I have sent emails to most of these coaches and I have not gotten their info in yet so….

I need your help, could you please forward to coach or send in your questionnaire for this years Dakota Grappler.  (putting a little pressure on is fine) I have sent out requests earlier and I know everyone is busy…  My deadline is like right now.  If this is the first time you have seen this I do apologize, there are a couple of new coaches and new emails out there that I did not get or don’t have access to…
Check out the questionnaire attached below,  with time being short, the most important things are your coaching staff, and a quick season outlook, I can get last years line-ups and records from trackwrestling…
Thanks again,
