Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts


Not many teens want to do wrestling because when they think of wrestling people think about being weak and not physically ready for it. When that’s not what all wrestling is all about. Junior Kevin Rodriguez is in wrestling with a few answers.


“To try something new. Just to have some experience on something new,” said Rodriguez.

Even though it was his first time going it was a good experience. Winning matches and coming 2nd in city and was qualified for state it was good experience and he plans on going even further this year.


“Cma won by 1 44-43,” said Rodriguez.

Coach Curin had 4 players that couldn’t play, so for every player that couldn’t play had to give the other team 6 points. So he had to give them 24 points before the match even started.


“We did really well, to be honest and they tried their best. I felt bad because I didn’t make weight,” said Rodriguez

Kevin felt as if he would’ve made weight and was able to wrestle he could’ve help his team defend their title.


“Working out before the game trying to make weight,” said Rodriguez.

Working out before the match trying to lose pounds he was off by 2 pounds and had to sit and watch his teammates wrestle. Something that made him angry not being able to help the team.


This day not only made him think about them losing it also makes him think about what he can do to make the team better. Trying to stay in shape and so he wouldn’t have any problems next time around when they have another meet.
