SPORTSLEADER THIS WEEK: TENACITY
This week’s prayer services focused on the how tenacity in wrestling means being unbreakable and aggressive. We looked at a quote from Dan Gable and some videos of Gable and Iowa wrestling. Coaches also shared matches that exemplified the virtue of tenacity. To view the presentation, please go to: Tenacity Presentation.
Thanks to Coach Hill and Coach Dever for their efforts putting together the prayer services each week!
SPIRIT T-SHIRTS FOR STATE DUALS
Alex Frueauf is having some t-shirts made (link to design) to show some spirit during the state duals and state individual tournaments. The shirts will have "Moeller Wrestling" in blue lettering with the fighting crusader in the middle, then on the back it will have the Marianist cross in the middle of the neck. The shirts are Gildan, 100% cotton, gold colored (bright yellow-the color is shown on the attachment), and long sleeved. They are $15 each. They will be completed within 7 to 10 days of the time the order is placed. They should be ready for the first round of the dual tournament (definitely for the second round). Sizes available are Adult Small, Medium, Large, X Large, XX Large, and XXX Large. If interested please send a note to Alex @ email@example.com. He would like to place the order by Tuesday or Wednesday.
