The Knoxville Wrestling Squad will finally get to show the home fans what everyone has been talking about this season as the Panthers will host just their second meet of the season tonight in a tri-angular with Oskaloosa and Albia. Panthers Coach Ron Peterson says the Christmas break went well for the team and they worked hard over break. He adds the guys have a lot of confidence or in his words swagger…and hopes while they stay confident…they keep it in perspective. He adds the lower to middle weights are very strong and have been doing well. Peterson says the heavy weights have struggled and right now it is just finding the right guys in the right weight class. The first match tonight at Knoxville High School starts at five-30.
