Everyone was able to sleep in eat breakfast, then 
gather over at the Fargodome  to watch Josh wrestle.

Team Hawaii wrestling concluded the 2013 USAW Cadet 
and  Junior Nationals with a victory as Josh Terao 
won his 7th place All American match!
After lunch in the cafeteria the team headed over 
to Thunder Road Family Fun Center! Everyone had 
fun, racing go-karts, playing miniature golf, lazer tag and hitting balls
in the batting cage!
Team meetings, packing and cleaning dorm rooms finished the day, tomorrow 
we leave for Minneapolis where we fly home from!
Stay tuned, I will post more tomorrow!

COACH MAC’S FARGO BLOG 7/19

Friday July 19, 2013  

Last early morning weigh-in in Fargo, only Josh Terao and I in a sea of mainland  
wrestlers and coaches. We were able to get through the process quickly and get  
Josh to the cafeteria before the rush! Zack Diamond did not have to weigh-in, so  
he got to sleep in for a change!

We were hopeful for 2 more National champions, but very proud of Josh and 
Zack  getting as far as they did: Zack finished 8th place and Josh will wrestle for
7th tomorrow! 

Team Hawaii wrestlers finished All American in every division  including 3 
individual National Champions!
Josh Terao stayed with his folks for the night, the rest of the wrestlers were  
done for the year and there was an air of playfulness in the dorms.
An impromptu  team outing was organized, and we went to an all you can eat 
buffet style restaurant (photos above)! We got a private party room,  had 
a lot of fun, ate a lot of food,  and proposed soft drink toasts to the 
All Americans at the table!
Tomorrow all focus will be on Josh Terao's 7th place All American match!
Stay tuned, I will blog again tomorrow!
