Good partners (and friends) in the wrestling room lead to success in competition. Congrats boys! We can't wait to watch you at TOC next week!
Congratulations to Nicholas Spotswood who took fourth in the 70 pound weight class at Regionals. This strong finish earned him a TOC qualification. He is one of our most improved wrestlers this year. His positive attitude and excellent technique has led to an impressive 6th grade folkstyle season. Congrats Nicholas! We are lucky to have you as a member of Team Alpha Dawg!
The Alpha Dawg coaches enjoyed a well-deserved dinner and relaxing evening tonight. They are in the middle of a busy and successful folkstyle season.

Congratulations to our little Dawgs: Jordan, Orion and Nox! They traveled north to Orland to compete at the NorCal Elementary State Championships and brought home gold. Jordan beat an accomplished opponent 4-2 and went on to take first. Orion took first in the 76 pound weight class and second at 83's for an impressive 7-1 day. Nox defeated a tough wrestler from Oregon, took first and impressed Coach Dave with his cat-like reflexes. Great job Alpha kids. The future looks
