Congratulations Class AAA 195 pound State Champion Calvin Sund
The Laker Freestyle Club (LFC) has partnered again in 2020 with the Gopher Wrestling team in order to bring some of the top wrestling and coaching talent in the nation to our wrestling room for this Freestyle/Greco season. This year, current Gopher wrestler Brayton Lee and former Laker and Gopher, Rylee Streifel, will lead our Freestyle/Greco team! I'm also happy to announce that we again have Hayden Zillmer leading the Greco training. Hayden has numerous world team accolades and most recently won the 2019 Senior Nationals - US Olympic Trials Qualifier (97kg)! Our all-star coaches are excellent with the kids and outstanding Freestyle and Greco technicians. They will be coaching at practices, tournaments and at our dual meets.
We will be kicking off our season immediately following spring break with the first practice on Tuesday March 31st. We will have two mixed Freestyle/Greco sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and exclusively Greco Roman on Thursdays (6pm to 7:15 K-5 and 7:15- 8:30 MS/HS).
To ensure we have a strong selection of partners for live wrestling and drilling, we are offering spots in this program to wrestlers outside of Prior Lake and, as such, we would encourage our parents and wrestlers to invite others who you think might have interest. Please sign up at your earliest convenience.
Additionally, for a $10 nightly fee, we will allow non-registered wrestlers to take advantage of select sessions to get training from our awesome coaches. Currently Brayton Lee is planning on participating in Wednesday sessions, Hayden Zillmer will be primarily our Thursday Greco coach and Rylee will be coaching various nights to be announced weekly.
This year the state tournament will be in our back yard taking place at Shakopee HS. State is also a week earlier (May 2-3) so it won't conflict with Mothers Day or the MN Fishing Opener so we're hoping to get a big crew of Lakers participating. Additionally, the close proximity (Rochester, MN) of the Northern Plains (central nationals) tournament in May as well as the USA Nationals (Wisconsin Dells, WI) in June will hopefully encourage a large group to attend those as well to compete against kids throughout the country! If there is sufficient interest, practices may continue to help everyone prepare for USA Nationals and Fargo.
