Vashon’s youth wrestling program, the Rockbusters, took three kids to the PCJWL League tournament. Two of those kids placed, one second and the other third. Practices continue for kids participating in the State Tournament: more information at the Washington State Wrestling site. Practices will be Monday and Wednesday from 5 – 6 at the high school wrestling room. The middle school kids will be practicing at the same time, so the Rockbusters are welcome to stay until 6:30 if they choose.
The Rockbusters are catching the 6:20 ferry from Tahlequah tomorrow morning. Only the best wrestlers in the Pierce County Junior Wrestling League are still competing. We will be at Yelm Middle School: 402 W Yelm Ave. Weigh-ins are from 7:00 AM to 8:30 AM.
Eleven Rockbusters participated in the 2B sub-division tournament in Sumner on January 16th. The top four finishers move on to the Division tournament. The Vashon Rockbusters sent eight of their wrestlers on, including three champions: Colin McIntyre, Ryan Nelson, and McKenzie Walker.
The Rising Star tournament is for first and second year wrestlers only. It is a fun tournament where the newer wrestlers get a chance to show off what they have learned during the season. All wrestlers get medals. This tournament is not covered by the Rockbusters club, so bring $15 as entry fee for your wrestler and $2 for individual parents or $5 for families.
The event takes place at Cedar Heights Middle School:
19646 se 272nd st Covington Wa. 98042
Weigh ins are from 7:00 AM to 8:30 AM and wrestling starts at 10:00 AM.
We will have only one practice this week, Wednesday, from 6PM to around 7PM. Also, check out The Rock tournament on Tuesday. There will be some great high school wrestling in the gym.
Wrestling practices will be combined this week. Everyone will attend Monday and Wednesday practices from 6 – 7 and there will be no Tuesday or Thursday practices. Merry Christmas everyone.
The Vashon Rockbusters visited Montesano to wrestle three duals on Saturday, December 12th. We brought a small team, but we made up for it in skill, notching a large number of wins that point towards a solid showing at sub-divisions.
