McNary High School’s wrestling camp for kids in kindergarten through middle school kicks off Monday, Oct. 25.

The camp runs three weeks – Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays – through Wednesday, Nov. 10,  and meets from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m. in the McNary upper gym. Cost is $25 per child of $40 for a family.

Last year, several of the camp participants competed and placed in regional, state and national tournaments, said Jason Ebbs, head coach of the McNary High School wrestling program.

“We had 6 kids travel to Pocatello, Idaho, and competed in an 11-state tournament and, from there, two  went on to compete in a ntional tournament in Orem, Utah,” Ebbs said.

Sign-up forms are available at Keizer 7-11s, Starbucks, Roth’s IGA and Albertsons.

Participants will learn about the agility, techniques and strength essential to the sport and focus on a team philosophy of commitment and can-do attitude.

Camps are designed to spark interest in wrestling for those who have never tried the sport and hone the skills of veteran wrestlers.

Ulta, a chain of beauty product stores, has opted to locate at Keizer Station.

They are expected to occupy the southern portion of the former Wickes Furniture location at the development. Marshalls, a discount clothing retailer, has already signed to take over the remaining portion of the building. [MAP: 1]

The lease on the 10,000 square foot space was signed earlier this month.

Jack Steinhauer, director of acquisitions and development for Donahue Schriber – Keizer Station’s owner – said his firm is “pretty excited to finally get these guys in the center.

“It’s a great tenant to add to the mix,” Steinhauer said. “It’s going to bring a lot more synergy … Really, it’s almost like a re-grand opening. These guys are going to open fairly close to each other – Old Navy, Marshalls and Ulta.”

He expects the store to open sometime in the first half of 2011.

Ulta did not return messages seeking comment.

Headquartered in Bolingbrook, Ill., the company operates about 356 stores in 38 states, according to its website. Company stock is publicly traded on NASDAQ.
