Lakehead's wrestling program was on the road in Whitby this past weekend at the Greater Toronto Area Open, and placed 3rd on the men's side, while the LU women finished 5th. Top individual performances were Aislynn Torfason, who won the 59kg weight class, and Colten Woznow took 2nd place in the 90kg division.

Lakehead women who finished in the top 6 in their respective weight divisions were Jessica Bershatzky (4th, 51kg), Karleah Bonk (5th, 63kg) and Alexi Kreps (6th, 55kg).

Other standout Lakehead wrestlers on the mens' side included Gaston Tardif (3rd, 57kg), Sam Driedger (3rd, 68kg), Scott Christians (4th, 72 Kg), Dustin Helwig (5th, 57kg) and Nik Wilson (6th, 82 kg).

Lakehead coach Brock Curtis on the teams' performance:

"Everyone wrestled well, but we all learned what we each need to work on... On another note, it was great to see Colten back in the line up as this was his first tournament back as a varsity wrestler since the CIS Championships two years ago... I'm excited to see our team wrestle in upcoming tournaments as I think if we continue to work on some little details, we'll see a big difference in individual placings"

The Lakehead wrestling team will send a small group of athletes to the New York Athletic Club Open November 20-22nd, with the next major team competition being the Ontario Senior Championships the following weekend, November 27-29, at Brock University in St. Catharines.
