    Sunny Day! Finally back in the wrestling room!!!!

    We started practice tonight, had 12 kids show up. These are voluntary for the kids that want to get a head start on the season, I think more will start showing up when word gets around school. These are just 2hrs a night 2 nights a week, not an organized team practice just a couple of dads helping the kids that want it.
    Four of the kids play football, so they pretty much showed up right after FB practice.
    It was encouraging to see the kids putting in the work voluntarily.

    Nice dedication!

    Some of our guys just wrapped up their wrestling season a several weeks back after nationals.

    It will be a while until we ask them to start up again. Most are already competing or training for the fall sports (Football,Cross Country etc.)

    We are hosting a preseason take down tourney for K-12 though. We expect a large turnout because it is a preseason event it will not count against "match counts" for the high school age wrestlers.
    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.
