Tiger Takedown: Aztec Wrestling Newsletter #4 2017-2018 12/25/2017

The Tiger Wrestling Team hosted always tough Monticello, Utah on Military Appreciation Night, Thursday, 21st. The five branches were represented and presented with framed certificates of Thanks for their service to us all and our country. Then a tough dual with Monticello proceeded with Monticello taking a slim 38-37 win. It was disappointing to have lost our first home dual, but it was exciting until the end. Then on Friday 22nd a makeup tournament was found by Coach Maxwell for us to participate in, at Kirtland High school. After dueling all afternoon Aztec came out ahead winning all 4 duals.
