Greetings Pointer wrestling fans & family,
School has started and the boys are back at it. We have a tremendous group of
guys and we are very excited about the upcoming season. With 22 freshmen and
sophomores, the future of our team looks extremely bright.
A couple of quick notes from the summer months; we had 4 alumni who were married
recently. Jon Burdick, Joe Bavlnka, Ryan Hanson, and our own Yan White were all
married this summer. Congrats men!
With the beginning of the year there are many things on the slate. Just recently
we held our golf outing at the Stevens Point Country Club. The turnout was good
as was the weather and the course. Thanks to all of those who participated in
that. The winning team consisted of Mark “Fish” Poirier, Kyle Olund, Jamie
Hildebrandt, and Chris “Kitty” Kittmann. The wrestling team will be organizing
and running their annual triathlon on Saturday, Sept. 22nd. Homecoming is
Saturday, October 13th. We hope many of the alumni will be able to come back and
play our friendly football game that morning. That evening at the Hall of Fame
Banquet, Jere Hamel will take his place in the UWSP Athletic Hall of Fame. And
finally, the Pointer season will kick off with the Pointer Open on November 10th
in the Multi-Activity center.
We hope many of you will continue to support us by staying in touch, coming to
meets, and cheering for the Pointers. Watch your mail as we will be sending out
the annual Takedown Club brochures. Please let us know if you do not receive
your booster club mailing.
Thanks for your support. GO POINTERS!

will be participating in our annual alumni football game at 10:00 AM on
the practice field.
Please find attached the invitation to the

Greetings Pointer Wrestling fans:
