That's My Men....

So in my last post I referred to Josh and Mike as "My Boys," so after another stellar weekend, I decided they earned the title of "My Men!"

Recognize the kid on top the podium? Yep, Josh lost in the finals to the same kid as last week. All four of these boys move on to next weekends state tournament. Brackets will be posted online later today, so we don't know who Josh wrestles yet. We are hoping for a possible rematch in the championship, because the third time is the charm, right?

Yep, Mike repeated last week's performance too, earning the respect of his fellow coaches to earn the Region 1 Coach of the Year Honors. And yes, he can have a chance to win at state too:)

Even better, the whole family got to be together to celebrate these honors. But with two silly girls, this was the best of the photos we got! State begins Friday, but with Kellen's work schedule he can't make it down until Saturday. Some grandparents and other friends are planning on coming to cheer Josh on too. Should be a memorable finish to his high school wrestling career.

To top it off, all nine boys wrestlers that made regionals made state, and we are pretty sure that's an OHHS record. Two girls also qualified for the girls state tournament, which is also held at the Tacoma Dome.
