New Hawk: Rose Cassioppi - Iowa Wrestling Fan

It is now time to take a look at the incoming recruits and transfers for the Iowa Women’s Wrestling program. The Hawks will have their first year of competition this season as the first women’s wrestling program from a Power 5 Conference

First up is Rose Cassioppi of Roscoe, Illinois. The last name sounds familiar because her older brother Tony has been our Hwt for the last four years. Rose committed to the Hawks on March 20 to be a member of the Recruiting Class of 2023. 

Rose certainly has the credentials of an elite recruit. As a junior in 2022 she won a state title for Hononegah High School in Illinois and was a U20 World Team Trials Runner-Up. Last year Rose was at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs as a member of the Elite Accelerator Program. 

Cassioppi had a very good freestyle season competing at 72 KG. In April she placed third at U20 Nationals followed by placing second at the U.S. Women’s Open. 

In July Cassioppi won Bronze representing Team USA at the Grand Prix of Spain in Madrid. This was an impressive showing at an elite International open tournament with wrestlers from around the world especially considering her age.

You have to believe that Rose Cassioppi will have a real good if not a great career for the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Welcome aboard Rose Cassioppi.

It is great to be an Iowa Wrestling fan.

Go Hawks!
