Aztec Wrestling Nation Newsletter #4 2022-23

Aztec Wrestling Nation Newsletter#4 2022-2023 1/2/2023

In our third week of varsity competition, everything that could go wrong went wrong.

Southwest Airlines cancelled more than 2,500 flights, including ours to the Sierra Nevada Classic in Reno,

NV. After many attempts by the Booster Club to rectify this problem and an attempt to secure Amtrak

tickets instead, the Reno trip was abandoned and alternate plans were sought. An attempt to drive to

Las Vegas, NV or Prescott, AZ for a tournament was not approved and we ended up traveling south to

Silver City for their duals. As we are not yet a duals team at this point in the season due to injuries, this

tournament format was not ideal for us but we took what we were allowed to have. This proved to be a

double-edged sword; with one edge giving us needed mat time and the other showing some flaws that

need to be improved. The girls were fortunate, as last minute girls match ups were able to be organized

at the same venue, otherwise they would not have had the opportunity to compete at all.
