NAEW teamed up with Florence Youth Wrestling and Athens High School Wrestling to take a group of 25 wrestlers to Iowa this summer! These wrestlers completed five grueling days of drilling, live competition and some great team bonding via the Team Olympics. Our high schoolers finished 4th in Team Olympics and 5th in Duals, middle school finished 3rd in Team Olympics and 3rd in Duals, and youth finished 1st in Team Olympics and 2nd in Duals. As they say, summer wrestling makes winter champions!
We are excited to announce our partnership with MyHouse Sports Gear for wrestler and fan gear available year-round. MyHouse provides high quality gear that ships directly to the recipient, and has recently signed Alabama native Hannah Gladden as a spokesperson! We hope this transition provides our parents and fans with a simpler gear ordering experience.
With only 29 wrestlers, NAEW took third place overall, and second place in the Bantam division at the AYWO Youth State Championship tournament on Feb 1, 2020! Here are the stats breakdown:
First and foremost, we are here to help kids grow into successful young people. Wrestling is simply a tool to do that, albeit one of the very best tools! Through this great sport, kids learn determination, accountability, and perseverance while building friendships that will last a lifetime.
Coach Donny Simpson said it best "I know I wouldn’t be the person I am today if not for wrestling. It gave me my work ethic, and the attitude that if something isn’t going right in my life that it’s all on me, and I’m the only one who can change it. Made me comfortable being in very uncomfortable situations in life."
