Edgemont Grapplers receive Post-Season Honors

1911285_10151848163421923_422097603_o (1)There are fewer and fewer situations for adolescents in today’s complex world where there is a clear and direct correlation between sustained hard work and achievement.

For the student-athletes that make up the Edgemont Panther Wrestling Team, this is certainly NOT the case.

Wrestling is not an easy undertaking. It doesn’t come naturally for many and it takes a lot of time and effort to see appreciable results. While this goes “against the grain” for many, those that put in that effort and see those eventual accomplishments, earn far more than accolades.  They take with them one of the most fundamentally important lessons that will drive their successes for the rest of their lives:

“If you dream big, keep working hard and refuse to give up on yourself, you can accomplish anything.”

With the day-in and day-out grind of the wrestling season, the hard work is readily apparent – it’s the results that are sometimes hard to see.

That’s what makes our post-season so important. It’s a measuring stick for many. A chance to look back to where they were three months ago, twelve months ago or eight years ago and admire the view from a new height!

With that said, we’re proud to announce the post-season accolades received by this year’s Panther Wrestlers!
