•  Willmar Cardinal Wrestling

     

    “Whether one wrestles to earn a team berth or become a world champion, he enlists in a proud community of athletes known for their courage and dedication. In the most demanding of all athletics, the wrestler is commanded to condition his body to the very limit of his endurance, habitually denies himself of normal pleasures, and proves himself time and time again in grueling competition, frequently under pressure. A nobility becomes the sport. There is no mat space for malcontents or dissipaters. One must neither celebrate insanely when he wins nor sulk when he loses. He accepts victory professionally and humbly. He hates defeat, but makes no poor display of it. More enduringly than any other sport, wrestling teaches self-control and pride. Some have wrestled without great skill; none have wrestled without pride.”
