2011-2012 Club Photos

Rick Baxter sent in some photos.  They 5 wrestlers, winning 13 of 14 matches and won 4 championships and 1 runner up finish.  Nice Job!


Cheryl Bell was kind enough to share her photos with us.  I screen grabbed them from her printer's photo website and put them into a few videos. 



What can we expect to see on this site?

I want to make the website the focal point for information about the club.  Wrestling forms, news, travel plans, maps, cancellations, and of course PHOTOS.  As I find time to get this project going, I want to get photos of each wrestler online.  I will also try and follow the Pius wrestlers as well.  How much information posted on this site about Pius wrestling will depend on the interest generated.


Why Wrestle?

Wrestling prepares a person to fight the game of life.  The wrestler is the one athlete that must meet their opponent and do battle completely on their own; no one can substitute; no time outs are possible.  You have no one to check, screen, block, or assist you in any way; there is no one to blame for your mistakes.  When you win, you must show quiet pride and modesty; when you lose, the responsibility is yours.  Wrestling is a special sport.  In other sports, when contact is made they blow a whistle to stop the action; in wrestling when contact is made, we're just getting started.  No sport requires more sacrifice then wrestling.  The individual, through self denial, offers more of his character than can ever be explained here.  It is something you carry with you throughout life, and through every trial, test, and tribulation.



Welcome to the Thunderbolt Wrestling Club website.  I am happy to be a part of the Thunderbolt team and I hope you enjoy the site.
