Tiger Takedown

AHS Wrestling 1-23-2017

 

January 27, 2017



The 35th Four Corners Orthodontics Tiger Duals is in the books. It was a great day of competition, excitement and drama. Twelve Varsity Teams, and 10 Junior Varsity Teams battled all day long toward the Championship. Our underhanded Junior Varsity came out on top, and the Varsity lost an exciting finale to Capital High School. Four Aztec wrestlers went unbeaten during the day, Austin Littlefield, Dominic Dufur, Cody Candelaria and Josiah Griego. Josiah capped off his run with the pin of a defending state champ Ryan Romero of Capital High School. On Thursday, in front of the Kirtland student body we were able to defeat them with a 42-33. Our JV won 24-16.
