Houston Nationals

What an amazing weekend of wrestling. As a club, we earned lots of medals and learned some huge lessons through wrestling.  

I was most proud of the team during the dual team battles. Our team was severely young for the competition but our wrestlers put their foot on the line and battled with some very strong, recruited teams from across the region. I promise, our kids gained more from that experience than any other team in the building. Plus...they were still wrestling after the dual tournament was done . 

Two wrestlers particularly shined this weekend, Aquilles Morales Fernando and Mia Cayard. 

Aquilles was the lone vici Wrestler to go undefeated in the dual tournament and get bonus points in all of his matches. He throws, shoots, pins and does it all very fast! It always awesome watching him!  

Mia won her bracket with zero challenge. So she wrestled two boys brackets.....and placed in both of them being severely outsized against boys that are a year older. She exhibits courage with a cheerful smile that wins over fans.  

Back on the mat in two weeks! Get in training and let’s try and improve on our individual performances. As a team, we placed 15th of 80 team. 

Next up; #HOT Heart of Texas in Austin.
