Wrestlers win in Campbell River, head to Abby

The ADSS girls and boys wrestling teams won the team title in the senior division of the Campbell River Invitational, heading to Abby Feb.1

The ADSS girls and boys wrestling teams won the team title in the senior division of the Campbell River Invitational.

EJ Dunn and AW Neill had top three team finishes as well.

The ADSS boys were led by the gold medal performances of Jordan Wagner (60kg), Dean Leyland (74kg), and Christian Anderson (90kg). All three boys are among the most dedicated ADSS wrestlers and they certainly earned the right to go undefeated in the tournament.  David Wilson (63kg) and Johannes Kulich (70kg) finished with silver medals.

The ADSS girls were led by the gold medal performances of Remi Wells (57kg) and Michel Kurucz (60kg).  Lauren Barker (57kg) and Isabella Jones (60kg) finished with bronze medals.

A number of Lower Mainland teams competed in the meet, which was previously dominated by Island teams. But competition is good, ADSS head coach John McDonald said.

“Overall our team performed well, we are small in numbers but we are fortunate to have a very consistent core group of athletes,” he said. “There are some things we can work on but if we can get everyone healthy I think we will be ready to make a push at provincials.”

Neill Middle School placed third in the Junior Boys Division. Brothers Owen (41kg) and Daniel (60kg) Spencer each won silver medals. Seth Price (35kg) and Scott Coulthart (63kg) finished with bronze medals.

The EJ Dunn Girls team finished third in the Junior Girls Division. Anna Frost went undefeated at 33 kg.  Ally Flaro finished second behind a very tough opponent from Phoenix.

The Dunn Boys finished fifth overall.  Isaac McDonald (41kg) and Jayce Clayton (70kg) each won their division. Jarod Gagnon (70kg) finished with the bronze medal.

A small group of wrestlers are competing in Abbotsford  Feb. 1. Alberni wrestlers are preparing for the Alberni Invitational Feb. 7–8.
