The wrestling team took 2nd place out of 23 teams at the San Pasqual Invitational Saturday. 23
We had three individual champions:
Nick Veeder (won the Outstanding Upper-weight MVP)
Just a quick word on Nick Veeder: He joined the team as a sophomore and spent his entire season ineligible. He was fat and quite frankly, completely un-athletic and awkward. We convinced him to become fully committed to our program. He has had such an amazing turn around. He is now a great student is in much better shape, and has started winning tournaments after not even placing in any last season. He has 3 tournament titles so far this year, and one runner-up finish. This Saturday he missed the announcement that he was named the OW because he was informing me of the finals schedule for next week. What a great and responsible young man he has turned into. He is exemplifying our program and school in a great way.
