McNutt grabs silver

In wrestling action this past weekend, the Western Mustangs travelled to Brock University to compete in the 2004 Canadian Interuniversity Sport championships. The Western women’s team finished fifth overall, while the men placed 12th.

Ontario University Athletics champion Terri McNutt came close to becoming a national champion as well but lost a close gold medal match in overtime. She was forced to settle for silver after falling to Sarah White of Simon Fraser University.

The Western women had a number of other impressive finishes from their grapplers. Laura Skopelianos finished fifth overall in the 48 kg category. Jill McCallum also finished fifth in the 65 kg category, while Sarah Gil finished sixth in 61 kg.

The men’s side was unable to match the success of the women’s squad, but still turned in a good team result and impressive individual efforts. They capped their impressive season by finishing in 12th place, led by Jamie Gillman and Seth Ross.

Gillman finished in fifth spot in the men’s 72 kg weight class, while Ross finished sixth in the 57 kg category.

Overall, it was a very successful championship for the Mustangs which concluded their impressive season. The meet also featured Canadian Olympic champion Daniel Igali.

He defeated Zoltan Hunyady in the 74 kg class to earn a spot on the 2004 Olympic team.
