Notable First Round Matches (Team Race or Ranked vs. Ranked)

#3 Cayden Dotson, Blue Springs vs. HM Tyler Bierman, Holt
Cael Keck, Park Hill vs. Anthony Chrun, Ritenour
#4 Ethan Barr, Hickman vs. HM Riley Wiseman, Jackson
#1 Easton Hilton, Liberty vs. Mason Apple, Francis Howell North

Notable Potential Quarters:

#3 Cayden Dotson, Blue Springs vs. #6 Devin Haag, Seckman
#5 Peyton Moore, Nixa vs. Cael Keck, Park Hill
#2 Colton King, Desmet vs. #4 Ethan Barr, Hickman
#1 Easton Hilton, Liberty vs. Orion Bowers, Lees Summit West


In Our first quarterfinal we will see #3 Dotson and #6 Haag. Contrary to the rankings Haag earned a 2-1 victory over Dotson at the Winnatonka tournament. I have Haag winning here and advancing to the semis in a tight bout. In the second quarter we have #5 Peyton Moore and Cael Keck. Moore defeated Keck in a close bout earlier this season. This is a big match for Park Hill in the team race, but I have Moore holding serve and advancing to the semis here. I see Moore advancing to the state finals with a close win over Haag.

In our third quarter we have #2 King and #4 Barr. Barr took an upset loss in the district semis and King has been very solid all season. I favor King here. In our finals quarter we have #1 Hilton and Bowers. Hilton has been extremely impressive his entire freshman campaign (3rd at Stampede, Champ at Winnatonka) and I have him winning decisively to advance to the semis. We get a classic #1 vs. #2 semifinal here. It should be a really great match, but I have Hilton winning and advancing to the finals.

In the state finals I have Hilton defeating Moore and winning his first state title. I have Keck coming back and taking third and getting huge points for Park Hill on the backside.
