On Saturday, April 9th, the first Provincial Championships took place after a two year absence. With The Patriotes of St-Cesaire once again hosting the event, the event was attended by numerous schools and clubs from the province.

It was good to see the mats set up for a tournament

The wrestling was intense and some good matches were seen throughout the day as participation in the Provincial Championships allows eligibility to participate in the various National Championships.
