Seven members of the Woodstock Wrestling Club will fly to Prince Edward Island next month in hopes of winning the Canada Cup.

WOODSTOCK - It has been a season to remember for the Woodstock Wrestling Club.

Head Coach Gary McQuaid says he's really proud of his students, with five of them collecting medals at Nationals and Provincials.

McQuaid is also really proud of Grade 9 student Wesley Heather, who will represent Team Canada at the Pan American Championship.

"He's right now on a plane to Argentina to wrestle at the Cadet Pan Am, which is Grade 9 and Grade 10. He wrestles 45 kg and the community of Embro was a big help, having raised about $3,000 for him to go to the Pan Am."
