United qualifies seven for BC’s

Langley United Wrestling Club sending seven to provincial high school championships

The Langley United Wrestling Club has qualified seven wrestlers for the B.C. provincial high school championships.

The wrestlers were competing at the Upper Fraser Valley qualifying zone meet over the weekend and three of the club’s wrestlers also found the podium.

Kamil Golowko led the way with a gold medal in his class while Liam Murray and Caitlin Bartakovic each won silver.

Also qualifying for the provincial championships were Manraj Johan (fourth place) and Tyler Tsoukalis (fifth place). Trevor Weltzin and Pritpaul Johal were injured for the Upper Fraser Valley meet but have been successfully petitioned to wrestle at provincials based on past results this season.

Kayla Weltzin also came through with a fifth-place finish in her age group at the Upper Fraser Valley meet.

Devin Hunt, Kasper Henderson, Brent Mueller and Colter Mueller also wrestled at the Upper Fraser Valley meet, but despite strong showings, failed to advance.

Provincials are Feb. 26 to 28.
