Not a ton to be discussed here. Clinton’s regional provided them with a great window of opportunity, and they went ahead and seized that opportunity. However, with 5X reigning champs Hudson up next that window has officially slammed shut. Both teams were in the same individual regional, and Hudson qualified 14 to Clinton’s 0. Thus, any Clinton win over a Hudson starter will be at lease a mild upset, at least based on last weekend’s results.

What a difference a month or two can make. CCC made waves when they knocked off perennial power Hesperia in February, but since then the tables have turned considerably. Several key starters have returned to the lineup for Hesperia that were absent in their previous dual. Conversely, CCC appears to now be without the services of Garner Cusack and Lincoln Burnham, a pair of seniors and likely state placers. Their lineup is still very solid, but I don’t think they’re deep enough to make up for the presumed absence of Cusack and Burnham.

Of the D4 quarters, this is the one I expect to be most competitive. Both of these teams managed to stay under the radar a bit this season, but either would be worthy of a spot in the semis. The availability of a few key wresters on both sides remains in question, and their presence, or lack thereof, could very well make or break the dual. For Lawton, 2013 SQ’s Blake Parker and Beach have not competed in quite some time. Without them I think Lawton is a mild favorite, but if they can get both back it would make this a very tough dual for Springport to win. On the other side of things, Sean O’Hearon was a hammer freshman all year for Springport, but did not compete at districts. Of the 3 mentioned I think he is most likely to compete, and also probably the most critical to his team’s chances of advancing.

Norway has really emerged as a U.P. power of the past couple seasons, and will be making their second consecutive appearance in BC. However, like last year they find themselves a bit overmatched in the quarters. There will be some good individual battles scattered throughout, but New Lothrop simply has too much firepower for this dual to be overly close.
