We have a JV festival on Wednesday @ 5:30 PM with Northwest and Rockwall. After Wednesday, there will be no required FMHS practice for the JV outside the school day until school resumes after the holidays. HOWEVER, if your son chooses to forego practice for two weeks, he can plan to take a beating for a couple of weeks when he gets back from the break!
I strongly urge all wrestlers, varsity and JV, to practice with the Spartan Mat Club on Dec. 26-28th and Jan. 2-4th at 6:00-8:30 PM in our FMHS Mat Room. I would also strongly encourage the JV to participate in the mandatory varsity practices Jan. 1 – 4th from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM. If for whatever reason he cannot get to practice, he should plan to spend about 1 hour each day engaged in physical training that includes at least 20 – 30 minutes of intense cardio work as well as strength training.
The boys will be expected to work the JV festival this Wednesday. They will probably be finished about 8:00 PM.
We have our last tournament of this year at Allen HS this Friday and Saturday. The schedule Friday is: Leave at 6:00 AM, Weigh-in at 7:00, Wrestle from 9:00 – 8:00 PM.
Saturday’s schedule is: Leave @ 7:00 AM, Weigh-in at 8:00 AM, Wrestle from 9:30 – 8:00 PM. The tournament field includes five states, and the format is exactly like M.A.N., so each of our boys will get four or five matches Friday.
After Saturday, the varsity boys are on Holiday Break until 2018! Practice is required on Jan. 1, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM. We are at the Grapevine Duals on Jan. 5 – 6. The format at Grapevine includes ten duals in two days! Imagine the kind of physical stamina that will require!
So, I strongly suggest that the boys practice with the Spartan Club on Dec. 25th, 27th, and Jan. 1st, 3rd at 6:30 PM. On days without organized practice, I would recommend at least 1 hour of physical training that includes at least 20 – 30 minutes of intense cardio work as well as strength training.
