Wrestling

Wrestling is a sport that students join in the the fall. Students can join if they are in the 4th grade – 12th grade. The wrestling team travels to near by villages to meet and have their tournaments. The last place where the team travels to is Bethel, where teams compete with new wrestlers. It is like the big regional meet of the year. Also, Kwethluk has their tournament once a year in their home town during the middle of November.

Both boys and girls can join the wrestling team. There is 60 lbs. to heavyweight classes. The wrestlers will be happy when they make it to the next round of their weight class. The wrestling team is large here, and very popular with the elementary students. Students like to wrestle because of the competition with others and the chance to travel. Others wrestle to stay in shape during the year. No matter what the reason is, wrestling is a lot of work and a lot of fun.
