Trio of Langley wrestlers looking for podium finish at provincial championships

Emily McLean, Ben Smyth and Donovan Wilk have qualified for the provincial wrestling championships.

The Langley Secondary students are part of the Langley United Wrestling Club and qualified after strong performances at the Upper Fraser Valley zone finals, which were held in Abbotsford two weeks ago.

McLean was the zone champion in her weight class, while Smyth and Wilk finished third and fourth, respectively, in their divisions.  The top five from each boys division and four from each girls division qualified.

The B.C. high school provincial wrestling championships begin today (Thursday) and run until March 2 at the Island Savings Centre in Duncan.
