Look for big things in Kenner

Bossier Parish is full of powerful wrestling programs who battle each other throughout the season.

As far as the head-to-head matchups between Parkway and Airline or Bossier and Haughton or Benton and Bossier, etc., etc., coaches like to think those improve their chances at high-profile meets.

We'll find out in less than 24 hours how true that holds at the state meet.

The area has a bevy of seeded wrestlers including a pair of No. 1 seeds (Airline's Matt Rabinowitz and Parkway's Matt Vetkoetter). Many of them have gone head up with some of the wrestlers in their brackets.

Check out the Division II 171-pound bracket. Benton's Delanie Hall is the No. 4 seed, Northwood's William Copes is seeded fifth and Haughton's Daniel Doran is the No. 6 seed.

That's half of the seeds in the bracket who hail from the Caddo-Bossier area and another example of how good the wrestling is here.
