TOP 10 CLASS C DUAL TEAMS #3 1/14/18
- David City
- North Bend
- Battle Creek
- Broken Bow
- Central City
Valentine is going to be tough to top in a dual setting as well. David City is a tough dual for anybody they wrestling with the quality of kid they could put at every weight. North Bend looks to be healthy and has more depth that I originally thought. Battle Creek, Broken Bow, and Ord also put out a lot of quality kids in a lot of weights. Aquinas has several kids that can get bonus on a lot the kids they will wrestle. Central City is getting better as the season goes along. Sutton and Arlington join the top ten as each team is just about full and has a lot of depth
