It was a loooooong day. This tournament wasn't that big, so it shouldn't have lasted as long as it did, but it was really disorganized for some reason and was just dragging on and on. It was really hot in there and everyone was getting grumpy, lol. Many people got sick of waiting so long between matches that they packed up and left. I felt bad that Owen came with us to this one....not such a great day to get a feel of the wrestling tournament life, haha. Oh well, alls well that ends well.
Just like the previous week, no placement, but he won the first of his three matches.
Anthony's 1st match - a win.
Anthony has wrestled this boy in the past and they have both formed a nice friendship. Isn't that awesome!? Hayden is a sweet boy and it's so fun watching them wrestle and the good sportsmanship they have between each other. Anthony gave him our address so they can become pen-pals. It will be fun to see them grow their friendship over wrestling in the years to come.
Anthony's 2nd match - a loss.
Anthony worked so hard during this match! He got out of a few near pins, scoring a fair amount of points, but ultimately his opponent scored more points by the end of the match.
Anthony's 3rd match - a loss.
This was a quick match. Anthony got taken down and pinned during the first quarter of the match. Unfortunately he wasn't able to get himself out from being pinned like his previous match. It was a tough one for sure!
Great work, Anthony! You've done so well listening to Coach and putting into practice the moves you've been working hard on.
One more tournament left! The big Spokane one!
