Here is a short list of some of the top area wrestlers in 5A to watch this weekend:

Eric Waggoner, Carl Albert, 135: Has emerged as the team leader for the Titans and enters as the top seed from the east.

Austin Goyette, Harrah, 135: Could face Waggoner in a potential finals matchup. The two are very familiar Suburban Conference rivals. Goyette is 29-4 this year.

Bryan Dutton, Guthrie, 140: The three-sport star for the Bluejays is one of the favorites to take the crown. Needed less than two minutes to earn a pin in the regional final and is 31-1 this season.

Kenneth Hartfield, Western Heights, 152: Doesn't have as many matches under his belt as some of the other competitors but hasn't been beat yet at 15-0.

Nolan Boyd, Deer Creek, 171: Already with one state championship under his belt, the junior has been dominant this season for the Antlers and enters at 40-1.
