Gilpin County Elementary had a tough group of wrestlers this year. This year there were four coaches Clinton Wenholz, Joe Stranaly, Royce McLain, and Peter Morgan and they had 23 students in grades 1st – 5th who participated in the Pee-Wee Wrestling program. They started the program six weeks ago and had to practice twice a week. During practices you could see and hear them running around the school, once of the wrestlers said his favorite part was getting the run through the halls. Something most elementary students don’t get to experience. The wrestlers learned new techniques and had lots of practice matches in order to get ready for their tournament.
