At the Elwood School District Board of Education’s Feb. 9 meeting, Elwood-John H. Glenn High School’s county champion wrestling team were honored for winning the Suffolk County Division II Dual Meet Championship.

“It is a rare occasion when we invite an entire team to a Board of Education meeting to be recognized, but the Board and I felt we’d be remiss if we did not bring forward the John Glenn High School wrestling team,” Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Bossert said.

“The team showed heart, character and perseverance throughout the Dual Meet Championship,” Athletic Director Dave Shanahan said. “Championships are not just won, they are earned with outstanding coaching. Another piece of the championship puzzle is to have exceptional parents who value athletics, an important foundation in the lives of our student athletes. The wrestling parents cheered loud and proud throughout the day, providing energy and strong resolve, and for that, we thank you. Congratulations to the 2022-2023 wrestling team. You have made the school proud, your parents proud and the community proud. We certainly showed Suffolk County that Elwood what Elwood pride is all about.”

Dr. Bossert noted that a county championship banner had been ordered, and he and the Board presented the team with a certificate to hang in the wrestling room until the banner arrives.
