When they had wrestled most of the members had won the matches. Jones had lost his match he said that “[He] could had wrestled better but [he] fought hard during the match.” Jones had said that “The team did really good overall.” Comparing it to other games Jones had said that “[they] did go 

od over all but lost because we didn't have a lot of kids.” In the future Jones said that he would like to improve on his shots and hopefully he will do good on his future matches.

He had said even though they had lost as a team due to forfeits the team had solid individual wins. Parada Araujo said that “I didn't do as well as I wanted to because I had a cold, so I feel I could've done better.” He said that the team did good overall, even though they did not have many returning members.

He had also said that “this match was more draining than any others, I had to work even harder and [had to] pace myself.”
