There are several familiar faces due back on the mats for the Central wrestling team this winter, and not just the ones wearing the singlets. Coach Eric Van Kley and the rest of his staff have returned for the 2014-15 season. Van Kley says it should be a benefit for his grapplers to be under the direction of the same staff that they have in years past. The Central wrestling coach also is excited for the added competitiveness they will have at various weight classes that they haven’t had in previous seasons. Van Kley will be taking some of his wrestlers to Galesburg, Illinois for the Knox Invitational to open up their season on November 8, while the rest will head to Ames and the Harold Nichols Open to compete against other wrestlers from Division III and all the way up to Division I.
