Nanaimo’s Faye Tuck will take to the mats against Canada’s top wrestling competition.

The Dover Bay Secondary School grappler left this week for the Canadian Juvenile Wrestling Championships, to be held Friday (April 4) and Saturday in Guelph, Ont.

Last month, Tuck placed second at B.C. championships in Prince George. She won three of her matches at provincials by pin and scored 34 points while allowing only four against.

She is also entered in national cadet trials in Guelph this weekend.
