Ramona’s future wrestlers — “The Pound” — finished their season with outstanding results, shaking San Diego, Imperial, Riverside and Fresno counties, said Eddie Badgett, head coach.

“I am proud of each and every one of my boys and girls,” said Badgett. “I have a saying I like to preach to the kids and it is, ‘You need to take the time to teach a child something right, or someone else will teach your child something wrong!’”

Badgett and The Pound’s assistant coaches all take the quality time in teaching each the young wrestlers, he said.

“Whether new to the sport or not, they will achieve and reach their goals,” he said, adding, “It is not all about the joy of wrestling, its academics as well. It’s learning the basics of wrestling, control, technique, and the joy.”

The team has 24 youth and nine coaches.

“I believe that the individual training on focusing on a smaller ratio is what has made our little Ramona team so successful,” said Badgett. “Our competition is talking. They know to watch Ramona. When you show up at a tournament and you hear one say, ‘Ramona is here,’ and they sigh, you have to chuckle a bit.”

Badgett and the assistant coaches send “Congratulations to all our podium winners:”
