56: Mission Mountain Classic

Zoran getting one of his three pins in day two of Mission's wrestling tournament.
Israel did really well on Friday night. He ended up taking third. The only match he lost was his very first one (which sent him to the loser's bracket) and it was against the only kid that has beat him this year, the Superior kid he lost to in Plains. It was too bad he faced that kid (who won the tournament) in his first match. Sort of an unlucky bracket setup, since he never even got a chance to wrestle the second place kid.

Zoran did really well too, but he was pretty disappointed. He lost his first match ever. The kid from Bonner was a good wrestler, but they were pretty evenly matched– he just lost by points. Zoran won all the rest of his matches with pins and still got second in the tournament, but he didn't even want the ribbon. It's tough being a perfectionist.
