One word that has been used around the Knoxville Wrestling squad this season is the word “Legendary.” So far the Panthers have started the upward climb to the upper half of the Little Hawkeye Conference. Knoxville is currently 8-7 on the season beating schools that are much larger than Knoxville. Coach Eric Whitcome says the effort has been outstanding on the mats not only matches but in practices as well, and he says that make the practices more fun. Whitcome says his team can win up to 15 matches this season is the guys continue to wrestle like they have and improve for the end of the season. Knoxville is 2-0 in the dual meet portion of the season in the Little Hawkeye Conference. That’s actually second place to league leader Norwalk who is 3-0 in the conference. The Panthers and Warriors will get together January 13th for the dual at Knoxville.
