Wrestling NS Super Weekend

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Feb 19, 2020 8:43:31 AM

Five of our wrestlers took advantage of the opportunity to train with World Bronze Medalist and Brock Wrestling Women’s Team Captain,   Hannah Taylor, and Canadian Olympian,   Saeed Azarbayjani, over the weekend at the Wrestling Nova Scotia Super Weekend. The event took place over two days and was a great opportunity for our wrestlers to learn from the best. I helped to facilitate the coaches’ clinic during the camp while our wrestlers trained very hard and reviewed very classic and practical standing and takedown techniques. Our student-athletes who attended the clinic included:   Callum Lovelace (Grade 11), Bella Turner-Galaise (Grade 10), Megan Mattie (Grade 10), Greg Otto (Grade 10) and  Stanislav Matkovskyi (Grade 10). Bella and Greg took advantage of the opportunity to test themselves on the mat with Saeed, who once helped coach Greg’s brother, alumnus   Riley Otto (2010), at Western.
