Sayville Wrestling Club will send the most participants out of any club in NYS to the Freestyle & Greco Roman USA Wrestling National Champions in Fargo, North Dakota in early July. (Sayville WC is currently ranked in the 14th in the U.S. by www.trackwrestling.com)
Coach Pesko will be one of 16 Coaches on staff for Team NY and will be with all of the Sayville WC athletes during the nearly 2 week timeframe. (Congratulations to Coach Pesko)
The tournament is held in the Fargo Dome on the campus at North Dakota State University and is attended by a Coach from every top Wrestling College & University in America. It is also the most attended Wrestling tournament in the World, some of the brackets have upwards of 80 wrestlers.
Team NY begins their campaign with a 1 week training camp in Johnson City, NY in preparation for the event. This provides an opportunity for all members of Sayville WC going to the tournament to train with the top wrestlers in NY while also being Coached by the best in the empire state.
Good thing Sayville WC purchased the extended passenger van, it is getting a lot of use. Where would we be without the Silver Bullet?
The tournament is from 7/18 thru 7/24.
