The Tucumcari Rattlers wrestling team placed eighth overall at the Randall Greater Gold invite at Amarillo.
“We are very happy with how we did on our first outing. We wrestled against some tough Texas schools. Randall’s coach was suprised at how well we did for being such a young team,” said coach Eddie Encinias. “We had to spot other teams 30 points due to having two injured wrestlers who had to forfeit. But we beat schools like Lubbock Coranado, Randall and Caprock even with 30 point spot.”
