John Callahan Wrestling Memorial
The El Monte High School wrestling team will be hosting the John Callahan Wrestling Memorial on December 14 in the EMHS gymnasium.
The El Monte High School Alumni Association will be running the snack bar to raise money for our young cubs scholarship fund. If you would like to come out and give us a hand or attend the tournament please do so.
“We would like to have as many fellow wrestlers attend this event. Coach Callahan was one of our best wrestling coaches in the 60’s and 70’s,” says event contact person Gilbert Garcia. “He was well loved by all his wrestlers and they are holding this event in his honor. Please share this and call or contact your wrestling teammates from the past and ask them to attend. If you need more info contact me.”
Gilbert Garcia can be reached through Facebook.
