I would like this thread to go weight by weight any changes in class L
Ok Will Hamilton needs to be moved up to #4 as he might be #3 in my opinion. Him and Linder would be a good match but he will absolutely beat mastroianni and the kid from RHAM in his sleep. Next why is Arnold ranked above McCarthy @ 120? Next Conniglio needs to be moved to 3 at 126. That’s what I think after briefly looking. One more is Mannino of Wilton should be ranked 2 over Aldi.
@sweep the leg! Thanks for the feedback, really do appreciate it. In response:
I don't see that Will Hamilton has beaten anyone ranked above him. I don't typically move guys up until they beat someone above them. That being said, 106 is always tough as they are almost all freshman with very little history prior to this year to go off. I feel good about the top 3 (see Bristol Central inv results, Hamilton lost to Lindner 10-2). I do see though that Hamilton beat a guy that beat Mastroianni, so I'll move him up one (will be updated next week after the weekend results).
@120 is a tough weight. Last weekend, at the Colter Abely, McCarthy went 1-2 and did not place. McCarthy was pinned by Stankowksi (E. Lyme) who was beat by Jutcawitz 11-2 (Jutcawitz placed 5th). #1 @120 is obvious, but 2-6 is a bit of a gauntlet and I wouldn't be surprised if the RHAM wrestler (Kanaitis) sneaks into the top 6 at the tournament (Kanaitis placed 6th at his class tournament last year). I'm going to leave it as is. This weekend MCarthy wrestles at the CT Challenge at Southington, we'll see how he does and reevaluate.
Regarding Conniglio, #3 or #4, not that significant a change. Powell-Keyton of New London placed 4th at the state open tournament last year @106. You get a lot of credit for that in the rankings. I'll wait to make a move on that one.
Moving guys up or down is fine, my big concern is that a wrestler makes the finals or even wins the consi finals (3rd place) and I don't even have him on my radar. I would feel like a big miss then. Up or down a spot or two does not really fuss me much (unless I missed a head to head match).
Thanks for your comments though, keeps me checking results.
Kanaitas beat Arnold 11-6 at Newington last week
Thanks, the flo result was not posted when i updated the rankings on my spreadsheet Monday evening.
120 pounds is a conundrum. Arnold beat Davern, Davern beat Jutcawitz, Jutcawitz placed ahead of McCarthy at both the BC invitational and the Colter Abely Classic. McCarthy beat Arnold. So....Do I move Kanaitis all the way up to #2?
I think my proposal is to move Kanaitis all the way to #2 and shift everyone else down one. I looked at his season () and his only losses are to very good wrestlers. Let me know what you think.
@sanctuss7 Its a tough call, I have not seen many results with Kanaitis. Keyton from New London should be #2 imo
