-Thank you to all the wrestlers, stats, managers who helped at the Youth Tournament on Saturday. YOU did an amazing job!
-A special thank you to Ryan Snyder and Eric Sedlecek (and anyone I may have missed) for helping roll out mats on Friday night!
-Thank you to all the parents who helped at the youth tournament, as well. Helping at the TakeDown Cancer table, donating to the silent auction, advertising the Golf Outing, etc.
-Thank you to all the coaches who helped out Thursday-Saturday.
-Thank you to Coach Brown for taking our 9th graders to the state tournament on Saturday. All 3 of our kids won at least one match. Max Crowe placed 2nd in state and Tyler Jones finished 6th.
Tuesday-Regular practice. Youth Practice 6:30 PM at West Jr. High
