With last week’s district tournament in the rear view mirror, 16 wrestlers representing Grangeville, Prairie, Clearwater Valley and Kamiah high schools have been seeded for the upcoming all-classifications state tournament to be held Feb. 28-March 1 in Nampa at the Idaho Center.
Clearwater Valley holds the area’s greatest number, five, on the 2-1A bracket, with Prairie and Kamiah each sending four.
In senior Phillip Walters, who has gone 21-3 at 195 pounds this season, Grangeville has a top-four seed and may have the area’s best hope for a medal.
