Snoqualmie Valley Wrestling Club is garnering plenty of heavy metal this winter.

The club team took first at the Sedro-Wolley Steelclaw Tournament, held Sunday, Dec. 11

Thirty-three young club members took part, winning several first, second and third place medals. Several teammates just missed out on medals, but wrestled the best of their careers. For some, it was only their first tournament.

The Valley club took second in the Ferndale tournament, held Dec. 4.

Snoqualmie Valley Wrestling Club teaches fundamentals and advanced skills to boys and girls ages 5 to 14. No prior experience is needed. Club members have the opportunity for matches and tournaments with other clubs and wrestlers of similar ages, weights, and experience.

The club participates in the Western Washington Kids Wrestling League which is dedicated to novice wrestlers with 2 years or less of experience. Wrestlers with more experience will be able to wrestle at the USA Wrestling tournaments.

Parent volunteers play a big role in the club's success. Coach Misti Marenco said parents and coachers worked long hours to make the tournament a success.
