Aztec Wrestling 2013 Newsletter update 4/8/2013
Just a periodical update on just what is or has happen with-in the Aztec Wrestling Program. The annual Aztec Youth Tournament was held on Saturday the 6th at Lillywhite Gymnasium. The Aztec Youth program which is headed by Coach Bryan Sanders (McCoy Elementary School principal) has, over the past few years, seen great growth with the numbers topping 165 youth wrestlers this season. On Saturday, 135 Aztec youth wrestlers participated with a total of 498 area wrestlers. The gym was pack as the annual ritual proceeded throughout the day. The officiating was done by 21 Aztec High School wrestlers who gave up their Saturday to keep this event going. During the 10 mat event, 750 matches were officiated. With prom looming that night, the High School Wrestlers, along with the youth wrestlers, all gained a degree of valuable experience. The youth gained more mat time which will prove out later and the High School athletes gave up their time and efforts which always is a plus for our youth, along with learning a little more wrestling and gaining confidence in front of the public. Accolades need to go to all of the parents and coaches for volunteering their time toward making this another successful season.
