Coming off a high at the OFSSA Wrestling Championships held in Guelph, Ontario in March, 17 year old Alexander MacIntyre ranked in the top six at the 2013 Cadet and Juvenile Wrestling Nationals held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan April 5 & 6.
Alex is a grade 12 student attending Robert Land Academy. With a first place finish in his weight category at OFSAA, Alex was invited to be part of the Junior Brock Badgers Wrestling Club representing Team Ontario at the Nationals this year. He finished with 4 wins in 7 matches, ranking in the top 6 out of 24 wrestlers in the 76 kg weight category. This is Alex's second year wrestling at the Nationals, finishing in the top 8 in 2012 in New Brunswick.
Alex says that he was "blown away to have made it this far after just 4 years of wrestling at RLA", and that "you can achieve anything at Robert Land Academy." He was also impressed to see such amazingly talented wrestlers from all across Canada come together in one place.
Alex plans to continue wrestling next year when he attends university. When asked where he plans to attend, he says that "he is still undecided and is keeping his options open."
