5th Annual Iowa vs Illinois All-Star Meet
The 5th Annual Iowa vs Illinois All Star Meet will be held this Sunday, April 15th at Bettendorf High School (IA) at 2pm. The year we have increased the number of matches from 14 to around 24, with all 24 matches counting in the team score. We also increased the Quad Cities drawing radius from 60 miles to 100 miles. This is to have the opportunity to draw more quality kids. The line ups are very close to being set and I will post when they are 100% complete. Right now Team Iowa has the potential of having 7 state champions and 11 state finalists and Team Illinois is looking at 6 state champions and 10 state finalists. Coach Pustelnik (East Moline) will be coaching Team Illinois and Coach Mashek (North Scott) will be coaching Team Iowa. It should be a great dual meet with a lot of quality matches. I hope the wrestling communities from both sides of the river come out on Sunday to Bettendorf High School and support this event.
