After several years away from the sport, MHS Royals Wrestling is up and running in our new facility with a dedicated wrestling room. Coach Loeffler and Coach Salzl are very excited by how well the team is performing for a first-year program!
At the first tournament of the year at Walter Murray in December, the team went 29-15 in matches against long established teams. Finishing first overall were: Ashton K-M., Brody N., Toryn S-B., Brody D. Placing second were: Brooke Z., Christian S., Quinton P. Finishing in third: Cadderly K., Connor L.
In January the team had a great weekend in Warman at the Scratch & Claw Tournament. As a team, our wrestlers’ record was 25 wins and 13 losses in matches wrestled. Wrestlers finishing in first included: Ashton K-M., Tatyana L. (in her first tournament ever), Quinton P., Toryn S-B., and Brooke Z. (who won four matches by pin in a combined time of 56 seconds!). Brody D. and Brody N. both went 3 and 1 to finish second. Third place finishers included Cadderly K., Ryan P., Kaden S., and Christian S. Fourth place went to Arwen C.
This past weekend was another good one for the team. 8 out of 10 wrestlers earned medals in Moose Jaw: Gold – Brody N., Quinton P. Silver – Brody D., Brooke Z., Christian S., Tatyana L., Toryn S-B. Bronze – Ashton K-M.
The future looks bright for the Royals Wrestling team!
