Tiger Takedown 2019-20 #1

2019-20120 Tiger Takedown Newsletter #1 12/3/2019

As one season comes to an end, the high school season goes into full gear. This first newsletter of the season is dedicated to the middle school wrestlers and coaches for bringing back the San Juan Basin Wrestling Championship to Aztec. The last time Aztec won that title was in 2008. In total, Aztec Middle School has won more Basin Championships than any other school. At 15 championships, the long dry spell is over. Our understaffed middle school varsity won the tournament by 61 points, showing it’s not about quantity, but about quality. All 13 wrestlers placed in the top 3 out of a team of 17 possible weight classes. The week earlier, our middle school JV’s had a great showing by placing second, as they were well out numbered with only 13 wrestlers.
