John's senior year of wrestling was off to a great start in December. I don't know what his record is at this point but he has considerably more wins than losses, and many of his wins have been pins. All of his hard work in the off-season seems to be paying off. He was also named one of the captains of the team, which was well-deserved. He's been a varsity wrestler since his freshman year and he works hard and always gives his best effort. It makes me sad that this is his last season of high-school wrestling--I'm really going to miss it in the future--but I'm excited for the opportunities ahead for him in college.
Most of our Saturdays from December to February are spent at big wrestling meets with multiple schools. This is the team warming up before one of their matches at their first big multi-team meet of the season. John had four wins (all pins) and one loss that day.
