Tonight was our banquet for Varsity Wrestling and I am a proud mama!
My son was the only freshman to make the team this year. There was one 7th grader at 99lbs. There are 15 kids who wrestle first string and mine was one of only 5 who had 25 or more wins, placed 7th in the section for his weight and has now officially lettered in Varsity for 3 years in a row and in 3 schools!
I am praying that it continues on next year!
As much as I am proud of him, I am so proud of the entire team and coaching staff-they are out of this world!!!
This year we went from a nobody team in class DD to Class B with state ranking and winning Class B championship over 17 other teams-a couple of which are amazing!
My son has been wrestling for 11 years now and this year I will watch the first of the kids who have wrestled all 11 years graduate-plus a cousin we're close to. The wrestler that's been with him from day one has been through some really rough times and we've been pretty close to him. He's an amazing kid and he's very much self made-not so great parents. I have helped him to get into the alt ed program so he could wrestle and graduate. There is so much history there. I am so far beyond proud of him. The way I am handing it? You'd think he was my own kid!!!
I made the slideshow today and bawled the whole time... Then we played the slideshow-ad I cried like a baby. THEN they handed out the awards and I cried some more. It's not even graduation yet!!! I am never going to survive this. What the heck am I going to do when my last two and the foster graduate? TRAIN WRECK???
