Enter in this year. We have been battling some focus issues in school so we were interested to see how one more year of maturity would work on the mat. Our club this year gave us suggestions on which tournaments would be best for what level are kiddos are at. Andrew is still level one and I am sure we will stay there for the rest of this season. I was debating about entering the Waubaunsee tournament since it was so early in the season, but it was rated as very good for novice kiddos so we entered and off we went! Andrew was weighing in at 63 lbs which was square in the middle of the 60-64 lb weight class. There was a possibility that he might have to wrestle some 8 year olds if there weren't enough 6 year olds at his weight. Lucky for him, I am pretty sure they were all 6 year olds.
The video is below, and that folks is our very first WIN!!!! 17-0 tech fall win! I was shaking so badly because at the end of last tournament last year, he almost won and got pinned in the final seconds of the last period of that match. He was so pumped, and so were we! It was obvious that he still has a lot to work on, but things are starting to slowly come together!
And then this happened.
