(Guthrie Center) A majority of the Guthrie Center Tiger wrestling squad will be in action this Saturday at the district tournament in Corning. That list includes Troy Schwartz (113, 37-15), Lane Rumelhart (120, 35-14), Tucker Patrick (126, 26-7), Kyle Chalfant (132, 28-15), Gavin Laughery (152, 25-6), Austin Laabs (170, 41-5), Cale Crowder (195, 33-12) Cody Cain (220, 36-10), and Dillon Suhr (285, 45-2).
Coach Shawn Danker says he was happy with the amount of wrestlers that survived sectionals and knows they can still wrestle better. Most of the Tigers advanced as a sectional runner-up. Cain and Suhr were the two sectional champions from Nodaway Valley last Saturday.
A couple of potential championship matches to keep an eye on are at 170 and 285. Austin Laabs is ranked 10th and if he advances past 50-9 Payton Housman of Riverside in the semi-finals, Laabs would likely see a rematch with #6 40-1 Bryson Kinyon of East Union. Dillon Suhr is ranked 4th at 45-2. He has a possible championship matchup with 7th ranked and 44-1 David Howell of East Mills.
