The NVSS Vikes wrestling team won the North Central Zone Championships for the 16th time in history.

Wrestlers win Zones

On Feb. 15 NVSS wrestlers won the Zone Championships in Mission.

Wrestling at Nechako Valley Secondary has been around for a long time and has had a long history of success. On Feb. 15 the team brought home the North Central Zone Championships for the 16th time in its history capping a very successful season.

The championship was held in Mackenzie. Rival, PGSS, were favoured to repeat as Zone Champions, but key victories by NVSS wrestlers secured the zone title winning by a single point over PGSS with 48-47 team points.

Training began in November 2013 with a competition schedule beginning in December. The team consistently put in solid results and novice wrestlers gained valuable experience. In January the team traveled to Grande Prairie and Edmonton posting great results, including a 4th place team finish in the highly competitive tournament in Grande Prairie.

The wrestlers were led by grade 11 students and team captains Jennor Nohr with his second and Sara Ebert with her fourth straight zone title. Grade 11 student Jason Yee and grade eight Wyatt Mueller also went undefeated and returned with their first zone title gold.  Grade 11 Jonah Mosher won the silver in the 66 kilogram division. Skyler Smith Clark and Charles Xue brought home bronze medals.

The Provincial Championships will be held in Prince George this year. Nine athletes from NVSS have qualified to compete on February 27 to March 1 at UNBC.

The wrestlers were Eran Bach, Jeremy Derkson, Sarah Ebert, Jonah Mosher, Wyatt Mueller, Jennor Nohr, Mason Schmidt, Skyler Smith-Clark, Charles Xue and Jason Yee.
