I’m sure there will be some changes after the dual tournament and before the upcoming individual tournament on Feb. 11 at Watford City.  Also, many of the wrestlers either moved up a weight class or down for the dual tourney.  The weight class that they are at in the individual tourney will be their weight class for the state tourney, providing they finish in the top four of the individual tourney.
