Eight was enough.
West Las Vegas’ wrestling team, taking just eight grapplers — six short of the full 14, wrangled a fourth-place finish in the 14-team Gene Gagliardi Invitational this past Saturday in Trinidad, Colo.
John Armijo pinned all five of his opponents, including Jacob Bookout of Pueblo (Colo.) Central in the final, to win the 171-pound division for West.
Rosendo “Ross” Valdez (125 lbs.), Mike Jaramillo (140) and Conrad Mares (160) also reached the finals, finishing second.
