Hunter's First Wrestling Tournament

Hunter had his first (of many, I'm sure!) wrestling tournament last weekend. I'm so proud of my boy!

He only had two matches because there was only one other boy in his weight class. He lost both of his matches, but he didn't get pinned, so he was happy with that! lol! I think Hunter needs to be a little more aggressive because he becomes very submissive to his opponent. I am still SO proud of him though! :)



He received the silver medal though and let me tell you, it might as well be a gold medal as far as he is concerned! He has worn that medal everywhere since he got it! I have had to make him take it off for his baths! lol!



Aleah was quite the handful while cheering her brother on. She said she was a monkey here.


She was getting tired here and kept wanting her Daddy. He couldn't hold her much because he was coaching.


Hunter has another tournament tomorrow. Wish him luck!!

  2. My husband was seated to win the state wrestling tournament in high school when he instead decided to go to Thespian conference... where he met me! He reminds me of how glad he was that he made that decision, even though he missed out on winning! :)

  9. Awesome job Hunter! Any medal is exciting, I'm not surprised he wears it everywhere. My kids got the "complimentary medal" after their baseball season and even though it really meant nothing more than the fact that they completed the season, my 5-year-old wore it everywhere for a long time. A silver medal is awesome!

  13. I love this! I only have girls so we will never get to experience this unless my 2 year old ends up wanting to do sports. It is amazing how such young kids can be taught a sport like this. Good job for him!

  30. Way to go, Hunter! I miss going to wresting tournaments. My younger brother wrestled from 4 years old until he was a sophomore in high school. Hopefully one of my boys will pick up the love for the sport from him!

  36. I'm sure the being less submissive will come with time. If he sticks with this I've heard that high school wrestlers can get great scholarships!
