2010 ICWL Championship Tournament - Michael Wins First Place

Well, he did it. An amazing weekend of wrestling ending with a first place finish in the 40lb Pee Wee division at the Methacton ICWL Novice Wrestling Tournament. Michael pinned all 3 of his opponents today and just did fantastic. I am so proud of the way he has been improving and applying the technique we have been teaching him. There were 10 guys in his weight bracket and Michael's record from this season before today was 16-7 so he got the first seed. His first and second match both ended with Michael pinning his opponents in the first period. His 3rd and final match went 3 periods with a crying breakdown from his opponent in the second period giving Michael a 1-2 minute break. He pinned his opponent in the 3rd period and won first place. 5-0 for the weekend. He was so happy and very proud - as am I.

Here are the videos of all three bouts:
