Tiger Takedown:              Aztec Wrestling Newsletter #9    2017-2018                         1/29/2018


The number one 2A wrestling program in Colorado, Cedaredge High School, came to town on Thursday and a barn burner of a dual was wrestled in Lillywhite Gym.  Aztec came out on top with a 42-30 win.  The score went back and forth throughout the evening and it came down to a gutsy performance by Senior Josiah Griego to fight off his back and eventually pin #1 ranked Trey Geyer, to secure the win for Aztec.  Geyer took offence to being pinned and his actions led to his ejection and lost 3 team points for Cedaredge.  Our JV lost 28-22.  Then on Saturday we traveled to Ignacio to the oldest continually run wrestling tournament in the area, The Butch Melton Invitational.  It proved to be a great final regular season event.  Aztec placed 3rd, out of 20 schools.
