Tehowennathe Patton 2019 has been selected for the Eastern Door Team for the 2020 North American Indigenous Games and is currently training in Kahnawake to prepare. “We wish him luck at the Games, which is an amazing event,” says Coach Moore. Tehowennathe is the first Gryphon to ever compete at this event.
Over the years, we have produced a number of top wrestlers who have gone on to great things, including Greg Rossy 2008 who wrestled for Concordia University and won a silver medal at the prestigious 2009 Canada Games, and David De Cotiis 2012, who competed at prep school in the U.S., followed by a successful wrestling career at Queen’s University.
This year’s team is looking forward to their Cuba Training Camp, which will be held in Havana, Cuba in early February.
