The Bluejays hold great strength in the lower weights, qualifying all of their .finalists in the first nine classes. •— Both of the top two teams seems ratter secure in the top echeleon. It would take an unexpected and drastic turn of events to affect the two high positions. But St. Francis, Colby, and Atwood are expected to have a tight battle for the third place finish.

St. Francis, which topped Norton rather handily hi dual competition for the NWKL title, had been favored in the met, but appears to be virtually out of the title chase. Norton finished third in the district meet at Goodlaml last year, behind Colby and St. Francis. Garden City was seventh in that event.

He takes on Liberal's J. R. Warren whom he previously pinned, hi the loser's bracket. Winner there meets Colby's Craig Hills and to determine who will enter the third place bout. O*din« similarly stayed close to the tough Storcr, who is likewise in the finals. He meets Eric Prcicst of Kinsley, who beat him twice previously, for a chance at third place. Lee tackles Steve Perry of Hugoton in the loser's bracket at 112. A victory would send, him against Kinsley's Ken Coover for one of the consolation spots. His pin was his first of the year. Gunning for his second state championship, Dunham polished off three foes Friday. He crossed a major obstacle in edging Rule. In that encounter he recorded a takedown and two reversals while psrmitting a re versal and escape.' The former state 95-pound titlist faces St. Francis' Larry Carroll tonight. Trcsner is just, getting back into action after a nerve injury that sidelined him for most of the season. He is paired with Oakley's David Wieland, whom he defeated earlier with the winner slated to meet Lyle Cook of St. Francis in the consolation semi-finals. Scott had previously decision- ed Washburn, but could not turn the trick again Friday night. He was victim of a second period escape and takedown and could tally only a final second escape. He is pushed back to the loser's bracket semis with a chance for third still in the works. Stoppell scored the fastest pin of the day against Sloan and started out the same way against Kaus with a takedown and predicament. But he tired and fell into a reversal and predicament. Th«n he dropped his second referee's decision of the year in the overtime. At 145, Brooks .moved to two easy wins before he was topped by the unbeaten Fischer. He reverts back to the consolation semi-finals and a try for third. John Lightner's meeting with Metzler was their third. He defeated the Eagle just two weeks ago in the Garden Invitational, but could not do it again. Light- . ncr got the takedown, but Metzler tallied two reverses. T«rroll's thro* decisions were rather one-sided and he was near a pin in two of them. Boasting a season mark of 14-1, he meets Beims of Atwood in the finals. David Lightner was the only wrestler all day to score three straight pins, and he cut the elapsed time in successive order. A defending meet champion, Lightner is 14-0-1 on the season and has posted ten falls. He U matched with surprising Roger Simmons of Hugoton in the title bout. Gross' performance was similarly unexpected. He eliminated the defending chump Evins and was credited with a near fall against the St. Francis behemoth. He wrestles Danny Lankas of Atwood for the title. The latter dealt Kinsley's Lon Austin his first defeat of the year. J
