Posted at 9:46 AM, Jan 28, 2020

There was minimal change to the top of the Class B-C wrestling individual polls this week, with Conrad's Roper Mycke the lone new No. 1 in the individual weight classes. Glasgow and Circle remain the top teams in Class B and Class C, respectively.

Mycke, the new No. 1 at 126 pounds, has had an impressive season this winter. According to Trackwrestling.com, Mycke has placed in the top five at numerous invitationals this season, including a first-place finish at the Choteau Classic on Jan. 18. He also finished fourth at the Cut Bank Booster Invitational and fifth at the C.M. Russell Holiday Wrestling Classic.

Wrestling at 132 pounds to open the season, Mycke placed runner-up at the Cascade Badger Invitational, according to the Trackwrestling.com database. Mycke swapped spots with previous No. 1 Kyle Durden of Eureka.

Glasgow continues to lead the way with three individuals ranked No. 1 -- Colten Fast (132 pounds), Dylan Nieskens (182) and Cooper Larsen (205) -- while Kaden Zimmerman (152) is ranked second. Fellow Scotties Jake Kuka (103) and Mayson Phipps (285) are No. 3 in their respective weight classes.

Huntley Project, fresh off a repeat title performance at the Class B-C duals in Great Falls, boasts No. 1s in 103-pound Gavin Nedens and heavyweight Journey Grimsrud. The Red Devils defeated Townsend in the B-C duals finale, as the Bulldogs have six ranked wrestlers. Riley Richtmyer (132), Easton Held (138) and Ty Henry Steele (160) lead the way for Townsend after being ranked third in their respective weight brackets.

Circle and Eureka also have a pair of top-ranked individuals -- Krayle Stormer (113) and Cole Becker (145) for the Wildcats, and Nathan Schmidt (138) and Hank Dunn (152) for the Lions.

Columbus-Absarokee standout Tanner Cook held the top spot at 120 pounds as the favorite to win a gold medal in less than three weeks in Billings, while St. Ignatius-Charlo star Isaiah Allik remains No. 1 at 170 pounds.
