Now for TY he was in the 35 lb weight class, the first round he got a by which means basically they gave him a freebie . In order for Ty to get a medal he needed to win two matches. Well the first match he got pinned. The second match was against one his friends from our wrestling club and Ty pinned him. It was really fun to watch those two together. So he has one more match to win if he wants to get a medal, the match starts out really good he's doing really well against the kid , then the ref blows the whistle for a break. Well TY thinks he's calling the match and that he has lost, so he bursts into tears even though we explane that it's not over he still has a chance. He continues to cry so finally they do call the match because he can't stop crying. Even 30 minutes later when we are now home he is still crying. It was a very trying experience hopefully things will go better at the next tournament.
So Jaden and Ty went to their first wrestling tournament. I was a very nervous mom watching them participate. So it turned out that Jaden was the only kid his age in the 70lb weight class, so automatically got first place. Which he is very proud of! So they bumped him up to the 75lb weight class, that way he at least got a chance to wrestle. Since this was his first tournament he really didn't know what to expect, he did pretty good but he didn't win any matches. But he could care less about that because he got a medal anyways. So he walked away a very happy kid!
