We can not thank the New Jerusalem School District and the Delta Charter School enough for providing the facility to host the tournament. The New Jerusalem School District and the Delta Charter School played a major role in the rebuilding of the Tracy Wrestling Club. Three years ago they opened their doors to the club to hold practices and tournaments. The club has steadily grown in size and has since moved to a new facility at the Northgate Village Shopping Center.
Lastly, thank you to all of the volunteers that helped set up, break down, staff tables, run the snack shack, cook the food (the TriTip was beyond awesome), video tape, take pictures, and helped in so many other ways. Thank you!
