The Western Dubuque wrestling team is looking to get back into the state duals for the first time since 2009 tonight as they travel to Waverly for a class 3A regional dual. The 8th ranked Bobcats will face 19th ranked Iowa City West in the semifinal with the winner to face 10th ranked Waverly-Shell Rock which is the team that defeated the Bobcats in the first round back in 2009 when the duals were held at the US Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids. Western Dubuque head coach Paul Cleary says he enjoys the time off between the WaMaC tournament and the regional dual:
The Bobcats have not seen Iowa City West this season but Cleary knows they are a very well coached team and will be ready for tonight’s dual:
Wrestling gets underway at 6:00 pm and can be heard live on 94.7 KMCH and KMCH.com with Roger Reed and Jamie Vaske.
