Coe has ascended to No. 1 in the National Wrestling Coaches Association NCAA Division III dual rankings. The Kohawks are the No. 1 seed at the NWCA Multi-Division National Dual Meet Championships this week in Louisville, Ky.
Iowa’s Spencer Lee attempted to give the 2021-22 wrestling season a go, but it didn’t work out. He will have surgery to repair ACL tears in both knees. Freshman Drake Ayala could remove his redshirt and step in the Hawkeyes lineup.
Coe second-ranked heavyweight Kaleb Reeves has benefited from a busy offseason, competing in Greco-Roman tournaments and focusing on weight training. Both have paid dividends with a 12-0 start with 11 pins.
Iowa and Iowa State weren’t exchanging recipes when they came face-to-face after the Hawkeyes won Sunday’s dual, 22-11. Coe had a big weekend. Cael Happel won his debut and a local duo won Donnybrook titles.
