Male wrestlers have a good weekend



Western's men's wrestling team competed in the Concordia Stingers Invitational Wrestling Tournament this weekend in Montreal.

As a team, the purple and white placed seventh overall 13 points, while the Brock Badgers crew claiming first place for themselves with 54 points.

Individually, Mitch Dodd, a fourth-year kinesiolgy student, took out a Memorial University Sea-Hawk in order to come first in the final match of the 61 kilogram class.

Western's head coach, Ray Takahashi, said the tournament is always a strong one for the men's team, as it really puts their skills to the test. The next meet for both the men and the women to flex some muscle, is the prestigious McMaster Invitational on Nov 5. From this meet, tournament placings will be used for national team points.

Takahashi will be unable to attend the Hamilton challenge, as he will be in Tokyo, Japan acting as an assistant coach for the Japanese national team at the World University Wrestling Championships. Assistant coach Scott Proctor will cover the Mustang duties, while Takahashi is away for two weeks.
