Along with unparalleled coverage of the championships, the broadcast includes special stories featuring inspiring young Iowans:

  • Atlantic student reporter Brynna Kern uses her talents to tell the story of Zoey Moore receiving her first power wheelchair and how that impacts Zoey's life. Brynna won first prize in her class at the Iowa High School Press Association contest for "Best Video" with Zoey's story.
  • Laura Kipnusu from Valley High School is a Student Ambassador for Genesis Youth Foundation, a wrestler and a rugby player. Her parents immigrated from Africa to give their future children more opportunities. Their sacrifices are not lost on young Laura: she plans to wrestle at Grand View University next year. 
  • Two Courage League Sports athletes, Cole Quinlin, 21, and Evie McLeish, 13, share how their love of sports helps them grow as individuals and inspire others. Courage League Sports is a nonprofit adaptive sports and recreation organization that offers year-round programming for children and adults with physical, cognitive or emotional disabilities.
