A special thank you is in order for all the great parents, families and fans that supported our team this year! Thank you to all five of our wonderful managers that helped take care of our wrestlers throughout the year and didn't miss a meet! On behalf of myself and coach Josh Wardenburg I would like to say thank you to all the wrestlers for providing us with a great group to work with and will continue to work with next year!
