Pella and Pleasantville head to Colfax-Mingo tonight to open their 2017-2018 wrestling season.
The Little Dutch have no seniors on this years’ team, and bring a very inexperienced lineup into coach Jon Mendoza’s first season.
“We’re just looking right now at getting experience”, Mendoza said. “Getting those wrestlers on the mat for the first time in varsity matches, seeing what it’s like when you have that many people in the stands cheering for you and getting used to that pressure and treating every match like it’s not a special match. Every match is just another match.”
Iowa Valley is the other team that will be at tonight’s quad. Action starts at 6:00 tonight at Colfax-Mingo High School.
