Aztec Wrestling Nation Newsletter #3 2022-2023 12/19/2022

This weekend was a humbling and very important learning moment at this point in our season. The Desert Storm Tournament in St George, UT was extremely tough, with a lot of individual growth. Once again, we were short in numbers and very young, leaving four weights open and using three 8 th graders in the lineup. The tournament had a total of 32 teams from four states. Our girls went to the Veterans Memorial Invite that had 200 wrestlers and gained valuable experience, bringing home two medals.
