Good Morning Parents,
Big night for our young men and program. Should
be fun. Thanks to Gwen Brandon and all the
mothers who helped with the team dinner(s).
Match tonight is at six. Wrestlers should report
at 4:15 to my classroom.

allowance on the weight classes they have already
made scratch weight.
We will have a booster meeting on Monday
January 9th at the Brookshire at 6 PM to
plan for the Mooney (Jan 21). This is one of
the biggest events that we run each year and
need everyone to help. It is also the 50th
annual tournament (the longest running
nationally, that I know of). Please send a
family rep to this meeting.
JV will wrestle at New Lothrop Friday afternoon

3 PM. JV will weigh in tomorrow after practice.

be had. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the

Good Morning Parents,
What a great night! From top to bottom every guy
wrestled with some fire and we earned the benefit
with two great wins. We are in a great spot
heading into the second half of the season to
accomplish some great goals!
Rest of the year schedule is
. I will communicate JV trip with
wrestlers today so we know who is going.
We will start setting up after weigh in on Friday
I believe the boys will want to eat following
weigh in, if we could get a pasta dinner setup,
that would be much appreciated.
Williamston Wrestling is known for hosting
well-run tournaments and it is a credit to our
parents and volunteers for the tireless effort to
keep this going!
Friday we need a crew of dads to help Todd Demand
setup the head table around 5 PM.
We will need someone to pickup SPAGS pizza on
Friday around 5:45 for the seeding meeting. We
will also need an assortment of water and pop.
I am sure Michelle Diamond has the concessions
setup for Friday and Saturday.
We will only setup tables in the new hallway.
The boys will work on getting these setup after
mats are put down.
I will most likely be in the building by 7 AM. We
are going light on concessions so I am guessing
any time after 7 AM is good for people to start
Stacey Murray gave me a list of workers, we will
need help throughout the day. Should you need a
crash course in working a table, I will give an
orientation at 8 AM. We keep you fed and plenty
drinks and you get the best seat in the house!
We would appreciate help from any MS or siblings
of wrestlers to assist at the tables tapping or
running bout cards. I do know several MS
wrestlers are already in for the weekend.
All Wrestlers should be at the HS at 7:30
Saturday, all wrestlers will get 5 matches.
Thanks in advance for all the hard work that will
be put in over the weekend.
Yours in Hornet Wrestling, Coach Weber
Good Morning Parents,
We had a good showing this weekend at Vicksburg &
Corunna. We need to finish strong this week for a
solid push come January.
We are away Wednesday at Dansville and both squads
home for our ICL tournament. Please let Stacey
Murray or Mika Hulliberger if you can assist with
table help and Michelle Diamond for concessions.
We will need plenty of help throughout the day.
We have a larger than usual list on the
eligibility scene. Some wrestlers will go
straight to homework lab this week and then come
to practice at 4 PM and end at 6 PM.
Yours in Hornet Wrestling, Coach Weber
Three Rivers called today and had three teams
cancel on them today. So, Three Rivers called

I will check my email before I leave school
tonight after little kid practice at 8 PM, if not
expect an email in the AM.
Have a great evening!
