Washington, IA – After putting together one of the better weekends in recent Washington wrestling history, the Demons are back on the mat tonight when they host Fairfield at 6:30.
After squeaking out a come-from-behind nine-point decision over Davis County to win the championship in the Pekin tournament last weekend, head coach Brent Van Weeldon joined us on PM Sports Page last night and said this match against Fairfield should not be much different.

“Fairfield has traditionally been a very solid team and I believe they are again this year. They had a duel with Davis County and I believe it was a one point match. We were very close with Davis County over the weekend so I look forward to it being very competitive. I would say their (Fairfield) strengths are in the upper weights where they have a lot of kids returning and they kind of lost some of their lower weights; we’re kind of opposite of that. They’ve got some good kids and we’re going to have to step up to meet the challenge.”

We’ll have the results for you on KCII Radio with Friday’s Sports Page and online at
