Good luck to three SD83 wrestlers off to the high school wrestling national championships in Vancouver, March 23-25!
Sam Muddiman and Kynan Dicker from Ranchero Elementary and Andrei Dumetrache from Salmon Arm Secondary are all moving on to the national competition! Coach Duane Kroeker, a teacher at Ranchero, will be accompanying the team.
Kroeker comments the team is looking forward to the nationals. They have been training a lot right now, both with Kroeker at Ranchero as well as with the Spartan Wrestling Club in Kelowna as they ready for the nationals.
