This past weekend, the Brock Badgers wrestling teams competed in the Guelph Open, taking home both the men’s and women’s team titles. “We had a very successful weekend,” said head coach Marty Calder.
While the Badgers had great success as a team, Calder also praised the individual athletes who improved their performances from the previous week. “Individually, there were some athletes who made big adjustments.”
The Badgers will travel to Western this weekend and hope to continue their success as they inch closer to the OUA championships.
“We have two tournaments this weekend in our final preparation leading up to the OUA championships. We’re looking forward to the challenges ahead, and having the opportunity to compete for both the OUA and U Sports championships.”
In addition, the Brock wreslting program is sending club athletes worldwide this month to various countries, including Cuba, Iran, Sweden, and Ukraine.
