Demon wrestlers dominant

Matt Bryant, The JOURNAL


The Washington wrestling team opened the season Tuesday night with three team dual victories at the Iowa Valley quadrangular. Seven of the 14 Demons went undefeated on the night on the way to wins of 66-12 over Iowa Valley, 56-15 over Benton Community and 69-9 over HLV.

?We wrestled pretty well last night,? said Washington Head Coach Brent Van Weelden, ?I like the way we went out and were aggressive in most of the matches.?

The Washington team outscored the three opponents 191 ? 36 on the night.

?The kids wrestled extremely hard, several of them went 3-0,? said Van Weelden.

Dillan Sanders (132), Garrett Ikerd (138), David Hora (152) and Dylan Farmer (160) all recorded falls in two of their three matches. Tristin Westphal-Edwards (170) posted a fall and a technical fall for the night.

This meet marked the first three of a rigorous stretch of duals to start the season. Thursday the Demons travel to Mediapolis for a Triangular and then Friday to Cascade for a dual meet tournament.

?The one obvious thing that we need to work on is our conditioning. We just need to focus on little things to improve,? concluded Van Weelden.
