Attention Parents and Wrestlers,

Wrestling practice this afternoon will be cancelled and all students should go home on their bus at the end of the day.

If you were planning to deliver donations for the hospitality room this afternoon, then they can be delivered tomorrow. We are still planning to have practice from 3:00 - 5:00 PM tomorrow afternoon, which require parent pick-up.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you,
Marc LaRochelle

Attention Parents and Wrestlers,

The Parents Meeting has been rescheduled! Please keep an eye out for an email or update of the website for the new date and time. I apologize for the short notice and for any confusion this may have caused.

Members of the wrestling team received an informational sheet and flyer for the Spirit Wear online store. Students will need to order their Wrestling Spirit Pack (blue t-shirt, white t-shirt, and black shorts) for $35 total by January 31st. If students were members of the team last year and have their spirit wear, then they do not have to reorder.

The website for the online store is:

Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you,
Coach LaRochelle

To ensure the safety of students in the wrestling room and equitable opportunity for competition, the number of students making the team will be limited to 2-3 wrestlers per weight class.

Please make sure you can fulfill the time commitment for practices and meets if you are trying out. Wrestlers will be expected to purchase a pair of wrestling shoes and Wresting Spirit Pack ($35).
