“No Fear” Wrestler of the Week:   Bode Wooley 


Last Event:  Friday and Saturday, February 22-13,  NM State Tournament at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho


Aztec Wrestling Trivia: Monday will be the designated “Red Flag Day” based off of the Iowa Hawkeyes wrestling program did while under Dan Gable. When Coach Gable was not happy with his wrestlers' performance,  he would fly a Red Flag at the University flag pole telling his wrestlers to be prepared for a grueling practice.   In our case, it designates the toughest physical and mental practice of the year, to get ready for STATE. Two and a half hours of pure conditioning. If you live through this, you can do anything: Mind over matter..... the Aztec Wrestling Way.
