Tiger Takedown



February 10, 2017

One of the main goals for this season was to return the District Championship to Aztec. The mission was accomplished in Kirtland on Saturday. The District 1-5A Championships belong to Aztec by going 5-0.

On the same day, our Junior Varsity with just 7 wrestlers, was in Aztec at the San Juan JV Basin Championships placing 2nd behind Piedra Vista who had 30 wrestlers entered. Not bad for being undermanned!

Next Saturday, we will host the State Qualifying Tournament in Aztec. All is on the line to qualify as many as possible for both experience and fire power at the State Championships.
