Class 3A Oak Park-River Forest Sectional
Mount Carmel vs. Sandburg, 6 p.m.
Oak Park-River Forest vs. Hinsdale Central, 6 p.m.
Advancement: Winner of the four-team sectional advances to face the winner of the Wheeling Sectional in the Class 3A quarterfinals, 9 a.m. Saturday at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington.
Local wrestlers to watch: MOUNT CARMEL -- Bryce Brill, So., 145 pounds (2nd in state); Mike Mizaur, Sr., 132 (3rd in state); David Denne, Jr., 220 (4th in state). Brendan Hall, Sr., 152 (state qualifier); Notay Jackson, Jr., 160 (state qualifier).
Analysis: Caravan first-year coach John Kading said the meet against Sandburg features a showdown of two teams whose strengths in the middle weights could decide which one advances. Sandburg placed four wrestlers at state, including Sebastian Pique (2nd at 120), and Ricky Robertson (2nd at 170). The dual winner will likely face Oak Park-River Forest for the sectional title.
