Eddyville Blakesburg Fremont advances wrestlers in class 1A.
Des Moines, Iowa – The Rockets of E-B-F continue their run in the state tournament in Des Moines on Friday with 4 of 7 wrestlers still alive in the championship bracket. Jaren Glosser, second ranked Blake Marolf, Jason Crosby, and Tucker Black all advance to today’s quarterfinal round at the State tournament at Wells Fargo Arena. Meanwhile, E-B-F’s Cody Brown, Dillon Pigsley and Chance Wursta were eliminated after dropping their first two matches. As a team, the Rockets are in 7th place overall with just 16 points separating them from #1 Alburnett. Rocket wrestlers advancing will wrestle at this morning and you can hear all the coverage on 96.7fm or kiicradio.com. Here are the results from other class 1a area schools.
On Wednesday at team duals, E-B-F finished second to Alburnett after coach Brett Little decided to pull his varsity wrestlers and replace them with JV grapplers in the finals match late Wednesday night. Little told KIIC before the match “I’m going to put my 7 individual wrestlers in the best position to win championships which start tomorrow – so we may not put them in, but I’m going to see what Alburnett does.” Alburnett wrestled all Varsity wrestlers in the team duals in an effort to take the outright crown for Class 1a. Little told KIIC after the meet “I’ve got some parents and fans not happy that we put in some JV and forfeited some matches, but the State of Iowa Athletic Association has put me in this situation by moving the team duals to the day before Individual rounds. It’s a bit unfair for these guys to come out and wrestle 3 times on Wednesday, risk injury, and then turn around and put it all out on the mat Thursday when Individual competition starts”. Team duals used to be held the week after Individual bouts; however last year the state made a change to the schedule.
