Ridge wrestlers medal at provincials

Former Ramblers compete at U Sport nationals

Marquesis Haintz of the Maple Ridge Ramblers won her weight class as the B.C. high school wrestling championships this past weekend in Port Alberni.

Haintz led the Maple Ridge secondary girls team to a third-place finish overall.

Ivy Threatful of MRSS won bronze in the same class, while Ashley Roy finished fourth.

On the boys side, MRSS captain Lukas Kolobara placed second. Ryan Hicks was third. Jacob McClure came fourth.

The MRSS boys team placed 10th in the 62-team tournament.

Combined, Maple Ridge secondary placed third overall, winning the aggregate plaque.

Meanwhile, two former MRSS wrestlers both finished in fifth place in their classes at the Canadian University Sports wrestling championships recently.

The Brock Badgers won their fifth straight title at the 2018 U Sports championships, which were held in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. on Feb. 24.

Cam Hicks, now in his first year with the University of Calgary Dinos, finished fifth in the men’s 57 kg weight class.

Miki Rowbottom, with the University of Regina Cougars, finished fifth in the women’s 59 kg class.

They were named the most outstanding male and female wrestlers at MRSS during the wrestling team’s annual awards banquet a year ago.

At last year’s B.C. high school wrestling provincial championships, Rowbottom won the 57 kg weight class to cap of an undefeated Grade 12 year of wrestling
