A very small wrestling team participated in the Eastern Canadian Wrestling Championships over the mid-term break. David McCurdy and Callum Lovelace gained valuable experience in the event. David continues to improve, as a rookie, and he learns from every practice and match and his attitude is always positive. He wrestled in the under-21 class and had lots of competition. Callum was in the under 17-age group and he wrestled some of the most competitive wrestlers he has seen in his second year in the sport. He continues to improve as a young wrestler and is always keen to make the necessary adjustments. It was rewarding to see him win his final match of the day.
Téa Racozzi, team captain for the KES group, who wrestles in the club events under the name “Windsor Mat Kings”, had a superb performance over the weekend. As an under 19, she also wrestled in the under 21 division and drew two seasoned and accomplished opponents. In her first match against the 2018 NB age group Female Wrestler of the Year (second in the national team trials, and national championships and gold in the Greco event), Téa won a close one 12-11. She worked hard after being down 0-6. Once she was able to establish upper body control and pressure, she scored on a couple of rolls. Téa’s superior fitness was certainly a great advantage. In the final match, she was pitted against a University of New Brunswick varsity wrestler and Téa was able to outpace her opponent in a 10-0 win and pin. Congratulations, Téa!
