The Knoxville Wrestling Squad will get its season underway Thursday night with a conference dual against Grinnell. A reminder that anyone going to the match, it has been moved to the middle school and there will be a recognition of former Knoxville wrestlers and coaches before the varsity matches. Also, the youth wrestlers will also be recognized during the evening. The Panthers are set to get their season started under new coach Ron Peterson. Peterson has a stellar coaching career that includes two traditional State Titles at Clarksville and Cedar Rapids Prairie, and coached at the college level at Simpson.
