Aztec Wrestling Nation Newsletter #9 2021-2022 2/7/2022
This newsletter starts with just how tough a few but skilled lady Tiger wrestlers are. They have had a quiet but outstanding season. With small team numbers, they have been able to bring back hardware and beat teams with more girls on them. They are led by senior and junior 2x State Champs, Princess Altsisi and Makayla Munoz, followed up by senior state qualifier Brynn Kirby, who has had a very solid season as well. Rounding out our small team is junior Mia Melendez. Missing out, after a great first half of the season, is freshman Nadya Duran, and due to an injury, promising sophomore Delany Turner. With a good recruiting year next season, it could bring us the number that our girls program deserves. Thursday night they finished with 10 wins and 3 losses against Farmington, Bloomfield and Piedra Vista. On Saturday, the boys traveled to Bloomfield for the District 1-4A Championships and walked away with their 6th straight District 1-4A Championship.
