Deerfield Wrestling Nation and WWAF,

I wanted to take this time to congratulate everyone on the great seasons the Warrior Wrestling Nation has had. I know I can speak for every coach that it is an honor and a privilege to work with such a great group of kids. We really appreciate parent support and would like to see that continue to grow and prosper for the benefit of all the kids and the wrestling nation. Please support us in our various tournaments on all levels, our summer bar-b-q, and our golf outing in May (see attachment). Thank you to the WWAF board and all alumni. A huge thanks to our outstanding coaches on all levels. They are the difference. Much dedication and hard work goes into a successful season and great young men.

High School…

In what was supposed to be a rebuilding year after graduating 9 seniors the varsity continued to have great results and break records.

The Varsity and JV squads repeated as conference champs. The freshmen just missed repeating going 4-1 in conference despite forfeiting 4 weight classes. The varsity won it for the 5th straight year after having not won the conference since 1968. The varsity broke the win record they had just broke the year before. A great many wrestlers were responsible for this record breaking season as over-scheduling requires many wrestlers to step up to varsity and win.
