Aztec Wrestling Nation Newsletter #6 2022-2023 1/16/2023

We always promise to take Aztec Wrestling to the toughest tournaments possible and we took them to a true

meat grinder in Winslow, Arizona. There were 54 teams from as far away as Washington State, filling the gym

to capacity this year. Our girls were faced with 41 teams as well, by far the biggest tournament Aztec girls have

ever faced. The boys were without last year’s tournament champion and a 3rd place finisher, along with missing

a total of four weight classes, making it a true uphill battle. Our Junior Varsity went to the Varsity Garrison

Spencer Memorial Duals in Shiprock and came away with a 4-1 duals record. On Wednesday, our girls were in

Gallup for the Miyamura Crown the Queen Tournament and placed third.
