The youth wrestling season (boys and girls in PreK-6th grade) will be starting soon and we’d like you to join us! We hope to relay this information to as many ZM parents and youth as we can. Please help us out by sharing!
New to wrestling or looking to try it again? We are offering free clinics on Monday, November 15th in the Mazeppa school wrestling room. The girls only clinic will be at 5:30 PM, and anyone else at 6:30 PM. This practice provides the opportunity to learn more about the sport without any commitment. See this flyer for more details.
Register online through Community Education by November 17th to receive a t-shirt.
We’ll also hold an open house on Monday, November 8th and Tuesday, November 9th from 5:30 PM – 7:30. Swing by the Mazeppa school wrestling room before or after your parent-teacher conference to meet the coaches and learn more about the program. Don’t forget to bring your unwanted wrestling gear. Be sure to mark it with your name and asking price.
Finally, don’t forget clothing and gear orders close on October 31st. See this post for details.
Questions? E-mail Chris Lexvold- firstname.lastname@example.org
ZM Wrestling Clothing and Gear stores are open now until October 31st! Youth and high school orders will NOT be separate this year, so please place your orders now. There are 2 stores – one through Rebyl Sports for singlets, matching fight shorts and hoodies (high school singlets are provided by the school):
We have ordered singlets through this company in the past, and sizing runs very true to the sizing chart listed through Rebyl. In my experience, the fight shorts are generous in sizing (especially given the new trend of wearing shorter shorts). As a reference, all of my boys wear a size smaller than they typically do. Owen wears an adult XS, Cain a Medium, and Ryan a Medium (again, short shorts)! The brand is My House, a brand we have used in the past for singlets and warm-ups.
We are opening and closing the order before the season officially starts in an effort to get gear here in time for the majority of the season, and holidays as well. Cross your fingers!
As always, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have. Thanks, and GO COUGARS! Lacey Lexvold email@example.com
Due to weather, we are TENTATIVELY moving the ZM youth tournament from Friday night to Saturday night, same times. Tournament details. Please share! If something changes, we’ll be sure to let you know. Thank you!
Owen Lexvold and Maxwell Ramer have been active in the Olympic styles of wrestling this spring and summer. Owen participated in the MN/USA Freestyle and Greco State Tournament in May. He completed the MN/USA Triple Crown by winning Folkstyle, Freestyle, and Greco-Roman state titles.
The following week both Owen and Maxwell wrestled in the Northern Plains Regional Championships where wrestlers from 7 states come to compete. Owen placed 1st in both styles, and Maxwell placed 2nd in Greco (did not compete in Freestyle).
Last week the boys traveled to Wisconsin Dells to participate in the Kids Freestyle and Greco Nationals. Owen was able to come out on top in Greco-Roman and place 4th in Freestyle. Maxwell didn’t place in Greco but finished 8th in Freestyle.
We are very proud of these boys!
Upcoming Event: Mazeppa Parade on Friday, July 12. Youth wrestlers and High School state qualifiers meet at 6:45 in Lions Park.
