Reflections at Wrestling Season’s End

Michele Weldon | February 27, 2011

An entire week plus has passed since the IHSA finals in Champaign, Illinois where I was proud to be part of the Huskies Wrestling Family and witnessing a lot of parents, coaches, family and friends cheering and inspiring the wrestlers they came to support from all over the state. When my friends and sisters ask me why I spent the weekend in Champiagn when Colin wasn’t competing, I can’t explain it fully. They just don’t understand the concept of the Wrestling Family. Perhaps you do.


Brother, brother, brother
