Aaron Butler, a standout 170-pounder, has been the Huguenots' most impressive performer this season. The senior grappler is 10-1 and is a serious threat to take home his second straight Section 1 Division 1 title. Butler won it all at 160 pounds last year.

Lilly, who has won seven of his matches by pin, finished third at 215 pounds in the 2010 Section 1 Division 1 tournament.
Edgemont — which enters with a dual meet record of 8-14 — is paced by junior 113-pounder John Aslanian. Aslanian, who has an overall record of 22-1, placed second in the NYS Division 2 tournament last season at 103 pounds. Other wrestlers to keep an eye on include Max Abramsky (120), Tyler Aslanian (99), Skylar Korek (106) and Daniel Kornberg (220).
