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.
