North Fayette Valley hosted the 2020 Upper Iowa Conference Wrestling Tournament on Saturday and thanks to a powerful performance, was crowned the 2020 champion of the conference.

“We definitely wrestled up to our potential,” said Jacob Pedersen, head coach, following the strong performance that included a nearly 55-point spread between the TigerHawks and second place MFL/MarMac. “We got every match to go our way throughout the day. That usually doesn’t happen; there are usually a dozen or so matches that you wish you could have back.”

The NFV performance included a total of six conference champions, including Nick Koch (106), Levi Lauer (132), Joel Grimes (128), Alex Streif (152), Kale Rodgers (170), and Chase Cooley (182).

While NFV finished with a significant lead over the Bulldogs, Pedersen knew that his team would need to have a stellar day to earn the school’s first UIC trophy since 2015.

Iowa caucus muddle

Iowa caucus muddle

While the state, and the country, waits for the final Iowa Democratic Caucus results, one thing is sure: President Donald Trump secured 97.15 percent of the republican caucus votes in Fayette County, and 97.1 percent statewide.

The question on everyone’s mind, however, is who will likely be running against the president in the 2020 presidential election. 

The Iowa Caucuses are an especially noteworthy as they are the first major contest of the United States presidential primary season.  The caucuses serve as a strong indicator of how a presidential candidate will do in other states.  Historically, Iowa’s winners likely go on to receive the national nomination.
