Bucs finish at the top

Beamsville District Secondary School wrestlers take top honours

The Beamsville Bucs won the boys, the girls and combined titles at Niagara Region High School Athletic Association (NRHSAA) for Zone 3/4.

At Jr SOSSA, they won the boys and combined titles and at SOSSA they won the girls and combined titles.

To the competition at OFSAA, (Ontario Federation of School Athletic Assciations) Beamsville District Secondary School sent a very young team made up mostly of Juniors: Reet Chahil, Alex Freer, Phillip Truong, Amen Quereshi and Jessica Tilmanns.

They all gained valuable experience for future OFSAA championships while the two seniors Nikki Cubitt (77kg) and Rachael Swinson (44kg ) dominated their weight classes.

Both girls were up against the top 32 wrestlers from the province in their respective categories. They won five matches each by either pin or technical superiority en route to their respective gold medal performances.

This marks the end of Nikki’s wrestling career which also included being an OFSAA bronze medalist, a provincial age group champion and a member of team Ontario which won the Canada Summer Games. Rachael will be back for one more year at BDSS and have the opportunity to defend her title next year at OFSAA.

Up next for Rachael is the Canadian championships in New Brunswick in April where she will try and improve upon her bronze medal performance from last year.
