by Coach Stinson, Special to TALON

For the second week in a row, the traveling Varsity Wrestling team went west. This time, they competed in the Las Vegas Holiday Classic National Invitational Wrestling Tournament held in the South Point Casino. This year’s tough competition included 64 teams from 7 different states. Aztec, after a tough two days of competing, came away with 7 medals and the third place team trophy. Princess Altisi, our lone female wrestler, was crowned the girls Champion at 160 pounds; which continues to prove our girl is as tough as the boys.
