Small Campbell River contingent makes strong showing in Abbotsford tournament

A small contingent of  Campbell River wrestlers traveled to Abbotsford last weekend to compete in the 9th annual Miri-Piri Club tournament. Several wrestlers had strong performances and it was evident how greatly the skill level keep improving over the season.

The senior wrestlers led the way with Timberline’s Dawson MacKay winning the gold medal¬† and Conlan Foy snaring a silver.

Carihi seniors were just as impressive, with Ali McPhee finishing with silver and Hailey Dean and Alex Jinda bringing home bronze medals.

Two up-and-comers from Phoenix Middle School posted impressive results, with Holten Ewing winning the gold and Scott Assu finishing fourth.

Next on deck for Campbell River’s wrestlers is the local tournament being hosted this Saturday at Carihi. Registration begins at 8 a.m., with wrestling scheduled from 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
