The Taylorville High School Wrestling team is holding their Armed Forces Night Wednesday night at the Taylorville West Gym. Taylorville High School Wrestling Coach Lee Mateer said it’s an event that the wrestling team has been doing for a little while now, however this year’s event has extra special meaning, with the event falling on the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks, and with the team holding a special fundraiser for Maggie Bilyeu, a THS graduate injured in a Taliban attack in November.

 

 

Mateer said the event will feature a 50-50 raffle as well as a donation bucket for the fundraiser, and said how you can be sure that those funds are going directly to Maggie.

 

 

The event will have a posting of the colors at 5:45, with wrestling starting at 6 pm.
