Upper Perkiomen Wrestling Tournament - 1st Place

Great day of wrestling today for Michael! This was Michael's final novice tournament at 45lbs and he won all three matches. The tournament was held round robin style, so there were four wrestlers including Michael in his class. In the first match he pinned his opponent. The second match was against a kid he had wrestled back in November at the Kutztown Tournament. The kid caught Michael back then in a cement mixer and pinned him. Michael has definitely improved since that tournament and soundly beat him 7-3 (much to the dismay of the boy's father). His third and final match he also won by a pin, although he came off the mat with some bruises and scratches. I'm very proud of how hard he has been wrestling this season and we look forward to the ICWL Open Tournament in two weeks which will be his final tournament of the season.
