SUMMERSIDE – Wolfpack Wrestling Club members Hannah Taylor and Ligrit Sadiku had a successful trip to Ontario recently.
Both Summerside residents recorded impressive results in two tournaments – Bishop Ryan Invitational in Hamilton and the Matmen Classic tournament in Brampton.
Bishop Ryan Invitational
Taylor recorded a 3-0 (won-lost) record to capture the gold medal in the 60-kilogram Open Division.
Sadiku also went an impressive 3-0 as well to capture the gold medal in the 54-kilogram Open Division.
The Bishop Ryan tournament is one of the most competitive high school tournaments Ontario has to offer, and attracted over 300 wrestlers.
The following day Taylor and Sadiku competed at the Matmen Classic, which is a club tournament, and earned more hardware.
Taylor competed in two separate divisions – cadet and the highly competitive juvenile/junior category.
Taylor went a perfect 7-0 (won-lost) in winning gold in both her divisions. She defeated two time Canadian Champion Taylor Cartwright from the Mariposa Wrestling Club in the Juvenile Division’s gold-medal match.
Sadiku competed in the Juvenile/Junior Division (3-1), and earned a hard-fought silver medal from the Canadian champion and Canada Games gold-medallist Philip Lee, who competes for Team Impact.
The three medal count gave the Wolfpack a 12th-place team standing out of the 35 participating teams.
