Wrestling lasses land silver at CIS Championship

By Sean Nyilassy

The beautiful Brock University campus played host to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Wrestling Championship Mar. 3-4. Since the ability to walk, and the ability to talk make you eligible to go to Brock, many Dinos wrestlers qualified. However, these low standards made contenders from Brock as tough as nails.

The lady Dinos, with 50 points, managed to edge out the mobile and ambient Brock squad, in third with 40 points, but were unable to conquer the Simon Fraser University Clan, who clambered to the top with 64 points. On the men’s side, the Brockefellers rocked their way to the gold with 59 points. The Dinos men trailed with 21 points in ninth.

The women earned themselves a pair of golds. Brittanee Laverdure won the 55-kilogram class and Justine Bouchard toppled the 63-kilogram division. Megan Goldsmith earned the Dinos’ solitary silver in the 82-kilogram caste, being downed by the Clan in the final. While the Dinos didn’t win any bronze medallions, Brandy Ens, Erin Yamashita and Leah Callahan were all fourth in their respective groups.

The men managed just one medal, with Joe Bentley winning the 68-kilogram faction. Beamer Comfort placed fifth in the 90-kilogram partition.

With these results in hand, the Dinos’ season is over. The ladies will try harder than Hulk Hogan to reach wrestling domination next year, while the men must make their way up a few rungs of the ladder before being crowned kings.
