Téa Racozzi led the KES Senior Girls to second overall in the team standings in the High School Wrestling Festival as well as the Nova Scotia Open Provincial championships over the weekend. Sharon Estrada chipped in 5 team points by winning her weight class in the High School event. Ella Brown, Camryn Kleynhans, Elizabeth Usachova and Mona Mohamed added to the points total for the Senior Girls. Téa was upset in the final by a PEI Canada Games wrestler, in the High School event, but more than made up for that in the Sunday event where she won the NS Open Provincial Championship by defeating another PEI Games wrestler (by superiority 10-0 and pin), as well as winning the Most Outstanding Female Wrestler of the tournament. We only took 4 Senior girls to the Sunday event, but look forward to fielding our full competitive team for regionals at the end of February. The Saturday event provided ample experience for some of our up-and-coming junior rookies, Quinn Emery and Callum Lovelace. With more experience, these boys will be exciting to watch.
The team will enjoy a break this weekend, and we will be participating in the Atlantic Club Championship in Truro on February 17.
