Learning from last season

IOWA CITY– Mark Reiland, West High’s head varsity coach, doesn’t sugar coat his words. Ever.
Looking at the 2017-18 wrestling season, Reiland, in his 19th year at West High, said his team has, “Lots of returning kids with varsity experience, but not all of the experience was positive.”
