The Fort St. John Wrestling Club attended the Kelly Road Open in Prince George last weekend, earning four medals.

Taylor McLeod used her favourite move, the single leg takedown, to score against her opponent and win a bronze medal.

Robert Ticehurst continues to show promise, capturing a silver medal.

Justin Peck brought home his first silver medal, pulling off a well-timed head and arm throw to take the lead and win in the last twenty seconds of his match.

Darryl McGinnis, still undefeated this season at 6-0, continued to show determination, winning his second gold medal in the elementary class.

Liz Reinbold also took fifth place.

The club will be attending the Western Canada Age Class in Kamloops next weekend, the biggest tournament most of the wrestlers will be attending this year.
