HS Wrestling: West Delaware Takes Down Marion, CP-U

The West Delaware wrestling team started the new year off with a pair of WaMaC dual wins last night, defeating Marion 77-0 and Center Point-Urbana 75-6, raising their record to 9-3 overall and 5-0 in the conference. Against Marion the Hawks won all of the 12 matches wrestled by bonus points as they had six falls, five technical falls, and one major decision. In the final dual the Hawks added 10 more pins and between the two opponents they scored 72 takedowns and allowed only one. Head coach Jeff Voss said being more aggressive on their feet is one of the things they worked on during the Christmas break, and he was happy to see that work translate into competition:

Tomorrow the Hawks along with Independence and North Linn will compete in the always tough Benton Community Invitational which will feature six ranked teams in all three classes along with 63 ranked individuals, and Voss says in some of the weight classes the kids will face someone good in the first round of the day:

Coverage of the Benton Community Invitational gets underway around 10:00 am on our website and on the KMCH Sports 2 App, and will go live on Mix 94.7 KMCH starting at 12:30 pm with Roger Reed and Jamie Vaske.
