Wrestlers from Elphinstone Secondary School came home from the provincial high school wrestling championships in Prince George last weekend with some impressive results.

Alex Ratcliff finished second in her weight class, Alysha Monk was fourth, Nolan O'Reilly seventh and Scout Stipec finished with a win and two losses in her first provincial championship experience.

"Alex and Nolan both had good results," said head coach Clint Fox. "Alex finally got her provincial podium finish and she lost to her North Shore rival in the final. Nolan finished his wrestling career by showing the great team leadership, sportsmanship and dedication to the sport that he is known for. Scout had a good tournament. She was able to wrestle at the highest school level in the province. Scout has a good career ahead of her."

Fox said Alysha was hoping for more in her final high school wrestling experience.

"She went into the tournament as the first seed and the results were almost the inverse of what was predicted," Fox said. "Number one finished fourth, number two finished third, and the third and fourth seeds wrestled in the final for first and second. I guess that's why they don't hand out the medals before the competition begins. Alysha will train for the nationals with the wrestling club on the North Shore and use her experiences from the B.C.'s to help prepare her for a great tournament."
