- #2 Anthony Sederburg, Rolla vs. #6 Jackson Shea Battle
There are no returning state medalists in the draw at this weight, but that does not mean this is a weight devoid of talent. The top quarter will likely run through #2 seed and #1 ranked Cayden Auch of Neosho, a freshman who has put together a really strong season. Opposing him from the second quarter will likely be the winner of the quarterfinal between #4 Deason and #5 Carter. Auch owns a pin over Carter from earlier in the season and he outplaced Deason at the Kansas City Stampede (3rd and 14th respectively). It should be a really fun quarterfinal, but I will take Deason to win beat Carter. Auch will advance in the top half and be a finalist here.
