Former Rams wrestler moves on to the CIS

The UFV wrestling program was boasting of its reloaded team for the 2016-17 season, and that included Maple Ridge’s Marko Kolobara.

The University of the Fraser Valley wrestling program was boasting of its  reloaded team for the 2016-17 season, and that included Maple Ridge’s Marko Kolobara.

Kolobara climbed the podium at four tournaments during the high school season, picking up bronze medals at the SFU War on the Floor, Western Canada Age Class, Alberni Invitational, and Upper Fraser Valley zone championships. The three-time provincial championship qualifier will enrol in business at UFV.

“He’s wrestled for a long time, and been really involved in the sport,” said coach Raj Virdi said.

“When he gets to compete at a higher level and absorbs some more coaching, I think he has a lot of potential.”

“We’re going to have a lot younger group,” noted  Virdi, who serves as co-head coach of the Cascades wrestling program alongside Arjan Bhullar.

“We’re glad our team is growing, and I believe we’ll have success throughout the year. Myself and Arjan are going to work really hard with the kids, and hopefully we’ll get some good results at the Canada West and CIS championships.”
