4A Wrestling  11/1/2017 5:35:33 PM score: 0    hide

Since the boards have been a little dead, I thought I’d try to spark some talk in the 4A ranks. What teams look strong this year? Any dark-horse teams that may sneak in to the team chase? Wrestlers to watch? Anything else worth talking about? Let’s hear it!

Caldwell will be strong again followed by Lakeland. Minico lost too many good wrestlers to repeat.

I agree Caldwell should be the 4A favorite. I think Minico will take a step back, but they won’t fall a ton. I think minico and Lakeland will be there battling for 2nd and 3rd. I think mountain home drops out of the top four...

Caldwell is definitely the favorite. It’ll be interesting to see what the rest of the field works out like. I agree with Lakeland and minico battling for that runner-up trophy. Haven’t really done any research but based on last season, possibly Blackfoot or Poky creeping into the top 4?

Minico returns 3-3rds 2-4ths a 5th and a 6th place finisher at state graduating a 2nd and 3 state champions. They have a very strong incoming freshman class with several potentially competing for a state championship. That is a very deep team. My quess is they will repeat as state champs.

I do not think there will be anybody competing team wise from the 5th or 6th district. Blackfoot has some quality kids and a couple very solid classes but the coaching has failed them since Barlow left years ago. If there was going to be a team it would be Pocatello. They have a pretty solid feeder program starting to take shape. Skyline could have a few kids but I don't think they have enough to compete as a team yet.

Caldwell returns a 2nd two thirds and two 5ths. I think the momentum of last years finish and a great freshman class propels them to be the odds on favorite to take state.

Lakeland returns the two Edeblute freshman state champions along with another soph I believe who took state and a 3rd place finisher. With 4 state champions they lost by 60 points to Minico to finish 3rd last year. Very impressive dominant kids but not enough depth likely to compete with a team with three 3rds two fourths and a couple 5ths. Likely will finish ahead of Caldwell but they need 7 or 8 state placers to do it. Perhaps they have that incoming a wow they are great in the younger classes.

Idaho Sports under State results have last years brackets and the results for anyone wishing to get a read on this years potential matchups.

axes, Lakeland will be returning 4 state champions, and a third. The brothers are going to be senior, junior, and a sopohomore this year. Also are we going to forget about Larry Johnson? Three time state champ going for four this year? In my opinion this team is the favorite to win it. If not then it will be very close.
