First time since 1968
by Richard Uhlhorn


For the first time since 1968, the Chelan Wrestling Team is one step closer to their ultimate goal. On Friday and Saturday, February 1 and 2, the team won the Caribou Trail League District Championship. “We brought a big crowd to cheer on the nine finalists,” reported Coach Jay McGuffin.


“We had a real good week of practice… the intensity was high and the kids worked their butts off,” said McGuffin. “As a result we were able to bring home a trophy.”


“I really want to thank all the people that showed up to cheer us on. The team, my coaching staff and I really appreciate it.”


Chelan heads to Cashmere for the Regional Tournament this coming Friday night and Saturday, February 8 and 9. “We will have a good week of practice, work hard, and fix a couple of little things before the this coming weekend,” said McGuffin.
