On Wednesday February 15th the Nile Leopards competed at Neil McNeil High School to qualify for the TDCAA OFSAA championships. Nile Academy is proud to announce that 7 of its wrestlers qualified! The students who qualified include Berkay Oral, Omer Kartal, Celal Colak, Atalay Alpersoy, Kemal Oz, Mehmet Erkan, and Ahmet Karaoglu. This is the first year Nile has been a part of the TDCAA, so being the new team against such tough competition is an incredible feat. The team coach Mr. Kaya has been working diligently with the team, holding 3 practices a week. We here at Nile, are extremely proud of these boys, and we wish them success at the upcoming championships. Go Leopards!
