Comments by Head Wrestling Coach Duffy Otteson – “Winnemucca is a very tough tournament (26 teams). There is a lot of big schools there and some schools that come down from Idaho and Oregon. Our kids did well and learned a lot from the tournament. We are still a very young team with very little experience. We are off to lovelock this weekend for another big tournament we are hoping to get everyone healthy this week as we have been sick. We should have 6 wrestlers going this weekend. We then will get a break and come back to Alamo for a tournament and we should be up to 7 kids for that tournament. The kids have been working hard in practice and are improving.”

This week Tonopah Wrestlers travel to Lovelock, NV to the Lovelock Invitational (Dec. 20th)
