CEDAR RAPIDS– A late December snowstorm only postponed the inevitable for the Cedar Rapids Kennedy and Waterloo West wrestlers. A double-dual meet originally scheduled for Dec. 20 was rescheduled to Thursday night, and for Iowa City West it was worth the wait. Mark Reiland’s Trojans reigned supreme defeating the Kennedy Cougars 60-22 and the Waterloo West Wahawks 68-8.
Against Kennedy Kegan Wakefield, Tyler Hebl, Donovan Doyle, Mason Koch, Mickey Pelfrey, Micah Kelsay, Colin Foerstner, Jasmine Bailey and Chris Walters all won by fall. Against the Wahawks Wakefield, Hebl, Foerstner, Bailey and Jakeb Bakken won by fall.
The Trojans wrap-up the regular season at home on Thursday, Jan. 31, with a double dual against Dubuque Senior and Cedar Rapids Washington with a 5:30 p.m. start time. On Wednesday, Feb. 6, the No. 8-ranked West High team will face No. 10 West Des Moines Dowling at home in a Class 3A Regional Dual. The winning team will advance to the State Dual Team Tournament in Des Moines. On Saturday, Feb. 9, the Trojans will travel to Mount Pleasant for a Class 3A District Meet to qualify individual wrestlers for the state tournament.
