Schedule for the week

Tentative schedule for winter break

This Friday all levels will compete at BHS against Schaumburg.  Let’s cheer on our wrestlers with a Black out theme- wear your black BHS spirit wear.

At our home meet on January 11, we will be honoring seniors as well as teachers. Senior parents please mark your calendar to be there on January 11.   

Please see the info below from Julie Dillon regarding teacher appreciation night.

On Monday night (tomorrow)  the wrestlers will be given a form to complete and deliver to a teacher that they would like to celebrate at Teacher Appreciation Night on January 11.  This is an annual event that Barrington Wrestling hosts in acknowledgement of the incredible teachers that teach and support our wrestlers throughout the year. 

On the form, the wrestler will write their name as the person who has nominated the teacher, the teacher's name, and they will deliver it to that teacher on either Tues or Weds.  Teachers will be responding to me with their shirt size so we can provide them with a special shirt to wear to the event.  

In January, wrestlers will be delivering shirts to the teacher and having another wrestler or classmate take a photo of them with that teacher and the shirt.  Last year we sometimes had as many as four wrestlers celebrate the same teacher, so the wrestlers coordinated delivery before school/after school.  Those photos will also be emailed to me.

During Teacher Appreciation Night Coach Hoeving had the photos looping on the big screen for everyone to see.  It was a fabulous video and many of the teachers took photos under the screen.  

This is a big deal for our teachers and wrestlers.  It's an awesome opportunity to give back to the teachers that do so much for our kids. 

Some important reminders…

Noah Glazov and Marco Fernandez have been taking pictures of the wrestlers at tournaments.  You can see all of the photos at 2023-24 BHS Wrestling

Varsity parents going to the Cheesehead Tournament have until this Friday to reserve a room with the room block discount. Contact Lauren Dorn (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with any questions

There was some confusion last week with the food that Mat Club will be providing.  Moving forward the plan is to provide Subway sandwiches for all weekday meets.   On Saturdays each group will have a variety of dry snacks and fruits.  There will also be water and gatorade provided but it is recommended that wrestlers bring their own as well.  

If you ordered a Coach Dunn T-shirt and have not picked it up yet, please get in touch with Sharon Whitaker 847-417-7241

Have a great week!
