Gary Knutzen award for sportsmanship by the Skagit Island Officials. I was proud to see that the years Mike has instilled sportsmanship, integrity, etc., in his athletes and fellow coaches, was honored.
Next proud moment; Josh was wrestling the number two kid in the state at the 3A level (Josh is currently #6). His opponent came out very aggressive, and very quickly, had Josh fighting for his life on his back. And fight Josh did, until the bloody nose put a stop to it! The night of wrestling was to be on the Internet for friends and family to watch, but wouldn't you know it, it stopped streaming when Josh was on. Not sure if it came back for any of the other matches. So I am posting it in three parts here. Please forgive me for the shaky screen and any moments he disappears from view. I was filming on my ipad while watching directly, so when it got exciting I wasn't exactly paying attention to the screen. You may also want to turn the volume down:)
Just as Josh's season is beginning to wind up, the girls' sports are just beginning. Kaia and I travel to Bellevue for her first meet tomorrow, and Kellen is taking Jaelyn to her first basketball game of the season, since Josh and Michael will be off wrestling. Thankfully it's a three day weekend so we will have time to relax and enjoy some time at home.
