Sophomore Jackie Wells is a member of the Ankeny Centennial wrestling team. He has already enjoyed a lot of success on the mat this season.
“Jackie stepped into the lineup at 220 (pounds) during the Centennial Duals (on Dec. 8) and wrestled really well,” said Centennial coach Jay Groth. “He won his JV match against Ankeny (on Dec. 13) by fall, won the JV tournament at Indianola the next night in dominating fashion and then finished fourth in the Don Miller Invitational at Fort Dodge the following day.
“He has been doing a great job improving every week and pushing our starter at 220 to improve as well,” Groth added.
