[April 02, 2010]  Jarrett Poole, the Lincoln youngster who came in second in last week's midget wrestling state tournament, is going to wrestle for the Illinois Inferno in tournaments against teams from all over the United States this summer.

The father of the wrestler Jarrett lost to recommended Jarrett for the team. According to coach Walt Landers, Jarrett has really dedicated himself to the sport and has talked all year about finding opportunities to wrestle after the regular season was over, and his parents are very supportive and don't push him. "I think it could be a great experience for him as a wrestler and as a young man," said Landers. "I am sure the competition will be tough and he will have to work very hard to compete at this level, but hopefully he can enjoy the same type of success as he has had all year. I am sure Jarrett will do his very best and will represent our team and community well."

The Poole family currently is planning trips to Tennessee, Ohio and Virginia Beach.

Easter recipes are now posted in our Grab Your Fork recipes section. If you are looking for a special meal, appetizer, salad, sweet, bread or beverage, check out the hundreds of recipe ideas we have.
