Wrestling Chicken Wing Invitational


Emily Mendez, writer

Westside’s wrestling team is having a very important event this weekend. They are competing in the Chicken Wing Invitational which is a wrestling tournament. Now, the name may sound a little odd but there is a meaning behind it. A Chicken Wing is a wrestling move done by the wrestlers, in which they grab their opponent’s arm into the shape of a chicken wing, then they turn them over on their back and pin them down. Teams from all over Houston and some from Dallas will come to Westside, and compete against each other. This tournament is very important for the Wrestling Team and it has been held at Westside since the school opened its doors, 21 years ago. If our team wins, they receive a trophy, and if the individual wrestlers win, they receive a medal.

If you would like to attend and support your friends, learn new things about your school, and have fun, you should come to this event on Friday January 14th from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and on Saturday January 15th from 9:00am to 6:00pm. All students need is 5$ for the entry. So, come along this weekend to support and cheer on your fellow wolves at this tournament, wish them luck!
