This weekend will be the first step for the women in the state to capture a state title in the women’s division in the inaugural season. Unlike the men’s division there is only currently one class that is split into four different districts. The top 3 wrestlers in the district will move on to the state tournament that will be held during the regular state tournament.
At the 103-pound weight class there are no ranked wrestlers from district 2. This will leave the door open for three wrestlers to break into the state tournament and vie for a state title.
The 110-pound class is headlined by the top ranked wrestler in the state, junior Autumn Flanigan of Troy, she will have to earn her trip to state over two honorable mention wrestlers in junior Camryn Head of St. Charles and sophomore Lydia Nelson of Kirksville.
There are two ranked wrestlers at the 116-pound weight class. The #5 ranked senior Kyra Perry of McCluer North will have to edge out the #6 ranked junior in Caitlyn Thorne of St. Charles in order to take the district title.
