larachavezIn the next Night of Conflict match announcement we are happy to announce that one of the state’s top senior talents Triston Lara of Fort Dodge will compete in a matchup against the nation’s #17 ranked wrestler Niko Chavez.

For Lara, this match presents an opportunity to prove himself as one of the nation’s best. A three-time state medalist for Fort Dodge, Lara was finally able to reach the top of the podium by winning 3A’s 126-pound crown this past February after taking fourth as a freshman and second as a sophomore. Lara has always been a big name in the state of Iowa, being tabbed as IA Wrestle’s seventh best wrestler in the class of 2017 and was ranked eighth in the IA Wrestle Fab 50 rankings – which included wrestlers from the 2017, ’18, and ’19 classes.

Coming up from Missouri will be Chavez, who is a highly accomplished wrestler out of Willard High School. Most recently Chavez was the seventh place medalist at UWW Cadet Freestyle Nationals in Akron, Ohio but he has also claimed top finishes at Corn Cob Nationals, Southern Plains, and USA Wrestling Folkstyle Nationals. Chavez is also a three-time Missouri state medalist, claiming gold this past year.
