Two wrestlers from Victoria, Brett Matthews of the Victoria Bulldogs and Warren Clark of Esquimalt High, made the trip to Simon Fraser University for the annual War on the Floor high school wrestling tournament this past weekend.
Matthews came third in the 80-kilogram category, a strong indicator for provincials this spring.
Clark was fifth in the 70-kg division.
“I have high expectations for Clark, a Grade 11 already looking to crack the top six in B.C,” said Esquimalt coach Mike Thompson.
