Meet Honour.

Meet Honour.

A couple years ago, a very excited 7 year-old girl brought home a flyer from school. It was the fall of 2015, the flyer was for the Tracy Wrestling Club that was starting up and would be practicing at her K-12 school. She instantly knew she wanted to give wrestling a try so she told her parents all about it. Her parents were enthusiastic and supportive as they had been looking for an individual sport for her to join. Soon after, she was on the wrestling mat. She was with like minded kids, most of which were boys, learning basic take-downs and escapes.

Now 10-years-old and standing 5′-3″, Honour has been wrestling in both Folkstyle and Freestyle competition for the past two years; with the exception of a mid-season knuckle break that put her out of commission mid-season last year.

After receiving a clean bill of health, Honour returned to the mat full force this year. Despite a couple discouraging matches against some really tough opponents, Honour remained focused and determined to excel.

Her determination to do her best earned Honour a Second Place finish at the Tri-Valley Elite “Snake Pit” Wrestling tournament this past Sunday in Livermore, California. This was Honour’s first time taking a silver medal. She worked extremely hard to win her first three matches by pinning her opponents and only lost her final match during the fourth round of her bracket.

After her silver place finish, Honour told her mom, “Mom, I’m not even tired! I feel great!” Not surprising given the effort Honour puts in at practice. 

Congratulations Honour on your first second place finish!
