We have posted over 2 decades of photos (year by year) - check it out to see all the great memories. Also we are throwing in some old wildcat videos - a " historical flashback" Check them out on our team facebook page - a little fun for our alumni and motivation for the future Wildcats! Go Cats!!
Don't get bored or tired in your routine - go back to the begining
When routine starts to get tiring - go back to the beginning. Find your motivation and check your goals.
Step 1 Find your motivation again - Think about that match you lost, the goal you wanted but didn't achieve, the thing that really pushes you when things get tough.
Step 2 - Revisit your goals - what do you want? A varsity spot?, a winning record?, a state place? to be a champ?
Step 3 - Don't try to be other people. It's fun to read motivational quotes and watch motivational videos, but if you don't connect with something in your own head they are pointless.
"It has to come from within" - Don't Forget the best motivation is right in your own head you just have to find it
Stay strong, Stay working, stay ahead of your opponents!
Advice for keeping Motivated during the Quarantine
1) Start a Daily Routine - use the week as work days and the weekends for rest. Set up a daily routine for school work, workouts, eating etc... A routine can help you stay physically and mentally on track
2) Goals - have goals during this time to stay focused.
3) Be consistent - stay on our routine. Do you workouts everyday don't skip
4) Eat Right / Sleep right - you can still snack, not time to cut weight but make sure you are eating right and getting enough sleep. Nothing can throw your body off quicker.
5) Stay in Contact with teammates - teammates can keep each other on track and help push each other. Teammates are going through the same things - by phone or social media - stay in touch!
Next Level Club Closed - Info and Event schedules
The Spring Session of the next level club is currently closed as all schools and facilities have been shut down due to the current health crisis. All info and schedules will be updated and soon as any new information is made available. We are holding out positive hope that the summer session will be able run as scheduled.

Final Equipment Turn in and Locker Clean out

For all Parents/family we will be putting out an equipment and clothing box next week. This is a box in the locker room that wrestlers can donate old shoes, clothes, equipment, or any wrestling gear that they have outgrown or won't use anymore. We clean everything and add it to the wrestling room for all the wrestlers to use in the future. If you ask the wrestlers - this is a major resource that all the team use. So please if you are able to donate anything please send it in! We appreciate the help.

The cats started in 1975 and went until 1985 where the cats team was lost for a year (due to lack of coaches). Charlie Dodge restarted the program in 1986 and he and Coach Seemiller helped the team rise to a power in the state of VA. For more info on the history click on the history and hall of Fame links!
