Hello wrestling Families,
OUR NOVICE TOURNAMENT ON MARCH 7TH IS OUR LAST HOME EVENT. WE WILL BE LOOKING FOR A LOT OF HELP THAT DAY AS WELL. DETAILS TO COME SOON.
This is the BIGGEST week of the season yet. Wednesday night, the Tri County Team wrestled and lost a tough match against Morristown for the National League Dual Championship. Second place is a great accomplishment for our team!
Sunday we had more than 20 wrestlers compete in the Twin County Districts and 6 in the Tri County Championship. More than half place! That is an excellent result for our team. Wrestlers who please 1st & 2nd at the Districts advance to wrestle Regions this Sunday at Hackensack. 1st place finishers from the Tri County Championship will wrestle this Sunday in the Tournament of Champions in Wayne against the Champions from the North Jersey League and the Jersey Shore League.
Good Luck to all participating wrestlers! Details to follow.
