Good Morning Parents,
Wrestling season is right around corner.  5 days!  We have been having challenging boot camp workouts and I am confident we will be ready for the season!
The schedule is online, please check for updates.
We will have our mandatory MHSAA nutrition meeting Monday November 12 at 6:30, this will serve as our Meet the Team night and I will outline program expectations, key dates, booster meeting, and any other questions that there may be.
Couple of reminders:
I have attached info regarding the Mackinac trip next weekend.  It is expected for team members to attend.  This is a great way for the team to form unity and tackle a challenging task.  If cost is an issue, please do not hesitate and the club can cover the expense.  We would like a count Monday to reserve rooms.
I will need at least 2-3 more drivers for next week to Mackinac.  Please let me know if you can attend. 
We are at the hill today and our new baseball coach, Ricky Clark, will be running the last day of boot camp tomorrow, as the rest of the coaching staff are at the Michigan Wrestling Association clinic with Ohio State Head Coach Tom Ryan.
Now is the time to prepare for March. MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Coach Weber


Please remind (send) your son to bring warm clothes and cleats tomorrow for boot camp.  We will be running to the stadium and doing our workout on the hill and will drive back.  We should be done around 4:30-4:45
The Diamonds and Stacey Murray have put together a tailgate for the boys once they return to the high school from their workout.
Good luck to all our athletes this weekend in post-season play!
Coach Weber
