    I don’t remember the exact date, but it was during my freshman year, after a wrestling match against Kentwood high school. We were the two best wrestling teams in our division. So, knowing how big this match was, the whole wrestling advertised and promoted it all week. Our efforts paid off because that following Friday the stands were packed. Students from both schools came to support, but one side was going to leave disappointed. Towards the end of the night we were down 7 points, there were two

    sophomore year when I joined wrestling. I never expected myself to join a male-dominated sport. However, wrestling ended up making a huge impact in my life because it taught me to have a positive mindset, not to give up easily, always work hard for what you want, and many more. It was part of wrestling that made me who I am today. More importantly, it created a second family and home for me. Wrestling requires both mental and physical aspects. When I joined wrestling, I weighed about 102 pounds.

    wrestle. I thankfully made the right choice in deciding to wrestle in high school. Coming into the season I had no intentions to wrestle heavyweight as a freshman because I had only wrestled for a year and I didn’t have a lot of experience with wrestling.

    sweaty guys grab each other? Who doesn’t? This is the general idea of wrestling. I have heard this several times from my peers and I laugh every time that someone comments like that. Wrestling is more than just a sport, it is a lifestyle. Wrestling has taught me more than just hard work and dedication. Wrestling is one of those sports that you just so happen to have your summer body in the winter and vice versa. During wrestling you have to lose weight, spend countless hours waiting in between matches

    There are many definitions of wrestling and this mine, a sport about trying to hold the opponent to the ground, usually according to certain rules and regulations. Before becoming a part of the wrestling team, I hold hardly any self confidence. I am extremely shy, I do not like it when someone calls on me, or standing up for myself. A new week is beginning, nothing is changing. Walking into the wrestling room I still feel the same as I do everyday. My heart pumps hard, palms begin to sweat, and I

    I was not ready. That was always my excuse. But I never knew how much fun it was to lose. Wrestling was a sport I have wanted to do since at least my sixth grade year, if not earlier. Physical contact sports always intrigued me, and I wanted nothing more than to play them. Hockey, football, soccer, wrestling, they all appealed to me in more ways than one, but my mother only ever let me play soccer. She had that old fashioned thinking, and believed that girls should be cheerleaders and volleyball

    people hate to talk about their failures, and try to avoid it at all cost. Having participated in the interscholastic sport of wrestling, I have been given many opportunities to succeed or fail. I generally succeed most of the time. But I have failed, and failed at important times. What I do with these failures is more important than the wins.

    My First Wrestling Match There were about two weeks before my first wrestling match. After a tough practice, I went to check my weight like everyone else does, and my heart sunk as I realize that I am six pounds over my weight class. The weight class I am wrestling in is one hundred and thirteen pounds, but I weigh one hundred and nineteen. I was very nervous that my coach would find out and be displeased with me. I began to worry because being six pounds over meant that I could only eat a little

    Walking down through the tunnel of the Hershey Arena has been one of my most decorated moments in my high school career. Last March I had the amazing opportunity of reaching the State Tournament for wrestling. Not only was it the first time I have reached the state tournament, but also Scranton Prep’s first wrestler. Walking through the tunnel and hearing the loud roar of the stadium as they announced my match, something that is so unbelievably unexplainable left me with a stomach full of butterflies

    Professional wrestling, for better or for worse, has always paid heavy attention to the physiques of those who step into the ring. The fans like extremes, or at least that’s the theory.
