Every December, an insane amount of talent gets packed into cozy confines of the Walsh Jesuit Dome in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. The quarterfinals are perhaps the most special round of all, as four mats feature future college stars simultaneously. It is perhaps the most fun you can have at a high school tournament.

138: #1 Beau Bartlett, Wyoming Seminary vs Jake Niffenegger, La Salle

Can anyone stop all-everything Penn State prospect Beau Bartlett?


138: #8 Wyatt Henson, Waynesburg Central vs #7 Kenny Herrmann, Bethlehem Catholic

An evenly matched bout between two blue-chip recruits. Henson is going to Iowa and Herrmann just committed to Harvard this morning. Also a Super 32 rematch won by Herrmann in ultimate tie-breakers.

152: Vinny Zerban, Christian Brothers vs #8 Brayden Roberts, Parkersburg South
