Boys Junior Varsity Wrestling, Boys Varsity Wrestling · Wrestling Newsletter for Week of 12/3/2018-12/8/2018

Wrestling Family, please read this week’s newsletter.  It has information about this Wednesday’s JV Match at North Cobb Christian School, Friday/Saturday’s 2-day JV Tournament at Marietta HS and our Varsity Tournament this Saturday at Pepperell HS.  Thanks to everyone for the support!!!

Tournament Re-Cap of Cedartown Duals


We are so proud of the way our Varsity Team wrestled this past Saturday at Cedartown!!!  The boys went 4-1 at the tournament defeating Cedartown, Rockmart, McIntosh, and Landmark Christian.  We lost to LaFayette 39-34, but we saw several wrestlers demonstrate improvement from the last time we wrestled LaFayette and defeat wrestlers they had lost to earlier in the season.  Great Job Guys!!!

Defeating Cedartown was a big deal, as they are in our Region and this victory will help secure a higher seed in the Region 5-AAAA Duals Championship in January.  It was also good for the individual wrestlers that defeated their Cedartown Opponents as it will give them individual seeding criteria over them in the Region 5-AAAA Traditional Championships at the end of January.  We are proud that the wrestlers took advantage of this opportunity and performed at a very high level.  We are looking forward to seeing more improvement as the season continues!!!  Keep up the hard work everyone!!!



Upcoming Events this week:

Monday 12/3/2018

  • Varsity/JV Practice 4:15 PM – 6:15 PM
  • Women’s Practice 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Tuesday 12/4/2018

Wenesday 12/5/2018

The JV will be wrestling in a scramble-style event on Wednesday 12/5/2018.

I have submitted the following wrestlers to compete in this event: Joshua A, Mohammed K, Luis B, Chris L, Connor M, Camden M, Trent D, Muhammad R, Lyle F, Zafna A, Nate E, Jeffery H, Alex O, Francisco O, Shadre H, Tytan G, Juan B, Phil R, and Jay C.

There are 4 other teams coming to this event, however they are not all full teams.  This will not be a dual format, we are just going to get match-ups with as many other wrestlers as we can according to weight.  I cannot guarantee that everyone will get a match, but that is our intention.  It just depends on how many wrestlers the other teams bring and what weights those wrestlers are.

The wrestlers listed above will need to get their wrestling gear and load the bus in front of the Storm Center IMMEDIATELY after school.  The bus will leave at 4:00 heading to North Cobb Christian School.  Weigh-Ins will be when we get there, then wrestling is scheduled to start at 5:00 PM.  Their coach has indicated that we should wrap up sometime around 7:30 PM, which should put us getting back to the Storm Center at an estimated 8:00 PM.  We will send out a remind message letting everyone know a more specific time before we leave North Cobb Christian School heading back.

Friday 12/7/2018

  • Varsity Practice 4:15 PM – 6:15 PM
  • JV Blue Devil Invitational @ Marietta HS

This is a traditional (individual) tournament for the JV Team.  This is a HUGE Tournament with 25 schools attending and some bringing multiple wrestlers per weight class.  I will let the boys know which wrestlers will be going to this Friday/Saturday Tournament in Marietta later this week after challenge matches take place.  We will be leaving immediately after school on Friday from the Storm Center @ 4:00 PM.  We will wrestle very late Friday night, and I estimate we will return to CHS sometime between 11:00 PM and 12:00 midnight.  We will ask the boys to text/call their parents when we are leaving Marietta HS which should give you a 40 minute heads up to pick up your wrestlers from the Storm Center.  There may be some boys that are put out of the tournament on Friday by losing 2 matches…if this happens to them, they are not required to return on Saturday Morning.  If they do return Saturday Morning, they will have to make weight again on Saturday morning at their weight class + 1 pound growth allowance.  If they miss weight, they will forfeit their matches on Saturday.

Saturday 12/8/2018

Varsity Team will report to the Storm Center at 6:30 AM.  Bus will leave for Pepperell at 6:45 AM.  Any wrestler not wrestling in the JV Tournament will be traveling with the Varsity Team to Pepperell HS.  Weigh-Ins are scheduled for 7:30 AM and will be +1 pound.  Wrestling is scheduled to start by 9:30 AM, but could start earlier if all weigh-ins are completed.  There are 10 teams attending this tournament, so we will likely get 5 duals.  I would estimate time of completion sometime near 4:00 PM with us arriving back at the Storm Center sometime around 5:00 PM.  Please note that this is just an estimated time and may be sooner or later depending on how quickly we finish wrestling.  There will be a Remind Message sent out when we leave Pepperell HS heading back to the storm center that should give you a 45-minute heads up that we will be arriving back at CHS.

  • JV @ Blue Devil Invitational @ Marietta HS
    • 9:00 AM Start Wrestling – $5 Adult ; $3 Student Admission ($8 for 2-day pass)

This is Day 2 of the traditional (individual) tournament for the JV Team. The same wrestlers that wrestled on Friday at Marietta will be returning on Saturday to finish the tournament. The JV Team is expected to arrive at the Storm Center Saturday Morning at 6:45 AM.  We will be leaving from the Storm Center at 7:00 AM.  IMPORTANT – The boys will have to make weight again on Saturday Morning, but it will be +1 pounds to their weight class since they had to make weight on Friday as well.  If they miss their weight at weigh-in, they will forfeit their matches on Saturday.  I do not know if they will be wrestling any wrestle-backs on Friday night or not, but if your wrestler is eliminated from competition on Friday night, they will not be required to return to watch on Saturday.  If the wrestler is still in the tournament on Saturday, he is expected to be there.  I do not yet know what time the tournament will finish, so we will have to send that out in a remind as soon as we get the estimated time, and we will also send out a remind on Saturday before we leave heading back to the Storm Center.
