For the first time ever, girls’ state wrestling champions were crowned in Iowa last week. What does the future hold for girls’ wrestling in the state? That’s a big topic of conversation on this week’s Pinning Combination with The Gazette’s K.J. Pilcher, The Predicament’s Wyatt Schultz and former Cedar Rapids Jefferson coach Dick Briggs.

Also in the high school segment, some MVC Super Meet history and a preview of this weekend’s conference tournaments.

In the college segment, Iowa State and Northern Iowa have yet to stumble in conference duals but a bigger hurdle looms for both, Iowa heavyweight Sam Stoll took the mat, Austin DeSanto caused some controversy and Wartburg’s streak continued.
