Taking a break and having some fun at the hotel between wrestling

With a group of the Green Demons traveling to Holmen and LaCrosse over the weekend, our wrestlers faced competition that they could be meeting in upcoming Regional Tournaments.  Saturday, 9 wrestlers competed at the Holmen Viking Youth Tournament.  With some close matches also came some tough losses as well as some tasting of sweet victory.  Makinlea Gast impressed the crowd in an exciting 4th round match, ultimately tying the score 10-10 for an overtime round, in which she was defeated by takedown.  As sometimes happens, Rylan Burrows had to face our very own Sierra Kemp, who as a first year wrestler always gives it her all and exhibits grand determination.  Brandon Kniprath achieved 1st place, with three pins for the day, while Jusytn Kniprath won two matches by pinfall, and Nicholas Prasalowicz with one win by pin. 

At the L.A.W. (LaCrosse Area Wrestlers) Youth Tournament on Sunday, 9 was again the magic number and many our wrestlers went home with some hard lessons and losses to learn from. Rylan Burrows achieved the only 1st place for the day with one pin and two wins.  Sebastian Billington also had one pin and one win for the day, leaving with a 2nd place standing. As we get closer to Youth Folkstyle Regionals, our youth continue to seek out competition equal to what they will meet at any of the regional locations across the state, and work to build on their strengths while learning to overcome their individual challenges and work to consistently improve their skills.   In the upcoming weeks, our wrestlers will travel to Oxford, Pardeeville, Menasha and others to seek out a variety of competition and continue to prepare for Regionals. In addition to our regular youth practices and for a second time this year, the Green Demons are hosting a Camp of Champs training clinic this Friday, February 19th for additional skill and team building activities during their school day off.
