Eight of our boys competed in the Midwest Classic in Tinley Park, taking away a 1st, 3rd, and 4th place on the day. The team placed 9th out of 37 teams, which was a great showing considering the few kids we had competing! We believe this is the first time one of our club members has brought home the championship from this elite tournament, so we are very proud!
We sent 35 rookies to a tournament in Aurora, and many of them wrestled their first matches ever! There were some nerves and scary moments for the youngest rookies, but they all pushed through and came away smiling at the end of the day. We have a huge group of tots and bantams this year, and if this tournament is any indication, the future is bright for our club!
We also sent 11 boys to the Mid-Winter Massacre in Arlington Heights, and they wrestled tough at a tough tournament!
After a flurry of new kids registering with us, we now have 91 local boys on our roster. This is roughly 20% more than we had last year, and we are really excited to see how the rest of the season unfolds. Many of our kids are setting their sights on Rockford in March. Stay tuned!
