The Moose Jaw Kinsmen Wrestling Club made its way to Warman, SK on the March 1st weekend, where more than 270 athletes from across the province participated in the 2019 Pupsel Invitational tournament. The local club sent 28 wrestlers, with 26 wrestlers bringing home medals including, 13 gold, eight silver and five bronze.
Coach Lee Cushway said the positive momentum from the Moose Jaw tournament a couple of weeks ago has continued and the results are continuing to show.
“There’s no question that our wrestlers are feeling confident right now” said Cushway.
Coach Kyle Alexander added that maintaining focus gets tougher for these kids as the season wears on.
“Without a doubt, the last month of the season is the toughest to keep the kids motivated, but they were absolutely dialed in this weekend and the results speak for themselves” said Alexander.
The club will spend the next three weeks preparing for provincials, which will be held in Regina on March 30.
