By Jamie Vaske-Associate Director Of Sports:
The West Delaware wrestling team will begin its season tonight as they host Waverly Shell-Rock inside Seedorff Gymnasium. The Hawks were 10-14 in dual meets last year but return over 160 varsity wins and a senior state qualifier in Coy Roussell. Head coach Jeff Voss who is in his 21st season at the helm for the Hawks talks about the match-up with the Go-Hawks who won the season opener last season 51-23.
With the football team advancing to the semifinals some of the upper classmen took some time off before starting practice but Coach Voss says they have been great leaders since returning to the wrestling room.
West Delaware will start three Freshmen in tonight’s dual and coach Voss comments it will take some time for them to get use to varsity action.
All the hold by hold coverage is live tonight on KMCH and KMCH.com with Jamie Vaske and Roger Reed around 7:30 pm.
Other area wrestling for tonight includes:
Central City, Midland, and East Buchanan @ Maquoketa Valley
North Linn and Lisbon @ Alburnett
Oelwein @ Ed-Co
Starmont @ MFL MarMac.
Benton Community and South Tama @ Western Dubuque
