ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The Mid Prairie Middle School Wrestling team traveled to Iowa City to take on the West Liberty Comets and the hosting Regals. The team showed vast improvement from its first meet last week in posting a 24-18 record on the night. The Golden Hawks dropped only one match in defeating Regina by a score of 78-6, but fell to the Comets 99-57.

Joe Allred, Brodey Neal, Aydin Kutcher and Stanley Butterbaugh each won their first career matches on the night. Of his improvement from last year, Butterbaugh remarked, “I have more technique than last year. Physically I am taking more shots to get the takedown and 2 points”.

TJ Farrier avenged a loss by pinning an opponent who beat him last week. Farrier noted that when he reached for his opponent’s head last week, “he would raise his arm, opening up his legs” for the takedown. Farrier used this to his advantage this time around, recording a takedown and pin in the first period.

Farrier, Neal along with teammates Vinnie Bowlin, Gibson Lowenberg, Stone Peck, Ben Meader, Josh Wallington and Gannon Callahan each went undefeated on the night.

The Golden Hawks recorded 5 more takedowns than their opponents did, a stark contrast to the previous meet where they faced a 15 takedown deficit. “I think we got the first meet jitters out of the way and were able to be aggressive, more in our element and dictate the action of many of our matches. That aggressive mindset translated into pins in matches that may otherwise have been close” Coach Dylan Walther said of the meet.
