Note From Coach Pittman

A note from Coach PittmanTo all Peninsula Wrestling Club fans, followers and supporters, we need your help!

Last year Peninsula wrestling took 64 people to the Western Regionals Wrestling Tournament in Pocatello Idaho for 8 days. This year our goal is to take 100 people to the same tournament, in Pocatello Idaho. This takes lots of organization and money, about $15,000 for 8 days.

This is why coach Pittman is asking for your help.

  • It takes a special person like you to understand the challenges facing America’s youth;  to appreciate the heartache of facing the future that suddenly seems empty of hope and promise.
  • It takes a special person to lend a hand when it is so easy to look the other way.
  • Your support means more than you can imagine to our program, it means hope for a complete fulfilling year for our youth.
  • Your support restores the hope and promise that once seemed so far away, any amount you can give will help.

Day 5 By Spencer Barnett

Today was a very tense day! We only have a few kids left in Greco.
I made it four rounds wrestling and losing to the #1 kid I did my best today
and I think that our team did very well today. Tomorrow will be a brand new day
and freestyle is coming up. I have made many new friends from many different
states like California, Arizona and Hawaii.

Day 5 By Aaron Blaine

 

June 22nd
Today I awoke at 5:45 and got ready. My mom washed some clothes for me. 🙂 I put on some clothes and went downstairs to eat. The food was gross :P. I then went to my mom’s room and brushed my teeth. I came up and got my bag and went downstairs. When I got to the stadium I warmed up. Today was Greco babe!! :D. My First match I wrestled Josh Reyes from Cobra, he beat me with shoulder throws. It hurt a lot! 🙁 The second match I wrestled I tried some stupid arm throw and got caught. I lost the first round and had to win the next two. 😀 I did. The third match I wrestled someone from Utah. I won the first round by tech. Then my shoulder started giving out and I couldn’t drag or anything. It sucked. After that match was over I was angry. I went outside to cool off. It helped because it was raining. Then after awhile dinner came around. It was chicken and rice. Probably my favorite dinner so far. 😉 Then we went to the hotel and went to the meeting :). After the meeting was over I went to my mom’s room to ask if she could do some laundry for me. She wouldn’t :P. So I got my cloths together and I will wash some tomorrow. Hope tomorrow is better.

Day 4 By Skyler Scott

Tuesday,

Today was fun watching the cadets! I learned a lot of things, like the good wrestlers that everyone thinks are world beaters don’t do fansey stuff.

Good wrestlers are mentaly tuff, stay in good position, move, and don’t make mistakes.
