Photo of the Week: So painfully close
February 21, 2013 · 1:10 PM
Photographer Rachel Ciampi captured his moment at last Saturday's Mat Classic.
Kent-Meridian senior Joshua Smith came up short in the 138-pound 4A state title match after injuring his ankle late in the first period. Down 3-2, Smith couldn't hold off Yelm's Dillon Harris, who took Smith down on the edge of the circle halfway into the second period.
Harris was able to get Smith on his back and got the pin with 45 seconds left in the period.
After the match ended, Smith limped off the mat, then sat down, clearly still hampered by the injury.
