Eagles Wrestling Club - Mt. Ararat Tournament
Another long day of wrestling, thanks once again to coaches, parents and family members for your continued support of our wrestlers. Berwick Youth Wrestling had 35 wrestlers today and brought home 28 medals. [results]
Don Twombley the photographer dropped off the kids pictures at practice on Tuesday night. Stop by the table at practice if you have not yet received them. If there are any issues with the photos please save your envelope. On the envelope is the contact information as well as information for your child. Contact Don and he will be happy to make any corrections as needed.
I'm sure those of you at the Die Hard Tournament saw some shiny new singlets on some of our wrestlers. They are Maroon singlets with BERWICK done in black lettering and a white outline. Due to the high expense for these singlets we were only able to purchase 24 new singlets this year. The good news is that we've created a new plan going forward where will be budgeting a certain amount of our money to purchase uniforms (singlets and warm-up gear) each year. Prior to the start of the season we will review the condition of the uniforms and make purchases to improve Berwick Youth Wrestling. Please note that the best way to keep the singlets looking great is to wash in cool water and avoid the dryer, line dry only. This time of year they will air dry in a few hours and this will extend their life.
We have a few more singlets to hand out at practice on Tuesday. If you received a new singlet, it does have a number on it and we will be collecting them along with the first singlet, at our uniform collection night on April 8th.
Die Hard Tournament
After a rough start with the 'silent' tournament it was so great to see 17 out of the 39 wrestlers come away with medals. We saw a lot of hard fought battles with these kids on Sunday. [results]
There is one youth small t-shirt and a few Youth Hoodies available for sale. Please swing by the table at practice if you are interested. The cost of the t-shirt is $12 and the Hoodies $30.
It is always fantastic to see all of the Berwick Youth Wrestling shirts at the tournaments! Please have your child continue to wear their t-shirt over their singlet at the tournaments.
Oxford Hills Tournament
After a long day the Berwick wrestlers hard work paid off. Of the 30 wrestlers which traveled to Oxford Hills, 22 of them came away with medals. Great job! We know it was tough competition for the kids as well as the family in the stands. Thank You to all of the coaches as well as the parents for making the trip! [results]
Wow! What a great first tournament. Congratulations to all the Berwick wrestlers. Many of you had never been on the mats for competition before, but you all did a super job. We had 41 total wrestlers compete and at least 19 of them are new to wrestling!!! [results]
A big THANK YOU to the coaches for all you do...can't begin to list it!
