They're starting to get the mats cleaned off for the opening matches. We're about 15 minutes away from the first action of the day. The first area wrestler will be Briar Cochran of Moravia at 106 lbs in 1A. He looked good yesterday and some are saying he has a real chance of wrestling deep into the tournament.
Seven area wrestlers are left in 1A. Seven more will wrestle in 3A. Quite a change from yesterday morning when there were 19 in 1A alone.
Excuse me, eight left in 1A. That's why you go back through the records before the matches start.
One of the wrestlers warming up is wearing a gas mask. It doesn't smell that bad in here. But it is one way to keep to yourself so you can stay focused.
They have called the refs to their assigned mats. Not long now.
