 Henrietta, NY ~ Fairport High School, Penfield High School, Webster Thomas High School, and Rush Henrietta High School competed in their Third Annual Takedown Cancer Duals on Saturday, January 17, 2015 at Rush Henrietta High School. Unlike the previous two years, this year featured Camp Good Days' campers as Honorary Coaches at the duals. Each team was assigned an Honorary Coach, all of which are participants in the programs and services offered at Camp Good Days and Special Times.

Honorary coaches had the opportunity to meet their players and coaches prior to the match, and were on the sideline rooting on their team during the duals. During the week, they attended a practice for their team, and were presented with a wrestling singlet, signed by each player on the team. On the day of the duals, the campers were in the locker rooms with their team before the match, led their respective teams into the gym, and were involved in a ceremony before the duals.

The Honorary Coaches are: Aidan Anderson, age 10, from Caledonia, NY, and Jeremiah Anderson, age 8, from Caledonia NY (Webster Thomas); Marcus Wilson, age 11, from Fairport, NY (Fairport High School); Kaleb Ferguson, age 11, from Rochester, NY (Penfield); Charlie Baldo, age 11 from Brockport, NY, and PJ Baldo, age 8, from Brockport, NY (Rush-Henrietta).
