Notes from Coach Doyle
Sean Doyle, Head Coach, Wheeling Jesuit University
November 28, 2016

Happy Thanksgiving from Wheeling Jesuit Wrestling! We hope that you had a relaxing weekend with family and friends. It's a special time of the year and an opportunity to be appreciative of many things. We are thankful for your continued support of our program and your help in growing Wheeling Jesuit Wrestling. I would like to make special note of a few key individuals that have helped and don't often receive notice. Our volunteer staff is amazing and receive nothing in return. Rick Welker has been incredible on the recruiting front, evident by our early commitments. BJ Hedger continues to be of support to our guys from a distance in many facets of strength/conditioning training and diet. Matt Littleton has been with us three years and been impactful in the room on a daily basis. Our Graduate Assistant Jonathan Barrett is a huge asset and help to me on a daily basis, in any way possible. Big thanks to this crew. 

We would like to invite you to this Thursday's rivalry match against West Lib. It's set to begin at 8:00pm on the campus of Wheeling Jesuit University. We have planned an exciting evening for all and the McDonough Center is sure to be packed as the rivalry grows. Please be sure to wear your best red as a RED OUT has been planned. The social will begin at 7:00pm and will take place in the lobby of the McDonough Center instead of the Hall of Fame Room. Be sure to swing by to meet and catch up with the Cardinal Family. 

The team is off to a strong start winning our first dual of the year, winning the Washington and Jefferson Invitational and having a strong showing at the Findlay Open (no team scoring at this event). The team started the season ranked #19 in the country, with 7 wrestlers in the regional rankings. The 3 that were not, Daniel Romero (9-1), Greg Brusco (10-1)and Nic Skonieczny (8-2) have certainly made a strong case to enter. 

Have a great week and we'll see you Thursday!!
