The Elk River Wrestling Board would like to welcome Ryan Haferbecker to the wrestling family! Ryan will be our Youth Wrestling Director.
The Elk River High School wrestling team recently presented a $771.09 check to the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund. The wrestlers raised the money during their “Takedown Cancer” event on Jan. 31 when the team faced off against Park Center in a conference dual.
During the week, the team sold $1 name cards to classmates and faculty. On the name card, the buyer could write the name of someone who lost their fight with cancer and/or the name of someone who is winning their cancer battle. Each team member set the goal to sell at least five cards.
At the dual an announcement was made that for the next two minutes, the time of one wrestling period, team members were going up into the crowd to collect donations. With the assistance of three Park Center wrestlers, three ERHS captains and three team managers, $500 was collected from the crowd.
