A memorable season

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

We would like to sincerely thank everyone for their support and acts of kindness shown to us before, during and following our time at the Iowa Wrestling Championships in Des Moines. There are many we would especially like to thank, including the businesses who sponsored the radio updates and live coverage on KUOO and KICD Radio so that everyone at home could stay informed -- and those who gave of their time to do that play-by-play; Ryan Christoffel and the Dickinson County News for the excellent coverage and support of Okoboji Wrestling all season long; our awesome coaches who taught us what is takes to get to the state tournament and supported us at all times; to the Okoboji School District for arranging a pep bus so our peers could come and support us when we needed it most; to the Milford Fire Department for the great send-off to Des Moines, the Okoboji Booster Club/Wrestling Club/cheerleaders for all the great things they did for us, and most of all, to the community for backing us and cheering us on. We had the time of our lives there, and will always remember that special time. Very special, heartfelt thanks and a bittersweet farewell to our head coach, Justin Bouse. We've learned so much in our time with you on and off the mat. WE WILL MISS YOU NEXT YEAR.
