1st Place at the 2010 Pottsgrove Wrestling Takedown Tournament

Michael had another great day of wrestling yesterday with an impressive first place finish and no takedowns were scored against him. It was the 7th annual Pottsgrove Takedown Tournament and he had 5 kids including himself in the 45lb Pee Wee division. It's run as a round robin tourney, so he had to wrestle all 4 opponents. The first 2 he wrestled are actually on his team and are both first year wrestlers, so he quickly won those. The last 2 kids were second year wrestlers like Michael and he also beat them soundly. His final match was against a kid he had wrestled a few times last year and they always had a good battle. I am so proud of how he is doing and I hope he keeps it up over the coming years. We have another tournament tomorrow hosted by the Pottsgrove Wrestling Club - The 2011 Pottsgrove Holiday Wrestling Tournament. The videos from the tournament are below:
