Sick Nasty had a great weekend at the Freestyle and Greco State Tournament in Riverbend High School in Fredericksburg, VA this past weekend. Despite missing many key regulars, we were still able to pull out another top ten finish as a team in both greco and freestyle. Full results are listed below, but here are some highlights:
The Skyline High School Wrestling team performed great at Sherando’s Andrew Kenney Memorial Dual Tournament this Friday, December 8, 2017. The tournament is a two day format, but due to the 90% chance of snow on day two, the tournament was pushed to just one day. Our wrestlers were competing as late as midnight, but they did not let that become a weakness.
With Thanksgiving in a week and our first weigh-in coming in two weeks, now is a good time to review some important information regarding proper weight management. Over time I have been able to collect some great bits of information that will help wrestlers get to their lowest healthy weight class and still perform well. Those articles are listed at the bottom of this list. So let's review 7 great rules of weight cutting that I've learned from all of this research.
The parent meeting for Skyline Wrestling will take place on Wednesday, November 15th, in the Skyline auditorium. New parents and wrestlers must arrive at 6 PM and the meeting for the whole team will be at 7 PM. This meeting is mandatory as we will be discussing team expectations, weight management, concussion protocols, this season's schedule, and other important information.
Additionally, team pictures will take place immediately after school on Thursday, November 16th. Order forms will be available at the parent meeting.
The Skyline Wrestling Varsity schedule for the upcoming 2017-2018 season has been released.
