Shore Conference storylines to watch:
- Southern's Jayla Hahn is a former state champion, a two-time state finalist, and a three-time top-three finisher looking to end her tremendous career with a second state championship. After winning her fourth region title, she is the No. 1 seed at 138 pounds. Standing in her way could be Jackson Memorial's Kamila Bieszczad, seeded No. 2 and the Central Region champion. The two wrestled at the Southern Jamboree in early February with Hahn winning, 5-4. Bieszczad was fourth in the state at 132 pounds last season.
- Brick's Jade Huerta is the No. 1 seed at 165 pounds and is coming off a dominant Central Region Tournament where she pinned her way to the championship. Huerta was second in the state at 165 last season. Brick's only state champion, male or female, is Dan McCullough, who won back-to-back titles in 1973 and 1974.
- Howell freshman Kylie Gudewitz was the starting 113-pounder for the boys team, which won a Central Jersey Group 5 sectional title. Now, it's her turn in the spotlight as she chases a state championship at 107 pounds. She is the No. 3 seed and owns a perfect 15-0 record. She was dominant in the Central Region Tournament en route to the championship.
