National wrestling powerhouse Iowa Central visits Iowa Lakes Wednesday (Dec. 4) for what looks to be a great night of matchups between the two programs.
Iowa Central is coming off a top five national finish last season having claimed five National Team Titles under Head Coach Luke Moffitt who is a former Iowa wrestling state champion – and Estherville High School graduate.
Both teams look to be heavily occupied by freshman and each team will have talented wrestlers from all over the country which will make for some great individual match ups.
“We are excited to bring in Iowa Central for our first home dual of the season,” said Head Wrestling Coach Cody Alesch. “Coach Moffitt has made that program one of the top NJCAA wrestling schools in the country and his teams are always ready to go to battle.”
“That is what makes a night like this even more exciting. There is going to be good hard nose wrestling from both teams and we will have to be at our best every match if we want to come out with a team win,’’ said Alesch.
The dual starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Gymnasium at the Estherville campus of Iowa Lakes.

"We had some key matches where our guys let their opponent jump on them early and we had to try and battle back through out the match. That was key for IA Western in this dual and you can not let a quality team like that take early advantages. I thought we battled hard but at the end of the night we came up short on some keys opportunities and matches. We travel to Augsburg for their open this weekend before returning to our first home dual of the season Dec. 4th against Iowa Central," Coach Alesch.
