This was the first year
that USA Wrestling-Utah had team championships at the state
tournament. In the week prior, the wrestlers, coaches and
parents started telling Coach Bill Kilpack (III) that, if the team
took the Team Championships in both styles, they would get to cut
off his pony tail.
They did just that.
And here is the rest of
Team Mom Alison Schwendiman
preparing the pony tail for braiding before cutting.
Team Mom Alison Schwendiman and
daughter MacKelti Kilpack braiding the pony tail as the cameras
flash and video cameras run.
Coach Derek Jensen sawing away
with dull scissors as wrestlers and parents cheer.
And more cutting.
And some shameless gloating.
