Campbell River’s outstanding wrestlers honoured

The Campbell River wrestling community celebrated the accomplishments of the past season at the 2017/18 Campbell River Wrestling Awards Banquet, held at Carihi on May 3.

The Campbell River Wrestling Association is a diverse group of dedicated coaches, athletes, volunteers and parents, and like past years, there was lots to celebrate at this awards ceremony and dinner. Each year awards are dedicated to the club members that stand out amongst their amazing peers.
