We are sorry for the late notice but due to unforeseen circumstances, today’s match (Thursday November 21) at Father Ryan has been canceled. Please forward this news to others who may not receive these emails.

Next Middle School match is this Sunday vs. the Wave from Memphis. All Middle School wrestlers should attend and weigh-ins at 1:00 pm and wrestling at 2:00. For those interested there will be Mass at noon in the Wrestling Room.

Important: All Middle School wrestlers should bring their singlets to practice on Wednesday November 20. We will gather them up and return them to each wrestler before the MBA match next day.

The time for the NCW/MBA match on Thursday has been moved up due to the Purple / White match at Father Ryan. All NCW Middle School wrestlers must be at Father Ryan at 4:00 pm, but do not have to be on weight. Again singlets will be returned before the match.

On Sunday our NCW Middle School will wrestle the Christian Brothers Wave Club from Memphis. For those interested, there will be a Mass at noon in the Wrestling room. Weigh-ins will be at 1:00 and wrestling begins at 2:00 pm. There will be (3) mats as Father Ryan will be wrestling Christian Brothers same time, and will be held in the Father Ryan gym. All NCW Middle School wrestlers should get a match, but do not have to be on weight. There will be concessions, and since this is a Father Ryan match there will be an admission charge except for wrestlers. There will not be NCW practice Sunday afternoon.

To our NCW wrestling families.

We received sad news this morning as Tommy Bateman has passed away. In addition to being a star football player and Head Football Coach at Father Ryan, Tommy was a State Champion wrestler at Father Ryan who always gave back to the sport. He was the founder of our beloved Nashville Catholic Wrestling and saw that boys needed to learn some basic fundamentals before going on to wrestle in high school.

Funeral arrangements will be announced later, but please keep his family in your prayers.
