Nine representatives of the HHSS Wrestling team competed at the Thunder Wrestling Tournament hosted on Thursday Dec. 13 by St. Mary Secondary School in Cobourg.

It was the third tournament of the season for the Hawks and included more than 100 wrestlers.

While the tournament was relatively small the wrestling calibre was excellent. Teams from as far as Montreal attended the event elevating the level of competition.

Haliburton wrestlers continue to improve and gained valuable mat experience at the tournament. Connie Oh went undefeated to win the gold medal. Logan Heaven wrestled his best tournament of the season but lost in the final to take the silver medal. Ethan Coles and Nic Graham round out the medal count by winning their consolation final to earn bronze.
