Need mat time at an awesome tournament? then come out to Window Rock AZ.  Just over the state line from Gallup, NM lies the largest high school events center in Arizona. This tournament is growing, doubling in size from its beginning in 2014.
4th Annual Veterans Memorial Wrestling Invitational
December 15th and 16th, 2017
Window Rock High School, Fort Defiance, AZ
Teams: First 28 teams to be determined upon acceptance of our invitation
FORMAT: Team duals and individual medal tournament. 28 teams will be divided into 4 pools of seven teams in a series of duals, five duals per team on Day 1 and three on Day 2 (two duals are interpool duals to determine placings). The top two wrestlers from each pool will advance on to the medal rounds in the same fashion. Every wrestler will have a minimum of 8 matches, with medalists wrestling 9-10 matches. We will wrestle on four mats, with six available total.
*this is subject to change according to number of teams committed. We will maximize your wrestlers’ mat time.
This year, we will not have a JV tournament. Instead, we will fit them in as extra. They won’t score for the team but have a chance to individually medal.

Teams this past season:
Camp Verde (8X AZ state champions), Hopi, Kingman, Chinle, Red Mesa, Window Rock, Shiprock NM, Mohave, Blue Ridge, Miami, Gallup NM, Wingate NM, Monument Valley, Round Valley, Tohono O'odham, Pecos NM, Moriarty NM, Flagstaff, San Carlos, Pinon, Many Farms.

New teams for 2017:
Los Alamos NM
Perry HS

We are limiting to 28  and still get the max mat time too!

We'd love to have a Texas team come to our December tournament.  If your team would like to try, do let me know.  Now we're at 21/22 teams.  We will cap off at 28.  Most teams are from AZ, with a handful from New Mexico.
At 28 teams, your team will get 8 matches minimum.  Medalists go on for 1-2 more matches.
If you have any questions or any way I can assist you, please do let me know.
