Wrestlers face busy week

The CFHS wrestling team started its new season yesterday at the MVC Double Dual at home at 5 p.m., and it faces an even bigger contest tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. at the Keith Young Invitational. This tournament is one of the biggest in the state, and features many of Iowa’s top high school wrestling programs.

Sophomore varsity 126 pound wrestler Jacob Watters is feeling confident about the upcoming season.

“Well, I’m excited,” Watters said. “ I think we have a great team, and hopefully we’ll be able to surprise some people this year.”

Watters possesses an enthusiasm about the season that assistant coach Ethan Wiechmann shares.

“We are excited to get the season’s competition started,” Wiechmann said.

When it comes to the meets later this week, Watters wants to make sure and please the fans and the team itself.

“Hopefully, we’ll be able to put on a good show for our home fans and be able to come out on top,” Watters said.

The Tigers want to send at least five wrestlers to the state competition and have no wrestler miss competition due to their grades.

Wiechmann is looking forward to another great season for the Tigers.

“As a team, we have had the best start to a season in years,” Wiechmann said. “The wrestlers are working very hard together and pushing each other to be better every day.”

CFHS faces a tough district, including the likes of Cedar Rapids Kennedy and Waterloo West. The toughest competition in their division perhaps is Linn Mar.
