In what has become a recent tradition, No. 12 Brecksville will travel to No. 48 Claymont for a Saturday night dual meet in what will serve as the "lid-lifter" for the season of both teams. Brecksville has travelled down Interstate 77 and left Claymont with well-earned dual meet victories in the last two seasons.

The following are projected matchups for this dual meet, which starts at 7:30 p.m. ET.

113: TBD (Brecksville) vs. No. 8 Dustin Warner (Claymont)
The senior Warner placed third at state last year, and placed fifth at the Super 32 Challenge in October. Brecksville is unsure who their starter will be at this weight class.
