Wilkes coach excited to host Final X match
August 29, 2019


Wilkes wrestling coach Jon Laudenslager missed a call from an unknown number listed in Colorado Springs last week. He didn’t know for sure who was trying to reach him, but he had a good gut feeling.

Sure enough, Laudenslager was soon in discussions with USA Wrestling to bring one of the nation’s most highly anticipated showdowns to Wilkes-Barre.

“I gave them a call back and things happened pretty quickly,” he said.
