This edition of High School Huddle covers the Saskatchewan High Schools Athletic Association (SHSSA) wrestling and curling provincial championships.

In wrestling gold medal matches, 54 athletes competed in 27 different weight classes.

On the girl’s side there were 11 bouts.

Gold medallists from Saskatoon high schools include:

  • Bella Brown from Centennial Collegiate in the 44 kg weight class;
  • Saige Evertman from St. Joseph High School in the 64 kg weight class; and
  • Danaye Holynski from Tommy Douglas Collegiate in the 80 kg weight class.

This was Evertman’s second provincial title in as many years.

“I was a little bit, not nervous, but I was respectful to her ability because we kind of went back and forth over the years so I was just ready to wrestle a good match with her,” Evertman said.

“I was just really excited to win after all four years of training really hard it was really nice to end the season with a win.”
