and their services are greatly appreciated! Please take a minute and read about what we do below.
Complete accuracy is required and a statistician must be confident in her performance in case a discrepancy in the score occurs. Professional and highly qualified, our statisticians are well respected wherever we compete, including Assembly Hall. The ability to keep an accurate official scorebook is not just one of the most important tasks of a statistician; but also the #1 asset of every successful coach. We were very fortunate to have the BEST group of ladies in the State last year!
Our statisticians all work hard and their diligence is appreciated by all the wrestlers, coaches, fans, and officials. The responsibilities of a statistician sometimes seem never ending. In addition to keeping the book, our ladies can also be found working in the concession stand, selling T-shirts, and setting up the gym for meets & tournaments. Good sportsmanship, leadership, adaptability, and a willingness to cooperate are all among the qualities of this year's group of statisticians! When you have a chance, be sure to thank our statisticians for all that they do.

Who be the next wrestler to place at the State Finals?
Who will be our Next State Champion?
"Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a Desire, a Dream, and a Vision. They have to have last minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the Skill and the Will. But the Will must be stronger than the Skill."
We were really excited about this year, we had a young squad last year with a lot of heart, pride, and character. It was a nice mix of young talent and experience; this year only promises to be better! Despite the shortened season last year, our season was jam packed. One Huge Accomplishment this year was we had 2 more State Qualifiers, and siblings at that. Curtis and Catherine Steinkamp both Qualified, and Catherine Placed 5th at the State Tournament! We are beyond excited and proud of their accomplishments. Last year, the IHSA added a girls only State Tournament Series. We're looking forward to continue to move forward and build upon our success! Keep referring back to us and stay Healthy & Safe!
