The 39th annual Wrestling Awards Night was held at the Italian Hall on April 18

The Alberni and ADSS Wrestling programs held their 39th annual Wrestling Awards Night at the Italian Hall on April 18 with well more than 200 people in attendance.

This evening recognizes the accomplishments of the past year and celebrates the purpose and culture that has made this program what it is—a vision that puts the holistic development of each young person as the primary goal of the program. Wrestling is the vehicle but not the end goal. The programs contribute to developing strong, vibrant, healthy and positive people through the sport of Olympic wrestling.
