The summer passed quickly and I started school again. I had a fresh start this time, and I had a bunch of friends at practice. The wrestling season started up, and although I still wasn't exactly up to par with any state champions, I still had a lot of fun.Time came for the district tournament. I was pretty confident but still nervous at the same time. The next day we arrived at the school where the tournament was being held. My first match didn't go so well, the other wrestler ended up beating me by one point, we never got close to pinning each other. I had a lot of time in between my next match, so I thought about what I was going to do, and I decided that I was going to do whatever it took to win. The referee called my name over the speaker and I got ready for my next match. I walked onto the mat and shook the other wrestler's hand, and the match started. A few minutes went by and I could hear all my friends shouting "go go go!" which was a great energy boost. I ended up pinning the guy in the last period. It was a great feeling when the ref raised my hand. At the end of the day I was glad that I didn't quit when the going got tough, the reward was well worth it.
