The Aberdeen High School wrestling team hosted the Tiger Grind Wrestling Tournament this last Friday and Saturday, Jan. 31 and Feb. 1. The tournament brought 18 teams to Aberdeen where wrestling took place in the high school and middle school.
The tournament was a team dual style tournament. Each team participated in 12 rounds of wrestling. Wrestling started at 3 p.m. on Friday and went until 8 p.m. that night. The tournament resumed Saturday morning at 9 a.m. and finished around 5:30 p.m.
Head coach Jordan Johns and tournament director Kirk Anderson thank everyone from the community that volunteered their time and money to support the tournament and the wrestling team. There were also numerous community members who volunteered their time to help with the concessions and coaches room. This tournament is always a huge undertaking and could not be possible without the help of all of the willing volunteers from our community.
The Aberdeen wrestlers head to Soda Springs for the district tournament tentatively scheduled for Friday, Feb. 21. The top two wrestlers in each weight class in the district will advance to the state tournament. The state tournament will be held the following weekend, Feb. 27 through March 1, at the Idaho Center in Boise.
