My first season as a wrestling coach has come to a close. I feel a little empty inside now that it’s all over.
We finished 10-5, with our last two wins against our rival schools, The University School and Hawken. We had one home meet, against US, and it was so very excellent to see a standing room only crowd. I know the guys will remember that for a long time.
It has been very satisfying to work with the guys on our team, especially the newbies. Guys who didn’t know the difference between a single leg and a half nelson at the start of the season have made huge strides. Maybe one of the biggest take aways for them will be the knowledge that they could meet the challenge. I know that was a big take home for me. Knowing that I could endure and persist gave me strength to face other challenges later in life.
And best of all, here.
