The Middle School wrestlers will head to Neillsville this Saturday for a team tournament and then to West Salem on Monday for a conference meet with Holmen, West Salem and Viroqua. The Neillsville tournament will follow a team dual format with specific weight classes. It should be a good experience for our wrestlers in dual meet competitions. The tournament begins at 9:30 AM.
Due to the large numbers on our team we have been having some very long conference meets and this has been an area of concern for us and our parents this season. Unfortunately it has caused long nights and limited matches for our wrestlers. The only solution is to split our team and go to different meets on the same night. It is too late in the season to be done this year but will be something that we can begin with to start upcoming seasons.
Greater opportunities for matches will exist at the upcoming Marshfield and Viroqua tournaments. We have also added a dual at Holmen on Thursday, December 15 for our more experienced wrestlers, that will begin at 5:00 PM at Holmen HS.
The coaches are thankful to the parents and wrestlers for their understanding and support as we work through this season.
