St. John's hosting regional wrestling tourney

Guam - The 2011 Best in the West Wrestling Tournament takes place this Saturday at St. John's High School. Weigh-ins for the tournament is scheduled for tomorrow night at the school in room 26 from 5:00 pm to 8:00. There will be wrestlers from Japan competing, giving our local wrestlers a chance at going up against some world- class competition.

Jerome Fejerang told KUAM Sports, "The caliber of wrestling from Japan should be very high. A lot of these guys are university wrestlers as well as some younger kids. They have high-level wrestlers, from Guam I'm hoping to get the high level wrestlers out that we had last time that qualified for the Oceania for Samoa as well as the other people that may not have been in wrestling recently but have been out of it. We want to get them back into wrestling and have them supporting the federation and wrestling in general through out Guam."

The tournament is open to all, so anyone interested in getting in some mat time is encouraged to come out. This is also an excellent opportunity for our local high school wrestling teams that will be headed to Camp Humphries, S. Korea for the 2011 Far East Wrestling Tournament to get warmed up.

Fejerang added, "For the Oceania Team that qualified and are going to Samoa this is another chance for them to get whatever kinks out that they need to get. They have been training and can work on things that they needed to improve on in the qualifying tournament and work on fine-tuning their skills before they have to go to Samoa and compete."
