We thought this tournament would be a lot tougher. We probably should have stayed local, teams are a little tougher around here.
That was one of our goals. We focus on one goal at a time, one meet at a time.
The kids are resilient. They're moving on. They're handling it better than the adults. They're exhibiting a level of maturity that makes me proud.
The competition level jumps ten fold. Not only are you wrestling a quality opponent, you have the formula (used to fill out the bracket) and you have to battle the demons inside yourself. You have to overcome a lot of pressure.
