Going for gold

We had an awesome result at the competition Saturday.

Congratulations to Olivia for winning the gold medal in her division. Olivia lost her first match however she regrouped and won by submission in her next 2 matches.  Both submissions were collar chokes in the standing position.  I was so impressed that she remembered what I had coached the team weeks ago.  We went over setting up the choke in the standing position if the take down wasn't working.  Well done Olivia!

Our other students fought hard and showed everyone that they were a force to be reckoned with.

Our second Olivia  "O'Lilly" had a huge bracket to fight through.  She entered the mat with a warrior spirit and went right to work.  I was so proud to see her truly enjoy her matches.  Her opponents were very skilled, but that didn't slow her down at all. 

A big shout goes to Olaf for fighting in his first comp.  He was super nervous when he arrived at the event.  After his first match the nerves were gone and he went on the have some very intense matches. Great work Olaf! 

Hendryk went in guns blazing and had 2 tough matches. Well done for having a great attitude and exemplary sportsmanship.
