    By Connor Hood w/files from U SPORTS on September 4, 2018

    University of Alberta Pandas wrestler Haley Heffel and UAlberta wrestling head coach Owen Dawkins have both been named to the Canadian contingent for the upcoming World University Wrestling Championships, which runs Sept. 4-9 in Goiania, Brazil.

    Heffel is coming off her best season with the Pandas, capturing a Canada West silver medal and U SPORTS bronze medal in the 63kg weight class, while also helping the Pandas claim the overall Canada West Women's Wrestling Championship. 

    Reigning U SPORTS Men’s Wrestling Coach of the Year Owen Dawkins of Alberta – who was on staff at the 2013 Summer Universiade - will be one of four coaches heading to the event, joined by Brock’s Katelyn Lockwood and Concordia’s Victor Zilberman and Robert Moore.

    The Canadian squad also features national team athletes in Concordia’s Vincent De Marinis and Alex Moore, who competed for Canada at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia. 
    Ten of the team’s student-athletes reached the podium at last year’s U SPORTS Wrestling Championships, including 68 kg champion Francis Carter of Concordia – the Men’s Outstanding Wrestler of the Year and a nominee for the BLG Award for U SPORTS Male Athlete of the Year. Five members also come from the perennial national champion Brock Badgers.
