Aztec Wrestling Nation Newsletter #8 2022-2003 1/29/2023

Wow, what a week it has been, again with its highs and lows. On Friday, we had our Senior Appreciation Night,

against always tough Cedaredge, CO and came away with a tough 44-21 win. Our two senior boys wrestled lights

out. The girls were involved in two tournaments and showed the steady improvement that is expected of them,

by placing 4 th out of 13 at Piedra Vista and placing 3 rd out of 9 at Ignacio. With injuries and sickness, we could only

send four JV wrestlers to Piedra Vista, who managed an 11 th place finish. The Varsity went to the always tough

Butch Melton Invitational very short handed, taking only nine wrestlers and placing 4 th out of 16 teams with 3

champions, 1 runner-up and a 3 rd place finisher. This wasn’t too bad considering who was out of the lineup and six

weights uncovered. Next week will determine the District Championship and Bloomfield has an eye on taking
