Two Indians are “must watch matches” These boys are ready I can tell you that much!
Class 3A First Round Must Watch Matches
By: Kirk Crittenden
120 – #5 Noah Hughes-Reilly (Valley, WDM) vs #7 Connor Sexton (Indianola)
This one is a rematch of the Ed Winger semi-finals, Hughes-Reilly won that one 1-0. Hughes-Reilly’s only losses at this weight in class have been to #2 Gauge Perrien (SEP). Sexton comes in fresh off a runner-up finish in District 1 where he defeated No. 8 Max Tracy (DCG) 3-1 in SV-1 before falling to Perrien 5-2 in the finals.
285 – #3 Eagan Lickiss (Indianola) vs #5 Omar Begic (Waterloo East)
Lickiss was 5th last year at this weight, Begic was 7th. This will be the third time these two giants have met in their career, with each wrestler owning a victory in the series.
