PINnacle Wrestling school headed out to Virginia Beach, VA to compete in the toughest youth dual meet competition in the country, the Virginia Holiday Duals. There were 48 teams from all over the United States, many were the best from there respective states, and the others were teams from that had guys from around the country. PINnacle was one of a select few Club teams. The boys all competed hard, and won some great matches!
PINnacle wrestlers were seeded 2nd in there pool(12 pools of 4), but came out on top by beating the defending Gold pool Silver Medalist Minions team(2nd in Silver pool), along with the national Terps Contender(3rd in Bronze) team, and Team Delaware(2nd Copper). After winning the pool PINnacle was put in the Gold pool against the 11 best teams in the country. Our 2nd best match of the tournament was the win against Oklahoma in the first round of the Gold pool. After starting off 4-0, we took some lumps. We did have another big win over regional rival Legends of Gold. We ended up taking 8th overall out of 48 teams. More importantly, there were many things the coaches learned about our wrestlers as we got to coach 160 matches!
The kids had a great time at the ocean, including going swimming in December on the last day, with Dolphins 30 yards from us playing in the ocean themselves.
Overall, it was a great experience for our youth wrestlers. Congrats to all who competed!
