(Audubon) The Audubon Wheelers return seven district qualifiers from last season and have 20 wrestlers out this year. Coach Blane Kerkhoff looks for Underwood and Tri-Center to be among the toughest competition in the Western Iowa Conference.
This week marks the first competition of the year for Audubon as the Wheelers will wrestle Carroll and Kuemper Catholic on Tuesday and then Atlantic and Griswold on Thursday night in Griswold. The Wheelers split their matches with Griswold a season ago.
Coach Kerkhoff says the team has been working on alot of technique in the first couple of weeks of practice. He also says the team is showing alot of hard work and good spirit so far.
