A Sarnia Wrestler struck gold recently at the 2017 Cadet and Juvenile Provincial Championships.

Nathan Moro, representing the Sarnia-Bluewater Wrestling Club, clinched first in the 76kg juvenile category at the Brampton, Ont. meet.

“He wrestled really well, made some great throws. He’s right at the top of his game right now,” said Tim Allen, one of the club’s coaches.

Moro, a Grade 12 student at St. Patrick’s High School, was one of 38 wrestlers who represented the Sarnia-based club. Twenty-two of them had top six finishes in their respective categories.

Howard Moffatt (cadet, 76 kg) and Mya Sandrin (cadet, 43 kg), each won silver, and Quinn Jennings, (cadet, 76 kg), Brent Swain (cadet, 85 kg), Taijah Allen, (cadet, 49 kg) and Emma McLaughlin (juvenile, 69 kg), earning bronze.

“It was probably one of the highest level of competition I’ve seen in a few years. The athletes were really extremely good all around,” said Allen.
