Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We want to thank EVERYONE who helped make the youth events happen this weekend! Things even seemed to go well despite the bleachers in the MPR not pulling out due to mechanical/electrical issues. Thank you for setting up and tearing down the mats! Thank you for working in the concession stand, at the admissions table, working the mat tables, making food runs, and cleaning up the gyms afterwards! Thank you to the Middle School wrestlers who helped work tables on Saturday and moved the mat from the basement! Thank you to the High School wrestlers who helped move the HS mat to and from the HS and worked mat tables on Sunday! Thank you to everyone who helped out! It is greatly appreciated by the whole association, boosters, and coaches at every level. Events like that can’t happen without everyone pitching in like we all did! We had 17 teams, over 500 wrestlers, and over 800 matches take place over 2 days of wrestling!

Both teams went 3-2 and took 4th and 5th place out of 10 teams.
