KMS 2011-12 Season Re-Cap:
The Kennedy Middle School team dominated throughout the 2011-12 season. Every individual was focused and determined to succeed! They continue to grow and learn through the coaching techniques and strategies of head coach Jeff Szohr, Assistants Nate Steinbrecher, Jeff Szohr and many former alumni volunteers. It was an exciting season, great job wrestlers. An extra congrats to Tommy Nelson & Tyler Schleicher, the "3-minute man" award winner for 2011-12 season. This award is given to the wrestler who wrestles all 3 periods (1 minute periods in the middle school level) with heart, determination and the willingness to wrestle to the very last second of every match! Keep working and getting the mat time... the program's success stems from the work you put in now.
