Wrestling Jenison vs Union

Knowing next to nothing about wrestling and having never attended a match, I walked away with a ton of respect for these athletes. What was on display in each weight class was a delicate dance of technique and raw strength, and clearly there needed to be both in order to stand out in this sport. While the points and scoring made little sense to me, the competition left an impression. The strategic look upon their faces, occasional choke hold, arm fighting, take down and pin all created some intense moments. Using my 70-200 allowed for intimate photos that really captured the strength and effort these athletes put forth.
