Congratulations to the Freeport wrestling team for winning this week's 1440 WROK Team of the Week award.

The Freeport wrestling team made history last weekend when Cadence Diduch became the first female champion in NIC-10 history. The rest of the Pretzel grapplers had a good weekend as well and came just a little short of defending their NIC-10 title.

While many of the wrestlers will turn their focus to next week's regionals, Diduch will not wrestle in the boy's regionals and turn her attention to the girl's state tournament. We wish her luck.

The Pretzel wrestling team has earned a $100 Visa gift card for their program and will be entered in the $500 year end contest.

Did your team have a great week? Do they deserve the $100 weekly prize? If so nominate them below and then vote for them when the poll is released on Monday.

BUT!!

Before we get to the details. A HUGE thank you goes out to Rock Valley College for sponsoring this and helping us get this program off the ground.

So, who is eligible to enter the contest?
Literally any area high school team that is participating in an IHSA sanctioned sport.

That includes:

Boys and Girls Basketball
Boys and Girls Bowling
Competitive Cheerleading
Competitive Dance
Boys Swimming and Diving
Wrestling
How does the contest work?
Great question. We will take nominations over each weekend starting today. On Monday, we will go through the nominations and select our finalists. Then on Monday a post will go up on 1440WROK.com where fans and supporters can go and vote for their team through midnight that Thursday. On Friday we will announce the winner during the morning show.

Rinse and repeat through the rest of the season. We will take a 2 week break for Christmas and the final weekly winner will be for the week of February 28th- March 2nd. The $500 winner will be voted on the following week.

How do I submit a team?
Another excellent question. Each week, we will put up a new post with a submission form. The one below is for this week's contest. You have until Sunday night to nominate your team. We will put up a poll on Monday and announce the winner on Friday. Then we do the whole thing over again starting next week.
