Youth Update; Tournament Time

The youth program had a good showing in St. Charles on Saturday.  The youth senior team took 1st place and the junior team went 1-2 on the day.  A great experience for our young guys.

A reminder that tomorrow night is our 100 takedown fundraiser.  Let’s try to reach our goal to earn the pizza party and chance to see Coach Krier on roller skates!

Congrats to the JV team for winning the HVL JV tournament in Lake City Saturday.  Go cheer on the varsity this week to keep the momentum going.

  • Monday: Youth practice.  PreK thru 3rd from 5:30 to 6:30.  4th thru 6th from 6:30 to 7:30.  We will be doing 100 takedowns.
  • Thursday: Tournament time!  Go watch as the opening rounds of varsity team duals begin.  Exact seeds are not known yet, but expect a Cougars dual in Mazeppa around 7 PM.
  • Saturday:  Section semi-final and championship varsity team duals at Mayo Civic Center.  Section 1A semi-finals start at 12:30.  A great atmosphere to watch wrestling.
  • Sunday, February 16: Youth Open in Ellsworth.  USA card required and available on-site.


Opportunity to Attend #3 Gophers vs. #1 Penn State Sunday

The Rochester Panther Wrestling Club has extra tickets for this Sunday’s MN vs PSU wrestling match at the U of M, and are wondering if any ZM wrestling families would be interested in attending.  They have chartered two buses and have around 20 extra tickets.  The price is $10 per ticket with a $30 per family max.  That includes entry into the match and transportation on the bus.  Match starts at 1:00 PM.  Given that Zumbrota is on their way, they are glad to arrange for a Zumbrota pick up at a local off-the-highway location.  Or if you prefer to drive separately, it would be fine to just purchase a ticket.

The tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  If you are interested, please contact either Mark Krier (507-254-5320) or Chris Lexvold (507-273-6495).

Good luck to everyone wrestling this weekend!
