Nevada Middle School Wrestling had a meet on Tuesday, November 14. They wrestled hard at North Polk against the five other teams that attended, and they won more matches than they lost.
A few wrestlers really stood out. Those wrestlers were Drew Robinson, Chad Knop, and Caleb Kooiker, although many more wrestled well at the meet. A key part of the night was the new eighth graders trying out wrestling for the first time that really showed their abilities during their matches.
Some big things that the middle school wrestlers have to work on would be escaping when on the bottom and being aggressive when it comes to take downs to jump ahead early on the scoreboard.
Look out for the Cubs as they look to dominate their next couple of meets at Boone and Bondurant.
