Michael Moncivais takes 6th Place at STATE!!
Every coach strives to have their kids peak come time for districts and the state tournament.
This year we had one such young man. Michael reached that plateau this year with a remarkable stretch. Going into Districts Michael was seeded 6th. Not only did he take the district conference title, he pinned all three opponent in the process. This alone would of made for a great end of the year. BUT, Michael was not ready to call it quite yet. He had one goal in mind... make the podium at State! So, what does Michael do, he goes out and in his first two matches he pins his opponents on his way to the semi-final round. In the Semi final round he lost to the eventual state champion Logan Ryan from Bettendorf.
Michael was not our only wrestler who had a wins this year at state. Kyle Briggs and PJ Rashed both fell one win short of the medal round. Drake Allen had two tough matches but came up on the losing end in both matches. All in all it was a very nice season. What impressed me most was how we kept getting better as the season progressed. The kids are started believing they can win, and as we know that makes all the difference. There is a bright future for our J-Hawks. We could have quite a few more wrestlers making state in 2014.

2013 Wabash Wrestling Camps
J-Hawk Wrestling Family,

This is a camp opportunity that was shared with us by Coach Martin. We would love to send our team to this camp and have an opportunity to learn from world class coaches and also give our athletes an opportunity to compete as a team. We know that this is an expense so we wanted to give our families the chance to come up with funds to support this camp. Please let us know if you have questions and if you are interested in attending. This would be a tremendous step for our team in reaching our goals for next season. Click here for more information!

Parents and athletes,
It is never too early to think about preparing for next year (unless, of course, you are a state qualifier). I received an email this weekend regarding the Cedar Hawk Wrestling Club . This is a great bargain for the instruction and will expose our wrestlers to the highest quality drilling partners in eastern Iowa. This is a huge part of our development and critical in our goals to bring home medals and trophies from the state duals and traditional tournaments. The cost is $30 per month plus the cost of your USA Card ($36 online…which provides insurance). The club meets twice a week, starting March 5 - May 30, 2012

Tuesday & Thursday Nights, 6:00pm – 7:30pm. Please let Coach Orton know if you have questions. In the past we have car-pooled to Coe College. This is right in our back yard – please take advantage of this opportunity to improve.

The van ride to Des Moines and the 2013 state tournament will have 4 J-Hawks with their gear packed ready to finish what they started back on the first night of practice!

Kyle Briggs, PJ Rashed, Michael Moncivais and Drake Allen

What a day! Freshman Kyle Briggs (113) was our first wrestler to book his ticket to DSM taking second place. Junior PJ Rashed (120) also took second and will make a return trip to DSM this year.

Senior Drake Allen (182) will also be riding in the van to state taking second place. We also had a couple wrestlers come up one match short. Senior Cody Hensel (126) did his part winning his final match but by RULE fell one place short. Sophomore Josh Allen (170) also won his final match but like Cody, he finished in Third too. Brenden Baker, Jontel Ware and Luke Sedlacek took fourth, while Kelly May, Dalton Kuehl and Dale Deaton all finished in fifth. Congrats to all our wrestlers.

On a personal note... I realized Saturday that my blood is truely bleeding Full J-Hawk Blue.
It was tough that first year going to Ames with our boys as that was the first time I had stepped on the mats at Ames High not wearing Ames High Little Cyclone colors. :)
Dec. 15 — The varsity team headed over to the always tough Red Owens Holiday Tournament at Southeast Polk coming home with a nice 3rd place finish. We went 2-2 on the day and feel it could easily have went 3-1 on the day but for a couple bad breaks. We started off on a sour note losing to SEP 15-62. Drake Allen and Michael Moncivais both recorded nice pins, while Kyle Briggs came away with a tough fought 12-8 win.
Second up on the day for our J-Hawks was DSM East. We came away with better results in this dual defeating East 45-29. Freshman Brenden Baker was thrown into the fire this his first week of competition as he wrestled 3 of the top 10 3A kids in the state. After three tough loses, his desire to never giving up never faulted as he walked off the mat head, and hand held high pinning Fisher from East.
Next up was DSM Roosevelt and we kept the momentium going with a dominating 63-18 victory. J. Allen, D. Allen, D. Deaton, C. Hensel, K. May, N. Dreckman and L. Sedlacek all recorded pins.
Unfortunately we ended the day on a sour note losing a tough winnable battle vs. Knoxville
36-40. D. Deaton, B. Baker, K. Briggs, M. Moncivais, K. May and Nick Dreckman all came home feeling good with pins. But we also gave up too many to bring home a win.
Dec. 13 — Thursday saw our boys travel to Dubuque Senior for another double dual with Senior and CR Prairie. We started off the night with Prairie coming away with mixed feelings in the 58-12 loss. Michael Moncivias defeated in sudden victory 1 Prairie's #8 ranked wrestler in the state Dylan Becker 10-8. We had some other strong performances from our boys. Kyle Briggs continued his freshman campaign with a nice 6-4 win. If you can come away feeling good about a loss, then Drake Allen can feel that as he lost a very tough 1-0 decision to Prairie's #2 ranked 3A wrestler Austin Gould. Drake knows wrestling the best in the state now will only make him that much better come districts.
Our second dual of the night ended on a brighter note as we defeated Dubuque Senior 40-37 in a close battle. Kelly May, Dalton Kuehl, Kyle Briggs, Cody Hensel and Michael Moncivais all recorded falls on the night.
Dec. 10 — Our Freshman traveled down to Iowa City West for a 9th Grade meet going 7-7 on the night. We had three wrestlers going 2-0 on the night. Joseph Sibomana, Nick Dreckman and Callahan Moore. Alex Moncivais also went 1-1 on the night.

Kyle Briggs, Luke Sedlacek and Dale Deaton all took second while Nick Dreckman and Seth Jellison brought home very nice third place finishes.
Dec. 8 — Our JV team split up again going to the always tough SEP JV Invitational and the Marion JV Invite. I will have to get back to you on the results from SEP, but I can tell you we had 5 kids who wrestled their butts (oops) off at Marion. Joseph Sibomana has been one of those kids this year that just keeps making you smile. He pinned all three of his oppenents in route to the title.
Dec. 6 — Thursday saw our boys head up to Cedar Falls again for a double dual along with CR Washington. The guys wrestled tough going 1-1 one the night for both varsity and junior varsity.

Chittick 2nd, Q. Bruce 2nd, N. Petersen 3rd, C. Moore 3rd, C. Aarhus 3rd, T. Hitchings 3rd.
Nov. 29 — J-Hawks open the season this year at home with two very nice performances against Waterloo East and Iowa City West. In dominating form our J-Hawks took care of East in easy fashion 71-6. In the second dual of the night we gave Iowa City West everythting they could handle losing a close dual 31-35. What could of happened if we had our full varsity roster we will never know, but the outcome could very well have been a huge win!
