Hello BHS wrestling families
It was a busy weekend!  11 of our varsity wrestlers fought hard at sectionals.    It was an exciting time to see 4 of our wrestlers qualify for IHSA wrestling state finals next week.   
Congratulations are in order for 
*Kaleb Pratt (106 lbs)
*Ryan Dorn (120 lbs)
*Jimmy Whitaker (126 lbs) 
      and our sectional champion 
*Rhenzo Augusto (150 lbs)
We also have 3 alternates that will be going - Daniel Blanke, Ayden Salley and Clarence Jackson.
They will be traveling to Champaign on Wednesday evening to compete against 15 other wrestlers in their brackets!  Good luck wrestlers!!
For any fans that want to attend the State finals, they are being held at the State Farm Center in Champaign starting on Thursday Feb 15.

Our sectional tournament was also a huge success for BHS.   Many other schools acknowledged how great of a job everyone did.

Thank you to ALL of the volunteers that made this such a successful event.   It was very appreciated!!
          --------------------------------------------------------------------
The schedule for this week will be 
Monday and Tuesday practice after school for all wrestlers.  
Wednesday morning before school  (Time TBD) state qualifiers will practice and then will leave for Champaign directly after school.   
A more detailed itinerary will be sent out separately.

For any freshman or sophomore parent that wants to get more information or form a committee for Frosh/Soph state, please respond back to this email and I will send a separate email to all those interested.    The link to the tournament is here.  Regionals are Sunday February 25 and you must register on your own since it is not an IHSA sponsored tournament.  It is a great opportunity for your wrestler to get more mat time.
          --------------------------------------------------------------------
The banquet information and RSVP doc was sent out last week.   Here is the link again.   The banquet will be held on Sunday March 17 at noon at the Onion Pub in Lake Barrington.   All wrestlers are free along with 1 family member.  All other family members are $20.   
Have a great week!
