Weekend of wrestling ends perfect season

I finished the final days of my winter break shooting a few of my brother’s wrestling meets and tournaments before heading back to school on the 9th. Here is an overview of the weekend.

Thursday, Jan. 5, 2012 marked the start of a weekend of wrestling that ended Tyler’s previously perfect season. Thursday was a home meet at Thornwood High school in South Holland, Ill., against Lincoln Way West. The match ended with Tyler getting the pin with a 1 minute and 3 seconds left on the clock extending his record to 12-0.

Friday marked his first loss against Bradley-Bourbonnais. Tyler wrestled up during the meet going from his usual weight class of 126 to 132. The match ended 5-6 putting his record at 12-1.

Saturday was a double elimination tournament hosted by Bradley-Bourbonnais. Tyler lost his first match to a pin in the first period.

Losing the first match put him in the wrestle back bracket with a chance to take fifth place. In the next match he won with a pin.

Tyler eventually took sixth place loosing his final match in the tournament with a record at the end of the meet of 13-3.
