Maquinna wrestlers take home elementary school trophy

Event at Alberni high school wraps up elementary program

Maquinna Elementary School wrestlers are taking home some hardware after winning an elementary school wrestling event held Friday, Nov. 3 at Alberni District Secondary School’s gym.

New and returning wrestlers from the elementary program have been competing against each other in a number of events this fall.

Alberni Wrestling will host the 2018 BC High School Wrestling Championships in Port Alberni; the last time the provincial championship was held here was a decade ago.

You can check their countdown close at alberniwrestling.ca.
