Well, season ended. Just. Like. That. Seriously, I was completely unprepared! Many a week nights I got in the car to pick Jack up from practice — to realize there was no practice!
I should probably rephrase the above statement. Season is over for most of our wrestlers; while others journeyed to NCS Championships in Newark. Photos of this amazing event are here.
We didn’t attend but I hear it was an incredible experience. Here’s a great photo of Jacob and Ian, our NCS wrestling medalists.
Ian now heads to CIF State Championships March 7 and 8 at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield. Go Ian!!!!
Want to watch the championships live without traveling? Well, here ‘ya go — a live stream. I know, I’m awesome.
According to the CIF site the streaming schedule is as follows:
Saturday, March 8 the Semi-Finals will be lived streamed beginning at 9:30am
Saturday, March 8 the Championship Finals will be lived streamed beginning at 7:15pm
Now, let’s give a big shout out to Coach Scott Weidemier. Why? No, not because I’m kissing up! Seriously! Ok, maybe a little.
Actually, I think it’s kind of a big deal that our Coach Scott received the North Coast Section Honor Coach Award at the NCS Championships February 28.
No joke!! And there has been little attention given to this honor. To rectify this oversight I am shouting it out to y’all — our Coach Scott is the bomb! And he has the award (in a very nice frame) to prove it.
Weidemier was recognized as the North Coast Section’s Honor Coach of the Year prior to the start of the finals.
“I’m really honored and incredibly humbled,” Weidemier said. “I’m a little flabbergasted. It really is a big honor.”

Well, we’re pretty proud of you, Coach Scott.
Finally, Jack and I decided the coaching staff was going to have some kind of medical injury if they kept screaming like that from the sidelines. So, we searched and searched for the perfect gift that would help save them in the future. Jack and I purchased one of these for each coach. Not kidding. I have the receipt if you would like to see it. I am going to buy one for myself — you know, to holler “SSSQQQUUUEEEZZZEEE!”
Happy off-season to you all. Unless you’re doing club…
Next up…. ballet recital. It’s going to be fuuuuunnnn! I’ll teach you how to make a perfect ballet bun!
