Wrestling to Compete in Live Greco Invite
January 30, 2015
On Jan 31st, the wrestling team will be attending the Live Greco Invitational. The invitational is to honor Greco Roman Bouzakis, a 3 year old recently diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer.
“They’re going to give out championship belts to the winners, so it’s a good fundraiser and also a good tournament for us to go too,” said Coach Thomas Montero.
The tournament is open to the first 16 teams that come and it costs $250. Tournament and Team Greco t-shirts will be on sale at the event.
Weigh-ins start at 8:30 AM and wrestling starts at 9:30 AM. Awards will be given to the top four teams and finalists, as well as awards given to outstanding light and heavy weights.
“We should do fairly well, [though] there’s going to be a lot of competition. I suspect us at top four,” said Montero.
Montero keeps a motto throughout the entire wrestling season.
“We work hard, we wrestle, [and then] we win,”
