Our Youth Team (Pre-K to 6th Grade) competed hard at Sunday’s The ‘BRAWL’ in STMA!
A big ‘THANK YOU’ to all parents and youth coaches who had us weighed-in and prepared at 7:45AM in St. Michael Albertville HS on Sunday Jan 24th for the ‘BRAWL’ ! Boy-O-Boy are we blessed with some ‘scrapper wrestlers’ and supper supportive parents in our Farmington Youth Wrestling Program. This year was a learning curve at the BRAWL, as our youth wrestlers positioned their selves with wrestling hard and great effort as we wrestled 5 good youth programs, in the end we had a 1-4 record at Sunday’s youth duel meets. As we continue to improve as a youth team and program, we expect great things from our youth wrestlers. A big ‘Thank You’ to Coach Sam Sand as he continually teaches our young wrestlers to improve and always show a respectable TIGER sportsmenship on the mat!
