More than 400 youth wrestlers and their families packed the Iola High School gymnasium Sunday.
The occasion was the annual Iola Open, a youth wrestling tournament hosted by the Iola Wrestling Club.
While the club has hosted annual competitions in the past, none were as big as Sunday’s, noted Jana Taylor, one of the 40-strong volunteers who helped put the competition together.
