ANNA—Between practices on January 31, 2017, the A-J Junior Wildcats Wrestling Club made a $500 donation to the Anna-Jonesboro Community High School Wrestling Team. This donation was in return for the high school team’s assistance at the Club’s annual “On The Prowl” wrestling tournament held at the high school in January.
This donation is representative of the Club’s investment in the high school program over recent years. In addition to these yearly cash donations, since its establishment seven years ago, the Club has been a source of new high school wrestlers every year, a couple of the high school’s coaches and many parents and fans.
The high school wrestling team’s success—including last weekend’s winning of the first regional title in the team’s history—is the culmination of years of hard work and community support in which the entire Club is proud to have played a role among so many others. The A-J Junior Wildcats Wrestling Club wishes the Anna-Jonesboro Community High School Wrestling Team continued success as they head into sectional competition.
