Hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving!
We gave the guys a well-earned day off on Thursday to enjoy the time with their families, but we were back at it Friday and Saturday going hard to work off that turkey and get ready for our first competition!
Check out a quick clip here:
It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without giving some thanks, so a HUGE thank you to all of the alumni who came back to help out the program over the past week - all without being asked. We had over 20 guys stopping by and I can tell you our coaches and our wrestlers truly appreciate your support! I always feel so honored and humbled this time of year to be part of such a special program.
Let's get rolling!
We kick off our competitive season this Saturday at the Horace Greeley Duals. This is a great first competition for us - we'll wrestle four duals against some great competition. It's a really good tournament for us to see where our guys measure up right now.
As you know, everything we do is with an eye towards preparing our guys to be at their absolute best in the post-season, so we're really intentional about who we send to what competitions. Expect to see some line-up shuffling throughout the season to make this happen. We plan on sending 10 guys to Horace Greeley this weekend, while we hold the rest back to train for the coming week.
We'll make sure to keep you posted!
So, of course we couldn't kick off the season without giving you guys a special never-before-seen sneak preview of our 2016-2017 Poster Schedule featuring our six returning Sectional Placefinishers.
Here ya go:
