Wed 1-15-2020

AMES - Miles Knuckles, a freshman 133-pounder for Iowa Lakes Community College, has been Wrestler of the Week in the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference.

Knuckles, from Akron, Ohio, won all five of his matches for the Lakers at the NJCAA Duals in Miami, Okla. He won two matches by falls, one by major decision and two by major decision. ILCC moved into 20th in the latest NJCAA ratings.

"Miles has been progressing well," said Iowa Lakes coach Cody Alesch. "You can tell that the confidence is growing as he continues to wrestle better each time out. Miles puts up points fast so as he continue to strengthen his conditioning really good things are going to happen as we approach the post season,"

The Lakers are scheduled to compete in the Minnesota West Open Saturday in Worthington.
