Outdoor wrestling practice provides opportunities, exposure for Iowa State
September 29, 2017


Most of the time, Iowa State’s wrestlers practice in a room the width of a mat and four mats long. It has no windows and it’s hot.

But on Thursday, the Cyclones practiced outside, with Jack Trice Stadium in the background, just before the Iowa State football team hosted Texas.

“It sure helps when it’s sunny and 75 degrees,” coach Kevin Dresser said. “It was a great day for us to get out here and showcase our guys a little bit. Our guys like it and our fans love it. We do a lot of hard things in cold months so to get outside and do something hard on a nice sunny day is great.”
