North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– Mark Reiland’s 2013-2014 West High varsity wrestling team hasn’t changed much from last year’s squad, which went 21-8, 13-1 in MVC competition. Reiland, in his 15th season with the Trojans, only lost four seniors to graduation: Kegan Wakefield at 138 pounds, Blake Bohner at 182, Mickey Pelfrey at 195 and Colin Foerstner at 285.
The Trojans return 15 to the line-up with seven veteran seniors: Chris Walters (132 pounds, 53-8 record), Micah Kelsay (220, 45-9), Tyler Hebl (152, 29-21), Jasmine Bailey (120, 23-24), Jackson Voight (170, 27-26), Tristen Bowers (138, 17-14) and Aydan Wynos (285, 5-3). Juniors Jakeb Bakken (126, 27-28), John Milani (160, 27-20) and Mitch Yoerger (195, 18-29) are back as well as sophomores Donovan Doyle (182, 25-24), Connor Gast (106, 6-5), Sage Wisner (126, 5-4), Mason Koch (170, 5-7) and Nate Kelsay (145, 3-7).
Reiland identified freshmen Carter Rohweder (120 pounds) and Alex Aguirre (106), sophomore Aaron Stumpf (106), junior Tanner Rohweder (113) and senior Paul Pelfrey (285) as top prospects this season.
The Trojans will open the season on the road Thursday, Dec. 5, at Waterloo East in a double dual with East and Cedar Rapids Jefferson. The team hosts the first of three home events on Thursday, Dec. 12, when Dubuque Hempstead and Cedar Rapids Xavier invade the West High gym. Varsity and junior varsity will be in action starting at 5:30 p.m.
