The latest from Coach Matt

Thanks to everyone who pitched in to help this weekend.  We had 601 wrestlers compete and were 100% complete by 2 o'clock.


Our guys got a ton of matches (133 by my count) The one word I kept hearing from our coaches was "Effort"  We were thrilled with the Effort put in today,   If our guys are willing to put effort in at practices and then focus their energy for events, they will end up finding their greatness!   We are on the right track.


Our lower room is closed for the year, but we still have the banquet to look forward to in late March.  We can return singlets at the banquet.  I will have the exact date and specifics nailed down soon and pass it along to you.


AS for the older kids, there will be regular practices next week.   We will be at NotreDame (7655 W. Dempster Ave, Niles IL 60714)  on Sunday.  Would like to get the kids there by 7:15 to weigh in. Weigh ins will close at 8, so don't be late.   Wrestling will start at 9
