Nine Alberni wrestlers travelled to Abbotsford to compete at the 12th annual Miri Piri Club Championships this past weekend. All nine athletes finished top three in their respective weight classes.
The team was led by defending provincial champion, grade 12 Aaron Badovinac (74 kg). Aaron steam-rolled his competition on his way to a gold medal performance. Badovinac won all of his matches by fall and did not relinquish a point the entire tournament.
The ADSS squad also had strong silver medal performances from Anna Frost (54 kg), Paige Maher (76 kg), Jayce Clayton (90 kg) and William Merry (HWT). Bronze medals were won by Ravi Manhas (48 kg), Seth Price (57 kg), Owen Spencer (63 kg), and Mackenzie Boudreau (70 kg).
“I was very pleased with the success of our athletes this weekend,” said head coach John McDonald.
“To have every one of our kids come home with a medal shows we are where we need to be in preparation for the provincial championships.”
