Wrestling Program Renames Junior High Tournament
Pioneer Duals now Caleb Walker Memorial Tournament
The 2016-2017 L-S junior high wrestling team will compete at Saturday's Caleb Walker Memorial Tournament.
Beginning this year, the name of the District's junior high wrestling tournament will change from Pioneer Duals Junior High Tournament to the Caleb Walker Memorial Tournament. Members of the wrestling program decided to rename the tournament in honor of L-S graduate and wrestler Caleb Walker. Caleb embodied the traits that the wrestling program aims to instill in student athletes.
During Caleb's illness, he received a gift of a respite week with his family. The experience led him to found A Week Away, a nonprofit organization that allows families facing life-threatening illness to have some much needed time together and to feel normal again.
The Pioneer Duals has been the District's junior high wrestling tournament for decades and is well known in the area. The name change continues the tradition while supporting Caleb's organization and vision. The first Caleb Walker Memorial Tournament will be held on Saturday, January 7, at the High School.
