Aztec Wrestling 3/12/2018

The awards banquet for the 2018 5-1A State Champions was held tonight at the High School. This annual event held a little more meaning as we were able to celebrate a hard fought season that took us through a thousand different emotions; from tragedy to euphoria. To be a member of a State Championship is very special and forever. Team mates for life and stories for ever will be embellished and rehashed hundreds of times as each member goes on their way into life. Aztec Wrestling will now move into a new phase as we each now understand what it takes and just what they have to be do in order to be successful. The price is high but that is the way it should be if it is a worthwhile cause. The most important lesson learned will be measured in how each team member lives their life, and takes care of their families well after they have left the high school. Our Legends of the past speaker this year was Jason Hare. Jason was a 2002 grad and Aztec State Champ. His talk was based on what it means to be on the wall and the importance of being a student athlete in that order.
