Ramblers wrestlers ready for qualifiers

The MRSS wrestling team came up big in back-to-back weekend tournaments in preparation for the upcoming Zone Championships and B.C. Qualifiers.

Last weekend in Abbotsford it was a sibling showcase. Cam Hicks wrestled the best technical match of his Grade 9 career to win gold, and little brother Ryan secured a silver.

Also, Ciara McCrae dominated her weight class to win gold, and brother Devin earned a bronze.

Payten Smith remained unbeaten and unscored upon in placing first, and Shaimen Bhogal served notice that he will be a provincial champion contender by easily winning gold.

Grade 9 student Hayden Tupper also battled for a gold.

The following weekend in Port Alberni, Smith and Ciara McCrae both won gold medals and earned the MRSS senior girls squad a second-place plaque at the 30-year-old tournament.

Tairn Richardson broke through and won his first senior gold medal, while Brody Koopmans battled injuries and opponents to take bronze.   Libby McDonnell placed third, and Hayden Tupper fourth.
