Expecting to see every opponent at the top of their games.
Our 120 lber placed 3rd at 106 lbs last year, but has been a bit small at 120 lbs this year...today he gave the returning 113 lb state champ a run for his money. I think the final score ended up being 8-7...was a great match...Our 120 lber has seemed undersized all season, but actually looked like a 120 lber today...I think he has grown physically into the spot.
If we get our heavyweight through, I will be so pumped. He has come so far from last season.
Now off to districts for my 8th grade bro tomorrow...hoping for an all-around good weekend for both of them.
Today was fun.
Good deal. I was looking at last year's district results and saw Assumption was in district 1 with y'all. I knew your 120 pounder was tough, but thought he might catch a tough bracket with Green and the Assumption kid (Gould). Just top 2 advance, right? That's why I was thinking it would be a crucial weight. But Im glad to hear they aren't in the same district this year.
