July 11-13 Mini-Camp

Thank you to Sean Ahrar of St. Olaf College for doing three nights of camp with us!  Sean showed technique, explained expectations of college wrestling, and shared many example of how a quality high school and college education can help a person succeed in life. Sean also has many years of military experience and shared with us some of those adventures.  It was a very successful week and we hope to have Sean back again!

And a HUGE thank you goes out to Donnie Dahl for cooking our boys supper on the last night of camp last week!  Donnie not only donated his time, but he also brought his own smoker and many supplies to complete the job!  The chicken was amazing!  They boys also enjoyed yogurt and fresh fruit!  It was a beautiful evening to hang out!
