If you enjoy this website and want to see us be able to offer the level of coverage we did last season with numerous tournament recaps, feature stories, highlight videos, action photos, and more, please consider donating to our GoFundMe campaign. We need your help to give our Illinois wrestlers the coverage they deserve! This site relies on advertising revenue and your donations in order to keep all of our content free to the public unlike most other wrestling websites that charge a subscription fee.
