Recap of our Gladiator Summer events:

  • Great weather and good food for our Gladiator annual summer picnic!!!  Those that attended really enjoyed the beach and water with Gladiator family!
  • We had an awesome turn out for the Pioneer Days parade and our Gladiator Float won 1st prize!!!  We overwhelmed the judges with the amount of energy and excitement our little wrestlers had for that 20 block walk.  Or they were just afraid of flying candy!  Nice job Gladiator wrestlers and the parents who decorated and prepared everything!!
  • We had a good turnout for our Saints Youth Summer Wrestllng camp!!!  Thanks to coaches Lang, Pederson and Lorenzen for putting that on for us!
  • Several wrestlers are taking advantage of Coach Tony's private lessons.
  • Some Gladiators went to an outdoor Summer Slam tourney with Coach Pederson down in Litchfield and had a fun time.
