The Pilot Sports Team has enlisted the help of Union Pines' senior wrestler Mike Brennan, to keep a trip journal so fans and readers can stay updated on how the boys' excursion is progressing.
In his junior year Mike wrestled at 160-pounds for U.P. winning the Cape Fear Valley Conference Championship and placing third in the state at the NCHSAA 3A state wrestling tournament.
What follows is the fifth entry in an on-going online journal Mike is keeping and will add to throughout UPHS Wrestling's 2011 summer camp trip:
Day 6, July 10, 12:24 a.m.
We were fortunate to sleep in today because our tournament at Lutheran West didn't start until until about 1 p.m..
Union Pines had 5 champs including myself, Jaiden Lindsey, Adrian Soto-Perez and Taylor Walker. There were also several runner-ups.
Following the tournament, we left for a Cleveland Indians baseball game.
I've never cared for baseball, but I think watching a live game has me hooked. The highlight of the game was the fireworks show, hands down.
The fireworks were synchronized to British Takeover music from the 60's and 70's. It was one of the most incredible things I have ever seen.
We just arrived at the Vondruska's and it's passed midnight. We depart for Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania at 8 tomorrow morning.
