Wrestlers from Pecos, Taos and Tucumcari will be in town Saturday, joining host Robertson and West Las Vegas for the individual district tournament at the McFarland Hall gymnasium.

At stake are qualifications to the state tournament. Top four wrestlers in each weight class advance to state, which is Feb. 19-20 at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.

Robertson is the defending Class 1A-4A state champion and returns individual state champs Johnathan Trujillo, Brad Jordan, Joseph Paul Griego and Amos Rivera.
