One Team Conquers a Conference…Again

All 10 of Wartburg College's wrestlers (forefront, in orange) lined up against their opponents Friday night at the IIAC Wrestling Tournament

Jim Nelson of the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier is a straight shooter and one of the best in covering high school and college wrestling.  He led his recap of the Iowa Conference Wrestling Championships with the “quote of the day” in my opinion:

“If it had been a dual, Wartburg College would’ve won it, too.”

Last Friday, Wartburg sent all 10 wrestlers to the championship round, won 7 out of 10 matches, and coasted to their 19th straight IIAC conference title at the Cowles Center on the campus of Simpson College.

Here are some images and pics from last week’s tournament.


A decidedly pro-Wartburg crowd.
