Since its debut after Christmas break at the Center Point/Central DeWitt wrestling meet, the Pin-O-Meter’s readings have doubled.

In the last month of their season, the Hawks racked up over 470 pins increasing their pin-a-thon earnings to over $14,000 and surpassing the 403 pins earned during the 2017-2018 season.  

The Hawks have used these earnings to pay for new warm-ups and singlets, as well as an overnight trip to Perry where the team competed in a tournament. The extra funds will help to pay for future expenses and future trips to Perry.

The wrestlers will collect their individual pledges by March 13.
