About this Episode

On Episode 108, Sam and Jack are joined by the first-ever Iowa Women's Wrestling commit and the pound-for-pound top women's wrestling recruit in the country, Kylie Welker. We get a background on Kylie's life and career, what got her introduced to wrestling and why Iowa. We talk about her relationship with Women's Wrestling Coach Chun, training at the Olympic Training facility at 16, her Dad selling her on wrestling opportunities at a young age and the responsibilities that she has as a sister that keep her grounded. We briefly talk about her official visit during the Penn State/Iowa dual weekend and how the Pentacrest hill is not to be messed with.
