Last night was Alumni night at Prairie. At the meet the 1997-1998 wrestling state champions team was honored. Those from the team who couldn’t attend because they were taken from us too soon were honored as well with a moment of silence.
The JV team started the hawks of with 15 wins. JV set the tone for the night and gave Varsity something to strive for as they faced the Wahawks from Waterloo West High School.
Varsity knew what they needed to do and blew the Wahawks out of the water with a team win of 72 to 3. The varsity team had an outstanding night with 7 pins and only one loss.
Jake Tedrow, a Prairie wrestler has just learned he will not be able to wrestle for the season. After speaking with Jake on the devastating news it sounds like he still will have a key role for Prairie wrestling.
“I will still be at all of the meets cheering for my team, I know it will be hard to watch and not being able to do it but it’s a sacrifice that will help me team.” Tedrow said after he was asked how the news will affect the rest of the team.
Jake shows a great amount of leadership by doing this and his team looks up to him for it.
Overall, the meet was a great home opener that got everybody excited for the 2017-2018 season! They have a tournament in Waterloo which will be another great time to show off their talents and hard work that has been worked on everyday.
