Not content with a T-shirt, a postcard or a keychain, Rico Montoya had a different souvenir in mind from his summer trip to Montana.

Montoya was one of four Las Vegas wrestlers who competed in the AAU Grand Nationals for Greco-Roman, freestyle, and folkstyle wrestling June 11-12 in Butte, Mont.
The foursome was part of a 15-wrestler contingent from New Mexico, said Marcos Martinez, one of the group’s coaches and an accomplished grappler himself.
