Rimbey Boxing Club Report

Submitted

Since the successful Rimbey Card Oct. 31, members of Rimbey Boxing Club travelled to Edmonton for the sub-novice tournament (two bouts or less). We sent junior Ryley Carruthers (47 kg) and senior Gabe Siebold (75 kg).

Carruthers had two bouts in his division and won both with some good boxing. Siebold had a good bout but fell short and suffered his first loss. On the weekend of Nov 21 and 22, the club travelled to Lethbridge for the 2010 Alberta Provincials. This tournament was held for both novice boxers (10 bouts or less) and for open boxers (over 10 bouts).

Carruthers boxed a division rival (48 kg male) from Lac La Biche and won the division gold medal. BryAnna Hollingsworth out-boxed her Lethbridge opponent in the 48 kg female category to win the gold medal.

In the open division (women 69 kg) Kandi Wyatt won her bout against Loretta Armstrong of the Panther Boxing Club (Edmonton). This was her seventh gold medal in Alberta Provincials, qualifying her to compete in the National Boxing Tournanent.

Daniel Peacock boxed Parah Ahlowat from the Southside Boxing Club (Edmonton), winning a very close match in the 60 kg category. As an aside, he was happy to get his 85-year-old grandmother to watch her first boxing match.)

In an exciting bout, Siebold won the gold medal for the 75 kg division.

All in all it was an exciting and successful boxing tournament with Rimbey boxers winning five gold medals against boxers from across the province.

The next tournament the Rimbey boxing Club will be sending boxers to is the Bronze Gloves in Edmonton, Jan. 16 and 17. The Bronze Gloves tournament is limited to boxers with four bouts or less. We are hoping to send four or five boxers for this tournament. We invite you to join us.
