Taos Tigers Wrestling at a glance

Col­ors: white

Coach: Robert Va­len­cia Key Wrestlers: The team is filled with tal­ented ath­letes, many of whom have past ex­pe­ri­ence at state. In his three vis­its to the state tour­na­ment, Christo­pher Va­len­cia has taken fourth and third once each and has been the state cham­pion once. Tyler Va­len­cia has also been state cham­pion as well as earn­ing third and fourth place fin­ishes at state. State cham­pion Este­van Va­le­rio has also placed third once and sec­ond once. Jessie Ay­ala took first place Or­ange, black, at state, and se­nior trans­fer stu­dent T.J. “Jimbo” Clark­son twice qual­i­fied for state in Texas. Also keep an eye out for Clay­ton De­mas and Jonathan Gar­cia, each of whom have pre­vi­ously placed third at state, and for heavy­weight Do­minic Lopez.

Tigers Wrestling Ros­ter: The ros­ter is not yet com­plete due to the ex­tended foot­ball sea­son. Look for a com­plete ros­ter with the first wrest­ing story of the sea­son.

2018/2019 Out­look

This year the Tiger wrestlers won’t host a tour­na­ment or dual. The ath­letes would still ap­pre­ci­ate sup­port, of course, es­pe­cially at the district du­als, district in­di­vid­ual tour­na­ment and state.

Coach Va­len­cia hopes to see con­tin­ual growth through­out the sea­son that cul­mi­nates in a team win at state with mul­ti­ple in­di­vid­ual cham­pi­ons. To ac­com­plish this, the stu­dent-ath­letes will need to re­main in­jury-free and el­i­gi­ble to com­pete.
