December 9:  Little Huskies and Parents:

This is the first of our weekly e-mail briefings.

Wrestlers of the Week
We took a few lumps on Sunday, but our 15 kids worked hard and learned a ton. The three Wrestlers of the Week are Nick Kowalczuk, he won a very tough bracket. Josh Halpin won both of his matches on the way to a gold. Eric Harris worked his butt off. He picked up a victory in his last match.

Practice Wrestler of the Week
It's always really tough to pick one wrestler as practice wrestler of the week; so many of the kids worked so hard. This week, Ryan Fish separated himself from the pack. The high school 103 pound wrestler needed a workout partner, so Ryan spent the week practicing with the high school. Those practices are twice as long and 14 times harder than ours. Way to go Ryan!!!!

Upcoming Events
On Saturday, Dec 13th, we're going to host an informal meet at OPRF (This event is not on the printed schedule). It will run from 9:00 until 11:00 am in both wrestling rooms. Parents are welcome to watch. It's been a real blast in the past. Right now, we've got Riverside Brookfield coming with about 20 kids and two other clubs have been invited. This is open to anyone who wants to wrestle!!! Be in the field house at 8:45 on Saturday.

On Sunday, Dec 14th, we're going to split the squad. Kids with 2+ years of experience will be at Stagg and the 1st and Second year kids will be at Downers Grove South. Talk to coach Matt to make sure you're eligible to wrestle. We'll meet in the field house balcony at 6:30 and carpool there.

On Thursday, Dec 11, The High school will wrestle against Glenbard. That shouldn't impact our practice at all. We can have a full practice and still catch most of the meet. The wrestlers may want to stick around and watch the #1 rated Huskies pursue their second straight conference championship.

I got a little note from the photographer. Here's the important details:
