106: NP’s CJ Red (30-0) is the No. 1 seed and ranked No. 1 in the state by IndianaMat.com. He’s already beaten No. 2 seed Cael McCormick of Yorktown (26-4) 11-2. Red is the clear favorite.
113: MV’s Colin McAtee (15-1) will likely face NP’s Rylan McCarty (25-4) in the finals. McCarty placed third at 120 last year.
120: With NP’s Tommy Cash out with a concussion, that means there will be no showdown between the class’ top-ranked wrestlers. Yorktown’s Schuyler Phillips is ranked No. 1 and is the defending HHC champ at 113.
126: NP’s Taylor Fee (22-7), second at 113 last year, is the top seed.
132: Yorktown’s Dalton Baysinger (29-3) won this weight class last year and is the No. 1 seed, with G-C’s Sam Locke (23-4, No. 15 in Indiana) entrenched as the No. 3 seed. The two should meet in the finals if Locke can get past Delta’s Adam Gordon (25-2).
138: No. 1 seed Chandler Carroll of Yorktown (26-1, No. 3 in Indiana) is the reigning belt-holder at 126. NP’s Gordon Wagner (19-3, No. 15 in Indiana) has to get past G-C’s Shawn Fogle (16-9) in order for the top two seeds to meet.
145: This is stacked draw. Eli Walker (26-1) is the top seed and No. 3 in the state. Barring a pair of upsets, NP’s Robbie Elsea (27-2, No. 7 in Indiana) and Shelbyville’s Kyle Uhls (21-1) will meet in the semifinals.
152: G-C’s Josh Farrell (25-0, No. 2 in Indiana) is the heavy favorite. He’ll take on MV’s Jagg Nunez (3-9) in the opening round, and if the bottom half of the bracket goes chalk, NP’s Logan Hunt (23-8) is Farrell’s finals’ opponent.
160: Yorktown’s Rhett Hiestand (30-2, No. 5 in Indiana) is the No. 1 seed, with a possible challenge coming from G-C’s Joe Hoskins (18-7) at No. 2.
170: The most wide-open field in the tournament. Garrett Hittle of Rushville (19-1) is the top seed and placed third at 160 last season. G-C’s Austin Rose (17-7, No. 12 in Indiana) and MV’s Zach Gradowski face off in the first round.
182: NP’s Brian Wagner (28-2, No. 5 in Indiana) has an easy path to the finals. G-C’s Cameron Nuckols (17-7) could play spoiler.
195: This is a brand new field, with only Rushville's Tristenn Miller (12-3, No. 2 seed) returning from last year. The Dragons’ Noah Grable (21-8, No. 1 seed) is the favorite.
220: Rushville’s Robbie Hadley’s (18-3) is the top seed, but keep an eye on NP’s Gabe Estes in his first varsity match against No. 2 seed Noah Little (26-7) of Yorktown.
285: Other than 145, there’s not a tougher draw. G-C’s Tyler Beeson (20-5) is the defending champ, but is the No. 3 seed. Beeson and NP’s Willie Bryan (25-5) will likely meet in the semis, a rematch of last year’s finals. The winner will take on Rushville’s Joe Garland (20-0), Pendleton Heights’ Skyler Prol (23-6) or Shelbyville’s Tyler Uhls (12-3), last year’s third-place winner.
