NVSS wrestling team update

The wrestlers at NVSS are stopping at nothing to bring home the gold.

The Nechako Valley Secondary School (NVSS) wresting team has been busy winning medals.

The Golden Bear wrestling tournament at the University of Alberta in Edmonton hosted 1000 athletes from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia Jan. 31. There were two divisions – 7-9 and 10-12. NVSS had six participants in each division which brought home three medals in the junior division and two in the senior division.

In the junior division, Aiden Evensen Gr 8 had 31 guys in his division and had eight wins and one loss taking home a bronze medal. Kelsey Stephens Gr 8 got a silver medal after winning three and one loss. Chayla Fowler Gr 9 was undefeated and took home a gold medal.

In the senior division Kayia Conniff Gr 12 and Sarah Ebert Gr 12 both came fourth with three wins and two looses each. Jesse Raymond Gr 11 won four and lost one taking home a silver in his division that had 24 guys. Jennor Nohr was in a division with thirty people (90k) and won five matches leaving with a gold medal.

“I’m very proud of the results. Clearly their hard work is paying off and this will give them some much due confidence going into the next tournament,” Travis Himmilright said, NVSS wrestling coach.

In mid January a group of 18 NVSS wrestlers went to the Northern Lights wrestling tournament in Grand Prairie, Alberta where they also made their school proud by bringing home 13 medals. The team placed third out of 16 teams. The zone championship was held in Prince George this past weekend. Update will be in next issue of Omineca Express.
