Two local wrestlers have made Team Ontario which will compete at the Canada Summer Games in Sherbrooke, Que. later this summer.
Laura Barr, in the 90 kg. division, made the Ontario team as did Stratford’s Clayton Pye at 75 kg. at the Summer Games trials in Beamsville earlier this month. Barr is a member of the St. Marys Wrestling Club.
Pye, a Grade 12 Northwestern student, had to defeat the No. 1 and No. 3 seeds in Canada to make the provincial squad.
Barr, a Grade 12 student at Medway in Arva, and Pye will be training with Team Ontario and travelling to the U.S. for tournaments in preparation for the Canada Summer Games in Sherbrooke, Aug. 2-17.
Two other members of the St. Marys club, Amber Fergusson, of Seaforth, and Jamie Steckly, of Stratford, also competed at the Summer Games trials, but did not make the Ontario wrestling team.
