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.
Lebanon is the #2 ranked team in the state and has the most ranked wrestlers in this district with 7.
The 106-pound weight class is headlined by 2 ranked wrestlers and an honorable mention. The freshman #4 Ashlyn Eli of Nixa is the favorite but will have to get past #6 freshman Shelby Patterson of Raymore Peculiar and HM freshman Taylor Mustain of Camdenton.
At 110 pounds, the only ranked wrestler is #6 Emily Young of Lebanon. She will have to win the title to help her team secure the first district title.
