This Week in Lincoln Wrestling

All season with the high school program we work toward peeking at the regional tournament and I can honestly report that we did peak at the right time.  Our kids went out and competed in each and every match and showed so much heart and improvement at the 321A Russell Regional!  Freshman  Jonathan Ahring (106) along with seniors Rocky Krueger (120) and Dalton Junek (152) were all one match away from qualifying for state but lost in the consolations semifinals, otherwise know as the "bloodround".  Our two other wrestlers competing at the regional meet were sophomore Nate Feldkamp (285) and senior team captian, Kyle Cavalli (170).

We can not express how much our seniors mean to us and to our program.  They will forever be leopard wrestlers!

The junior high program continued its competition by traveling to Beloit last Thursday to face Beloit, Ellsworth, and Republic Co, then returned to Beloit on Monday to compete against grapplers from Beloit, Southeast of Saline, and Bennington.  The best way to describe this group of energetic young wrestlers is the "Blue Wave" as our numbers are fantastic with fifteen kids out and our kids continue to find a tremendous amount of success on the mat.  Even better, our kids continue to have a very coachable spirit and are improving with each practice and competition.

The junior high season will be completing it's season this coming week with matches on Monday, Thursday, and Friday.

March 2 @ Smoky Valley  4:30 pm
March 5 @ Southeast of Saline 4:30pm
March 6 @ Minneapolis 4:30 pm

The focus for this week is "Be Reliable".  As we work toward "Living A Championship Lifestyle" we know that it is important to let people know that we can stand up and be counted as people who can be trusted to do what we have committed to.

This has been a great season so far and I want to thank you for continuing to support our program!  Have a fantastic weekend.
