When disaster strikes it is often the kindness shown by others that means the most to those who are recovering. On Sunday the Oak Park and River Forest High School wrestling team went to Washington, Ill. to aide in tornado relief efforts.

Last night one of the people the team helped tweeted, "I can't thank these guys enough for cleaning all of the debris from my house," along with a picture of the team and other volunteers.

It is wonderful to see that the OPRF wrestling team and coaches traveled more than 100 miles away from home to help out.

Go Huskies!
