The Williams Lake Wrestling Club’s youngsters hit the mat in 100 Mile House early march for Wrestlemania — the 100 Mile House Wrestling Club’s annual kid tournament.

“This is an elementary-only tournament,” said WLWC president and head coach Sonia Conrod.

“We brought nine kids down to compete and all nine came back with medals.”

Student coaches Braden Conrod and Haleigh Stubitch also travelled along with the team to help coach, while carded local officials Conlan Sprickerhoff and Kerry Normand provided the refereeing.

“It was a great experience for everyone,” Sonia said.

Kindergarten grappler Trey Alphonse brought home a silver medal for the black ‘n’ blue.

“He was a beast out there taking on bigger kids,” Sonia said.

Alphonse’s Kindergarten classmate Gage Davis also fought his way to a silver-medal win, while Will Stratton picked up bronze medal for his efforts.

Grade 2 wrestler Coda McLain won fourth in his division and picking up a participation medal, while brother Chevy McLain, grade 3, wrestled hard to nab a bronze medal in the division. Kalob Scaiano, in the Grade 2 division, grappled to the gold medal.

In the Grade 5 class Nathan Preston picked up a bronze medal, while WLWC newcomer Tyleen Scaiano swept through her weight class to pickup the gold medal.

“She didn’t have a point score on her [the entire tournament] … incredible,” Sonia said.

Lastly, Grade 6 wrestler Braydon Hall was the winner of a bronze medal in his division.

“All the kids were awesome,” Sonia said. “The WLWC really pulled together as a team and our student coaches were amazing as well.

“They love working with the younger athletes. We’re excited to start a new season and hope to see many new faces on the mat next season.”

Coming up next for the WLWC is Smackdown, which will cap off the club’s season.
