Some local youth are having success in wrestling.
 
The Strathcona Wrestling Club sent a handful of competitors to the Alberta Open Wrestling Championships earlier this month, including six from the Fort.
 
"It was really good, a little bit hectic since they had it over two days and had over 500 wrestlers," said Strathcona Wrestling Club coach Evelyn Li. "This year has just boomed, we now have over 50 wrestlers. It's been a ride this year since we've been working so hard to build the club."
 
Gold medalists include Ryder Kidd-Mercier in the kids male category, Raven Scott in the novice female and Lochlan Scott in the bantam male category.
 
Taran Goring took home a silver and a couple of bronze medals in the juvenile and junior male division.
 
"Taran's our oldest kid and he provides that leadership on what hard work looks like and it's just kind of the norm now for the group," added Li.
 
Samantha Thorson took home fourth in female cadet freestyle and participated in the inaugural women's greco roman event.
 
Bryce Goring finished fifth in bantam male.
 
Next up for the Strathcona Wrestling Club will be nationals in Edmonton from April 13-15.
