A new coaching staff looks to turn things around at Central College this year. Eric VanKley returns to Iowa after spending time starting the wrestling progam at the University Great Falls and building it into an NAIA contender. He is joined by NCAA qualifier Jason Zastrow as his top assistant. With a freshman-heavy lineup, success will not come easily in the Iowa Conference, but the foundation for the future is being built now at Central College.
