Post 2020 Class L updates here.
sanctuss7, thank you. I agree you did a great job. I agree with Scott, Xavier 2nd.
My final class L rankings have been uploaded.
My team place prediction:
1. Simsbury (but much closer than I previously thought)
2. Bristol Eastern
4. Bristol Central
5. New Milford
I am not ranking Carter Sirois, Simsbury @160, even though he is currently seeded 6th on the Class L sheet. I am assuming that they are hoping for a recovery and he can wrestle. I previously had Sirois at 2nd. I hope the young man can go, but shoulder injuries in wrestling are tough to recover from (I know, my boy has had them before). So I am leaving him off.
I'll do a post-mortem next week after the tournament, see how I did. Good luck to all the wrestlers who've worked hard all season to get to this point. See you all in Bristol.
Sanctuss7 thank you for all your postings this season. I think you will win the best "Ranker" of the year title.
I think it will be:
160 Has some guys close to being Ranked.... Bentley from EO Smith, Horn from Pomperaug, Ganino from Hand, Rucker from Wethersfield, if you needed to slot one in.
Just heard Sirois from Simsbury is out for season with a shoulder injury
yes, he couldn’t finish the match with Vitti at ccc tournament, looked to be in a lot of pain
Sirois is a tough loss for Simsbury. I'll take this as confirmed out and remove him from my rankings. Anyone know who will be @160 for Simsbury? They're deep enough, that may warrant a ranking.
Also, I noticed Tyler Coiro also forfeited out of the tournament. Is he OK? Can anyone confirm whether he will be in or out this weekend? And Also, Ryan Guilfoyle didn't wrestle @ 182 pounds? Will he be in the Class L Tourney? Araniti @195?
I will likely update Simsbury's rankings when I see the seeding sheets come out so I at least have their wrestlers right. They had a lot of different guys at the CCC tourney than I had ranked.
No idea on 160. Coiro was sick i heard tried to wrestle but was gassed so he forfeited out. I think both Guilfoyle’s sat out to nagging minor injuries so it was more for rest purposes. Araniti I heard is out for season but I have no confirmation. Will know tomorrow when seeds come out.
120 Pounds: With Mason Lishness beating Jacob Aldi in last nights duals, I plan to update the 120 pound rankings. New rankings (when I get a chance to update online, can't do it from work).
1. Iamunno, Joe North Haven
2. Lishness, Mason Bristol Eastern
3. Aldi, Jacob Bristol Central
4. Jutcawitz, David Pomperaug
5. Mannino, Max Wilton
6. Guglietta, Jason Farmington
A few other minor changes from the mid-week duals, but nothing major. I commend Lishness and Aldi putting it on the line in the last dual of the season. Lots of kids ducking and preserving records at this stage of the season.
most times I feel like that’s more on the coach than the wrestler
I agree, that's on the coach.
For what it's worth, I would put Loria from Xavier 6th.
Where was Pomperaug Grant Horn last night? Did not wrestle Balow's Alex Wassink? That would have been a good match to watch.
I will be updating the Class L rankings late this evening. Biggest change is the triumphant return of Tyler Sung from New Canaan. Looks like he's going 152. I have slotted him at #1 based on his history and pre-season rankings. Welcome back Tyler and good luck in the post-season tournaments.
Light on action this weekend. The Bobcat classic had a few minor upsets and Simsbury dueled Bristol Eastern. A few minor upsets, but nothing earth shaking there. The Farmington duals featured four class L teams, but I was only able to find results on Flo for Maloney vs Pomperaug. If anyone has the full results, especially the Middletown duel results, I would love to see them.
