Wrestling!



Benja wrestled in the Wasatch Tournament last saturday. Wrestling is serious business here. The stores are empty during "the wrestles" --its the best time to shop. Kelleen has a hard time watching Benj wrestle. I think she would probably go down there and throw the other kid if she thought he was hurting her Benja. All sports help teach values such as teamwork, fair play, rules, etc, but there's something about wrestling that builds character when you have to go out on the mat all alone. Here's a clip (sorry for my yelling) of Benja's match against a wrestler from Delta. Benj won the match and took third at the tournament.

Woohoo! Go Benja! That is so great taking 3rd place in such a big tournament. I would definitely be claustrophobic.

Awesome job, Benj! I used to watch your Dad wrestle and really gained an appreciation for how difficult it is. I'm proud of you!
