Wrestling provides student-athletes with mechanisms to build character and control habits. Wrestling is a sport of control. It is of control of ones body, the opponent and emotions. Almost all adults who were former wrestlers will tell you how formative the sport was in their maturation and adult development.
Wrestlers compete against others in their same weight class. There are currently 14 boys weight classes (106 lbs, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220 and 285) and 16 girls weight classes (101, 106, 111, 116, 121, 126, 131, 137, 143, 150, 160, 170, 189, 235) in Ohio.
Wrestling conditioning is going on now with weightlifting every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 230p-4p. Open Mats are Fridays 415p-515p in the wrestling building. The first official practice of the season is November 13, 230p-5p. After that practice is every day after school and some weekends. Our season is in flux right now as we schedule our matches to comply with Covid-19 guidelines, but it normally runs through the middle of February with the District and State tournaments ending the first of March.
