AAU Team Montana Competes At National Meet In Nebraska
Team Montana, an American Athletic Union wrestling club, teaches and coaches wrestling for boys and girls from eastern Montana between kindergarten and eighth grade.
Wes Kirn of Poplar founded the traveling club.
Kirn and other coaches and adult volunteers took a bus with 35 young wrestlers from eastern Montana to an AAU meet in Bozeman this past weekend. Many are from Wolf Point, Poplar and other communities on the Fort Peck Reservation. Others are from Glasgow, Culbertson, Miles City and Sidney.
The club recently competed at the AAU Winter Nationals in Omaha, Neb., where nine of the 14 local wrestlers placed.
Team Montana will compete in Iowa this year.
