Seven Mustang wrestlers took to the mat on Saturday at the junior varsity tournament in Cherryvale and each one posted a sterling finish ending the day with a 19-0 overall record.
Freshmen TJ Taylor, Adam Atwell, Trent Jones and Trenton Varney, sophomore Logan Brown, junior Casen Barker and senior Elijah Luedke waded their way through the field of competition on their way to one of the better finishes for Iola at any tournament over the past several seasons.
We must be doing something right, head coach Jason Bates said. We had two upperclassmen who have roughly four months of wrestling experience and a sophomore and four freshmen. We need all the experience we can get in order to be ready for postseason play in February.
