Tiger Takedown #11

Tiger Takedown Newsletter  #11              FINAL   2015-2016                             2/22/2016


The main event of the season is over, and the hard work has paid off with solid dividends. The tough schedule through the season has proven to help the young tigers grow up.  They wrestled a very solid State Tournament. The goal of returning place winners into next season’s room was accomplished, as 6 wrestlers with a State Medal will be in the room. Last year’s 77 point and 10th place finish was replaced with a 139.5 and a 5th place finish.  It was good to see them wrestle at a higher level of confidence. Wrestling is one of the last high school sponsored sports that pushes a young person to learn that you only get out of it worthy of what you are willing to put into it. There is nowhere to hide out on the mat, one on one, and if you slacked in practice or cut any corners; your outcome and your teams, will, and should be affected.
