Tiger Takedown 2019-20 #4

2019-2020 Tiger Takedown #4 Aztec Wrestling Newsletter 12/23/2019

After a 400+ mile bus trip to St. George Utah, we participate in the always tough 2 day Marine Corp Desert Storm Classic and this was our 2nd event of the season. While there, we were able to see just where we are and what we need to work on. The competition consisted of 23 schools from 4 states and it was a mixed bag of outcomes for Aztec. We showed moments of brilliance and moments of immaturity, while on the mat. After the long ride home and some heavy contemplation, everything is neither as bad as it seems nor as good, but our effort lies somewhere in-between. Our leadership needs to step up, while our team chemistry is growing in the right direction. All in all, it was a good trip for the Varsity Wrestling team. While at the tournament, we received many compliments on our sportsmanship both as wrestlers and coaches and that’s always a good thing to hear. On Saturday, our shorthanded JV and Girls team went to the Kirtland JV event. Listed below are their outcomes.
