Paddy Gallagher and Keegan O'Toole will square off for the top spot at 160 pounds in a few weeks at Who's #1.
O'Toole, the #5 overall recruit in the 2020 Class, is making his second straight appearance at WNO. He majored Jaden Abas last year at 138 and then lost to JoJo Aragona in the final of the four man mini bracket. The Missouri commit would avenge his loss to Aragona in the seventh place match at the U.S. Open for Juniors.
A Wisconsin native, O'Toole made the Junior Trials finals, including a win over another Who's #1 wrestler Andrew Alirez in the semis. He then finished third in Fargo, with his only loss coming to graduated senior and former WNO competitor Jace Luchau.
Gallagher won his first Fargo stop sign last month, teching his way through save for his quarterfinals match. A shortened sophomore season ended undefeated with his first Ohio big school state title, after finishing third last year for St. Ed's.
With O'Toole coming up in weight and based on their Fargo finishes, it will be Gallagher defending his #1 ranking. As the higher ranked man, he chose for the match to be in freestyle.
