Another Washington wrestling season is upon us as the Demons take it to the mat for the first time tonight traveling to Benton Community High School.

The Demons start their journey back to the state dual meet, as last year they finished fourth in class 2A. They graduated three state place winners from a year ago but bring back plenty of experience with five seniors including Mitchell Huisenga, Collin Murphy, Tanner Murphy, Sam Donnolly, and Kiowa Keith. Tristin Westphal-Edwards returns for his junior campaign, as he placed seventh at the state meet in the 160-pound weight class. Other wrestlers with significant experience include Logan Escher, David Hora, Garrett Ikerd, Walker Ikerd, and Cade Pohren.

Other teams that will be in attendance tonight include HLV, Iowa Valley, and the host Bobcats.

The season gets started at 6 p.m. and continues into the night at Benton Community High School.
