    The VMI looks great again but as every year comes up, there are changes with the team lineup. Most of these teams have confirmed and I took out the teams that won't return. We would like to get a couple more teams and we will cap off at 36 for the boys. The tournament will be on Dec 20-21, 2019.
    If you're interested, your team gets 10 duals and your girls can wrestle in our girls VMI (Dec 20). The middle school/jr. high will wrestle on Dec 19. Three male and three female wrestlers will also get Outstanding Wrestler fight shorts. Boys teams will be awarded 1st-4th team trophies and one OW team. Girls teams will be awarded 1st and 2nd, with an OW team as well.
    The food is good, the teams are competitive, the shirts are original and our facility is state-of-the-art. Sleep in our events center to save $ on lodging. Email me at: Mhillis@wrschool.net for a flyer.

    Although the boys teams are full (top list was updated today), we can take girls teams. Casteel is the only girls' team not accompanying a boys team.
    Kirtland Central
    Pebble Hills TX
    Montwood TX
    Eastlake TX
    Other teams will have girls but probably not a full team line up: WR, TC, MV, Pinon, Page, Wingate NM, Gallup NM, TO, and Chinle will also have girls wrestling for them.

    The Veterans Memorial Invitational will kick off this Friday morning, Dec 20th.
    The Girls teams will almost match the boys with the added teams of River Valley and Casteel. This lends to possibly 38 teams represented in an individually bracketed tournament.
    The Boys will have 10 duels each and here are the pools. Right now we don't plan to have on Track....unless some miracle worker comes through. We're going to run with this and make it our best yet. We'll have it all...tees, Fight shorts for OW's Shute....etc.

    We've come a long way from the 14 teams participating just 5 years ago. Thanks to Camp Verde and Mt. Pointe's former coaching staff who helped us launch this with their participation and look at where we are today! My former staff and assistant coaches, Dan Racey and Ramsey Davidson for their coolness under fire for those first few tournaments. I'd also like to thank the following programs for their past participation in our event: Pecos NM, Monument Valley UT, Rancho NV, Flagstaff, Kingman, Northland Prep, Odyssey Inst, Chandler Prep, Baboquivari, Perry, Sunnyside, Prescott, Mingus, Valley-Sanders, Catalina, Ironwood, Tolleson, Pinon, Aztec NM, and Sierra Linda. Every one of these teams counted for our past success. I also appreciate GREATLY, the efforts of our Window Rock Wrestling Association parents who helped with not only providing a beloved wrestler but also the fine spread available to coaches in the hospitality room.
    LET'S DO THIS!!!!
