The 99th Match is a message of hope, determination, and endurance, where the application of timeless principles yields its promised fruitcourage, personal achievement, and insights into why things are the way they are. The school is real. The events are real.  The odds are real. The 99th Match is about wrestling with real life.  Now more than ever is the time to consider its universal messages.

Excerpt

There was a noticeable sense of excitement and anticipation within the halls of Brentwood High School early Saturday morning as Michael Stevens walked swiftly toward the locker room to join the wrestling team for an away match at Smithtown. Today, history will be made, he thought enthusiastically. After years of undefeated wrestling team matches, we’ll have our shot at the one-hundredth this afternoon. Pausing momentarily and thinking more pensively, But first, we’ll have to beat Smithtown for the ninety-ninth.
