As a reminder, this is the last week of practice for any wrestlers that are no longer competing in tournaments or regionals after this weekend. They will practice tonight and Thursday.   They are also encouraged to attend the mini meet on Sunday at DGS at 9am.  For the mini meet please do not arrive prior to 8:45am.

If your son is a pool balcony wrestlers and plans to continue to wrestle in tournaments and/or regionals, he is invited to start practicing up in the Varsity Room with the older group starting Feb. 9th.  Again, this is only for the wrestlers that wish to continue competing. I have attached the tournament signup sheet that needs to be completed.  Please turn in the sheet and fees at practice.

Tonight and Thursday, Wendy will be collecting singlets from any wrestlers that are not planning on doing any more tournament and still have a singlet. If your son is no longer competing, please have him bring his singlet to one of these practices.

More information soon on the pool balcony wrestlers end of season Pizza Party will be held at DGS.  Tentatively it is set for Monday, February 29th.   I will get the flyer out in the next few days.
