Quality time on the school’s mats is paying off for Westview Secondary’s young grapplers.
The Maple Ridge high school’s Cadet Girl’s wrestling team had an excellent showing at the Western Canada age class championships in Abbotsford two weeks ago (Jan. 22 to 25). The squad won a gold medal and have gained some confidence for the upcoming zone championships in the process.
Lily Teare-Cunningham, Grade 10, and Zoie Sawada, Grade 9, both won gold medals in their respective brackets, while Ashmeet Panag, Grade 10, earned a silver. Kayana Irani, Grade 9, did not place, but her coach, Kaitlyn Poirier, said she performed well and contributed to the team’s overall results.
