It was a tough week for the wrestling team who was defeated strongly by Westminster. Nine members of the team participated in a tournament on the weekend. There was some great wrestling by all the wrestlers but the team definitely fest the rust from the holidays and snow days. Highlights were great individual performances by Matt Holder, Meriah Swanson, and a silver medal for Andrew Pease. There were more than 400 wrestlers at this tournament from all across Ontario.
