It's hard to believe, but we are publishing The Predicament's last issue of the 2018-2019 Season. This issue, which includes the Academic Teams, is probably the most popular one of the year. There are so many great kids involved in Iowa wrestling! It's a privilege to be able to recognize as many as possible regarding scholarly achievements along with wrestling accomplishments. It was nice to see so many state champs with academic excellence on the teams.
Heading into the summer, we are looking forward to the freestyle and greco season. There were good numbers at the USA State Freestyle and Greco Tournaments. I hope that this translates to good numbers going to Fargo this summer for Cadet and Junior Nationals. This is something that I enjoy! Fargo is a lot of work, but at the same time a little relaxing for me.
Next year, The Predicament will be entering its 50th year of covering amateur wrestling in Iowa. It the last few years, various individuals and I have had the privilege of keeping The Predicament's flame burning brightly. We hope that we have been found up to the task.
Look for future stories highlighting some of the notable past wrestling coverage and individuals, in addition to the usual current content. This is something to look forward to and will be a lot of fun to publish.
Enjoy a break, get some rest and get rejuvinated….refill the gas tanks for the next season.!
Let's Keep Wrestling on the move
