The Gift of Song & Athletic Gear
The AHS Wrestling Team continues its tradition of Christmas caroling this Friday following practice. The team also cuts and stacks firewood each fall for families who cannot manage the task on their own. Finally, this same group of athletes donates wrestling singlets and shoes to the Godfrey-Lee High School wrestling program, enabling more students to participate in the sport.
