November 16, 2023
Petersburg High School’s wrestling team traveled south last weekend for the annual Bill Weiss tournament in Ketchikan.
Across the course of the two day meet—one of the largest events in Southeast Alaska— several PHS wrestlers earned their place on the podium against tough competition.
Petersburg freshman Eli Anderson earned the team’s highest placement, taking second in the 150 pound bracket.
“Being able to go that far at such a young age is pretty impressive, so it was a good showing and I’m happy that he got to where he was,” said head coach James Valentine.
