Mitch Fenton took home silver medals in both the Freestyle and Greco Roman wrestling styles in the Cadet division at this past weekend’s Maryland State Wrestling Championships. With these two medals, Mitch has qualified to be a member of Team Maryland and will train and travel with the team to compete in the Cadet National Championships in Fargo, North Dakota in July.
Please join me in congratulating Mitch and Harriet’s tremendous offseason success!!
Harriet Symington won the title in the 46 kg/101.25 lbs weight class in the FILA Cadet Women’s National Championships on May 11 in Lakeland, Florida. This win earned her a berth on the FILA Cadet Women’s National Team, which will travel to the FILA Cadet World Championships in Zrenjanin, Serbia in August.
Check out the Save Olympic Wrestling video for an important message about Olympic Wrestling, but even more important about what wrestling is and what it means. TO ALL OF MY WRESTLERS: Watch this video, then watch it again, and again, and again. Pay attention to the words from 3:15 to 3:30!!! Some food for thought in the offseason.
This link has also been installed permanently to the left below, as one of the wrestling links.
Walt Whitman All Sports Booster Club will sponsor its annual Physical Day at Walt Whitman High School on Saturday, June 8, 2013 from 8:30am-12:30pm.
This is a great opportunity for any student intending to participate in athletic activities in 2013-2014. The sports physical will clear a student for ALL ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES for the full school year.
Take advantage of this opportunity to get all of your required paperwork completed before summer begins. This sports physical is a screening exam and is not meant to substitute for a full annual examination. If any problems are detected at the screening, the athlete will be referred to his or her family doctor.
Please note- concussion baseline testing will not be held this year as part of Physical Day. Montgomery County Public Schools has elected to administer the testing on a county-wide basis at all county high schools beginning in the Fall. For the avoidance of doubt, they will not conduct sports physicals, which remain the responsibility of students and which remains the main advantage of Physical Day. We are lucky to have such generous volunteers, so please sign up now!
DATE: JUNE 8, 2013
TIME: 8:30am-12:30pm, by appointment
Where: Whitman PE offices, Boys & Girls Locker Rooms
COST: $40 (checks are payable to Whitman All Sports Boosters)
What to wear: Gym shorts and T-shirts
Required Forms: There are 5 forms that need to be completed by all athletes (and a 6th form for football players). The relevant sections of all forms must be completed and signed by parents before a student’s physical appointment June 8. All forms needed for Physical Day can be found at the following link:http://www.fightingvikings.com/forms.aspx
To schedule appointment, please email Mila Casey at email@example.com
All Proceeds benefit the WHITMAN ALL SPORTS BOOSTER CLUB which supports all sports programs.
WE STILL NEED MORE DOCTORS, NURSE PRACTITIONERS, NURSES, OTHER MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS AND VOLUNTEERS- PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE AVAILABLE!

The annual “Whitman All-Sports Boosters” mulch sale will be Saturday, March 16th. ALL wrestlers are required to attend on March 16th from 8 AM-12 PM to help distribute the bags of mulch. This is the same time as the football team and the track team. So by showing up at this time you will be fulfilling your requirement for both teams. All student-athletes are required to attend for their sport. Once there please check in with Coach Manon, Coach Sharbaugh, or Coach Fisher to confirm attendance.
Additionally, each wrestler is also required to turn in their singlet and warm-up jacket once their season is complete. ALL JV WRESTLERS should have turned in their uniform at this point. Only those who are wrestling in the County Tournament at Blair High School should still have their uniform.
