This year, the State of Illinois has mandated PARCC testing for all students enrolled in a junior English class and/or Algebra II. PARCC testing takes place two times during the year.

East Aurora High School senior Tim Young wins state wrestling championship!

CHAMPAIGN – East Aurora High School senior Tim Young Jr. won the state championship in wrestling Saturday evening. Young won a 7-2 decision, capping a nearly undefeated senior season.

    “I’m so happy for Tim Young,” said East Aurora High School Assistant Principal and Athletic Director Dennis Renner. “He is a great wrestler and an outstanding person. He is one of the most respectful and humble athletes I have ever known. He deserves all the accolades and admiration that comes with this championship.”

    After falling behind 2-0 early in the first period of the 195-pound weight class, Young shut out his opponent the rest of the match. It was tied 2-2 at the end of the first period, and Young led 5-2 after the second.

    Young told the Beacon-News that the key to his title was: “Hard work and no days off.”

The state championship concludes an incredible year for Young. Last season, he finished fourth at sectionals, narrowly missing a chance to go downstate.

    Over the summer, he earned a national title in Greco-Roman wrestling. He was named the Outstanding Wrestler at the FILA Cadet Nationals held May at the University of Akron.

    Based on that performance, Young was selected as one of three wrestlers to compete in the FILA Cadet World Championships in Slovakia. Young finished fifth in Slovakia, the top performance by a U.S. wrestler.

    Young finished his senior season with 39 wins and only one loss. He was the regional and sectional champion in the 195-pound weight class, and runner up in the Upstate Eight Conference Meet.

Young advanced to the state finals with a 10-4 decision Friday night in the State Farm Arena on the University of Illinois campus. It was Young’s second win of the day. On Friday afternoon, he posted a dominating 19-9 win in the quarterfinals match. He started the tournament Thursday by earning a technical fall against his opponent in 72 seconds.

   Young is the school’s first state wrestling champion since 1983.

On Friday afternoon, he posted a dominating 19-9 win in the quarterfinals match. He started the tournament Thursday by earning a technical fall against his opponent in 72 seconds.

   The IHSA state wrestling finals begin at 5:30 p.m. with the Athlete Grand March. The championship matches will begin on three mats following the March. The matches will start with the 126-pound weight class. Young’s match could start at approximately 7 p.m.

   More information about the state wrestling meet can be found at: http://www.ihsa.org/SportsActivities/BoysWrestling.aspx .

   Some of the state matches will be shown live on www.ihsa.tv (with a subscription fee).

   Young now has 38 wins and only one loss for the season. He was the regional and sectional champion in the 195-pound weight class, and runner up in the Upstate Eight Conference Meet.

East HS has a new web address!

 As part of making our school webpages easier to use, all schools now have a shortened URL address. East Aurora High School's website can be accessed at www.d131.org/easthigh. District information can still be found at www.d131.org.



Community Service Opportunities

 In order to graduate, every Tomcat must earn at least 5 community service hours for every semester in which they have been enrolled.  For most students, this means they will need to earn a total of 40 community service hours by April 1 of their senior year.  Students can sign up for a text service that will inform them about various community service opportunities by texting 81010 and typing @310d8 in the message field.  Students can also reach out to our Community Service Coordinator, Ms. Courtney Monaghan, for information about ongoing service opportunities as well as special events.
