Tournament season is almost upon us! While this is an exciting time of year, it is important to always remember it is not just about wins and losses, trophies and medals. At this age, it’s about applying what we’ve been teaching in practice, challenging oneself and growing as a wrestler and a person.

As a reminder - Anyone who wants to wrestle this weekend must RSVP as “going” in TeamSnap by TONIGHT. Tuesday morning invoices will go out and they will need to be paid by Wednesday at 5 PM as we need to submit our rosters at that time. Let us know if you have any questions or if you don’t receive an invoice.

The Lakeland Predators brought it today at the 2019 USA Wrestling Winter Nationals! Lila Carson won her first championship at a national tournament (6U) going 5-0, Grady Glowacki was the national runner-up (8U) going 4-1 fighting all the way back to earn true 2nd place. Owen Covey went 2-2 losing a heart breaker in the blood round and just missed All-American status. Johnny Carson also wrestled tough and won some matches but also fell a little short of earning All-American

Northwestern Wrestling

Due to a last minute cancellation, we have 4 tickets available to Northwestern vs Northern Iowa dual tonight at 5:00 at the Welsh Ryan Arena- only $4! Please let us know if you want them ASAP as we already paid for them.

This will be a great time as we will have a large group (40+) going to cheer on former Lakeland Predator and Antioch High School State Champion Pat Schoenfelder. This is also a great opportunity for the kids to see what high level wrestling looks like from some of the best wrestlers in the country.

The ‘Cats are back at home TOMORROW!

While you wait, a look back at the last time they were on the mats at the Welsh-Ryan Arena.

With a focus on sportsmanship- we teach kids to wrestle, work hard, and have fun while providing competitive opportunities for both inexperienced and experienced wrestlers. We are members of the Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation and our club members are carded by USA Wrestling.
