Prairie saves day for Metro grapplers

Thank goodness for Prairie.

The Prairie Hawks won their regional dual meet tournament Wednesday night with a convincing 51-21 victory over North Scott, but none of the other Metro wrestling teams qualified for the state tournament.

The seventh-ranked Kennedy Cougars got punched by No. 13 Clinton, 44-26, in the regional finals at Kennedy.

The ninth-ranked Jefferson J-Hawks were stunned by No. 24 Dowling Catholic in the regional semifinals at Johnston and never got a chance to wrestle for a regional title.

The 18th-ranked Linn-Mar Lions lost to No. 4 Dubuque Hempstead, 49-27, in the regional finals after sticking No. 16 Bettendorf in the semifinals, 45-24.

The sixth-ranked Prairie Hawks (19-3) will face fifth-ranked Johnston (21-2) in the quarterfinals of the Class 3A state dual meet tournament next Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.

The other quarterfinals feature Southeast Polk (16-0) against Clinton (16-2), West Des Moines Valley (21-1) against Waverly-Shell Rock (23-4), and Hempstead (27-0) against Indianola (18-2).

Prairie claims 4th MVC title in row

The best wrestling in the Mississippi Valley Conference is happening right here in Cedar Rapids.

And the best of the best are the Prairie Hawks.

Prairie captured its fourth straight conference title Saturday by winning the MVC SuperMeet and leading a 1-2-3 finish by Cedar Rapids schools at the Prairie gym.

Jefferson finished second in the team standings and Kennedy was third. On top of that, Metro wrestlers won 10 of the 14 individual titles with Prairie, Jefferson, Kennedy, Xavier and Linn-Mar grapplers all climbing to the top of the victory stand.

"Obviously we're on an upbeat right now with the three schools finishing up high there," said Jefferson Coach Dick Briggs. "Prairie is always real good, we've been good the last few years and now Kennedy is up there. It's good to see them (the Cougars) up there as well."

Uthoff wrestling up a storm for Hawks

Cedar Rapids Prairie wrestling coach Kane Thompson has known Sam Uthoff for years, ever since he taught Uthoff at Prairie Heights Elementary School in the College Community district.

Thompson liked the kid's spunk even then.

"I knew how active he was and how much of a go-getter he was, from the time he was in first grade," Thompson said Thursday night.

He likes Uthoff even more now as a high school senior at Prairie, where he's the top-ranked wrestler in Class 3A at 132 pounds.

Uthoff raised his record to a sparkling 27-0 Thursday with a pin in 1 minute, 38 seconds as Prairie topped Linn-Mar, 45-22, in a Mississippi Valley Conference meet at Prairie.
