I know that I said I wouldn’t be posting this weekend, but I lied. I missed you all too much. I’m up in Glens Falls for some fall sports state championships, and had a few minutes of free time, which I’ve been using to work on my wrestling preview (which runs in Friday’s paper).
Part of my preview will feature the top 10 teams to watch and the top 10 wrestlers to watch. I’ve already made up lists for each, but there are a few tough calls (I could make a list of the top 100 wrestlers pretty easily, so cutting it down is a difficult task). That’s where you come in.
I figured to keep the conversation going over the weekend, I’d ask you all to give me your lists. For the teams to watch, I’m doing the top seven in Division 1 and the top three in Division 2 (that third D2 school could be about five different teams). For the wrestlers to watch, my list is pretty much dominated by light-to-middle weights. That’s where most of the more accomplished wrestlers in the section come from. In D1, there are no returning section champs above 171 pounds. But I’ll have a place to fit some heavyweights to watch elsewhere in my preview, so drop some of those names if you like, as well.
So, let’s see what you guys think. I know we’ve got some opinionated bloggers out there…
