Tiger Takedown 2017-18 #3

Tiger Takedown: Aztec Wrestling Newsletter #3 2017-2018 12/18/2017

As you may have noticed, there was not a #2 newsletter last week. Due to the events that tragically unfolded on Thursday, December 7th that took the lives of two of our students, and in remembrance of them and the faculty that saved so many lives, it will be left blank in their memory.

The first Varsity event of this season for Aztec was held in St. George, Utah. It was the always tough Desert Storm Invitational, which had 30 teams represented from 4 states. Aztec won it for the first time ever proving they are #aztecstrong. Cody Candelaria was voted Outstanding Wrestler of the Tournament and our lone champion. Our Junior Varsity, which was understaffed, placed 5th out of 28 teams, scoring 338 points with just 9 wrestlers.
