CFWC Weekly Update 2/13/2019

We had 6 wrestlers compete in the West Delaware Little Hawk tourney this past weekend. We have done a great job hitting as many tournament we can this season but they are slowing coming to an end in these next few weeks. 

This weekend's participants, take minute next time you see them to congratulate them for their hard work!

Liam Wiechmann PK-K (Runner-Up)

Owen Iverson PK-K (Champion)

Gunner Emery 1-2 (Runner-Up)

Landon Wiechman 1-2

DaShadd Wright 3-4

Aiden Williams 3-4 (Runner-Up)

We were scheduled to take tomorrow off due to Coach Peter and myself being at the IHSAA State Wrestling Championships starting this afternoon. Due to the CFWC missing so many practices because of winter weather we are going to take advantage of the opportunity. Coach Wiechmann will be holding a combined PK-8th CFWC practice tomorrow Thursday 2/14 from 6:15-7:15pm @ the HS. Parents helpers and other coaches, since we will have HS coaches at state, we as a staff ask if you can be there to help Coach Wiechmann out that would be great!   

Sunday 2/17/2019- TWE Wrestling Tourney, South Tama HS.

There is a PK-8th tourney this Sunday, 2/17 that you are all welcome to attend. We will not be sending coaches at this point but you can still wrestle to get one more in before the regular season ends! It is at South Tama HS, it is a USA Wrestling sanctioned event. You will need a USA card to wrestle in this tourney, here is how you get a USA card. You may want to purchase a multi year card because I foresee a lot of the CFWC team competing in the USA Iowa State Championships next January.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns,

CFWC Weekly Update, Wednesday 2/6/2019

Good evening CFWC parents,

We have had a busy week in Cedar Falls Wrestling. This past Sunday we had 7 members of the CFWC battle to see if they could punch their ticket to this year's Iowa AAU Kids State Championships in Des Moines. Our district qualifier was held at Waverly Shell-Rock and consisted of some of the toughest 3rd-8th grade wrestlers in the state. Most of the guys who placed top 4 at this district will be on the podium in a few weeks down at the Wells in Des Moines. Please pat these guys on the back next time you see them for getting out there, wrestling hard, and trying to get to Des Moines!

Chase Miller 3/4th (DNP)

Maddox Curran 3/4th (DNP) 

Evan Simpson 5/6th (4TH)

Caysen Curran 5/6th (5TH)

Caiden Rentz 7/8th (DNP)

Drew Campbell 7/8th (6th) 

Ty Kolthoff 7/8th (5th)

Evan Simpson, who attends the CFWC as well as some other clubs in the area, was the only wrestler from the CFWC to get out of the district qualifier this year . He’ll get the chance to wrestle at the State Championships here in a few weeks at the Wells Fargo Arena. We had three more wrestlers Caysen Curran, Drew Campbell, and Ty Kolthoff who were 1 match away from taking the trip. Evan, as well as all of the other wrestlers, had several competitive and tough matches this weekend and even though the rest were unable to place top 4 they were able to go out and battle to see what they need to do to take the trip to the Wells next season. We return all but 1 to the CFWC next year and I promise, if we can continue to get better like we have this season, a few of them and others in the CFWC will be taking a trip to Des Moines!    

This Week:

Regular practice tomorrow, Thursday 2/7, with the 2 separate groups PK-4th (6-7) and 5-8th (7:15-8:30). Please stay with the same groups you have been going to this season. If the weather keeps up please check your emails, twitter, or our Facebook page for any CFWC cancellations. Remember we will have practice whenever we can, please know if there are ever any school cancellations and we do open the room it is an optional practice for those who feel they can get their wrestlers to the practice safely. We are always watching and tracking possible weather and wrestler and parent safety is our number one concern in the CFWC. 

Sunday, 2/10- Manchester / West Delaware Little Hawk Tourney

We already have several CFWC wrestlers signed up for this tourney. Please let me know if you plan to attend so we can plan for coaches. Sign up under Cedar Falls Wrestling Club, the full name, if you have not already . If you have already signed up under CFWC, you can change during weigh -ins. Let me know if you have any questions.

This Week at the CFWC....

There will be No CFWC Practice tomorrow, Tuesday 1/29, due to the extreme cold and inclement weather. The Cedar Falls HS Wrestling team has their final conference dual of the season this Thursday if the weather cooperates. If there is a dual there will be NO CFWC practice on Thursday 1/30 either, come out to support the CFWC's big brothers for Senior night. If the dual is cancelled due to Cedar Rapids schools not having school but Cedar Falls does we will have regular scheduled practice for both CFWC groups. I will send out an update Wednesday night with confirmation. 

Possible make up practices for AAU district qualifier participants- We are looking at either Friday 1/31 @ 6pm and/ or Saturday @ 4pm as we prepare for the tournament on Sunday.

Sunday, 2/3/19 Iowa AAU District Qualifier @ Waverly-

We'd like to see all wrestlers with 3-8th grade wrestlers with a couple years experience compete in the AAU District Qualifier this weekend. This is the tournament you practice all season for. Although this is just the 2nd year of the CFWC I see more and more members that are beginning to compete at this level. We may not run the table but we will be able to compete and see what we need to do to get better year by year to take that trip down to Des Moines in the next few years. Top 4 placers at AAU Districts qualify for the State Tourney.
