too. Goddard was dominant. I’d love to find a different word for the Lions, but I can’t. I mean, they got 9 into the semis and advanced 7 to the championship? Hello, that’s amazing. Derby got 9 in as well, but only two are in the title matches. The Lions scored 177 points, while second-place Derby has 127.5. They sucked up most of the points as third-place Heights has 73.
The City League is well represented, with Heights and Northwest each with three in the championships.
In 5A, Carroll is doing as expected — rolling. The Eagles lead Ark City 154.5 to 96.5. In 4A, Clay Center leads Andale 100 to 88.5.
Class 3-2-1A is tight with Smith Center holding a narrow lead — 103, Philllipsburg 101.5 and Beloit 97.5
All in all, a good day. Good fans, none too crazy. Good matches, no ridiculous or outrageous events. That’s what I like.
So tomorrow should be even better. I hope.
