Pinning down a victory

BYU-Idaho students wrestled at Campus Recreation’s wrestling tournament on Saturday, Nov. 5, at the BYU-Idaho Center.

The tournament featured seven men’s weight classes and two women’s weight classes.

“It has been years since I have actually competed, but it felt so good,” said Isaac Moss, a wrestler in the 141-pound weight class. “I mean, the competition is great, and this is just a fun time.”

Moss faced Richard Vasquez in his final match.

In the end, Moss defeated Vasquez and claimed victory in the 141-pound weight class.

“I mean, winning is not everything,” Moss said. “But it is always really fun to win when you have not wrestled in so long.”

According to Moss, the day did not start off easy for him.

“It took me a little bit to get going at first since I haven’t wrestled in competition for so long,” Moss said. “But once I got going, it felt good again.”

Abi Wolf, another participant in the tournament, wrestled in the 133-pound women’s weight class.

“I was really nervous about this match because it has been about four years since I wrestled in high school,” Wolf said. “It was kind of really tough, but I was really excited about it.”

Wolf’s weight class had two participants, which meant that she would face Amy Percy for the championship.

Wolf defeated Percy and claimed victory.

Saturday’s tournament comes after weeks of workshops offered by Campus Recreation.
