Friday Practice Time Shifted to 5:00

January 30, 2014 Leave a comment

Because we need to move one of the Wilton Youth Wrestling mats from the YMCA and because we’d like to set up for Saturday’s 6-way dual meet on Friday night, we’ve shifted practice to 5:00 PM.  We’ll help move the mats (thanks again to Mr. Fraccaroli and Mr. Kennedy!) at 5:00 and then run practice immediately afterwards.  Once practice is over, we’ll get the mats set up Friday night for Saturday morning’s event.

Please pass this info along to everyone who wasn’t at practice tomorrow.   Communicate any conflicts directly to Coach Foldeak please.  

And watch the video linked above the Virtual Refrigerator!

Wilton 33 – Ludlowe 39

January 29, 2014 Leave a comment

Senior Night’s results weren’t quite what we’d hoped for, but the Warriors managed to close the gap dramatically compared to the early season 51-27 loss to the Falcons up in Farmington earlier this season. Ludlowe is very tough at the lower weights, and the Warriors didn’t get on the board until Raphael Mettle, wrestling in his first varsity match, defeated his 145# opponent in an overtime decision. Senior Ken Pokora pinned his 160# rival, and then Dan Walter, also wrestling his first varsity match, pinned his 170# competition. Senior Dan Holland also pinned at 182#. And Jared Gladstein and Senior Joey Fraccaroli accepted forfeits at 195# and 285# respectively.

Thanks to all the parents, managers, fans and friends who came out to support the team tonight — especially to the parents of the senior wrestlers. We’re very grateful to have had you as long as we’ve had you — but we still have work to do, and it starts at practice tomorrow.

Our next home competition is at home on Saturday, February 1 at 9:00 AM. We’ll be hosting 5 teams in a 6-way dual meet competition. We look forward to seeing you all there, and hope you’ll be back to cheer the team on!

Some Changes & Updates to the Website’s Design.

January 26, 2014 Leave a comment

First, please take note of the “New Content or Links” area above the “Virtual Refrigerator” on the right. It’s another a way we can call attention to new content we’ve posted on the site.

Second, number of items on the Reference Pages made it harder to find information there, so we’ve made a new page out of each of the old sections. You can still find a particular item by using the site’s search feature.
