Both rookie & veteran wrestlers were at the top of their game this week at the Mother Theresa tournament T. Yusuf, Brooklyn, Gisele, Isa, Ismail and Elisabeth all collected medals in preparation for OFSAA qualifying next week!

The ravens wrestling team competed in their first open tournament (no more rookie category) this week. With such a difficult task for our relativity young team, expectations were tempered. 
Our rookies wrestlers stepped up to the challenge. Yusuf Khan and Brooklyn Pike brought the home the bronze. Jason Nguyen, Christine Tran and Caitlin McMann all fell one win away from the podium (coming in 4th ). Karim Hassan, Saravanan Rajeswaran, and Malia Ghadan picked up their first victory against a veteran wrestler (Sara Armstrong lost a nail bitter by 1 point!! ).  
Not to be outdone, all four of our vets brought home hardware. Gisele Dang after a tough first loss, strung together 4 wins in a row to get the bronze. Glowing in undefeated gold were Isa Khan, Ismail Ayyoub, and Elisabeth Cherkas. Please congratulate the wrestlers on their success, and wish them luck. The knock out / OFSAA qualifying tournaments begin next week!
