  • Invite returns after being 'frozen out'

    “Frozen out but not forgotten” was the theme after the Bryan Sanchez Memorial Invitational wrestling tournament was canceled in 2011.
    The Bryan Sanchez tournament is the main event of each season for the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team, but because of weather issues, along with a statewide natural gas shortage that left thousands in New Mexico without heat as a major cold front swept through the state, the tournament was nixed.
    The frosty and icy conditions may have frozen out the tournament, but not the wrestling community.
