We have gotten off to a great start so far this year! Lots of action in December: two tournaments–El Dorado and Megatron–and 4 scrimmages: Valdez, two San Clemente scrimmages, and Laguna Hills/Marco Forrester Middle School. As we move into January, we have a lot of momentum!
Here are some highlights:
*At the El Dorado tournament, we had 28 competitors, 16 medalists, 7 of them first place. Nate Garrison, Will Garrison, Craig Phoenix, Jake Herrera, Osten Dandan, Diego Garcia, Max Park, Caleb Park, Max Callas, all medaled. Jorge Gonzalez, Ian Rudner, Kyler Petronis, Josh Bentley, Treyvon Shodja, William Burks, and Sam Callas all took first.
*Osten Dandan was nominated our first wrestler of the week for his gutsy performance.
*At Megatron, 3 out of 7 Big Kats medaled: Trey, Brock Kenney, and Caleb Park. All came away with some great experience. Tough tournament!

We are looking forward to a great 2015!
Thanks to all who came out to the summer wrestling camp these last two weeks. 23 kids from grades 2-9 had fun and improved their skills. Lots of new wrestlers, and our returning wrestlers are really starting to pick up momentum. We were able to have 3 separate groups of wrestlers according to skill level. Its an exciting time in our program. Everyone had a blast!
Info on our winter session will be released in Mid September. Check back then!
A HUGE thanks goes out to all who came out to our spring program the last six weeks. Each night we had between 15 and 25 kids. We greatly enjoyed your enthusiasm, and are happy that you “caught the bug” for our wonderful sport.
The picture below is of the Wednesday crew the last week. See you all in July (summer camp info is in the post under this one)!
