Scorpions place top 5 at 3 different tournaments
Desert Edge is trying to put itself on the wrestling map this season.
The Scorpions placed in the top five at all four tournaments they competed in this year. The latest was a fifth-place showing at the Peoria Invitational Tournament of Champions Jan. 9-10.
“We’ve beaten [Peoria] Liberty, which has got a good program, we beat [Glendale] Deer Valley,” Desert Edge assistant coach Jonathan Courtney said. “We’ve beat really good teams that have been successful in all the other years.”
The tournament success has put Desert Edge in the top five on the rankings page at Arizonawrestling.com, Courtney said.
