GSBT 2022

The 2022 Grant Schoen Beginners Tournament, held on Sunday, March 6th, 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 240 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.

There are many, many people to thank. First, thanks goes out to Tammy and Jeff Schoen for sharing their story and helping educate people on how to be “HeartSafe”.

Thanks also goes to all the Matdog, CHS and CUW Wrestling Teams and coaching staff for providing refs and score table workers. Thank you to all the experienced Matdogs and their family members (past and present) that showed up to support our 34 Matdog beginners that wrestled. It takes many people to make this work and you helped make this event a success. 

A special thanks to Jason Ipsarides, 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 and supporting the sport of wrestling!

Cedarburg vs Port

Thursday night was Youth Wrestling  Night and CHS Senior Night at the CHS wrestling meet against Port Washington.

The Cedarburg Matdogs took on the Port Washington Piranhas in exhibition matches prior to the varsity match. This was a great chance for the younger wrestlers to see what a high school match looks like. It was also fun to see former Matdogs wrestle at the high school level.

Jacob and Ben were the two CHS seniors being recognized, both former Matdogs, and both picked up a win for the Bulldogs.

Thanks to all who came out to support Cedarburg wrestling.
