Day 1: Class 6A boys Recap

CYPRESS — The quest for the 14th straight Class 6A boys title is off to a good start for Allen.

The Eagles are sitting in first place after the opening day of the UIL State Tournament held at The Berry Center with 88 ½ points.

Arlington James Martin, the No. 1-ranked team heading into state, has 86 points. 

The two teams have been the top two teams in the poll all season and it could be easy to make the connection that the state championship would come down to these two.

Last month, Martin beat Allen in the Texas High School Wrestling Coaches Association’s State Dual Tournament.

“It is really important; everyone is working to score as many points as they can and win as many as they can and get as far as they can in their bracket,” said Allen semifinalist Ryan Nichols. “It’s been our title for 13 years and now we want to make it 14.”

While not the same format, Martin and Allen are way ahead of the field. The Woodlands College Park is in third with 57, while Katy is 10 points back of them.

The Eagles dominated last year with 239 points – more than Martin and Klein had combined (225) in second and third place.

This year is shaping up to be more competitive. 

Allen has 11 still alive and Nichols is one of five in the semifinals….
