Iola Wrestling team had a dual last Thursday, Jan. 26, against Caney and Independence. Iola lost 9 – 66 against Independence and lost 18 – 48 against Caney. Senior wrestler Tavon Blazek, who won two out of two of his matches, says that he could have done even better in the two matches if he would have, “listened to coach [Jason Bates].”

Today, Thursday, February 2, there is a dual here at IHS. It is also Senior Night, so seniors Colton Toney and Tavon Blazek will be recognized at the dual that starts at 5:30 p.m.
