What is Head Wrestling Coach Monte Maxwell's goal for this season? "Defend the state title." They set, and met, that goal last year. He said this year the coaches are responsible for preparing the wrestlers; the wrestlers are responsible for defending the title.

Already the Tigers have started working towards state. They had their first season practice on Monday November 5, and they practiced through Thanksgiving Break.

Coach Herb Stinson said they have 35 wrestlers so far, including two female wrestlers. He expects the number of wrestlers to round out to 40 soon. The team lost only three members to graduation last May. But Coach Stinson spoke optimistically about the team. "We're probably stronger now than we've been in years."

The junior varsity wrestlers have their first tournament on December 1st in Aztec; varsity wrestlers have their first tournament on December 7th in Bloomfield.
