Cascades’ Hildenbrandt named Canada West third star of the week

Brad Hildenbrandt of the University of the Fraser Valley wrestling program has been named the Canada West male third star of the week.

The sophomore grappler from Surrey, B.C. had a phenomenal weekend in Saskatoon, winning gold in the heavyweight division at the Canada West wrestling championships.

In a very strong men’s 120 kg weight class, Hildenbrandt surrendered just five points en route to the title. Just one match – an 8-3 decision in his tourney opener against Jordan Tholl of the Regina Cougars – went the distance. He wrapped up the other four early, three by technical superiority and one via pin. It’s the second career Canada West medal for Hildenbrandt, who won silver at 90 kg in 2015.

Hildenbrandt is one of four Cascades wrestlers to qualify for the U SPORTS Wrestling National Championships, Feb. 24-26 at the University of Winnipeg.

The Canada West male first and second stars of the week, respectively, were Marcus Peterson (Alberta Golden Bears wrestling) and Elgin Pearce (Calgary Dinos hockey).
