Successful Weekend On The Mats For Abbotsford Schools

It was a successful weekend on the mats at the BC High School Wrestling Championships for athletes representing five schools in the Abbotsford School District. WJ Mouat Hawks won their first Provincial Boys title – the third consecutive year an Abbotsford school has taken the boy’s provincial title.

Hawks wrestlers won four individual medals, while wrestlers representing Rick Hansen Secondary and Yale Secondary won two medals and an Abbotsford Traditional Secondary wrestler medaled. One of the more remarkable results was Eugene Reimer Middle School’s grade 8 student Navdeep Toor, competing at the high school level and facing competitors from grades 10, 11 and 12, winning gold in the 41 kg category. Six other boys and one girl from Abbotsford schools achieved top six finishes in the provincial competition, held in Duncan last weekend (March 1-3.)

Three Abbotsford schools finished in the top ten in the boys’ competition: in addition to Mouat’s top placing, Rick Hansen was 5th and Yale finished 9th. No Abbotsford girls teams finished in top 10.
