In terms of the final standing, we weren't as competitive as could have been with our normal line-up. We finished the day with only 8 wrestler, we started the day with 10, but two had withdrawal due to injury.
It is good to have 6 of 8 place and see the improvement all our individuals are making.

High School/Middle School Mentors Needed
Oscoda Schools would like to expand this program at the high school/ middle school grade levels. The program is already at the elementary school and mentors are also welcome there.
- Who: Adults who care and want to make a difference in the lives of youth.
- What: 45 Minutes spent during the school day with a student who needs someone else to care about them.
- When:Year round one time per week
- Where:Oscoda High School & Middle School
Mentors are matched with one student and meet with them one time per week during the school day - every week. Mentors help the student be more successful in school. If you know of a adult who would like to mentor a student please email Linda Stemen, Parent Outreach Liaison, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 739-4472. We all know someone who has time to share please encourage them to mentor.
