The Skyridge wrestling season starts on October 22. Wrestling is a great sport that promotes discipline, goal setting and the value of hard work. Students wrestle students of a similar size. Be a part of a team that works together to push each athlete to do their best. Practices are held from 3-5 PM every school day. The season consists of seven dual meets and two tournaments.
Participation requirements include a current physical (good for two years); completed parent authorization form, completed concussion form, and purchase of an ASB card and participation fee. All must be turned in at the Skyridge main office prior to participating.
Participants will need to bring shorts, a t-shirt and a water bottle to every practice.
Our Skyridge Girls Cross Country are league champions! With a perfect league record of 7-0 our team worked hard and pushed themselves throughout the entire season. The team motto has been “One Team, One Goal . . . 10-11-12!” which represents the date for Districts on October 11th. Great job Skyhawks!
