With the District 2 Individual Championships just days away, wrestlers and fans got their first look at this weekend’s Class 3A and Class 2A brackets on Wednesday.
The district finalized all 28 weight classes’ preliminary pairings. Matchups can still be shuffled around in the result of scratches, but this is still a solid look at what each weight has to offer when the tournament gets underway Friday and Saturday at the Kingston Armory.
In Class 3A, Tunkhannock and Scranton lead the way with three top seeds. Coughlin — the Wyoming Valley Conference tournament champion in January — earned two top seeds, as did Valley West. The rest of the top seeds went to Dallas, Delaware Valley, Hazleton Area and Wallenpaupack. Overall, the WVC owns nine of the top seeds in the field, while the Lackawanna League has five.
In Class 2A, top WVC Division 2 team Lake-Lehman (5-0) collected three top seeds, the same as Wyoming Area. Western Wayne and Scranton Prep earned two top seeds, while the remaining top spots went to Berwick, Blue Ridge, Hanover Area and Lackawanna Trail. Overall, the WVC also enters the weekend with an 8-to-6 edge over the LL in top seeds for this field, too.
Check out all the preliminary brackets below, all of which are subject to change. Follow @CVEricShultz on Twitter for more updates throughout the tournament.
