What a phenomenal weekend for our Arbor View Gladiators at the USA Wrestling Nevada State Championships at the Riviera Hotel and Casino. It was a complete team effort from every club member that pulled a singlet on, coach that lost their voice encouraging and instructing and parents who hugged their little warrior after a tough match. All our boys and girls from the youngest Rookie age group to our high school Cadet & Juniors battled for 3 days in 3 different styles to finish 3rd overall as a team with more than 60 clubs competing. It was also the highest finish for our club, but what was most impressive was the overwhelming support our coaches, parents and kids showed for each other. Our high school coaches coached youth wrestlers and our youth coaches coached our high school wrestlers. Our coaching staff couldn't be more proud, and out right thankful to be part of this special group.

Must read- Wrestler of the Week - SPOTLIGHT COACH- Meghann Marchello
With last week’s “Women’s Wrestling Week” a success, given that our ladies were the champions in the All-Girls AZ State Championships, WE would like to spotlight the woman who helps to make these ladies who they are: Meghann Marchello. I put Coach Meghann Marchello up to the task of taking down some questions of how long she has been wrestling, what got her in to wrestling, and why the push for women’s wrestling? Here is how she answered.
“I grew up a gymnast and a cowgirl. I swung around bars and barrels. I was also very fortunate to have a father that told me from before I could walk, that I could do anything if I worked hard. I really never thought that there was any sport or athlete that could understand the sacrifice, commitment or dedication one has to endure to practice hours each day, overcome fears, and push your body to absolute extremes like competitive gymnastics. When I met Rusty at Adams State. I met the first athlete that truly gave more than I ever thought was possible for an athlete. The first time I saw him wrestle, I knew this was a sport that changed lives and I wanted to be part of it. Wrestling IS the most difficult sport, and I love challenges. Rusty started teaching me, because I desperately wanted to understand how wrestlers are able to control their own bodies as well as someone else’s. Since both my children spent so much time wrestling, I knew that to help them and support them, I had to understand the sport better. Last year, I competed at the Las Vegas Open and WOW! I had Olympians and college studs in my bracket. I learned so much competing in that tournament. Since, I have competed in grappling tournaments, and plan to this year as well. I am still learning and don’t plan on stopping until my body tells me I can’t.
I teach high school and work with young women every day. I feel that these girls have even more to deal with than I did at that age. Technology and social media has changed how young people perceive what is important in life. When I saw the huge growth of women’s wrestling I thought it was an amazing opportunity. The involvement in girls in this sport can be the difference. Wrestling teaches you to stand independent on your own two feet. It teaches hard work, discipline, focus, and that you have to take care of yourself and those around you. These young women (and young men) need this. They need more people teaching and supporting them to learn these character traits. I feel a personal responsibility to teach and help change these young people’s course in life, that’s why I am promoting this amazing sport. I can’t wait until Nevada catches up to the revolution that has been started, we aren't going anywhere. Women’s wrestling is here to stay. Girls: every time you step on the mat you are changing your life and others! You are making a difference!
Off-season practices and from here on out, unless we are attending a tournament or otherwise notified, the weekly schedule will be as followed:
Monday - Thursday 2:45p-3:50p large weight room/ then 4:00p - 5:00p wrestling room.
7th-8th grade Gladiators who will be attending, plan on meeting at the wrestling room by 4:00p. Off-season dues are $100. I am ordering shirts and shorts this week once I have everyones' sizes. This Friday begins the Greco portion of the NV state tournament and we need some volunteers to help work tables from 11a-5p then on Saturday from 8am to 4pm.
Parents & Wrestlers,
Nevada State is March 13-15 at the Riviera Hotel and Casino, registration will be closed March 8. We need our boys and girls registered ASAP to see how many kids from the Gladiators are wrestling in the tournament. We could possibly qualify for a boxed section at the tournament, which will be great to have so we can set up comfortable spaces for the kids and parents. To ease some of the confusion I can register the kids on trackwrestling.com, but only if your wrestler plans on attending this event.
Registration is $50 for all three styles or $25 per style. You pay at the time of weigh-ins, and the discount will be given at that time. You must have Red/Blue singlet to wrestle FRS/GRC-if you ordered a blue one great, if not, we'll figure something out. Wrestlers will also have to miss school on Friday. We will arrange a pickup/dropoff time next week.
State Flyer Here
Most of our tournaments are Freestyle/Greco USA Wrestling tournaments, so since we ordered red singlets at the beginning of the season we are offering blue singlets so our wrestlers have both. However, I need to order these by Monday, March 2nd so that they are here before Freestyle NV State March 12th. We can order red singlets as well. Singlets are $80 each. I will accept payment anytime before or up to March 12th, so get your order in!
I/our fans would love to see more pics of our Gladiators, so if you have any you want to appear on our site, please send them to me email@example.com
