Junior Owen Vernon is a member of the Ankeny Centennial wrestling team. He has helped the sixth-ranked Jaguars to a 13-3 dual record.
“Owen has filled in at 182 pounds even though he is a 160-pounder,” said Centennial coach Jay Groth. “He has had success on the mat and been valuable in helping us win the Dallas Center-Grimes Invitational and other duals, and he traveled with us to The Clash in Rochester the first weekend in January.”
Centennial will travel to Ames on Thursday for a CIML Central Conference dual meet against the Little Cyclones. The Jaguars will then compete in the Osage Duals on Saturday.
