Between events cancelled due to the weather and several wrestlers having the weekend off, it was a slow weekend of competition for our incoming Iowa Wrestling recruits. Abe Assad won by a first period fall in a dual meet on Saturday against Geneva and Ryan Sokol won by a tech fall in a dual meet against PEM on Saturday.
Jesse Ybarra dropped his first match of the season with a 6-4 setback to Diego Guerrero of Walden Grove in the finals of the Flowing Wells Invitational. Guerro is a three-time Arizona state champion.
Zach Glazier and Cobe Siebrecht both had their scheduled events cancelled. Patrick Kennedy and Colby Schriever did not have anything scheduled this weekend.
Several of our recruits will be competing in their conference tournament next weekend and then we are into the tournament season.
