    IMG_1719Once again we loaded up the RV and headed south to scrap with some of the countries best in Virginia Beach, Virginia. In all we had 5 teams compete which included 3 high school, 1 middle school, 1 elementary team. Our flagship team was in the high school division, Elite-Gold which finished the weekend 5-2. The weekend is long, the competition is fierce and the venue is like none you’ve seen before. 50 mats down and busy with wrestling and some of the best talent from across the country.

    The wrestling weekend is an amazing experience for the kids, parents and coaches IMG_1667involved and its one of the events that we look forward to year after year. A special thank you to all the people that help me make this weekend happen. Most importantly I want to thank my coaches and their passion to support this trip like they do. If I didn’t have them we wouldn’t be able do this on this large scale and that would be a shame cause we impact many on this trip, So Thanks!

    Between Steve and Lisa Goebel there are close to 500 pictures to review. We tried our best to action shots of everyone on every team. Lisa’s Pictures , Steve’s Pictures on shutterfly.
