Tiger Takedown 2017-18 #9

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.
