B's Freshman Wrestling Season

B is a freshman this year and we are almost at the end of wrestling season.  He is wrestling varsity this year at 113 lbs., which is difficult not only because he is a freshman, but also because it is the most competitive weight class in the state.
This is one of his matches from last weeked.  B is in the black.

He was behind in points coming into the second period, but the other boy make a mistake and B capitalized on it for the pin. :)

He has districts this weekend.  I will be happy for wrestling season to be over.  B has cut weight and I don't think his body is handling it well.  He has been sick for the past 3 weeks.  He had the flu the first week, threw up all night during the second week, and is currently wrapped up in a blanket on the couch with a cold this third week.

He had fun this wrestling season and got to go away to two overnight competitions for the first time.  He has wrestled since he was 4 years old and really likes it.

  1. I am putting Noodle in wrestling next year. Tonight is the last night in Sunnyside to try out. However Christian doesn't really want to do it and I was told today that 5 is the age to start here. :( So next year I am at least having 1 kid in it. Great job B.
