Just before the March Break, 3 members of the Mentor wrestling team (Sofia Aloia, Justin Eng and Gurjot Ravi) participated in the OFSAA wrestling championships being held at the Powerade Center in Brampton.
Gurjot was competing in her first OFSAA tournament and she did not look out of place winning her second match and just nearly losing her other two matches. This year, Gurjot has made some huge strides in her technique and she will no doubt strive to get back to OFSAA in her grade 12 year.
Justin finished in 7th place and his only 2 losses in the tournament were to the eventual gold and bronze medalists. Justin has a bright future ahead of him as he enters into his Grade 11 year next season.
Sofia Aloia finished her already decorated 4-year wrestling career at Mentor with an OFSAA bronze medal at this year’s championship. In the bronze medal match, Sofia had to defeat a girl from Georgetown who she had never beaten and who she had already lost to twice this season. Sofia executed the perfect game plan and wrestled the match of her life. Her coaches wish her luck as Sofia plans to continue wrestling next year in college.
