Neil tried to get to 145 but didn't like the way he felt when he cut weight, especially when he hit a plateau. This forced him onto the JV squad. Many kids quit when they don't get what they want. Neil just continued to work hard. He was a team leader and went out there and worked hard on the mat. He has an undefeated JV season for two years in a row now. He did get a chance to wrestle Varsity for a home dual where he won his match with a major decision and he went with the Varsity team to a tournament where he finished 6th. He went 4-4 which was a huge improvement from last year when he didn't win a single match. Unfortunately, he came home with a concussion which left him out of the last big tournament of the season. We are so proud of his work ethic and that he never quit even when others told him they would.
