After a very long absence, wrestling has again been added to the Facey Athletics program. The team began practices in December and have been working hard ever since. Between dual meets at several Edmonton Area high schools (Ross Shepherd, Harry Ainlay, Jasper Place, to name a few), the newly formed team wrestled in the U of Alberta tournament and an invitational tournament at Memorial High. Results improved over the season as wrestlers worked towards a berth in the provincial tournament being hosted at Bev Facey this year. To earn a berth, wrestlers needed to finish top 5 in the Metro Edmonton Zone Championship. All Facey wrestlers stepped up and did well at Zones. The Girl’s Team, with 6 wrestlers won the Zone championship trophy with 4 gold medals (Cassidy Levey, Katie Mulkay, Michelle Mulkay, and Emma Funk). The Boy’s Team with 4 wrestlers finish fourth with 2 gold medals (Matt Carpenter, Ethan Collins). The two teams combined to win the Metro Zone Aggregate Team Championship.
Girls: Cassidy Levey, Katie Mulkay, Katelyn Whiteside, Mackenzie Mulkay, Michelle Mulkay, and Emma Funk.
Boys: Nicholas Noppers, Matt Hart, Calem Amy, and Ethan Collins.
