A couple of summers ago the initial conversations started about forming a youth league in Rochester for wrestling. Penfield's, Mike Liess was at the front of developing the league and took on a lot of work to see this thing through. Last year was the inaugural season and it was a huge success; this year the number of teams participating more than doubled. Today, posted on Armdrag there is an article out of Section II stating how that area is now doing the same thing based on a model from what Mike Liess has done. Our sport thanks you Mike on a job well done!!

Folks can find the schedule on the grywl website if they want to check out some of the duals. The kids have a BLAST. They get to feel the team sense of the sport and really boost up the kids who may lose a match.

Thank-you Coach Liess for promoting the sport among the next generation. That's how we're going to see the sport continue, and hopefully to prosper. And, thank-you to those who are involved with this effort.
