My name is Denzel Mabry and I am a junior at Castlemont High School in Oakland, CA. I have been wrestling for 7 years and it has been an amazing journey. I started in 5th grade with Coach Dominic Leon and Freddie Lee Hurt with the Wan Tu Wazuri Wrestling club.
In my first year of wrestling, I placed first in my first ever tournament and was a wrestler in the Fresno State Tournament and took home 6th place. The following year I returned to Fresno State and took home 5th place. My first year in high school I won my section and attended Bakersfield State, but did not place. However, I qualified for Nationals in Fargo, ND, but I was unable to attend. Last year, I won my section and attended Bakersfield State again. I won my first match there to the #12 wrestler in CA in 24 seconds. I attended Nationals for the first time with the team representing the State of California, my record that year was 0-2 Freestyle and 1-2 Greco. So far in my junior year of high school, I have attended Bakersfield State and have been invited to be a member of the dual team for the State of California.
This team will travel to Tulsa, OK June 16- June 25 and Fargo, ND this upcoming July 13-22. This will be my first time being on a dual team and participating in the Oklahoma Junior Duals.
Below are my budget items and how I plan to use the money raised here.
Deposit for Junior Duals Team - $400 (due April 17th)
Rest of Payment (Include 3 Day Camp in OK, travel to and from OK, ground transportation in OK accommodations for 9 nights, meals, national team gear) - $600 (due May 20th)
Deposit for Nationals CA Team - $1000 (due May 15th)
Rest of Payment (Includes conditioning camp, travel to and from ND, ground transportation in ND, accommodations for 9 nights, meals, team gear) - $2500 (due May 27th)
GRAND TOTAL: $4,500
I am asking for your support in helping me chase my Olympic dream. Being apart of the California Junior Duals Team is just one step closer to that dream becoming a reality.
