A Look at Iowa State WC

Even if you asked the most knowledgeable wrestling fans, how many collegiate teams there are in Iowa, most would tell you twenty-five. The five NJCAA programs, the seven NAIA programs, the nine NCAA Division III programs, the one NCAA Division II program and the three NCAA Division I programs. Truth is there are actually 27 collegiate wrestling programs in the state of Iowa. Both the University of Iowa and Iowa State University have club teams that participate in the National Collegiate Wrestling Association (NCWA). Takedown recently got together with Chase Reising of the Iowa State wrestling club to find out more about the team.
