Even though their season was cut short, members of the Lakeview Mat Club were still able to receive their awards for a job well done.
With only a couple of matches to go, including one that was to be held at the Lakeview High School, members of the Lakeview Mat Club were not able to complete their season. Not wanting to let down those who participated, Mitch Ishida made sure that those that won awards were able to collect them.
First up was the Burns Buckle award winner, Cadin Ishida. This award is given out by the people who organize the Burns Tournament to teams to present to the wrestlers on their team that distinguished themselves. While they get the Buckle right after the tournament, it is not awarded until the end of the season. Coach Mitch Ishida, takes in the entire season’s results and competitions.
“Cadin showed respect to all of his opponents this season and saved any emotions for off the mat. This was a big step for Cadin and big improvement from past seasons,” said Coach Ishida.
