GSBT 2019

The 2019 Grant Schoen Beginners Tournament, held on Sunday, Feb. 10th, 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 235 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 33 Matdog beginners that wrestled. Not only for showing up, but were flexible and pitched in where needed, whether it be table workers, towel throwers, bracket hangers, concession workers or being part of the set-up/clean-up crew. 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!

Thank you to the 2019 Grant Schoen Beginners Tournament sponsors for their generous donations and support: Aurora Medical Center Grafton Medical Staff, Master Printwear, Cedar Crest Ice Cream, Defense Soap, Olsen’s Piggly Wiggly, Firehouse Subs, Sal’s Pizza and Mike and Laura Boerner. 

Last but not least, thank you to our 2019 Season Sponsors:
Weimer Bearing & Transmission, Inc., Gen-Met, Midwest Refrigerated Services, SportClips of Mequon, Sharon Cutwell, Ascedia, ISCorp, DQ and Sal’s.
