By: Maria Donnay Currently being 21-5 this season, As many as there are stars in the sky, is the number of hours put into this season The countless numbers of such intense workouts, To the point of sickness, Pushing until you puke. Practicing, practicing, and practicing, And drilling and drilling and drilling, With the smell of perspiration in the air, Training to become stronger, quicker, and faster. Preparation, many miles run and pounds cut, For the team, a team effort. Always watching what you eat, Even spitting away the pounds at times. No pop, no candy, no chips. And knowing what you weigh, Not ever thinking how good water actually tasted until not being able to have that either. And you just can't forget either the many, many bottles of Zipfizz To get you through a long day after having a meet the night before or just the next practice. Hours of coaching, planning work-outs, making posters and locker hang-ups, miles traveling to each meet So you are left wondering Why? Why would anyone do this to themselves? You can call them crazy or whatever you'd like, It may be too touchy for some, Others not so much. The only answer logical that I know of is "Gotta Love It" And they do, the ones that keep on coming back for more, Pushing themselves harder and harder to get better Dedication, determination, devotion, endurance, strength, confidence, intel- ligence, speed, agility Are some of the qualities needed to stick it out. But not forgetting the heart through it all. And the lights go down... The crowd cheers as our Cubs run out on the mat. One match for each just three, two-minute periods reaRy Always going for the pin, or even just sim- ply the win. With this does come all the bloody noses and battle scars, In the end with the goal of walking off the mat a champion. Not even mentioning having to deal with the lovely mouthpieces, braces, and tape jobs done. And don't forget that headgear either! We all know what happens if you don't wear that ... The excitement of the crowd, Roar and thunder and occasional booing are all part of it. Having a few low points, Sickness and injury and through it all Supported by the community: Coaches, parents, managers, school, teach- ers, friends and families cheering on our -mighty Cubs! With such great leadership we have among them, The sky is the limit! Of course, too, along with all of the hard work put in, is the laughter and fun, Found in everyday matters. These kids, I tell you, are tough as nails. I look up to each and of them. I am left in.amazement more and more each day. They've got heart! And the faith that they have is even more incredible! The ultimate and overall goal for the team is the X-cel Center, Place of the state tournament, first week- end of March. With only a couple mre regular season matches left, Tuesday is the first round of team sections. That Friday is also Final Four (top four teams) night. First the #1 ranked team ACGC is going down. After that will be either Paynesville or EV-W. Which then sends us on our way to the state tournament. You're not going to want to miss this! This season, right here, right now is history in the making... Season 09-10 How big is your dream? Kimball Wrestling !had the privilege to read this on the bus ride to Albany and I had to ask Maria if I could share it with everyone. This season has been filled with some ups and downs, but through it all, the kids have worked very hard to get to where they are now. The sup- port from the community has been awe- some to say the least, and to have someone put it into words really tells you how special this season is! The Cubs finished this week going 1-3 in dual meets and finishing sixth in the Albany tournament, Friday, Feb. 12. The Cubs could not catch any breaks in their dual meets as injuries plagued the Cubs. The Cubs are hoping to get healthy over the weekend and finish the season on a high note. A new season starts Tuesday, Feb. 16, when Kimball will face the winner of Long- Prairie Grey Eagle and Osakis. When the Cubs make it through that winner, and by the time you will read this, we will be going to Paynesville to face ACGC in the Semi- Finals of the Final Four on Friday night, Feb. 19. Wrestling will start at 6 p.m., and the Finals will be at 8 p.m. Team rosters for 2010 alumni tournament 1970S & '80s.
