Slated to compete in dual meet competition one week from Friday, No. 4 Apple Valley, Minn. and No. 18 Kasson-Mantorville, Minn. both open their season on Saturday at the Dick Shiels Invitational in Faribault, Minn. The 11-team field essentially reduces to a showdown between these two squads, which between them feature 11 wrestlers ranked either first or second in their division per the preseason rankings from The Guillotine.

The best potential matchup of the tournament is a head-on battle between these two nationally ranked squads at 126 pounds where defending state champion Seth Gross (Apple Valley), who is ranked 12th nationally, could meet 2010 state champion Nate Thomas. There is a potential No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown in Class AA at 195 pounds between two-time state champion Broc Berge (Kasson-Mantorville), ranked second nationally, and Paxton Jordahl (Hutchinson).

I think Hall should move up to 195 for some competition.
