Nechako Valley Secondary School wrestlers had 16 athletes – 11 boys and 5 girls – travel to Kelly Road for the North Central Zone Championship.

All 16 athletes qualified for provincials. The team won both the boys and girls division. It is the first time in 14 years that the team has won both titles in the same year.

“I think we are well positioned to repeat for several years as we are a very young team.  We lose only four athletes this year,” said Travis Himmelright, NVSS wrestling coach.

The team started the competition with 10 straight victories and ended the competition with a team record of 33W-13L. Jennor Nohr was voted zone MVP.

The NVSS wrestling team will travel to Abbotsford Feb. 25 for the Provincial Championships.  Scores reported as made available.
