We had an amazing weekend at both Tulsa & the IKWF Open!
First off Seth Mendoza...your 55lb National Champion & Jase Salin...with a big 4th place finish! What an amazing accomplishment for both of them! They both battled through their brackets and came up with huge wins!

All in all a great weekend of wrestling, we could not be prouder of all of you who represented LWWC this weekend!
I will have the squares with me again this week at Central on Tuesday & Thursday, you can also see Coach Jeff at West on Tuesday or Thursday. As a reminder this is our mandatory fundraiser with a $50 fee per wrestler and a family cap of $100. You can either purchase a minimum of one $50 square or two $25 squares per wrestler. Last years payouts were $$500/per quarter & $1000 for final for the $50 grid & $250/per quarter and $500 for the final on the $25 grid. As soon as the sheets are filled & teams are announced we will blind draw numbers and email out a copy of the completed grids.
Group 2 & 3 will be combined moving forward! Technique will be taught from 6-7:30pm with live wrestling from 7:30-8pm. The last 1/2 hour is optional to all current group 2 wrestlers, but encouraged.
Group 1 @ Central on Tuesday & Thursday from 6-7:30
Groups 2/3 @ Central on Tuesday & Thursday from 6-8pm & Saturday @ West from 10-11:30am
Group 4 @ West on Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 6-8pm
This weekend is the Oak Park Tournament on Sunday located at Oak Park & River Forest HS 201 Scoville, Oak Park. Weigh in are 6:30-8am. Wrestling is due to start at 9:15am. There will be a tot, bantam, intermediate, novice & senior division. Tot & Bantam will be a 4 man bracket, everyone else an 8 man.
We also will be forming our line up this week at practice for the Didi Duals being held on Saturday. We will talk to new parents if we feel your wrestler will be a good fit for the dual team. This dual will take place at LW Central and is a midget dual for 10 & under. Wrestlers need to make specific weight for these duals. We will take the older more experienced wrestler at each weight class. We will not have a full line up, but we do want to still give our kids a chance to have the dual experience this year. If there are multiple wrestlers interested at one weight class we will have challenges to see who will earn the spot.
There is now a place under the Tournament Sign Up Tab called Enter Your Wrestlers Scores Here. After you compete at a tournament, please get online and enter in your wrestler's information before you forget.
I am patiently awaiting the second apparel order, as soon as it arrives I will have it in your hands!
