MAWA Wrestling Tournament

It was an interesting day to say the least :) Today was my debut wrestling match after 19 years of not wrestling. I have to say that I didn't do too bad, but I definitely could have done better. I weighed in on Friday night at 177lbs and spent the weekend somewhat kind of nervous about today. The tournament was held at Souderton High School and was the MAWA (Mid Atlantic Wrestling Association) qualifier tournament. I wrestled in the Open class which meant that anyone in that class was born in 1993 or before. Of course I ended up wrestling a 19 year old who currently wrestles for Ursinus College. I held my own for the entire match and only gave up one point which cost me the win, but it was a great experience for a 37 year old. I'm glad I did it and maybe I will train a bit for it next year....Video below:

*Update* My buddy Steve filmed the match from a different angle and just gave me the video:
