Fourth, Fourth & Sixth for Algoma U Thunderbird Wrestlers at 2016 York Open

The Algoma Thunderbirds wrestling team was in Toronto on Sunday November 20th competing at the 2016 York Open tournament.

“Our squad started off strong, beginning the competition with a 5-0 record, but ran into some tough competition in the later rounds. For our young team, this was a great experience and allowed us to work on many of the concepts the student-athletes have been working for the season. Being the last competition for our team before the winter break, we have plenty of time to work on the mistakes that were made and to start off the second half of the season strong at the Brock Open.”

Broderick Collison finished in fourth place in the men’s 54-kg weight class. Collison went 2-2 on the mats.

Noodin Shawanda also finished in fourth place. He went 1-2 in the men’s 57-kg division.

Stephen Kreyenbuhl earned sixth place in the men’s 82-kg weight class. He went 2-3 on the mats.
