And here's another update on Trent Doris' journey to the World Ball Hockey Championships this summer in Austria. Not a surprise, but quite obvious by this story how someones character crosses over through sports. "work ethic" "tenacious" sounds like things we know Trent to bring.

The 27th Annual Alberni Invitational Wrestling Tournament is scheduled for the Alberni Valley Multiplex February 4-6, 2010. The Invitational will bring over 600 competitors from all over B.C. to the Valley for three days of intense wrestling action in five different age groups .

The Alberni Invitational is widely considered the most prestigious high school wrestling tournament in B.C. and has received recognition across Canada. The tournament begins on Thursday, February 4th with weigh-ins for boys and girls all 3 divisions at 7:00 p.m. at Glenwood.

The Alberni Invitational tournament action will run all day on Friday, February 5th from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Alberni Valley Multiplex. There are age groups for School Age (gr 6-8), Cadet (grade 9-10) and Juvenile (grade 11-12). There will be lunch (11:30 am-12:30 pm) and dinner (4:30-5:30 pm) breaks. An Elementary Division returns this year with over 100 local youngsters expected to participate. The Elementary division runs from 12-3 pm Friday.

Friday night at 7:00 p.m. will feature the ever-popular semi-finals. Friday night will also feature the Open division where alumni and college wrestlers can test their skills. The new North Island College team will have wrestlers entered. The conclusion of the rest of the preliminary matches in the age class divisions will begin Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. Medal matches will start at about 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning. The finals in the Schoolboy/girl division (grade 6-8) and Cadet (gr 9-10) will start at noon on Saturday. The Juvenile (grade 11-12) finals start at 2:30 pm on Saturday and wrap up by 3:30 p.m. There is not cost for spectators for the Invitational.

Not only do local fans have an opportunity for some great competition at the Invitational, you also will once again see very competitive Alberni wrestlers. The ADSS Boys team is currently ranked #8 in the province and will likely battle it out with over 60 other schools for the team title in the Juvenile and Cadet divisions. These teams include #1 and 2 ranked Burnaby Central and Burnaby South and other top teams such as Guildford Park of Surrey and Rick Hansen of Abbostford.

In the Juvenile Girls division ADSS is ranked # 2 in BC with WJ Mouat of Abbotsford #1. Port Moody Secondary, Terry Fox of Port Coquitlam and Carson Graham of North Vancouver round out the top 4 girls teams. In the Schoolboy/girl division Alberni will have strong teams from Neill and Dunn Middle Schools and both schools should be in the top 10. Ucluelet Secondary will also have wrestlers in most age divisions.

It will be an exciting few days of wrestling action in the place many observers call the Wrestling Capital of BC – Port Alberni!
