Tiger Takedown 2017-18 #6

Tiger Takedown: Aztec Wrestling Newsletter #6 2017-18 1/8/2018

We traveled to the always tough Rocky Mountain Invitational in Pagosa, and as always saw a solid day of very good wrestling. Pagosa, with a much improved wrestling team, won their home event with a solid performance followed by Aztec. Our performance was good; just not good enough on that day. On Thursday we hosted Bayfield in a dual held at Koogler. We were able to put Bayfield away early, with a 63-9 win. Our Junior Varsity traveled to the Demon Round Robin in Durango and came away with 3 Champions and 2 runner-up wrestlers.
