Great Weekend - Great People

Just some quick thoughts as we wrap up an incredible weekend of Fowlerville Athletics;

- I can not say THANK YOU enough to all the people who made our 2nd Annual "Get Your Pink On" Event a success.  The competition gym was a sea of pink on Friday.  The themes of "Fighting" and "Never Giving Up" were very evident from start to finish.  Each of our student athletes displayed courage and determination while giving their best effort until the clock hit 0:00.  I am proud to be a Gladiator and everyone in this great community should feel the same.  You are all #cancerwarriors!

- Our Competitive Cheer team attended Albion High School's "Wildcat Invitational" on Saturday.  The young Gladiator squad came home with their highest scores of the season and secured a 3rd place finish!  They will wrap up their CAAC season at HOME this Wednesday at 6pm in the Auxiliary Gym.  Make sure you stop by and support them!

- Our Wrestling team's regular season campaign came to a close at home on Saturday.  The Glads claimed a share of the CAAC Red Division Championship with a solid 2nd place performance in the Divisional Tournament.  Once again, the true CHARACTER of our student athletes was in full force as each one of them gave great effort in front of a great home crowd.  Again, the people who volunteered to help the meet run so well can not be thanked enough.  You are all are champions in my eyes!  The squad rolls into the MHSAA Tournament at Fenton on Thursday for Team Districts and Mason on Saturday for Individual Districts.  Good luck in the Tournament men!

- Special recognition goes out to Brian Moran and Adam Coon.  These tremendous young men finished their regular seasons with undefeated records that culminated with CAAC All-Conference and Individual Championships at their respective weight classes. We are all very proud of you!
