As a way to recognize his student-athletes achievements on the mat, West Central Valley head wrestling coach Ben Strandberg started incorporating a Wrestler of the Week feature. Strandberg shared with the Raccoon Valley Radio Network on Monday’s Wahl McAtee Tire and Service Center Guthrie County PM Sports Page that two seniors are starting the recognition piece as co-wrestlers of the week. “Cole Sackett and Carson Wadle are our Co-Wrestlers of the Week,” Strandberg said, “(They’re acknowledged) for finishing out the week 5-1. A couple of pins for each one of those guys and they both competed really well.”
After the interview, Strandberg posted about Wadle and Sackett’s honor on their social media sites with a picture and a list of their accomplishments for the week. Wadle earned two more wins during Tuesday’s West Central Activities Conference triangular against Panorama and Van Meter, while Sackett finished the evening 1-1. With the ACT Testing taking place Saturday, the Wildcat varsity wrestling squad will take a condensed team to the Lenox Invitational over the weekend.
