Dover wrestler secures bronze

Nanaimo’s Kimberly van Hest finished another strong season as third best in the country on the wrestling mat.

The Dover Bay grappler pinned down a podium finish in a tough weight class at nationals in New Brunswick, said coach Andrew Tuck in a press release.

“Her bronze medal bout was a nail biter in which she had to come from behind and surprise her opponent with a spectacular pin,” he said.

It was the second-straight national bronze medal for van Hest.

Also showing well from Dover Bay was Faye Tuck, who finished in fourth place while only losing to one opponent.
