The recreation department runs the Youth Wrestling Program. Kids in kindergarten through 8th grade can sign up.
7-year old Tallen Pawlek has been part of it for about two years. Last year, he only lost two matches in 38. This year, he's 20 - 2 so far. It's a sport he plans to continue for a long time.
Tallen says he loves wrestling because he likes to win trophies and medals. He's going to Chicago soon to compete in state. If he wins, he'll receive a belt.
