The Mid-Prairie Golden Hawk wrestling team steps back to the mat for their season opener Tuesday night.
Mid-Prairie travels to Wapello for a triangular with the Arrows and the Rockets of Eddyville-Blakesburg. The Golden Hawks are coming off of consecutive seasons in which they have set the school record for dual wins. In 2014-15 the Mid-Prairie wrestling team finished with an overall record of 12-10. Within the great team season the Golden Hawks qualified four wrestlers for districts last year with Duncan McCain at 112lbs, Visouth Peterschmidt at 170lbs, Cameron Tolander at 182lbs, and Levi Duwa at 195lbs all advancing through sectionals. McCain, Tolander and Duwa all qualified for last year’s state tournament. McCain and Duwa finished on the podium a season ago, taking sixth and eighth place respectively. Action begins at 6PM Tuesday night in Wapello.
