The Viking wrestling team spent winter break traveling and competing at tournaments in surrounding states. One stop was Reno, Nevada, where wrestlers competed with over 100 schools in one of the toughest tournaments in the nation. Junior, Antonio Garcia, found himself on the podium at the end of the tournament, bringing home an 8th place medal.
After Reno tournament, wrestlers traveled to Vancouver, WA to compete in a tournament there. Once again Antonio led the Vikings at this tournament with a 1st place finish, bringing home a gold medal in the 220 pound division. Congrats to Antonio and all Viking wrestlers!
