The 2018 Grant Schoen Beginners Tournament, held on Sunday, Feb. 4th was a great success. We were able to honor the memory of Grant Schoen and raise awareness for HeartSafe Wisconsin. At the same time, we gave beginner wrestlers a chance to experience live wrestling in a tournament, some for the first time. Once wrestlers completed wrestling for the day, they received a finisher’s wristband and an ice cream treat, from Cedar Crest.

Thanks goes out to Tammy and Jeff Schoen, all the Matdog coaches and families (both past and present), CHS Wrestling Team coaching staff and all the other volunteer refs, table workers, towel throwers, concession workers and the set-up/clean-up crew that made this event successful. A special thanks goes out to Mason Baumgartner, a coach at Askren Wrestling Academy, for coming out and running a warm-up clinic with the wrestlers. Of course thanks goes out to all the wrestlers and their families for coming out on a snowy morning and supporting the sport of wrestling!
