How one meeting changed the course of our season

I was going through our photos from this season and we’ve got a ton of awesome ones – thank you to our parents (especially Annette Meglino) and to Coach Marsh’s special lady friend, Sallee, for the great photography! (You can check them out here.)


And then I came across this one photo I’d forgotten about, but in retrospect really changed the course of our season. I’ll get back to that in a second, though. Continue reading

Panthers announce Post-Season Award Winners!

1chris1I’m fired up today to announce to you our 2016 Post-Season Award winners!

Obviously, as usual, we’ve had our share of guys who were honored for their competitive achievements (more on that in a second) but more importantly, at our recent banquet, we were able to give out our internal team awards.

A graduating senior’s thoughts on his wrestling career

I was fortunate enough to be able to watch most of the NCAA Wrestling Championships this weekend with our entire coaching staff at MSG.

If you’ve never seen it, you absolutely have to. It’s one of the purest sporting events you’ll ever see. No million dollar contracts waiting for these guys, no glory outside of the wrestling community – just 330 student-athletes who have worked incredibly hard most of their lives for a chance to reach their dreams.

Cliffton Wang – 3rd in NYS!

Just walked in the door after driving back from Albany and the NY State Championships. By this point, I’m sure most of you have seen how we fared on Facebook and Twitter. I’ll certainly be writing again to talk a bit more about that but right this second I felt I really needed to thank a lot of people for such a tremendous weekend and really didn’t want to wait!
