Riley Burke

Iowa Falls-Alden senior Riley Burke has accomplished many goals during his four years in the program, including his 100th match victory earlier this season. His individual improvement has mirrored the success of the team.

At every wrestling practice, Riley Burke loses to his drill partner. But those defeats play a big role in why the Iowa Falls-Alden senior wins big in front of packed gymnasiums.

Burke - a returning state qualifier at 138 pounds - jumped up two weight classes (152) and is currently 24-1 for the Cadets, as they prepare to host this Saturday's North Central Conference Meet in Iowa Falls.
