My freshman year of high school was really hard for me because I had to lose weight, get in shape, and learning how to be more coordinated and less clumsy. During that year I got so much better even though it was so hard my the end of the year I had won more matches than I had lost so that was pretty good my record by the end of the year was 12 wins and 7 loses even though I was I was wrestling at a higher weight class that I was supposed to. I was wrestling at 185 even though my weight class was 165 because my team we didn't have a 185 so we had to make the line up better and I had to go up at weight class. My first year I made it to regionals at 165 which it goes district then regionals than state in the state of Texas for wrestling. My sophomore year I kept getting better I would go really hard in every single practice because I wanted to make it to state and I knew I need to get way better. I did better that year my record was 19 wins and 13 loses and I went 165 most of the year, but I still didn't achieve what I wanted I just made it to regionals again and I was very disappointed in myself and I knew I had to work even better so all summer I worked really hard and I would go to school every single day and I would workout with the football players because I need to get stronger and faster. By the start of junior year I knew it was going to be a good year I was very confident in my abilities and even my body. That year I went 165 all year and my record was 26 wins 12 loses which was pretty good in my opinion and also I made it to state! I didn't do so good at state, but I was still happy that I had made it and I was there. By my senior year in high school I still loved the sport but I was getting tired of it because it's a really hard sport and it takes a toll on your body but I said to myself I have done this for 3 years might as well finish up high
