Todd Irwin’s D6 2A picks

106 POUNDS: Finalists: Baylor Shunk, Penns Valley vs. Amonn Ohl, Saint Joseph’s. Champion: Ohl. Comment: They haven’t wrestled each other, but I’ve seen both this season, and I’m more impressed with Ohl.

113 POUNDS: Finalists: Josh Boozel, Mount Union vs. Brock McMillen, Glendale. Champion: Boozel. Comment: This one could be a great match. McMillen’s only loss came to Boozel, 3-2, when the Viking freshman moved up a weight.

120 POUNDS: Finalists: Zach Witmer, Saint Joseph’s vs. Derrick Christie, Westmont Hilltop. Champion: Witmer. Comment: If it’s the district tournament, then Moshannon Valley’s Joe Ball is a threat to pull off an upset on Christie’s side.

126 POUNDS: Finalists: Alex Richner, Moshannon Valley vs. Conner Polacek, Westmont Hilltop. Champion: Richner. Comment: Portage’s Logan Shaffer, Glendale’s Tristan Rutter and Tyrone’s Jamal Hicks are capable finalists on Polacek’s side.

132 POUNDS: Finalists: Jacob Powers, Saint Joseph’s vs. Izac Benson, Huntingdon. Champion: Powers. Comment: In a battle of returning district champions, I wouldn’t be surprised if the surging Benson wins.

138 POUNDS: Finalists: Caleb Dowling, Saint Joseph’s vs. Charlie Beatty, Marion Center. Champion: Dowling. Comment: Central’s Braeden Swab will take a shot at stopping Beatty’s finals march in the semifinals.

145 POUNDS: Finalists: Alex Caldwell, Ligonier Valley vs. Carnell Andrews, Bishop McCort. Champion: Andrews. Comment: I don’t know how healthy Andrews is. If he’s not, Westmont’s Clayton Dorian could knock him off. Central’s Logan Marko is a threat on Caldwell’s side.

152 POUNDS: Finalists: Connor Law, Forest Hills vs. Andrew Todaro, Mount Union. Champion: Law. Comment: How many Laws are there? Glendale’s Isaac Krause, Cambria Heights’ Seth Link and Saint Joseph’s Keegan Rothrock are threats on Todaro’s side.

160 POUNDS: Finalists: Derek Yingling, West Branch vs. Jon Dale, Moshannon Valley. Champion: Yingling. Comment: These two wrestled about a dozen times last year. Penn Cambria’s Jarred Stoy could stop Yingling’s march.

170 POUNDS: Finalists: Robbie Patrick, Ligonier Valley vs. Derek Brown, Penn Cambria. Champion: Patrick. Comment: This is a possible Southwest Regional finals matchup also. Patrick, though, wins his fourth district title.

182 POUNDS: Finalists: Kyle Myers, West Branch vs. Carmen Gett, Marion Center. Champion: Myers. Comment: Huntingdon’s Ryder Kocik will be looking to hip toss his way to the finals on Myers’ side.

195 POUNDS: Finalists: Alex Mykut, Huntingdon vs. Levi Hockenberry, Mount Union. Champion: Mykut. Comment: Mykut beat Hockenberry via tiebreaker earlier this season. If Alex wins again, Jon Mykut will be one proud dad.

220 POUNDS: Finalists: Anthony Walters, Bishop McCort vs. Landon Fisher, Huntingdon. Champion: Walters. Comment: Fisher could be tested by Mount Union’s Jake Ryan in the semifinals.

285 POUNDS: Finalists: Josiah Jones, Bishop McCort vs. Nate Martin, Central Cambria. Champion: Jones. Comment: Martin will get tested right away by Cambria Heights’ returning third-placer Cody Bogus in quarterfinals.

OUTSTANDING WRESTLER: Robbie Patrick, Ligonier Valley

TEAM CHAMPION: Saint Joseph’s Catholic Academy. Comment: Huntingdon will stick with Saint Joseph’s, as will Westmont Hilltop, Forest Hills and Bishop McCort, but Saint Joe’s takes it.
