There were 36 entries in Gallaher's division including wrestlers from Tennessee, New Jersey, New York, Michigan, Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, wrestling-mad Iowa and West Virginia.

To win the title Gallaher, undefeated in 65 middle school matches during his two-year career, had to win six consecutive matches.

Gallaher dusted off Dustin Osterloh of Frankfort, Ohio, 10-3, and eased past Angelo Malvestuto of Niagra Falls, N.Y., 11-0.

The semifinals produced a 9-0 victory over Bryce Rush of Tridelphia and in the finals he had tough match against Ryan Kemmerer of East Greenville, Pa., winning 4-2.

Other wrestlers from north central West Virginia and wrestling under coaches Ray Robe and Rickey Bailey of the East Fairmont Junior Wrestling Club who placed were Erick Hinerman, second at schoolboy 150 pounds, and Mason Bailey, fifth at schoolboy 96 pounds.

MVP Closes Out 1st Annual Fall Baseball League
Fall Baseball Picnic 2003
What a great way to end a great season!!!
On Sunday October 26th MVP closed out the 1st season of Fall Baseball with a picnic at the Indoor Facility including Food, Skills Competition and most of all FUN. This years League was comprised of players from both Morgantown and Clarksburg with participation over 100 strong in just our first year. Morgantown hadn't offered Fall Baseball for over five years and Clarksburg grew their league from under 40 to over 60 in just one year. "MVP is proud to have been able to be involved with Clarksburg Pony and that we were able to offer Fall Baseball to our kids in Morgantown this year, we look forward to next year" said Owner, Joe Testa. A special thanks goes out to the parents and volunteers for their help in making this season a success. Thank you Mrs. Mahoney (aka Keegan's Mom)for all the help organizing the picnic. This year's fall league began the beginning of September and ran through the end of October. With an emphasis on Instruction the league practiced twice a week with games on Sunday's. "We had the best group of kids and I had the most fun anyone could have coaching, I saw such an improvement in play throughout the season" said Jason Graham, Senior Hitting Instructor. MVP thanks you for all your support and hopes to see you this winter for our "All-Star Attitude" Camps beginning January 2nd.

MVP now a member of the National Pitching Association!
National Pitching Assoc.
The National Pitching Association was formed by leading coaches, athletes, and management teams to help pitchers of all ages safely develop to their fullest potential. In today's non-professional baseball programs, (youth, little league, college, etc.), too many pitchers get injured thus limiting their opportunity to continue playing baseball. Many times the desire to win has superceded what is best for a young athlete's development and future potential. This combined with general misinformation about what is good, better, or best for the development of young pitchers has seriously impaired or injured pitchers beyond rehabilitation. With this in mind, the National Pitching Association was formed to:

Gather the best research and perform new research
Change what we know and believe about what is best for pitchers
Share what we've learned and teach others to learn and use everyday

They have brought together the best advisory team and faculty available to help us learn more about how and when to pitch. Through scientific research, they are continually updating the basics of pitching. They focus on teaching: the mechanics of pitching, strength and conditioning requirements, nutritional necessities, as well as, the mental and emotional elements of the sport. They help develop the support group that the pitcher requires, including their parents and coaches. What they provide is unique and valuable; for the pitcher, the parents and the coach.

Wickid Performance
MVP Now Carries Wickid Gear
MVP is proud to announce we carry Wickid Wear.

What is Moisture Management Active System?

WICKid's Moisture Management Active System offers active people wicking performance & comfort which keeps them cool, fresh, energized, light and dry.

How does it work?

As the body temperature rises and sweat forms, WICKid's moisture management active system pulls moisture off the skin to the outside of the fabric which allows it to evaporate quickly.
Moisture is pulled away from the skin to the outside of the fabric by the combination of WICKid's micro-fiber fabric weave and finishing solution called Tempra-Dry
Wicking tests have proven products featuring MMAS to release more moisture then cotton
WICKid's MMAS allows active people to stay cool, fresh, energized, light and dry during those activities that require the best active people have to offer.
WICKid's MMAS allows body temperature to stay regulated in all climates and conditions.
Once your customers have experienced the coolness of WICKid they will never want to sweat in cotton again!
