Ironman Award

About the "Ironman Award"

Starting in the summer of 2016, Louisburg wrestlers of all ages will earn points for summer wrestling events. Every Wildcat wrestler who earns at least 100 points will earn the “Ironman Award” and get his name printed on the back of a t-shirt.

Why summer wrestling? There's a common saying in our sport that summer wrestling makes winter champions. Have you ever come to the end of your season and suffered that miserable feeling that causes you to wish you'd ended on a better note? Summer wrestling propels your winter season further. Whether it's Folkstyle, Freestyle, or Greco-Roman, any wrestling is good. Make the commitment, invest your time, and reap the benefits in the post-season!
