It has been a long two weeks. Our Washington National Team began with a 5 day training camp in Cheney, Washington. We came home for a day and then spent eight days in Fargo, ND. The heat in Fargo was unbearable. There was a heat index of 110 one day that we were there. It sure made weight cutting easy for most as you were pouring with sweat upon stepping outside of the air-conditioned buildings.
Our team preformed well. We had one national champion and two other finalists. One of the finalist, Joey Palmer comes from my wrestling club “Bear Claw.” He is a very hard-working kid and his hard work paid off for him. The two pictures are of our one national champion Chandler Rogers from Spokane. I didn’t get an opportunity to take a lot of pictures while there because as coaches we stay pretty busy. The typical day starts at around 5:00 a.m. and ends around 7:00 p.m. We do that for 8 days! Needless to say, it was nice to be home last night and able to sleep in my own bed.
