Eagles Boxing Club wraps up season

Club recently returned from Victoria, where three athletes competed in provincials.

The Cranbrook Eagles Boxing Club returned from provincials with mixed results but valuable experience under their belts as the season comes to a close.

Fielding three fighters, the club headed to Victoria to take on the province, however, two had to step up a weight class in order to get into the ring.

Phoenix Larsen and Ashton Brock weren’t able to secure matches in their respective classes and moved on up to take on some tougher opponents.

Both lost their matches by decision; Larsen took on Ian Senties in the 52-kg junior ‘B’ division, while Brock lost to Owen Bergen out of Mission.

Eagles coach Bill Watson said Brock was on his way to a win, however, the young fighter took a standing eight-count late in the final round.

“Both myself and fellow coach Larry Adams were very pleased with the performances of all boxers considering all three are still novices,” Watson said.
