Six youth wrestlers represented Safford Wrestling Club at the Sunkist Kids Tournament at the ASU wrestling facility on September 22nd. 5 wrestlers won 1st place and the other finished in 2nd.
“We only lost one match the whole day. It’s awesome to see these boys have success after working so hard the last month,” said Head Coach Phillip Ornelas.” They deserve it but this is just the beginning. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Safford Wrestling.”
Safford Wrestling Club is on off-season option for local wrestlers who would like to continue their craft before and after the school season. It consists of athletes from 5 years old through high school. It is coached by Safford High Head Coach Herman Andrews and Safford Jr. High Coach Phillip Ornales.
