The wrestling program has had steady and consistent improvements in both dual meet wins and tournament placings. In recent years, Warrior Wrestling has had multiple state qualifiers, state place winners and state champions.
The team has placed in the top seven in each of the last four seasons at the state traditional tournament including runner-up finishes in 2018 and 2021. The Warriors have placed second and sixth the last two years in the state dual tournament. Waukee finished third in the state dual tournament in 2021. Several Warriors have also gone on to compete at the collegiate level.
The Waukee Youth Wrestling program has grown from 30 participants to 150. Many of the youth in the program compete at the state and national level, and the program houses multi-year state and national champions and place winners. The future looks bright for Waukee Wrestling.
