I've got Killingly by a comfortable margin. E. Haven #2 followed closely by Foran at 3 and Avon at 4. Ledyard and Barlow will eek out Waterford at 7 and Guilford at 8

Agree on Killingly, I think Foran will get 2nd. Any predictions on individual weight classes?

I believe that the race for the Class M title will be between 3 schools in the end. I think I say this a lot, but it is going to boil down to which school of these 3 does the following 2 things the best. First the team that has wrestlers who outperform their seed positions and more importantly, the team whose wrestlers continue to point in the Consolation Brackets will be on top at the end of Saturday. My 3 picks, in what should be a close back & forth, are Killingly, Foran and Joel Barlow. Each of those teams has Potential Finalists as well as other wrestlers that will be disruptive in the consolation brackets. Following those 3 front runners are Waterford, East Haven, Avon and Ledyard (in no particular order). Watching results all season, I haven’t seen East Haven rise up in a tournament where there were 3 or more very good teams. Killingly has 2 wrestlers that I believe will be in the finals in Danny Charron – 106 and Turner at 170. Waterford most likely sends Smith – 113 with Zane, both Harshbergers, Concasia and Radack who should be in action late on Saturday. JB has LiCastri-182 Brault-106 and several 4-7 seeds who should be wrestling late on Saturday. East Haven has Garcia–113, Rao–195 and both DeVito’s 120 & 132. Foran outperformed EH at the SCC’s, I have to figure they will do it again in Guilford. Other schools with disruptive wrestlers but not a stable full of place-winners are Ellis Tech, Branford, and Guilford. I think they’ll finish as follows:

1 Foran

2 Killingly

3 Joel Barlow

4 Waterford

5 Avon

6 Ledyard

7 East Haven

8 Ellis Tech

9 Branford

Killingly: By a lot, excellent coaching has them prepared

Foran: Looked good at SCC Senior wrestlers stepping up

Waterford: Solid team with some probable champs

Ledyard / Avon Ledyard is solid throughout, Avon (haven't seen but heard enough)

E. Haven: Would be tougher in a dual meet event. Can Seniors win tough weights?

Guilford: Excellent Senior Leadership 1 pos. 2 Champs, young wrestlers with nothing to lose! @ HOME

I'm going with Killingly to win it,and believe they could have 4 finalists..

106...Danny Charron

113...Michael Charron

126...David Charron

170...Derek Turner

And also don't count out Rene Bernier at 285,who is coming off the ECC Title at that weight and filled with confidence

Tournament's aren't won by finalists. Killingly had 6 finalists last year and finished well behind Foran

My reply about finalists was aimed toward the post saying he thought they would have 2 finalists. I also understand you need guys to wrestle well on the losing side for the points,and with said I'm sticking with Killingly to win the ClassM this year

I would not overlook Waterford. They had a great ECC tournament. THey can score alot of points in the wrestlebacks, and have potential to have 2/3 finalists.

Agree about Waterford. I think Foran's weakness this year is no depth in the championship bracket. Last year they had 2 guys in the finals, with Luth and Qasim Khan both graduating, and placed someone in top 6 from 120-285. That may be tough to reproduce.

132 got blown up. Miller (1) and Larose (2) lose in the quarters

They were very a impressive team. Some really good wrestlers. 160 pound guy Gonzalez gave Angers everything he could handle. That was an excellent match.
