2018 Review of Accomplishments:
As a Club:
Hosted another successful wrestling Tea Youth Tournament with 550 wrestlers participating. Club participation numbers have plateaued with 99 registered wrestlers. Our goal is to have 10 wrestlers from 6th grade going into 7th.
Our first state tourney 10 years ago we had 3 state qualifiers with 2 place finishers, this year we had 30 qualify with 20 place finishers (5 State Champions, 5 Runner-ups). This sets a new record for the number of wrestlers in the finals. We had 72 wrestlers participate at Districts with 66 placing. We have crowned a total of 21 AAU State Champions & 23 Runner-ups & 126 Place finishers. BUILDING TRADITIONS!!
