Missouri Girls State Wrestling Preview
By: Sean Mael
Overall Thoughts: In the team race I have Lebanon winning, followed somewhat distantly by Lafayette, then Holt taking third. The fourth spot on the team podium is rather up for grabs. Harrisonville will likely grab it by a hair over St. Charles, Staley and Nixa. I hope everyone likes this preview.
No disrespect is intended for any athlete and as always, I hope everyone proves me wrong. All rankings are utilized courtesy of Flowrestling or Missouriwrestling.com. Thanks for reading
Notable First Round Matches (Team Race or Ranked vs. Ranked):
#4 Jasmine Alcantara, Raytown South vs. #7 Zoe Arrindell, Brentwood #8 Katherine Bowen, Mexico vs. Kaylee Harker, Lee’s Summit West (Returning state runner-up at 103)
Notable Potential Quarters:
#3 Audrey Scherer, Lindbergh vs. #4 Alcantara or #7 Arrindell #5 Jacklyn Fast, North Kansas City vs. #8 Bowen or Harker #2 Alyssa King, St. Charles vs. #6 Lilly McCollum, Eureka Thoughts: #1 Ashlyn Eli of Nixa is a hammer. She is 39-0 on the season and has not had a match last into the third period. She is a returning state champion as she pinned her way through the tournament at 103 last season as a sophomore and was third at 103 as a freshman. UR Kaylee Harker was a state runner-up to Eli at 103 last season as a junior. #7 Zoe Arrindell placed sixth at 103 last season as a junior.
