He ended up getting 2nd, so it was a great day!
This past weekend we went to Aberdeen for their tournament. We always hope that Mason will not get put into a 5-man bracket as this means that he will have to wrestle more and be more tired out, along with us being one of the last people to leave the tournament. So far, we haven't been so lucky. Oh well, chalk it up to more experience, right?!
He successfully pinned his first 3 kids. We thought the last kid wasn't going to be too tough, but he proved us wrong. Mason and he ended up going into sudden death overtime and Mason lost by 2 points. He was pretty bummed (as were Craig and I), but he did get 2nd place for the day, which we think is pretty darn good!
We also got a very pleasant surprise on Monday morning when we found out that he got a nice big picture in the sports section of the Aberdeen American News! We were definately proud parents and I think he was feeling pretty good about himself, even if he did lose the last match.
