Cam Baarda of Southeast Polk has committed to wrestle for Grand View University. Baarda was a 2018 state qualifier as a Sophomore. He went 19-3 as a Junior for the Rams. He was also a runner up at the Junior State Greco Roman wrestling tournament this spring. He chose Grand View over Buena Vista and Loras. He plans to wrestle either 145 or 152 this season and projects at 149 or 157 at the next level.
Baarda told IAwrestle “Grand View lives the championship lifestyle and I think that Grand View is the best place for me to reach my full potential.” He added “I would like to thank all my coaches and family that have pushed me to get to this point.”
Baarda joins Sam Kallem of Ankeny as class of 2020 commits for the Vikings.
