(Oct. 24, 2013) The Memorial wrestling team will travel to Montreal this weekend for their first interuniversity competition of the season at the Concordia Open on Sunday.


Robert Hermanto Memorial will send six wrestlers to compete in the meet. Robert Hermanto (pictured on right), Robert Jewer, Steven Adams and Ian Janes will be competing in the men’s draw while Carla Chaytor and Myfanwy Price will be representing Memorial on the women’s side.


The veteran Chaytor feels that training has been going well in preparation for the Open.


“Match simulations have been going very well with some excellent energy on the mats and within the group,” she said, “Personally I’ve been aiming to initiate moves and score more points and will look to translate that to whomever I draw at the Open.”


Chaytor feels this weekend presents a good opportunity for the team. “I think that it will be an excellent weekend to show how training has progressed and what we have to work on going forward.”
