Wrestling is a sport that you either hate or love. I tried wrestling last year and when I went to the first practice and absolutely hated it. I went home and and immediately knew that I was doing hockey instead. This year I knew I could not do hockey again because I would need to make varsity. I really didn’t want to do basketball so I decided to give wrestling another shot.
This time I absolutely loved practice, I don’t know what changed but suddenly I knew that I would keep doing wrestling. So far this year I think I have improved and have had a lot of fun. I had my first match on Wednesday and got pinned easily by my, fierce and agressive, openent. On Friday I had a second match, I was extremely nervous because we were wrestling our school rivals and everyone had told me we were going to get crushed. I got lucky and was able to beat my openent 6-5. I was really happy that I was able to win and I am excited to continue wrestling this year.
