Fort Worth Championship Tournament

Posted by Coach Foster on 12/10/2023

This week we had the privilege of participating in the Fort Worth Championship Wrestling Tournament.   Every FWISD school with a wrestling team was there competing for the rights to say "we are the best" in the district.  Dallas Samuell, Dallas Adamson, and Fort Worth Country Day also joined the competition and made the challenge of winning even more difficult.  I'm extremely proud of our kids.  They often walk into places being underestimated and come out on top of all previous expectations. 

There are times on the mat you feel like quitting, your body is hurting, and you may even have scrapes and burns.  Your brain is telling you to quit, get pinned and give up.  Coaches are yelling at the top of their lungs, reminding you of different techniques and skills you may use to be successful.  The sweat is burning your eyes, and you look to the coach in your corner for sympathy.  Your coach responds to you with, "you have worked too hard to quit! If you want to win, you have to get up!"

At that very moment, you have two choices: make excuses that lead to you losing or dig deep and find what you need to win.  These guys found what they needed to win and THAT IS NOT EASY. We are not satisfied, because the kids set a goal to make it to the STATE FINALS.  Monday we will be back in our sweats and working towards those goals.  Thank you all who have helped our athletes be successful in the classroom and on the mat.

*Special thanks to Mrs. Patty and Cougar Corner.  We aren't successful without Cougar Corner
