Meet the five West High wrestlers headed for the state tournament.
The Trojan wrestling team will send five wrestlers onto the Iowa High School State Wrestling Championships at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines from Feb. 16-18. Alex Aguirre '17, Nelson Brands '18, and Carter Rohweder '17 won the District tournament and Hans vonRabenau '18 and Guy Snow '18 placed second.
This Wednesday through Friday, West High wrestlers will take the mat and attempt to claim a state title for themselves. The West Side Story asked each of the five state-bound wrestlers questions on how they’re preparing for state, what they expect out of it and how their season went for them overall.
