Wetaskiwin wrestling season starts up

Big wrestling tournament coming up in December

We just hosted our annual Wetaskiwin Classic Wrestling tournament Nov. 22/23 at WCHS which included elementary, junior high and senior high school kids from across the province and Saskatoon.

From our youngest elementary rookie wrestler to our most elite high school veteran, the Wetaskiwin Wrestling Club, had many highlights for the team this weekend.

As a side note, this tournament was also used for this Zone’s Alberta Western Games trials…and we have several athletes and two coaches on the team!

As for upcoming tournaments, some of the elementary kids are going to Sherwood Park this Saturday, and the jr/sr high wrestlers are going to Lethbridge Dec. 13 and 14th.

With more than 400 athletes from across Alberta and Saskatoon, volunteer dedication is absolutely priceless, and the club is grateful to all the parents and coaches that contributed their time and energy. Our success was also made possible by: Midwest Propane, Best Western Wayside Inn, Domino’s Pizza, Safeway Wetaskiwin and M&M Meats Leduc.

Long time coach Mike Spinney, who also launched the elementary wrestling program four years ago, is officially retiring at the end of this year.
