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!
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.
