Ridge wrestlers win gold

Four members of Maple Ridge secondary’s girls’ wrestling team finished atop the podium last weekend at the Miri Piri Invitational Wrestling Tournament in Abbotsford.

Team co-captain Candice Owen and Ciara McCrae both had strong performances, as did Grade 9 wrestler Clarissa Morgan.

Shae Corwin had one of the most impressive matches of the tourney, coming from behind after losing the first round to a Grade 12 wrestler from St. Patrick’s Regional Secondary School in Vancouver.

“She really turned the corner of her wrestling career,” said Maple Ridge wrestling coach Bill McCrae. “Shae rose up in the second round, crushing the older wrestlers spirit.”

In the boys’ competition, Brendan Prevost won silver, while Brodie McKenzie took bronze.
