Uvalde High School’s wrestling team enjoyed a successful day of district tournament competition last Friday.
Six UHS wrestlers won district championship honors, while six other UHS wrestlers also qualified for regional tournament competition.
The regional tournament is scheduled for tomorrow and Saturday at Austin’s Delco Activity Center.
“Our kids will be traveling to Austin to compete in the Region IV tournament this weekend,” said UHS head wrestling coach Nick Hernandez. “We have already seen many of the wrestlers from other schools that we will face at the regional tournament.
“I look forward to seeing our kids compete against the best from our region and to seem them earn a spot in the state tournament,” said Hernandez.
