Featherston wrestlers continue winning

October 13, 2023 October 2023, Sports No Comments

Archer Coulson inspects his gold medal.

The penultimate tournament of the year the Wellington Regional Championships were held at Kapiti College on Saturday 9 September. 

A strong team from Featherston attended with some of our junior wrestlers building towards this tournament through two terms of training. It also signalled the end of the junior and intermediate season.

Medals went to Manaia Sinclair, Archer Coulson, Charlimarie Sargent and Taine Sargent from our junior class. Unfortunately regular competition wrestler Ashlyn Sargent was ruled out injured. This group have competed at the tri-series events and finished strongly in the regional competition.

The senior class was represented by Nate George, Angus and Tommy Read with Wairangi Sargent ruled out by injury. 

The season isn’t quite over for these wrestlers as we wish them well for their shot at the National Championships in Tauranga in early October.

The National Secondary Schools tournament saw Duncan Allen-Alloway, Angus Read and Tommy Read all crowned with National Schools titles winning gold representing Kuranui and Rathkeale Colleges.

We would like to take a moment to thank our supporters with a particular shout out to Scotty’s Meats.
