C decided he wanted to go to De Pere to wrestle today. It was a tough bracket. His first match, he was tied 4-4 until about 3 seconds left. The kid scored 2 points with a reversal to beat him. We know they'll be in a tournament together next weekend, so there's always another shot.
He got stuck in his second match by a kid who was a state champion last year.
And in his final match, he lost 9-1, but went all three periods - the only kid today to do so with this opponent.
Character building, for sure. He's exhausted and disappointed. But he worked so hard, I think he'll be proud of his day before too long. That fourth place award may never see the light of day, though. But then again, that's okay too.
