It’s been a busy, yet successful past couple of weeks for area amateur wrestlers. At the recently held Greater Montreal Athletic Association annual high school wrestling championships, held at Kahnawake Survival School (KSS), several Pointe Claire-based John Rennie High School competitors showed their wares. Capturing gold were Anthony Pirocacos in the 87-lb, division, Joel Lanni in the 132lb., division, Kristopher Pirocacos in the 145lb., division and Derek Lanni in the 163lb., division. In girls’ action, Kelsey Martin also won gold. Vincent Demarinis won silver in the 95lb., division, while Marc Wilson and Kevin Renshaw earned bronze respectively in the 153lb., and 173lb., divisions. As a team, John Rennie finished third, with KSS second and Selwyn House first.

Meanwhile, the annual provincial wrestling championships occurred last weekend in St. Cesaire with a strong representation from the Pierrefonds-based Riverdale Wrestling Club. Five returned home with gold, including Angus Cowell in the 55-kilogram benjamin and 56-kilogram cadet classes, Anthony Pirocacos in the 37-kilogram bantam class, Ryan Estwick in the 59-kilogram bantam class and Kristopher Pirocacos in the 63-kilogram cadet class. Meanwhile, Matthew Duford and George Akirov earned silver respectively in the 69- and 120-kilogram cadet classes.
