Kind Words For Maspeth High Wrestlers From An Upstate NY Parent

Your high school sent a group of wrestlers to a tournament in Dolgeville, upstate NY, earlier in the week. My son wrestled in the tournament also, he attends another upstate school. Wrestling is a tough sport. In my opinion the toughest school level sport one can participate in. My son mentioned to me that he believed your school was in the early stages of developing a wrestling program. I do not represent my son's school, or any school, I write as a parent and observer. I would like to commend your school, your coaches, and wrestlers for putting forth the effort to start a program and trek way upstate to participate in a tough tournament, going up against programs that have been up and running for many years. Your students represented themselves well and should hold their heads up; they are in the arena and working hard. You should be proud of them.
