Fareway Stores, Inc. and IAwrestle present the Dan Gable Ms. and Mr. Wrestler of the Year Awards in coordination with the Iowa Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association (IWCOA).

The IWCOA accepted nominations from high school coaches for student athletes in each of the three state wrestling classes for the men and combined all classes for the women’s award, regardless of their year in school and weight class. A committee selected by the IWCOA recently provided IAwrestle with a list of 15 finalist candidates for public input.

Fans have the ability to vote once per day at IAwrestle.com for their top wrestler in each category until January 15, when it will be narrowed down to the top 7. Please note, the fan vote winners will count as ONE vote towards the IWCOA’s committee votes in EACH round. (For example: Wrestler A received enough fan votes to place second in the poll but that does not guarantee them to move on to the next round. IWCOA has selected 12 coaches and officials to serve on the committee. The fan vote is the 13th vote.)

Another round of voting will take place from January 16-29 to determine the three finalists which will be announced on January 30. The Ms. Wrestler of the Year fan vote for overall winner will be open from January 30 to February 6. The Mr. Wrestler vote for overall winner will be open from January 30 to February 20.

The two runner-up student athletes in each class will each receive finalist award plaques. A duplicate Wrestler of the Year trophy and duplicate Wrestler of the Year runner-up plaques will be provided to each high school where finalists attend, for permanent placement in the high school trophy case.

A luncheon awards banquet will take place at the Fareway Conference Center in Boone, Iowa on Wednesday, March 1 at noon. Dan Gable and Mark Ironside will be our special guests handing out awards. Media is encouraged to attend.

VOTE ONCE EVERY 24 HOURS. PLEASE WAIT A FULL 24 HOURS. (FOR EXAMPLE: YOU CAN’T VOTE MONDAY AT 8PM AND THEN TUESDAY AT 8AM BECAUSE IT IS A NEW DAY. 24 HOURS MEANS 24 HOURS LIMIT APPLIES.)
