Tiger Takedown 2018-19 #3

Tiger Takedown Aztec Wrestling Nation Newsletter #3 2018-2019 12/17/2018

If humility is the mother of all great success stories, the defending New Mexico State Champions, Aztec Wrestling got its fair share at the always extremely tough Desert Storm 32 team multi-state invitational. As coaches, we pride ourselves with taking our wrestlers to events to get them beat, because only through defeat can you learn to win. While in St. George, Utah, we learned a lot, as individuals and as a program and were complimented by coaches and officials on the team’s wrestling and on their respectful behavior. On the same weekend, Aztec Wrestling had three teams competing, with the Junior Varsity in St. George and the C Team in Kirtland. This has not happened since the 90’s; great times are in store for us.
