The Indianola boys and girls wrestling and basketball teams are all competing today, one of the last days of competitions before the holiday break for all the teams.

The Indians boys wrestling team will head to one of the most competitive tournaments in the entire state at Young Arena in Waterloo, joined by over 30 schools in The Battle of Waterloo. The boys hit the mats today at 9am.

The Indians girls travel to Chariton for a nine-team meet, their first action since last Thursday. The Indians inaugural season has gone well to start, and the Indians will match up with Warren County rival Carlisle among other area schools starting at 3pm.

The basketball teams welcome Warren County rival Norwalk to the high school for a Little Hawkeye Conference doubleheader. The Indians girls are looking to rebound after a tough non-conference game against Ankeny on Monday, but are 2-0 to start the conference season with wins over Newton and Oskaloosa. Indians head coach Jeff Janssen said they have to take the positives from their loss against Ankeny and try and grow from the experience and apply it to the rest of the season.

The Norwalk girls are 1-1 in the conference with a victory over Pella Christian and a loss to Pella, and are also looking to rebound after a tough non-conference battle with Lewis Central earlier this week.

The Norwalk boys are on a three-game winning streak and are firing on all cylinders heading into tonight’s matchup especially on the defensive end, giving up only 40 points in each of their last two games. The Indianola boys are 4-0 to start the season, and haven’t scored less than 62 points in a game, and despite a poor shooting night on Monday against Ankeny are still shooting 56% from the field.

The basketball games will be broadcast live on 94.3 KNIA, with Andrew Swadner and Chris Larson on the call. Pregame coverage begins at 6pm, with tip-off at 6:15.
