Maple Ridge Ramblers wrestlers past and present continue to add to their trophy cases, after the 2024 Canadian Wrestling Championships.

The event was held on March 14-17 in Ottawa.

Ashton Senko, the captain of the high school team, won the junior women team trials for 59 kg, and is now part of the Canadian world team and will compete in the U20 Pan American games.

Senko was a gold medallist and voted the Most Outstanding Wrestler at the B.C. Secondary Schools 2024 Wrestling Championship, held on Feb. 24 in Vancouver.

The fourth local standout at the event was by Miki Rowbottom, a former Ridge and University of Calgary wrestler, who was the 62kg senior national champion in Ottawa.
