Wrestling - Boys Varsity

Overview

The Wyoming Seminary wrestling program is considered to be one of the best high school programs in the country. In the past several years, the Blue Knights have produced numerous National Prep Champions and All-Americans and have been consistently ranked within the top five programs in the nation. Sem wrestlers have recently gone on to compete at elite wrestling programs such as Harvard, Northwestern, Cornell, Penn State, Lehigh, Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina State, Virginia Tech, Maryland and many more.

The Blue Knights finished second in the country in the team standings at the National Prep Championships.

Coach Scott Green and the Blue Knights have celebrated 29 individual national titles since he took over the program in 2010.
