Aztec sophomore Bode Wooley increases his pressure on 3A Bayfield, Colorado's Jason Schneider, hoping to turn the Wolverine down to the mat, Thursday night, Jan. 4. Wooley won via 17-1 technical fall, officially stopping the 152-pounders' match 41 seconds into the third period.


We traveled to the always -tough Rocky Mountain Invitational in Pagosa, and, as always, saw a solid day of very good Wrestling. Pagosa, with a much improved Wrestling team, won their home event with a solid performance followed by Aztec. Our performance was good; just not good enough on that day. On Thursday we hosted Bayfield in a dual held at Koogler. We were able to put Bayfield away early, with a 63-9 win. Our JV team traveled to the Demon Round Robin in Durango and came away with 3 Champions and 2 runner-up wrestlers.

106# 11th, Bella Wells, 4-0, Champion

Medina won by pin 31 seconds into the third period, and the 5A Tigers-who totaled six pins-prevailed handily, 63 to 9.
