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.

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.
