During March Sequim’s up-and-coming wrestlers learned the basics at Mat Rats. Coaches and high school wrestlers taught techniques and strategies twice a week to students ages 5-12 in the Sequim Community School gymnasium.

More than 50 students participated in the camp which encourages and prepares athletes for middle and high school wrestling.

Drabek said the program grew from last year and was another success.
