Shorthorn Wrestling Announcements

The Shorthorn wrestling team is for both the beginner wrestler and the more experienced wrestler in grades 7 and 8.  The program involves matches in the Chagrin Valley Conference as well as independent tournaments.  This is a co-ed program and there are separate tournaments available for girls.

Shorthorn Wrestling registration for the 2022-23 is now open on Final Forms:


The Shorthorns had another great week of competition going 9-3 at the conference matches at Cuyahoga Heights.  We also had a great showing at the Lakewood Open with 14 kids participating.  It was so nice to see both the Shorthorns and Minihorns competing together.  Also shoutout to Cali for taking another tournament championship out at the Freemont Ross tournament with our high school girls.

This week we have less competition but bigger stakes as the Shorthorns head to Perry on Saturday (1/28) for the CVC tournament.  Attached is a flyer with the information but it will be a long day.  Weigh-ins start at 7:30am so we'll need to leave LW by 6:15am for anyone who needs a ride.  Wrestling scheduled to start at 9:30am.  We'll be competing at the same place where the High school team is competing so it will be packed.  I highly suggest brings some folding chairs along with a packed cooler for the day.

Practice schedule this week:

  • Mon (1/23) - Lifting 6-6:30pm and practice from 6:30-8pm
  • Tues (1/24) - Practice from 5:30-7pm 
  • Weds (1/25) - Practice from 5:30-7pm
