Words from Coach Horton

Greco is over for today, and I didn’t come away with the results I wanted. But, I was happy with my wrestling and my efforts! I had a nice headlock for a pin, but came up short against a multiple time world champ in the quarterfinals 2-1 in a brutal, tough match. Then in my first repecharge (wrestle back), I had the other multiple times champ and dropped another hard fought match 1-0.

Any one of us would have cruised to the finals in the top half of the bracket, but the blind draw had us grouped together. Nothing to do but get in the fight and see what happens!

Thanks for the awesome photos Robbert Cscsportsphotography Wijtman, I look forward to seeing the rest!
